I have been flying my blade cx2 for a few months now and would like to upgrade to something that can do more aggresive manuevers. Is the blade cp pro a good option. What about somehting like a hawk pro. In a kit like the hawk pro what all is included. Do I have to buy the transmitter and servos and all that seperatly? I am trying to find a heli that I won't get bored with too quickly but is still priced low enough that I can afford it.
Thanks for your input.

Got a sim yet? If not pick one up and then look for a 30/50 sized nitro or electric, whatever route you wanna go.

A word of advise for this hobby... You get what you pay for. If you want a cheap heli, that's exactly what you're gonna get.

Get something that you won't out grow, and something that you won't get frustrated with. A cheap heli is going to cost you more in the long run from all the parts and upgrades that you will have to put on it to make it fly. And you will get frustrated trying to fly it because it is a POS.

Save up your money and get a Trex 450, or a mini titan, or something similar to that... You'll thank yourself for it.

And if you're serious about learning to fly RC helis, get yourself a good computer simulator and practice...... This will save you alot of money as well

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
Nope.
It's ***ked!!!
RE-KIT!!!!!

Heliman79, you and a few thousand others have problems mastering the CP Pro. It takes those rare breeds that just have the natural born skills to fly just about anything to master the CPP. I've seen very good heli pilots dancing getting out the the way of those things. Been there, done that, best move I made was pushing it under my bench and getting a 450 size heli.
