    Have you looked at the HK500 kits from HobbyKing? Very reasonably priced for a 500, and the parts are Blade/Eflite compatible for the most part (some kits more than others).

    Trex will be easier to get parts for (and cheaper) and tons of places sell upgrades and ways to make it better or easier to fix.

    I would also say go for a Hobbyking 500CMT as they are a good kit plus you can swap some of the parts with a T-Rex and E-flight plus they get some good reviews plus this on is in stock.
    If that don't float your boat have a look at some of there other Helicopters as they do quite a few good ones now plus i've never had a problem with them.
    Let us know what you decide and maybe a few photos or even a flight video would be sweet,good luck in your choice no matter what one you go for in the end.

    There are very cool RC helicopter has been given by you, I like that. There are not very major problem with your heli so don't worry, you will go to it's repairing center, because they have more information about that kind of heli's.
