I just get ready to buy a helicopter for my 11-year-old cousin. I found flying the big heli's not too relaxing and crashes were expensive. Acutaully, I have ever bought the Syma S107,and I feel it is elegant.Do you have any suggestions?

love a helicopter

Best Starter Heli

Blade mSR. Stable, but still challenging, single rotor. Indoor flyer. Robust,inexpensive parts.

Blade msR or even the SR. Very nice helis that are reasonable.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!

Blade MSR also. More challenging than a Mcx and almost as easy to fly. Sure wish it were around a few years ago when I started learning. All I had was a Blade CP and all the aggravation that went with it.

Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

+1 on the mSR. Once you decide to go bigger you can bind it to a spektrum Tx (DX7, DX6i, etc). There are settings floating on the net for DX7+mSR that really wake that little bird up!

It might not be a real heli per-se but the best and cheapest heli to learn on is a sim! Then you can also fly many different ones!

I love my flying lawn mowers!

My 12 year old son has had a mCX for about a year now and regularly chases the cat around in the house and flies room to room with it. It is easy to fly and cheap to fix.

I started with a CX2 in the house. Wife hated it but it really did a good job blowing cat hair out from under the couch and big fluffy chair. My opinion, it is too big to be in a house when starting out.

MCX or MSR over CX2 mcx is alot more stable and takes more abuse

cx2 you look at it funny and something breaks good luck on your search!
