All DH helis have a very high degree of self-stabilization and very limited movement authority. They are not good preparation for flying any CP heli. They are toys that allow you to have some fun, not learning tools. Buy a micro quad before attempting the transition. It will make things much less frustrating and costly.

Art Tech helis have never sold very well. They have a reputation for being heavy, complex and not very durable. They do seem to be improving regularly, but buying any heli that doesn't have much of a track record is always risky. In any case, its not something I'd recommend for your experience level.
