I enjoyed the outa mine, I got a friend with about $5k worth of heli's, 7 different kinds. I spent prolly $500 learning. took about a month to get it down. def the hardest thing I have ever learned, but lots of fun once u get it down.

i'd say start off with the rotofly, its pretty tough and doesn't cost much when u crash it. the big ones r easier to fly but expensive to fix.

Also be prepared for a lot of this.

The hobby store I was in lastnight had a simulator set up. I messed around with it for about 15 minutes and managed to get the heli trimmed up, and almost hover..( it kept sideslipping, and I couldn't get it to stop ) I have a good foundation of how helicopters work, but I really didn't think it would be as easy as it seemed in the sim.

i got one of the $30 at radio shack... my little dog chases it and barks at it, the big dog will jump up and grab it out of the air... it's a blast to play with. only has yaw control and up/down.... can hover with a little practice.

yea it is fun to use, you can't use them outside though, the slightest breeze messes them up.
