I just finished an XCell CT ... it's a VERY nice heli and has several
upgrades from the ST. Add up the $ to get from the ST to the CT later ...
maybe worth a thought.
My CT was my second helicopter, the Raptor being my first. All I can say is
that I am really glad that I built a Raptor first, the CT would have been a
bit much for my first bird. If you have some experienced help in your area,
go for the XCell! Otherwise you may want to start with something simpler
You can see some photos of my CT under construction in the photo gallery at:
PS. Make sure you get a fuel filter with a large filter surface area,
cheaper filters can really cause some interesting problems.
