May want to start with something a bit more glider'ish. Sure you've been flying 3d, but it's nothing compared to FPV. I flew pattern for a few years before making the switch. I've flown a few 55mm and 64mm jets. Both are pretty tame vs some stuff you can get into with FPV.

Start with the Star series (Easy Star, Twin Star) or grab a Skywalker (Full or Mini). The Skywalker is roughly the same price as the Mig. Once you're used to the perspective and flying FPV, switch back to the Jets. I'd hate to see you bust up a perfectly good jet and get discouraged.
