Check out the Falcon 3D at Hobby Lobby. Playing with it now. Tough little bird. Comes with brushless motor, HH gyro, Lipo batt and charger. Buy nimh batts for the trans. and your off. Shaft drive tail that I consider less problems than the belt drive. I have it on an old 6 yr old Lite Machines that is still working fine. Just got through programming the Falcon into the Spektrum DX7 for more programming parameters. Rock stable even in the wind.
Tried for my kamikazi pilots licence. Flunked the test.

I have an X400 - and it flies great - very similiar in build to the TREX. I just got a Trex SE - should have it flying in a few weeks). I will finally be able to compare these two helis.
The X400 gets crapped on a alot, I don't know why. Side by side it has very similiar mechanics and although the X400's boom is a bit shorter you can put on a Trex XL boom no prob - in fact many of the TREX parts are interchangeable. They are both CCPM direct link to swash, belt tail drive, 400 size machines with optional aluminum upgrades, they benefit from the same electronics HS65s, GY401, ... the X400 is fair bit cheaper in kit form for first time buyers (as HDE). People say the X400 is more stable out of of the box, I am not sure if this is true since I have never flown a stock Trex.
I plan to post a comparison of my upgraded X400 and the SE in the future.
