I probably could have started with the MSRX and been fine but I wanted something really tame for indoor. Until now the choices were MSRX and MCPX and I ways recommended the MSRX for anyone with flight experience getting into helis over the MCPX. Now that this smaller CP is coming we will have to see how it does to see if that opinion changes. Might not be a bad starter but again, CP is a lot more difficult to fly when starting out even coming from huge fixed wing experience.
Thanks. But you know, i have all winter to practice since i can practice indoors slowly with this heli, and airplane flying practically is done for me in the winter because of the cold...think i will take my chances when it comes out.
