Not really - my idea of a 'beater heli' is: good electronics/robust servos + rest that can be easily fixed/replaced. Beast X doesn't get damaged in crashes, nor motor/ESC combo. With good luck - good mg servos either. And all of the together would be 5x or more than the kit itself. Actually - even with the 'expensive' kits - you usually end up with 1:3 or 1:4 (kit vs everything else). My first 'proper' kit was Mini Titan - ~£120-130 vs £305 (£45 servos, £30 ESC, £35 motor, £150 tail gyro+servo, £45 receiver) for everything else.
So, investing, over time of course, into good electronics makes sense, doesn't it? And it is going to transform your view to the helicopters. Don't listen to Paddy - he didn't try it yet, as I said!
And, oh, I would rather put FBL (Beast X in my case) on cheap, easy to repair/'I'm not afraid to fly with' heli than to 'inherently much more stable bigger heli' - as you'll 'feel' the difference straight away. And will be influenced with the wind far less than on big one...

As I said - I don't mind letting you have a go with my MT and Protos(es).
This like expo and D/Rs are Tx settings for Beast X you can easily adjust to suite you. You'll see, I hope
July is just around the corner and you're the only one who we're waiting on for our FF so far
