Sounds like you'll need an Ion to keep you happy!

It is true that the initial outlay for batteries is high. However, if you fly frequently and compute the cost to buy nitro, the equation becomes much less disproportionate. If you crash an electric you run the risk of destroying the batteries (especially lipo) which would be comparable to instantly burning two years worth of nitro. A gasser is another story, even if you burn camper fuel it is hard to beat the economy but of course you don't have the freedom from sound pollution that electrics afford. BTW, I fly electrics and gassers so there are my biases.

Look into a MA Ion-X or a Mincopter Joker 2 CX. Seeing
your from Germany, and the Joker is German made, you might
get a better price.

In either case you want LiPo batteries and a good
charger.

It's hard to argue price, but $$$ are everything.

also the price of the kit is another two years of fuel

Take a good close look at the Henseleit 3D-MP as well. The option to run electric or with a quick swap, run a 50 nitro package. That's my next heli.

Just a thought...Getting a big electric, with maybe 3 good lipo batts and decent brushless has got to get you close to turbine money..eh?
