Initial cost, and parts support/availability.

Check with your LHS, and your favotite online retailers. See what they have, and what they stock. There's no point in buying a heli if you can't get support for it.

However, My vote goes to the Trex 600. Inexpensive to buy, and parts are everywhere. And, just because a machine is capable of hard 3D, doesn't mean that it has to do it. The 600 can be a great sport flyer, too

Hell... I can fix that.
Uh oh..
It's ***ked!!!

See what your LHS carries and check out your local field and see what they suggest.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

three days, three of the same thread... (not smart-arse, just noted)

11 dec:
12 dec:

see if there is any good info in the other two threads.

specific to this thread:

Yes, as already stated, they can all be desensitized through the radio and through the mechanics, some easier than others. They can be made mellow for a beginner or reactive for when you are more advanced.

A larger nitro heli will be very intimidating compared to your blade when you first start it up, but will be a lot more stable. Great machines, if you like running nitro.

600N gets my vote due to cost and availability of parts and support. It's a brilliant flier too.
