Which deal is the best?

Hi guys,

I'd like your opinion on which of those heli seems the best deal? Which heli seems the best?

I don't have much details outside of what's written in his post on this forum unfortunately.

#RTF# Century Predator= $1000 =$100 = $900-$100=$800
#RTF# Bergen gassers = $1200 =$100 = $1100-$100=$1000
#RTF# Benzin trainers= $1400 =$150 = $1250-$150=$1100
#RTF# XLV Benzin = $3000 =$200 = $2800-$300=$2500

Let me know what you think. I'm thinking that the benzin trainers.

I'm looking for a large heli which can carry a large DSLR.

Re: Which deal is the best?

There's basically no information about the setup on any of these helis. Nobody can form any kind of educated opinion with the information available.

Based entirely on the little you posted - Century. It's the cheapest of the lot, and they're good, reliable helis.

Re: Which deal is the best?

I have a predator (nitro) and it's been a solid reliable heli. Parts are easily available also as there is a few online shops that I've dealt with that are Canadian and just down the street from the Canadian distributor for century. The other heli's are good quality heli's also but I'd think parts availability would be an issue.

Re: Which deal is the best?

I am thinking there was some pictures available. When they first listed the stuff. This is Marcels Toys correct. My choice would probably be the century also ,it is the cheapest of the four Parts should be avaiable at Pivotal Hobbies in BC . Our own Phil Noel is the Canadian Century suplier
