What would be the best to start out with
I have a buddy who is just starting out, he is getting a Real Flight but has purchased a Esky Belt CPX, my opinion is that he should start out with a coxail Heli to start to learn the sticks along with the Sim. Of course he will crash so he needs something easy to reapir and not costly, I was thinking maybe a Blade MCX 2 something he can fly indoors for now.
Can you pls help us out.
Thanks

If he has a sim there is not much point getting a contra-rotating heli. Ide recommend a Blade MSRX or the 120 SR which is bigger and more capable outdoors.60% of the time, it works every time!

There really isn't anything wrong with a MCX2. Even though I have been flying for 3 1/2 years now, a MCX would be nice to have. Before I gave mine to my son, I would fart around with it in the garage or in the house.Trex 700E / Trex 500 ESP - Ikon/ HD 500 - Ikon 2/ Goblin 500 Ikon 2

I went from a Syma S032 to a 450. A 4 channel indoor heli, in my opinion, heli as a stepping stone into collective pitch is not nessesary. Sim time and a training gear are the best tools to learn with. As long as he understands he is not going to jump right into 3d or even nose in, he can learn with what he has. I believe with a proper sim practice, short practice times with a real CP heli, he should be okay.
A 1 minute time of making the heli light on the training gear and then going back to the sim is WAY better than pushing ones self to see the skids off the ground, crashing and spending a week looking at a broken heli while parts are in transit. Baby steps are the way to feel good about getting to the hover with no training gear.
Friends don't encourage friends to fly helis! It can cause part shortages.
