Which helicopter to learn CCPM/3D flying?

Which would you recommend? Could someone also explain to me how the controls work for CCPM?

evey CP has CCPM whether it is mechanical or electronic. EBHG is good source to learn from. read that first.

If you want to learn 3D, I'd say get a sceadu 50 or a raptor 50, but as long as this is in the electrics forum, a century swift is a really nice machine.

Controls for CCPM are same as mechanical mix, but the difference lies in how the movements from the sticks are transfered to the swashplate. Check the EHBG.

The two best helis for learning 3D are called "Reflex XTR" and "RealFlight G3".

The Raptor is probably the easiest to fly 3D helicopter around.

I'd also like to throw another simulator out there, Aerofly Pro Deluxe. Not trying to get in a battle over which one is best, but Aerofly is my favorite, though I've never tried Reflex. There are plenty of threads discussing this topic.
