    I am interested in the Blade 450 or, 500 Model 3D BNF Basic helicopters.

    I am interested in the Blade 450 or, 500 Model 3D BNF Basic helicopters.
    The components in the 2 models seem to be similar with more motor lifting thrust and battery power in the 500.
    I know acrobatics (increased thrust and control) are the forte of the advanced 3D models but, what are the other major differences in hardware between these 2 models?
    I have a DX7 programmable radio from a ducted fan vectored jet model.
    My background is with the Blade C2 beginner model I have used for several years.
    I have flown a intermediate collective pitch model several time and was much more impressed with its power and flight characteristics.

    For me, it comes down to size. I like them larger because they are easier to see and to tell what is going on. The 500 is easier to see and is slightly more stable.

    Hello,

    You are correct on these 2 helicopters power comparison. The major differences between these 2 helicopters are the size, and along with that, all of the electronics will be different as well. Here are a few of the main differences between these helicopter.
    The Blade 450:
    Blades are 325mm (450)
    Blades are 430mm (500)
    battery 3 cell 2200 (450)
    battery 6 cell 2900 (500)
    Servos Micro (450)
    Servos Standard (500)
    Motor 420H brushless outrunner (450)
