"No NEW topics that:

Does this mean I can't ask what is a good quality heli for its price.

I'm a first timer and I want a quality helicopter (6ch) I was first thinking Dragonfly35/36 but I've heard reviews that it sucks!

Try these SEARCH results

I went to SEARCH and then put "beginner" in the query field (for some reason "best" does not work), changed the Search Forum to "Beginners Corner and Links" and changed to "Search titles only".

There are some threads that are not what you want, but there is a whole lot of useful reading there. You could also do a search using "dragonfly" and find out what other people have to say about that particular model.

I'd suggest you check and see what others are flying in your area. As a general rule you don't want to get a small ultra light heli to start with. Your best bet is to look into getting a good simulator such as a Reflex or G3. For a first heli, I'd really think about a 30 or 50 sized nitro machine. I started with a Raptor 50v2 and have been extremely happy. When it comes to buying a transmitter, get the best one that you can afford. You won't be sorry you did.

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it!

Allo, not to disagree with MicroDOC or anything but I would get the BEST Transmitter you can get 1st and get a used decent condition heli there after, upgrading your remote will be more costly then upgrading or moving to another heli. If you are going to stay with helis get something more than a 6 channel as you will out grow it very fast.. Airtronics RD8000 is the best Tx for the dollar, easy to use and program.. Just my thoughts..

Go Nitro.. You wont regret it..


Evolution.. Times Have Changed.. Has Your Heli??? Sceadu Evo.. Tomorrows Heli.. Todays Evolution

glow cost about the same
I'm a newbie also. I bought a trex450 x first. not knowing that you could get 30 size glow up and running for just a few dollars more..I already had a futaba 7C ( you cab find good deals on ebay for new TX, or whole systems).. I went for the century hawk pro, but looked long a hard at raptor 30 v2, and audacity tiger 50.. you can also pick up good simulator program at good price if you shop around. just make sure you computer has what it takes to use it
