It's a decent enough flying heli for a large, heavy coax. But it's not very durable and a lot of hassle to repair. You might want to set it aside and try a cheap 4 channel micro coax until you get a little practice.

, it is a nice looking and flying scale bodied helicopter, but it is probably one of the worst choices for a rank beginner to actually learn how to fly full function RC helicopters, All that cool pretty plastic body work a makes it very fragile and difficult and expensive to service. I would also suggest that you put aside your pretty new Xmas gift and do yourself a favor and pick up a more suitable and more resilient learner helicopter to actually learn how to fly first. One good crash with that large EC-135 you will have a pile of wreckage. More mass means more impact energy and damage when crashed, and if you are newb, you WILL crash. I would recommend a small lightweight indoor sub micro coaxial for learning your basic orientation and control inputs, such as these:

The Nine Eagles sub micro coaxials are high quality reasonably priced coaxials with excellent user base knowledge and worldwide parts support which are important considerations for learners.

If you are in the USA, you can get a nice NE type sub micro from Tower Hobbies now for a very reasonable price:

Right On Bro! I see we are neighbors, I'm just a few hours away over here in So Cal....... It sounds like you have one cool mother In-Law

BTW, here is one more option for you, if you don't want to wait, you can just cruise over to one of the 2 Hobby Peoples in Las Vegas, they have the eVO Flight Mini Stinger which is just a rebranded Nine Eagles Solo Coax and has full parts interchangeability:

.

I thought the whole point of having a coaxial heli is that it was EASY to fly? I mean it hovers on its own. When you say "learning your basic orientation",what exactly do you mean? Because on those learner 3CH all you can do is go up/down and left/right correct? Isnt that easy with a coaxial?

Just trying to understand how one should learn on a smaller coaxial, just to upgrade to a bigger coaxial.

If this first helicopter was a single rotor one, then I could understand putting this to the side and getting a smaller one
