Not for a new pilot. Some people (like me) got it for a first heli. It is very frusterating and takes a lot of repairs. The NR3D is not sturdy stock and requires some mods to make it reliable.

After crashing mine a few times I got a CX and a sim. Then after a month or so got the 3D back in the air and had some success with it.

Venom has Great support and I would not be afraid of this heli. But get a Sim first and better yet, someone to help you.

Good Luck!
Andy
