E-Flite Blade MCX......it's a coax heli, if you want a single rotor then the 4#3b or the 4g3 but they are much harder to fly then the MCX

eflite mcx would probably suit you .. its a coax but getting into a single rotor like a 4#3b will be much harder to fly right away ...

well, fun is relative. If you like a challenge and dont mind a long, hard learning curve then get the 4#3b, once you learn how to fly it you'll have fun, a lot of people think the learning part is fun (I didnt) I found it very frustrating and I was learning on a larger 300 size, the 4#3b is harder because it's smaller.
If you dont want to work at learning then the MCX coax is for you...

A 4#3a or b will keep you busy. They are a blast. Learning them is a process, so if patience is at a premium, I'd get a coax. How are you at re-educating your co-ordination? Both sticks of the AH are on one stick on 4 channel. The other is for cyclic.

From xheli.com this looks good for bang for the buck http://www.xheli.com/new20es4raco.html
A little larger heli that you can take outdoors as long as it's not to windy. They also sell parts and upgrades for it.

i would get either the mCX or walkera 5G6-1. they are both really etable right out of box. go look at the multirotor forums they are having all kinds of fun with brushless and all in the 5G61. i'd get the 5G6-1 i feel is a little more hobby-like and a little less toyish.

if you plan to eventally get the 4#3b (assume you will "heli crack"), then the 5g6-1 might be a better choice as it is essentially a coax version of the 4#3b (same layout, identical servos, , interchangele parts, similar 4-in-1, exact same transmitter, and same batteries and charger, all of which you will come in handy on your 4#3b).

The mechanics for the heli are the Esky Lama I believe. You can find info by doing a search in multi-rotor section.
