I had my mind set on a 50 nitro and thats what I started with. I bought a used raptor titan with a older futaba radio for $750 and you can them alittle cheaper now. Im glad I didn't waste time and money on a little, fairly unstable helis. Go for the goal of what you intend to fly. Get some help, I never crashed my first heli because of it.
My sim was first before anything

If your not totally ready to jump feet first into this thing and go all the way, then i would definitely suggest getting a sim first. See if you indeed like flying and will want to really learn and expand your skills with the real thing. After all of that and you still want to get a heli and stick with this hobby, but aren't ready to go all out just yet. I would suggest getting a Trex 500E. It is a great heli, built well and very stable. It won't intimidate you like the larger 600 or 700 sizes, but will still be much more stable than say a 450 would for a beginner like yourself. From there on you will be able to make your own decisions. that is IMHO, if i was starting all over again its probably what i would do. Just FYI
