It will be my first bigger heli. My only other exp is a blade mSR, the SR and a TON of sim time.
I would get one of the smaller heli's first - mcpx, nano, 130x. Even 300x an option, all pretty stable collective pitch models to learn on. I can hover in all directions and fly nose in with these, but still get nervous with the 450 3d - so much energy in the air
