I would recommend a mini titan. I have a mini titan se and I think its a great little electric heli.

Man, I miss the eighties.

I would not recommend starting with any real heli. Your best bet would be to buy a computer flight simulator to learn on, because it is very hard to learn in real life.

If you have never flown a heli before
get a sim and practice practice practice
get a coaxial and learn to hover and all orientation
then get as large of a variable pitch as you can afford for stability

get alot of time on a sim till you are sure you are ready then get a blade 400. at least you can reuse the radio gear into a next heli if you want and you can get them cheap. but make sure when ready to get someone to help you out.

a mini titan is great, trex 450 is also a great heli, find something that is stable, and parts are cheap, the real thing will teach you setup and repairs, something a sim wont do. i learned on a helimax axe cp. then went to a mx400pro, buy good electronics and a radio that will grow with you,

After you master the sim. A trex450 or trex500. The 500 is more stable under windy conditions.
