There are so many different ways to go here with this, I'm not quite sure if your up to speed on what a setup would cost you to start with. First thing you need to do is find out who sells nitro's and which brand you'd like to start with. The sizing is where they get expensive, burning fuel in a .90 size bird eats fuel like nothing you've experienced so start with a .30 or .50 size helicopter. The .50 is most common now, the brands depend on where you deal, thehelifarm.com is an excellent choice, they stock the Synergy N5c , Century Radikal 640, and can also get a Hawk Pro kit in .30 size if you'd like to be fuel efficient while learning. They have also brought on Thunder Tiger as a brand of helicopter as well, which there is an X50 nitro that's awesome as well. Feel free to pm me if you'd like any questions answered.
I thought I answered him quite well actually. If your spending over a grand on a nitro the sim is pretty much obvious.
