Not a blade flier, but if you no longer worry about orientation, then you're no longer a novice. Regardless of how 'twitchy' they say a 450 is, it still doesn't compare to a micro. Cyclic movements that would send a micro heli zooming out of sight, is just enough to make a 450 sized heli hover, and you'll actually have to slow down to let a 450 keep up. You need more throttle to get it to accelerate, sharper angles to get it moving, and more room to get it to stop. It's just heavier.

You'll pretty much be doing fast circuits by the time you get to your third battery. The only thing that'll hold you back is the intimidation factor.
