Guys as much as I appreciate the wisdom and good will behind the recommendations, I am not considering anything other than a 450 for the time being. Not even a fancy 450 at that... just a plain old Align.

"600 size heli fly 100 times easier than 450s." Yes, and that is precisely why I do not want a 600. I don't want easy.

Richardmid: You said that there are no drift issues with Align's GP gyros, but then you went on to say that I should avoid the GP780?? Is the 780 generally known for having issues?

Yes but none that a beginner would really notice and still no drifting issues. They are more prone to wagging.

There is one small thing you can do with the Sport V2 that will make it more stable, there is not much you can do with the Pro to make it more stable, it was designed as an all out 3D machine.
60% of the time, it works every time!

Well, I am a beginner but I'm not sure that my flying classifies as 'beginner' flying. On the sim I'm doing sport/3D, though I am not sure how that will translate into real life so I may not actually fly like that. By wagging, do you mean a rapid back and forth oscillation as if too much gain? And is this only an issue if you are doing hard 3D?

And yes, the pro is designed to be more agile, as you can easily tell by looking at the battery placement. But I don't mind a fast heli, it's fun. Even if it's too much I could always add expo I guess.

Also, you said that it breaks servo gears often? Even though the gears are metal? How often did they break? And is this just with the Align servos or all?

you are headed in the right direction BUT dont be one of these guys thats a 3D master on the sim and can barely do a circuit on a real heli.Sim flying is nice and if DONE AND USED RIGHT is invaluable,but on its own sim flying is worthless,and I absolutely hate seeing guys on here post all these vids of themselves doing 3D on a sim..who cares??

use the sim for what its supposed to be,a training tool,use it to stay 2 or 3 moves ahead.Work on a move till you have it then immediately go transfer to the real deal.perfect this on the real heli,then repeat with new moves as necessary.

If you are attempting piroflips(on the sim) and such and have never had your real heli inverted,you are wasting your time . you will not go to the field and immediately transfer all skills like its nothing.get all hover orientations down cold including all 4 inverted...this will take discipline and time and can be boring...BUT it will improve all further flying IMMENSELY and will save you TONS of money in the long run.You wont make progress if you are always down for repairs because you are flying beyond your skills.And there is a HUGE difference between pushing yourself and constantly flying outside your skills.

As for helis its really hard to get a BAD mainsteam heli these days the technology is just incredible and the performance of 450 machines is excellant.Pick what you like,hit the sim,get batts not bling and go fly and have fun
