Would this be good for a beginner? I'm kind of new to multis but have flown a fixed pitch heli.

I'll have to let someone else answer that. I have not flown either. I assembled it and bench tested it but have never 'flown' it. I think they are probably more complicated to tune and get flying well than a fixed pitch heli. If you want a challenge then it might be perfect.

If you have flown a fixed pitch heli and mastered flying that, I think the tricopter would fly similarly. At least that has been my experience in moving from a Blade MSR to my own home built RCExplorer design tricopter. You'll probably crash it, but the beauty of that design is that it is relatively easy and inexpensive to fix. I would recommend getting a lot of extra props and wood for the arms.

I didn't have any problem setting up the KK board, but was sure to carefully follow instructions...depending on the version of board there are good guides out there from RCExplorer's website to DHDSRacer's youtube videos

Man that's a great tricopter. Is 190$ your final offer? Or are you flexible on the price?

At this point I am not open to offers. If you do the math and factor in shipping I think you will find it is actually a reasonable price. Remember when you order things from retailers such as HobbyKing the shipping is pricey and you always need to make multiple orders or order extra of everything because the defect rate is so high. For example two of the three motors I ordered had bad bearings so I had to order more. The rear motor came with messed up threads so I had to order prop savers for it.

If I can't sell it for that price I will probably keep it and have some fun crashing it this summer.
