If you are new to helis, get a simulator first IMO. They are not easy to learn how to fly and can be infuriating at times. Try it on the SIM to make sure you want to get into a hobby that is totally addictive as well. After 1 month hard out on the SIM, try and pick up a secondhand Trex SE or similar to start learning on. From there you'll start to know what you want but more importantly what you need to really get into this hobby. Get the best radio you can afford as you'll likely have this for a very long time.

250
I didn’t analyze haw new you here to this hobby.

For 250 you can buy a Blade CX 2 or something like that, but I agree, buy a Simulator.

Or buy both!!

Both of your links are dead but WHY do you like them? How do you know what is a good or bad heli at this stage? GET A SIM. Reflex, RealFlight G3 or Phoenix - whatever, just get one. To come to the boards and not listen is NOT a good start.

Your AGNH1100 is an Align T-Rex 450 SA with a motor and ESC. It's an ARF, and the price is $269.

BUT -- you'll need to buy a radio (Spektrum DX6/DX7, JR 7202, FUTABA 6EXH or 7C as a minimum), three Hitec HS65 servos or equivalent, a GY401 gyro or equivalent, a tail rotor servo (anything from a Hitec HS-50 to a Futaba 9650), at least a couple of 2100 3S LiPo batteries (20-25C discharge rate continuous), a LiPo battery charger, and a few tools. By the time the smoke clears, you'll have spent about $800-$900 on your $269 heli, a bit out of your proposed budget of $250.

BUT, that would have been a very nice setup.

Now, about your budget of $250 or so. The Blade CP Pro is probably a reasonably priced, small electric heli that has a chance of getting you airborne. And, it's pretty much got everything you need to go right out of the box.

Yes, these things break easily. The Blade CP is an ARF -- pretty much fully assembled out of the box. Once you crash it, it becomes a kit. Some kits are difficult to build, others relatively simple. A lot depends upon your ability to run a screwdriver or allen wrench.

Parts are available, so that $250 is only a starting point. Crashes cost money. Be prepared to spend additional money for repairs.

A VERY good investment at the start is a PC-based flight simulator for RC helis. Not the Microsoft variety you get at the PC Gaming stores, but something like Reflex XTR, Real Flight 3.5, Phoenix. These cost in the neighborhood of $200 - $300. But they will save you many times that cost in replacement parts.

Find someone local who can help you.
