The best advice is buy a good simulator!
Fly the simulator until you can hover in all orientations, fly forward and do bank turns in both directions. This will take some time! Relax and have fun with it.

While you are learning on the simulator pick up a DX6i.
Then an MCPX
Please read every document at the links bellow.
If you work at the simulator until you can fly every helicopter in it without thinking about it. MCPX will come naturally and you will be flying a CP helicopter that you can learn to hover and fly around your living room. Then take outside turn up the power when the weather gets nice. And you will have a helicopter that will blow your mind!
Links that will help MCPX Newbies

MCPX links for newbies ( Update )

When you can take MCPX outdoors and fly it all day with no crashes!
Start thinking about a 450 not before.
Hope this helps you.

I suggest taking the above advice on the simulator first and not buy anything before you know what you are looking for. You would not be the first guy to waste you hard earned cash on a crappy helicopter that is way too advanced for you.

Both of these E-Sky helis you mentioned are NOT a good deal, those prices are not special in any way. A good deal is when you get a Honey Bee CPX for $80 shipped. Also, the CP3 and the CPX is the exact same helicopter with a different skin and they should cost about the same.

These are both motorized tail helis with brushed main and tail motors, which is why they are so cheap. You really do get what yo pay for.

The only E-Sky helis that are any good are the Belt CPX and Honey Bee King 3/4, they have belted tails, brushless motors and semi-decent head design. The Belt CPX should cost $170* at the most, and around $150-160* on a good sale. King 4 should normally cost $160* and $140* on a good sale. I have found and bought a King 4 for $100* sometime last year. You really should replace the radio system that these helicopters come with.

Eventually get either a good clone (Tarot at a minimum) or a genuine ALIGN just for the sheer cheap parts cost, excellent compatibility and massive availability of spares. I can't really recommend anything else as I have not flown anything else, so it's hard for me to make a good suggestion. As an alternative to ALIGN, you could get any other reputable brand of popular helicopters (Blade, Gaui, MSH, Miniature Aircraft), but that depends on the thickness of your wallet and your personal preferences. I'm sure others here can make better recommendations on those brands.

*Prices may be outdated, since the last time I checked was >9 months ago.

Another reason not to buy early is that stuff gets outdated fast in the heli world and updates evolve very rapidly. The longer you keep a helicopter, the harder it gets to find parts for it.

Phoenix and Realflight are the best IMO.

There's a free one called Helisimrc which is OK for a freebie.
