yes you can but I wouldnt recommend it because you have to know the controls perfectly inorder to fly it. The 2 and 3 channel helis youve flown are nothing like a 6 channel heli. If you dont want to start with a 6 channel cp heli then you should start with a fixed pitch heli just to get a feel for the controls and how fast the heli responds.

I went to a 6 Ch from a 4 Ch trainer and got very frustrated. I let it go for a while. When I got my first real FP it was different and made the learning curve a little easier. I found it much easier to set up and or repair a FP then a CP. I think it makes the transition to a CP that much easier and yes it is very much like a FP except more HP. That's my take on it.

If you want a single rotor heli get a fp heli. I would recommend you start with a coaxial heli like the cx2 or cx3. You can learn on a fp heli but it will be extremely difficult because you havent flown a 4 channel heli before. If you want a cheap and tough fp heli you could get a 4#3b. But the 4#3b is very difuclt tt fly for a fp heli. Plus to make it fly better you will have to upgrade it to full brushless and add mods such as the beller hiller head. I dont recommend it for your first 4 channel heli but if you dont want to get board then it will keep you interested for a long time.

Evidently the mods agreed as well, seeing as he's "temporarily banned"
