Not $150, but the Blade CP Pro for $220, might be a good start.

I recommend upping your budget. Cheap electric helis will only frustrate you and drive you away from a great hobby.

Wow, the ground was closer than I thought.

I had a walkera and hated it. i have a blade cp and it is a lot of work making it fly right. It's very light and the tail is a pain in the but to keep right. If you have to pick one of those go with belt cp. Remember it is a small light heli and might be hard to learn on and the electronics that come with it are not great.

pick it up and shake it off...she'll fly again

For that price range, look at Phoenix Simulator. It is electric (no fuel required) and also does not consume large amounts of replacement parts after a crash.

For around $100 bucks you can get the Walkera #4. It is a RTF fixed pitch heli. Entry level helicopter you can see if you will take to the hobby or not. If you find helis are not for you you'll only be out $100. On the same token if you get hooked and learn to hover it well, when you buy a better heli you won't feel like you already spent a wod of cash on your first heli.
I flew the heck out of mine then switched to a Trex. Later on I gave the Walkera to my neighbor and now he is hooked as well, and the Walkera still flies to this day. Don't get me wrong Walkera is JUNK, but they are priced accordingly and properly flown will get the job done.
Good luck,

Remember Knowledge, Patience, and Practice.

ok,
i am going to buy Blade CP PRO, it looks great, and I read a few recensions for this Heli... but here is one BIG PROBLEM. I am from Europe - Slovakia and I need charger to 220V and frequency must be 35 MHZ. And it is a little problem find such helicopter..e.g. on ebay..and lot of e-shops do not shipps to Slovakia and in Slovakia is this helicopter (Blade CP PRO) very expensive, accordingly I want buy it from USA.
Can you recommend some e-shop, where I can buy it?? please (220V + 35 MHZ)

Thanks very much

Hi M4rek
Do you have a transmitter and receiver all ready, If not you might consider a Blade 400, comes with everything you need to get started.

If the wings are traveling faster than the fuselage, it's probably a helicopter.

M4rek, You have posts that date back to dec 07 on the purchase of said heli and here it is march 08, Just buy the blade cx2 and be done with it already, You dont seem to have a sim and this will be plenty for you for a while.

I totally agree with the post that said "save your money and buy a better one." If you've no sim experience then the CX2 would be very appropriate as suggested, but if you need more go to a bigger heli and save yourself the wasted money. I so totally regrat buying an ESky SP Pro knockoff.. just gobs of money into the trash. To clarify, mine was not belt-driven.

A logo 10 is a great starting point. I don't really think a TRex 450 is a great way to go when you're just getting started. They are just too light and don't cost much less..

My two cents and only real heli-buying regrets.

My opinion...DON'T get a Blade CP.

I did and it took me forever to learn how to simply hover it and without adding a HH gyro, anything else was futile! Yes, it CAN be done, but why go through the heartache of such an unstable, twitchy heli? Get the BladeCX2 and have fun! Or if you really want a CP heli, get at least a Blade 400. Definitely get a sim!
