Wow bro, youve got some patience. A very good quality to have in rc helis. I would open the box and fly it right away, but i tend to learn from experience. I would suggest a heli simulator. I recently bought real flight and so far I like it. A fixed pitch heli feels alot different to me....easier. Im sure it will give you lots of fun if youve never flown before.

How much is that part??!!

It depends really on what your goal is.

If you want to fly bigger machines with variable pitch then this little electric machine will only give you experience in orientation and attitude that's it.

Better to spend money on a good sim and then a .50 size machine like the Raptor or something.

Als seek help from fellow pilots for things like setup and such.

Good luck!
