Not quite as similar. Single rotor helicopters are not symmetrical and inherently unstable. They need to lean to one side to be able to hover and the left/right banks don't mirror each other, you also need to compensate differently when using either side of the rudder.

Quads are symmetrical since the propellers cancel each other out so i'd wager they're more consistent when turning.

The difference isn't significant enough to make you crash (Atleast, not as bad as moving from 3ch to 4ch), it's just a difference in flying chracteristics once you start flying different helis.
