You can get a cheap heli and other cheap ele and have a ball but dont go cheap on the tail. Get a good gyro and tail servo. Setup is the key also. One of my fav hk helis was the 450gt.
I'll look into those, thanks so much! With all the research ive been doing lately, I definitely want to get as much as I can afford with the tail components. I did try a helicopter once before, it was from hobby people and it was called the sabre. Apparently the components that came with it made it unflyable! Of course I hadn't figured that out until I rebuilt it 3 times after crashing. But it was a fixed pitch... I enjoy building and upgrading stuff as I learn, which is what I've done with my planes and scratchbuilt foamies... This hobby is friggin killing my pocketbook!! My wife thinks I'm insane!! :-)
