hello like to buy a heli to practice on so i can improve my skill levels i can hover a little and then i start to lose it
any way there is a walker 60 with brushless motor and lipo built just like the trex for 260.00 new built good and strong
and there is the blade pro with lipo for 345.00new but not much of a frame on those and very fragile skids
which one am i better off getting to practice on

The Walkera brushless motor and lipo isn't worth anything. The Walkera electronics are not reliable. You can get a Trex S with ESC and motor for the same price ($269) in Canada.

Blade CP Pro involves a tail motor - no fun there (trickier to get the tail setup and the brushed tail motors are not reliable).

You'd be better off with a larger heli for hover training - you'll learn faster. If you must go with something smaller, then a Trex or MX400 would be better choices IMHO.

If your still in the hovering stages and you want to learn nose in hover and forward/reverse/sideways flight, then I would take a look at the CX2. Easy to fly, tough, reliable and cheap. 210$ and no frequency issues to deal with.

Keep the heli you have, and buy yourself a good simulator. Nothing like stick time, especially this time of year.
