If you're afraid to fly around, save the scale fuselage until you're comfortable flying a helicopter.

Agree 110%....
If you are not comfortable enough to move it around, even with some sort of system in it, you still need to fly it... so it really isn't going to do you a lot of good.... Like BarracudaHockey said... save the fuselage for another day....
As far as stabilazation goes, I have just been working with a Flymentor for a friend... and so far it seems like it is going to work pretty nicely... and not real expensive.... and you do not need to purchase a tail gyro since that is there also...
But during the testing so far, you still need to be able to fly the heli, and the system will correct if you let go of the sticks, but then you still need to be able to stop it and to move it forward... suggestion is this: Get your pod and boom heli and add the Flymentor to it and learn to fly it around...nothing fancy, but be comfortable doing curcuits and taking off and landing,.... as you get comfortable, then add the fuselage to it... it will save you a lot of time and $$....
One other suggestion that I would think to be even more valuable would be to fly the HECK out of a simulator, skip the system and go learn to fly your pod and boom heli... then pop it into a fuselage and meet us all at IRCHA this year and join in the fun!!!!!!
Good Luck, Stan

Thanks Stan and BarracudaHockey for the advice. Will fly the pod and boom for now until I can do figure 8 and circuit.

It increases the crash cost proportionally but the pucker factor expotentially once you slap that fuselage on
