Yes and no...

You'll have a flying 700 for unbelievable price.

Both are discontinued (I assume you know this). The 700 is known to have weak tail gears and a somewhat underpowered motor. The motor can be replaced (or maybe you don't fly pro 3D?), but the tail gears I believe were never really fully rectified. It may/will be hard to find parts. The electronics are half decent and will transfer to a new airframe and you'll still have a good deal.

Great deals on both if they are bnf or even without fbl. Make sure the 600x has a castle esc and not the bad eflite one. Eflite bec is fine though.

Yes 75A should be enough for most flying. Though if you do hardcore 3d you may need to upgrade.

Default 700x

Under power? Mmm... the Heli is light, it's plenty yeah it can be upgraded mine after some 300 flights has no issues.- & that goes for the gears too! You must shim those to perfection a BNF 700x for $500.00 !!!! Buy IT!

If I don't like it, part it out you're $$$ back out of it servos $150 frame $ 250 esc motor $ 100 beast x $ 100 that's over the $ 500 already!

I like the 700x it's a good buy! That's like .50 or less on the dollar!

Parts are all over eBay ... And here I picked up a second frame for almost no money !

My two cents ...
