I will second what Xrayted said. I'm a big fan of Thunder Tiger, too. I like their design and quality a lot better than Align or it's many clones. I would make one additional suggestion though. Start with a Blade MCPx or Walkera Genius. They are far more durable than any 450 size heli and can sustain lots of crashes with little or no damage. Another good option is the Blade MQx or V929 quad. They will teach you a lot about flying a CP heli, because they have response that's faster and more movement authority. They are incredibly durable and simple. I've been crashing an MQx for 6 months with no damage other than one motor replaced. They are very cheap training

One other comment, if you start with a flybarless micro (MCPx, Genius, etc) they do require more effort to take off; that's true of most micros.
