I got bored with Monster Truck RCs that I am losing interest. (It was last year) One day, while doing the laundry in our apartment building area, somone left a RC heli mag on the seating area. I picked it up and started reading. I said...would it be cool to know how to fly heli. What do you know, I found myself checking the internet and watching endless youtube vids. After a ton of research, I ended up buying a fixed pitch heli . . The Hirobo SRB Quark. That thing is a pricey micro, but man...it was worth every penny. It was as stable as a coaxial with the maneuverability of a fixed pitch. Yes I crash and I crash and I crash . . . But those crashes becomes less and less and less until I found myself checking the internet again, what is the next best step after micro. They say a 450 sized heli. I was able to make a deal for my RTR Savage Flux to a RTF T-Rex 450 SE (version - 1). man, after spooling that up, another different RUSH! If there is one thing my Hirobo SRB Quark taught me, is actual flying control. I never used a training gear on my first hover with a 450. Yup, that is what you get with good practice (fixed pitch heli in my case). I need to re-learn how to control collective and cyclic controls, but after a few steady hovers (albeit-lots of crashes also), you are ready to transition to different aspects of heli flying.

The bigger the size you are flying, the more money you will spend with parts. So, take into account your budget also when choosing your next size.

Everyone started as a newbie. I am not an expert also. But once you did your first hover. First side-in hovers. First nose-in hovers (that is hard for me). First fowrad flight. First Loops and Rolls. You will always find something exciting and always get that new rush plus added pucker factor. It never gets me bored.

I may not be like other expert 3D pilots also (I may never will be). But I sure try to beat my own feat everytime I go out and fly. You will find youself saying...I though I can never do that. If only someone is there with me when I fly, cathing this on film and post it in youtube .

Keep on flying.

BINGO U HIT THE JACKPOT, when u said learning the controls that is the most important thing to learn, is what the sticks do and how they respond, but to be honest my .50 raptor was the most stable heli i owned then moved to a 600 nitro t rex, the trex wasnt as stable as the raptor, but it was way faster, then i moved to a 450, and man this thing is fast, my theory after learning to fly, is learn the sticks and learn to hover and learn to bring it back to home base and u will succeed
losi 2.0 t , when they screws dont fall out haha

Re: Eflite blade msr

Going to a 450 from an Msr is a giant leap. May I suggest the Blade 120sr first. It can be flown outside on calm days and won't bust your wallet at $130 for a BNF.

Re: Eflite blade msr

The mCP X isn't as bad as people make it sound for stability. I find it holds a steady hover with less input than my blade 400. The 400 will definitely take more wind, and is less sensitive to being over controlled (more mass/momentum). The BIG benefit of the mCP X is that if you fly over grass and cut the power most crashes won't result in any damage at all.

The only time I broke any parts on mine was when it got caught by a big gust of wind. I lost control, so I cut the power about 50 feet up but it ended up drifting out over onto pavement. Total damage was a broken landing gear skid (only one leg broke), and the tail fin snapped off.

If you do go for one, get the V2.
