Re: the best ccmp 450 heli??

If you are going to crash a lot (oh and you might if you are new to helis), then get a clone and lots of spare parts. Much cheaper than a name brand. I started and crashed many cheap HK clones (built for under $200 and $20 up to 50 for repair). A cheap HK clone is something like $10 including a plastic head. I bought 4 and thought of using others as spare parts. I was actually able to build 3 of them, and still flying 2.

I bought a Trex 450 super sport, and it is a far better heli, but I didn't crash is as often because I was 'trained'. When I did crash, it did cost me more to repair.

Of course, a simulator is the cheapest way to go as far as repair costs and flying in any condition goes.

Regarding shaft vs belt, I am converting mine to shaft. Easier to repair as a lot of dissassembly is needed to replace a belt. Cost is about the same once you have the gearboxes in place (new belt is $15, same as shaft crash kit). But belt is more forgiving if you are still bumping and crashing...gears will strip, belt will slip.
