Would the jr venture 50 with an O.S. 50 be a good helicopter to start out with? I have been flying planes for 2 years now and I can fly a helicopter really good on aerofly pro sim.

If not what would be a good one?

the venture 50 is a very smooth and stable heli. it comes with aggressive and beginner paddles. you just choose which flying style you like. it's a good first heli.

Sceadu EVO 50 and Raptor 50 V2 are both very good (probably better) choices...

Nothing wrong with the Venture, JR makes a great product and any 50 size is a bit more stable and easier to see. What are guys flying in your area? You're better off with a heli the better pilots are flying (Raptor, Venture, Evo) because they're experienced with its unique traits, what to watch out for, set-up questions, etc. If you're on your own, it's whatever you personally like and get a good deal on. All the modern 50-size helis could be used as trainers.

Flying helis since gyros had springs.

the venture 50 is a great heli, but repair parts are a bit on the expensive side. i had a venture until i had a fight with gravity. now i have a raptor 50. the parts are more readily available, and more people seem to fly raptors than ventures. this can help the learning process.

I have a Venture 50 and for me its good. easy to setup and flys smooth, and is 3d capable. But in saying that if the evo 50 was out when I was buying Id rather have one of them instead.(the evo came out about 6months after I purchased the venture) But hay the venture will easily outfly my ablilities at the moment.

The bigger the heli, the more stable it will be (generaly speaking). But do not under-estimate the power on these machines, they can shoot out of site in a matter of seconds if not careful.

Have fun and enjoy this great hobby! Happy Flying!!
