I recomend an eflight appretice as its electric so you don't have to worry about engine tuning its easy to fly if set up properly long flight times (11-15) mins and takes a beating and keeps on ticking. It also handles wind well , the foam is easy to repair. My boss broke his in 6 parts and glued it back together again. If not choose something where your local shop has parts in stock or can get them quick.

Good luck

Totally agree. I'm a heli fanatic that has been out of the hobby for 18 years and just returned to it... now obviously with a heli, pretty hard to turn away and talk to somebody, but I'm willing to bet somebody, somewhere has done it. I remember when one club member turned away to chat to his buddy while flying an electric assist glider... he looked back up and it was gone. He never did find it.

Routine maintenance is a huge factor. One loose screw or ball link on a heli can spell total disaster... but that doesn't mean you shouldn't check over your plane. Full scale pilots check controls for smooth action and give the plane a walk around, why shouldn't a model pilot do the same?
