What's a good R/C helicopter kit for a newbie ???

Hi all,

I am interested in joining the R/C helicopter hobby, but I am a total
beginner and dont know where to start. Would it be better to take a
tutorial at the local hobby club to learn how to fly & maintain a heli, or
should I just buy one and learn on my own? Are there any good videos or
software that make learning easier? Can anyone recommend a cheap beginner
heli (under $1000)?

Also, I have future aspirations to own & pilot a real helicopter....do R/C
helis teach you the fundamentals to fly a real whirly bird?

Thanks for all your help,
TJM
