Starting out with a CP heli is not impossible, but more difficult and requires a lot of patience. Everything is harder - proper setup, flying, repair, radio, etc. If you do decide to start with a CP, then a micro CP would be the LAST choice because they are much quicker in the air and more difficult to work on because of their size. If you start CP, get something bigger with a belt driven tail. Belt tails are somewhat more forgiving and easier to work on than shaft driven and motor driven tails on CP helis are not as precise.

I have been flying helis for years, and I am really enjoying the CB100. I'm not sure its the best heli to start out with, but it flies very stable and nice.

You might also want to look into some coaxial helis to start with as well....
