I had a gap of more than 10 years as well and basically, I lost every skill except hovering. Whereas previously, I got to the level of basic aerobatics.

Things have changed a lot in 10 years. The helis now are much more powerful than those you used to fly. The standard outdoor heli is the 450 which is much twitchier and scarier than the 0.30 you used to fly. It is best to avoid a 250 or 450 for the moment. I know quite a few old timers like me who have had a lot of trouble in adjusting to a 450.

I would suggest that you re-enter this hobby with a cheap indoor FP heli first. The WL Toys V911 is the heli of the moment by popular acclaim. After that, I would look at 100 - 120 sized CPs such as the Blade MCPx or the Walkera Mini CP.
