Bubble gum,Bubble gum in a dish, I would help but I dont know neither about none of them. I would have to say pick the one that you will feel comfortable with and will not get tired of flying.

the esky heli is much harder to fly then the cheaper clone 450 or 500

500 even easier an good for beginner the 459 is good and parts are cheaper for the 450

The 500 is NOT a good heli for a beginner. One,,,you won't find any that are RTF,unless you pay mucho $$ for someone to build,,,the 500 is a build heli. Secondly,,the cost,,beginners are very prone to crash,,rebuilding a 500 is costly. For a beginner,,,I'd recommend the Blade SR,,it was developed for beginners,,,ready to fly right out of the box and set up to be stable and docille for beginners. And it can be adjusted for more agressive flying as the beginner progresses.

Speakin as new to helis but 20yrs rc experience rtf aka rtr is bad for the hobbie in alot of ways .The biggest being the noob buys rtf/rtr becouse its open the box and have fun so they think.The first time something goes wrong alot of times they don`t have the knowledge or the patience to bother trying to fix it and bam for sale or collect dust.In other words they thought by going rtf/rtr they could cut out the dirty work wrong if its an rc hobbie you will be working on it plain and simple.If u don`t want to biuld it u don`t want to fly or drive it.Rich

I have bought all of mine so far as RTF and fix/modify all my heli's. If it breaks, I work on it till I figure out what I need to do and make it happen. If I can't fix it or replace the part, then I will modify it if feasible. I had to do that for my CP Pro 2 skid arm. I couldn't find 3mm carbon fiber rod, so I just drilled it out to 3.2mm(1/8". Now I can find all the 3.2mm rod I need when I need it. I think it all depends if the person is mechanically inclined. Bruce Jenner doesn't fix any of his heli's, he has the shop do all of his work.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I agree if you are mechanicly inclined and have a good head for machines rtf or kit doesn`t matter i prefer to use my own electronics since most rtr/rtf major skimp there.But alot of novices buy rtr/rtf for the wrong reasons and find out the hard way you will be working on it.Amd the novice that leans towards kit does so becouse he /she is mechanicly inclined and welcomes the fun of biulding its always been half the fun for me .Rich

I would've gone the kit, but I didn't have a good transmitter and the kit/electronics cost was too high. My next one will be one that I build and I will be ready for it by then.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

RTF is fine if you are on a super tight budget. It doesn't matter whether you start with a kit and build it, or you rebuild your RTF after it gets the snot crashed out of it. I think the "You need to build a kit" mentality is a throwback to the balsa frame planker days. With helicopters, you WILL build it eventually. The only difference is a kit is built on the front end while the RTF is built on the back end. No matter what, you still end up at the same place: Building/rebuilding and flying rc helicopters.
