Salamanderhead you better stay away from that 250 ... that's way to much heli for someone learning collective pitch helis. The trex 250 is very fast and agile! Sorry but your lack of info on the type of helis you have experience with put me way out in left field! Take Puppies advice and get yourself a simulator ... RealFlight7 would be my choice of sim but I'm sure Dash will advise you differently!

Over and out!
I agree with Mikekimc, RF7 is good, that's what i use now too!

Depends on what you want to call more complicated. I have a gasoline heli and am almost completed building a second. On my particular machine, the instructions are pretty clear and straight forward making the assembly pretty easy. Of course though, with a bigger gasser machine comes a higher price tag as well.
Two wrongs don't make a right, but two Wrights will make an airplane.

My Heli: Futaba 18MZ 2x(JR GSR260Z Sports FBL, Zenoah G26H, Futaba CGY750 Gyro, Futaba BLS-351 cyclic, BLS-251 tail, Futaba BLS-451 Throttle. Gryphon voltage regulator).

Re: Rc helicopter kit

Hi, I don't think you can do it and be happy with what you end up with. This hobby has about a $1200 to $1500 startup cost, unless you buy toys and fly them.
