no matter what answer you get PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF GAWD don't ask which manufacturer is better. we have enough of those. RR needs to start a battlefront forum for them. sheesh.if it ain't broke, break it.

A 50 size will be the best way to go. I prefer models with CCPM. I just like the simplicity and low parts count.

ccpm isnt better or worse necessarily (that's a subjective term). it can be easier for a beginner because there are less linkages to have to fiddle with.

ccpm can be just as challenging as it makes programming the radio (you will need a radio that can handle ccpm) a bit more difficult. and, because 3 servos are used for each of the 3 head controls (aileron, elevator and pitch) it can be tricky getting any unwanted interactions rooted out.

that said, i prefer ccpm for its simplicity.
if it ain't broke, break it.

50 can handle the wind better. If you can afford it, get the bigger one.

True except when it comes to fuel costs which will be at least double. And you will use a lot of fuel learning to fly. The 50 does fly better than the 30 and it does handle wind better.

As far as which one, just pick one, they all fly well.

That being said, I'm ditching them both and going electric. Probably a Logo 10. Anyone interested in an Evo 50?

Altitude can also play a roll in this choice. If you love above 3500 feet or so elevation, go with the 50. At higher altitudes, the 30s just don't have the power they need. The 50s are still quite powerful at high altitudes.

Of course, engines like the OS 37 have made this particular consideration less important than it used to be!

Forget about the 30 size and fly 50 it is much better and save your money in the future ,I mean the 30 heli is just 5-10 cm more boom length
and the power is abit to small for the size to handle with 50 size
you will get all that chaos out of your hand!Just get the 50 size because in the future you might have to buy 50 size heli if your are using 30 size heli
well up to you!
Good Luck!

If you can afford it you might want to go for a 50, since eventually you probably will want one. However at my field I have a 32 and the guys with 50s can get pretty jealous of my 30 minute flight times

Pros and cons:

Size 30: more affordable machine, longer flight time, less fuel consumption

Size 50: more power to grow into, more stable (easier to hover - though anyone can learn with a 30), it will satisfy you for a longer time.

Personally I am glad I got the 30, the longer flight times helped me progress quickly, and I have saved a lot of $$$ and trips to the store because of lower fuel consumption. This being said, I would have prefered to get a 37 instead of the 32 I have to get more power without overheating (has been a problem on exceptionally hot days only), and I expect to eventually (1-2 years into the hobby) upgrade to a 50.

90, I'll 2nd that. More stable, easier to fly.
So long as you are not easiley intimidated.
You'll want a 90 about 10 mins after you master the 50
