Coming out of lurk mode, I have to agree with this statement. It is just over a year since I started at absolute "ground zero" with helis using a MCX. Now I am learning to fly a TRex 450 Pro. Along the way, I have flown a variety of smaller birds.

I would say that along with buying a quality bird and radio, just as important is the LHS you buy it from. The LHS is the one that is going be there to support the product with parts, upgrades and advice. That support is really critical. I know of one brand of smaller bird that is an excellent little bird but unfortunately if you want parts, you have send off to China and wait almost a month. I know of another rather expensive "computer controlled", technically advanced bird that several LHS in my area just laughed at because there was little or no distributor support for dealers. Of course there are other birds that every LHS supports.

A widely supported bird is truly the way to go. My 450 is supported by at least seven knowledgeable and well stocked LHS within a 10 km radius of where I live. That is great since I suspect as hobbyists, most of us are impulse driven when it comes to parts and questions. We always want it NOW!

If you don't have access to a good LHS, you should hook up with a local club if there is one. A club will help you immensely in your purchasing choices.
