My 2 cents
I, too, started with a Blade CX for the sole purpose of getting myself familiar with the controls. While the CX was a bit twitchy it taught me how to handle the twitchy situations, which could probably come in handy someday. I also use the G3 simulator and spent hours flying the Impala 30 in hover practices. It wasn't until last Friday that I actually had my first nitro heli (the Raptor 30). I admit I was nervous when trying my first hover but all the times practicing on the simulator and the Blade CX really paid off. The Raptor 30, in my personal opinion, was much easier to hover around than the simulator's Impala 30. Take baby steps, as someone once said to me, and it's true. Although I'm still new to helis and haven't hovered more than 10 minutes I can say this: pace yourself.
