I would say that over the long haul, the quad will be DRAMATICALLY cheaper.
One little dink will take the Heli out of service, where the quad would shrug it off.
That, combined with the inherent dangers of a spinning rotor helicopter (VERY DANGEROUS) would make it a no brainer for me.
If I was going to fly it inside, around others, and compete with tasks, I'd not want to add to the stress of worrying about cutting someone's knee off.
Thats a bit of exaggeration dont ya think?
I have the Blade CX and have found her to be quite rugged you would have to crash her really hard to damage her
And i have a very large collection of helis and imho am a fine pilot so think im qualified to questions these points you have made
These coaxs are not like a CP heli, i wouldnt want to fly one into me but they would not cut some ones knee off
like say a 600 size TREX
There forward speed is not that great as well giving you plenty of time to react whether on the controls or as a bystander They are in fact setup to hover more anything
And i hate to say it but Quads have 4 spinning blades and could injure you just as easily as an RC helicopter could if not operated with care
Just my 2 cents
Take care dear friend
