Yes, good choice there, you will enjoy it, it is hard to get bored with that heli, it is the helicopter of the decade in my opinion, I only sold mine because of financial difficulties at the time.
I little tip. If you can squeeze a 1000mah 25c battery into the canopy with a bit of help from velcro, this makes the helicopter considerably better in wind, and gives you 11-12 minutes flight time.
Also, the helicopter has two modes, beginner and expert. On expert mode, it is much better in the wind, on beginner mode, it is not. Read your manual, it will tell you how to change between modes. There is also the advanced swashplate settings for when you improve your skills, which again, is even better in the wind. Haha.
The difference between this helicopter and the Big Lama, is night and day - it is almost break proof, but make sure you do the fishing rod modification, or you WILL lose those linkages! It takes a few minutes, and save a lot of money on spare links!!
