Thanks Slyster. I agree with that we need a "first helicopter" post. It seems like every time the question is asked, it gets messy...some guys just answer with what they have, some attack what others have, some take it off topic entirely...
I think it's hard for a beginner to find what really matters in a thread like that one.
I think we need a fresh post for this. Something that clearly lists the different types of helis, where they can fly, what you can learn with them. I have a few ideas. I'll take a crack at this and maybe we can update it together?
