I have the Blade MCPx and Blade Nano. I don't think the MCPx is as capable of 3D as the MiniCP is, the tail doesn't hold as well. But for learning and sport flying, it's hard to beat. It's very durable and gives much longer flight times than Walkera micros. It does require a good programmable transmitter, like a DX6i. Which adds to the cost. The Blade Nano is an improvement on the MCPx, but it's harder to fly than the MCPx.

You can also buy a Walkera Genius. The price is right and the motors last longer than the motors on any other Walkera micro.

WL Toys makes a very affordable V922 model, which is probably easier to obtain in your location than any of these others. But it does need a better transmitter. You can read more about it here: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1795419

Both Hajile and I are recommending CP helis, because after mastering the V911, there isn't much to be gained from buying another FP heli, outside of a quad. But, lots of people don't like them.
