None of the helis you are asking about are good choices for a beginner.People say this all the time(but only because it's true),but you should consider either an MCP-X from Eflite,or a 450 that is Trex compatible so parts are easy to get.If you will spend some time looking around this site,you will see how often this topic comes up,and you can follow several new pilots as they wrestle with the learning curve.
The difficulty of fixing a CP heli isn't the obstacle-the biggest obstacle to learning is setting the heli up well enough that you can concentrate on learning to fly.The MCP-X is unrivaled in this aspect-if you can change out broken parts,and do a quick pre-flight check of two or three items,it will be set up correctly and consistently.
In all honesty,the best buy would be the Phoenix simulator.You will learn more with that in one day than you will in months with the helis you are looking at right now.

destin! one must AssUMe that this is his progression inta a 6ch heli!

although he doesn't say what he fly's, he does say he fly's!

I agree that getting atleast a trex clone would be a better choice, but if you look at his selection, it leads me ta believe he has a buget of a lil more then a hundred bucks! and thats where he's looking!

unfortunatly I can't recomend either the he22 or the exceed eagle 50 which are basicaly the same heli that I started with"venom nitghranger 3d"

as for the exceed G2 all I know is its brushless and it has a tail belt, and I havn't heard too much bad about it!

any way good luck helico

P.s. if you must stik with a hundred dollar heli! then I would prob try the eagle 50 http://www.xheli.com/50h03-eagle50-24ghz-lcd.html I've heard the programing is a lil better in the radio!

Id love to get one of those helis, but price is the big issue for me here, the highest I could probably go is $130. Also flight time would be a big plus for me

The Phoenix sim is 130 or so at most hobby shops.And there are some much cheaper,even free.And that reccomendation is 100% good advice.Take it or leave it.
I didn't assume anything.The OP asked about the helis and I simply said that they all completely suck for a new CP flyer.
The flight time on the sim would be much more valuable than the several minutes you get during the weeks you are waiting for parts or trying to troubleshoot problems online here.

http://www.xheli.com/50h03-eagle50-24ghz-lcd.html in stock and 99.00

http://www.xheli.com/gensace3s20c.html get a couple of these, and your still under your 130.00 budget!

If its what you got thats great, its your hobby, just keep in mind that although not the best way ta go, it is a way ta go! poeple said your not spose ta start with a 250, I did and now I'm freakin outa control, want a secound opinion ask my wife! roflmao

take your time, go ta the right thread for said heli, get all the help ya can from peeps that have more experience with that heli then I! and you should be ok!

if its what I had ta start with thats what I'd get I think! so good luck and let us know how it goes! and def get the extra batt's
