best 450 fixed pitch for a noob like me?
i wanna get a fixed pitch heli that i can fly in my 30m x 30m back yard. i have a crappy coaxial which is more boring than a maths test and i have a v911 which i love but it cant handle wind.
i want something cheap to, is their a way to make that $30 450 size heli kit on hobbyking easy to fly for a noob, i mean not do crazy 3d stuff.
ive got plenty of plane experience and i want to be able to reuse my electronics, not get a heli with a single circuit board for everything...

i love my planes because if i crash them, a bit of hot glue and a new prop gets them going again...its not quite the same as helis.
its more money than a plane too, maybe il come back to this thread when i get bored of planes XD

Buy a micro quad. They cost about $50 and are extremely durable. They handle wind much better than FP helis and fly circles around them. If you like the micros, you can move up to a 350 size quad for about $200. If you don't like quads, a Walkera Master CP is a good choice for your experience level.
The rotating blades of a heli form a solid disk that wind will not penetrate. So, that disk acts like a kite when wind gets under it. The ability to handle wind requires enough movement authority to be able to turn and pitch into the wind, enough power to drive against it, enough head loading to provide inertia and headspeed and very fast response. FP helis have none of these characteristics. Quads have all of them. CP helis have all of them, plus the ability to use negative pitch to drive down against the wind that's pushing up.
