Welcome Robert. I would spend some sim time first. I would also not recommend anything smaller that a 30 size machine. You can get in pretty cheap . Look at a Hawk Sport as an entry level machine.

aodrob,

I can't agree with Al more......

Going with something like what you're asking about will more than likely set you up for failure....

Al....... do I hear the russle of pom pom's headed this way ??

No, I just think Robert "needs" to shop in the bargin basement , to keep entry level costs down.

That Hawk Sport in the add comes with a nice JR transmitter set-up. We should be seeing the Wasp and his pom-poms in here soon, if we keep up this Century talk.

Flight Simulator!

I agree with Al and I'll be purchasing a Tiger 50 too. A simulator is the first step, because it pays for itself over and over and over. I try to fly my simulator on a daily basis. Helicopter skills tend to deteriorate rapidly, maybe that's why the pro's fly two hours a day.

Robert,
I have a HB v3 fixed pitch and a blade CP and have found both to be excellent entry level helis. They are basicly indoor flyers due to their size but on a calm day you could go outside with either one...
I agree the 60 size helis are easier to see and handle but to get into this hobby for under $250 bucks and not have the expense of nitro is a big plus.
The honey bee cp is along the same lines as the blade cp If you scroll down the main menu here you will see a total electric section to post your questions in, just pick the catagory your interested in.....
Go get your heli and a good sim and enjoy the hobby, the small ellectrics are great little bird.....

Tom..... No "D" flying....
