Great source for homework....

Might even strike a decent deal with someone if you know what you are buying if not stay away from used.

Just by the way there is no such thing as an inexpensive large electric heli...the batteries are the killer ! So whatever you decide check out the cost of batteries and factor that into the wife factor . Packs for the 600 start at $130 each from HK and go up to $380each. I have a 600...FANTASTIC heli in all respects would highly recommend it. Good luck.

Re: Biggest electric Heli

You will find a lot of information here in the RCG forum dedicated to the bigger electric helis (those that use 520mm blades or larger):

Re: Biggest electric Heli

you want biggest or just bigger??

If you want electric, something that can take you from beginner to mass 3D then Logo 500, still run 6S packs, 1lb lighter then a 600 t-rex and blows anything out of the water in that class performance wise period. If you are crashing alot maybe not such good heli as it is higher cost, but if you are competent at least in your self to know your limits that heli will go far and beyond. The quality is top notch.

The kit price is the least of your worries! Just wait until you price out the batteries (need 3 or 4 packs), chargers and charger power supplies you will need. The heli kit price will seem almost insignificant in comparison!!

If you're price sensitive, maybe a 500 size is better for your budget?

Re: Biggest electric Heli

As I was looking for some Century swift parts ,I came across an electric conversion on one of the sites for a TRex 700 it was about $499. .I can't remember which site but would think if you googled electric coversion Trex it would pop up
