welcome to the Heli world Max !

Looks like you have all the right stuff to start.
Suggest you look at also for setup tips

Also even with the training gear, you are best to have a heli instructor with you for the first few times....yes, you can still brake blades.
Also good to try flying heli on Realflight simulator first.

You need to engine to warm up more than idle, so probably just hovering
around half stick and + 5 pitch is best running rich with some smoke.
