Talking Which Blade to get?

About to purchase a new Blade hell but am unsure as to which one would be best. I am a semi experienced pilot who can fly fixed pitch well and have held steady hovers on a friends little honey bee. At the moment im leaning towards getting the 450 as i will be flying out doors most of the time and the 450 size gives a better stability. Let me know what you all think thanks!

ps. my local store only stocks blade so want to be able to support them and have quick access to spares :p

I'm not sure but I think the Blade 400 & 450 heli's might be the same size. I fly a thunder tiger Mini Titan E325. Thunder Tiger uses 325 as a size description which is the blade size 325mm. I use Eflite wood blades on my Mini Titan & the blades description on the packet is their for the Blade 400 & 450 and they are 325mm as well. The numbers Eflite, Align and many others use reference's more to motor size and not the size of the heli. I would check the specs on the Blade 400 & 450 and see what all is different between the two. Both should be a very good heli with the 450 being the newer of the two it may have some improvements over the older Blade 400. I am still in the hovering stages with mine and I have had it out in winds around 8 to 10mph and it moves it around I rather fly in 5mph or less. For me 10mph winds is pushing the limit. Good luck with finding the right heli.
