absolutely, more important than anything else is the sim time. Enjoy the Nano, I know I do.

Re: First CP - NCPX or 300x

Each of those helis have their pros and cons which have been mentioned by some of the other guys. The Nano is a good starter, parts are cheap but the motors don't usually last that long. A plug n play brushless motor kit is available as a replacement which gives it a bit more power, my buddy has one.
The 300 is a nice size and flies great. Some of the stock components don't have the greatest quality. This heli likes to be upgraded so be prepared to spend a few bucks on it. Mine was flying great till I plowed it into a tree. First flight after fixing it I fly it into a tree again, poor depth perception. If I had to do it again I would get the Nano or a good used MCPX and then move to a 450 and skip the 300 size.
