Need help choosing first coaxial helicopter

Hello. I have had a new fascination with the RC flying hobby and I am looking for advice on my first coaxial. I am looking for advice here because I do not know what good brands or models to look for and I don't want to spend more than $200. I believe I am proficient with the Blade MCX2 and I'm looking for something larger and can handle well outdoors. BNF would be optimal since I already have a Spektrum DX6i.

Thanks! -Jack

the best outdoor flyer is the hp heli x-2 it is way more capable of handling the outdoor environment than any other RTF coaxial..


or stay with blade and get a cx2 its a good helicopter but it will need a lot of mods to fly outdoors very well, it should fly outdoors as well as your mcx2 does..

I understand it's not what you asked but if you already have good 4-ch thumbs you'd do better moving on to either FP (120SR or 200SRX) or quad. All will work better in wind than a coax and all are BNF, the quad and 200 are triaxis gyro. Quad gets you out of the tailmotor class within your pricepoint.
