No, its not. For under US $200 you can get a name-brand 450 size heli with a simple transmitter like the E-Sky Belt CP-X.
If you want to try your hand at a CP heli, go for an ultra-micro. Even if you crash it, it is more crash resistant and will suffer little, if any, damage compared to a larger heli. It is less dangerous, cheaper to buy, with cheap replacement parts.
Have a look at the Skyartec Wasp Nano CP. US $110, and it has a beginner mode set on the heli, unlike the others. Post a 3 min flying video on YouTube, and you can get free batteries and spares from the manufacturer using an ongoing promotion.
