Have been out of the Hobby for over 12 years and now just getting back into them. All they had was nitro back then. Got back into the hobby last year and all these electrics were buzzing around. My first heli getting back in was a Storm 450 3G FBL heli. Took me awhile to understand and program the FBL controller but it flew perfect and flew like a bigger heli. I am into the trex 500's now and is a perfect size for me.
OK!
Nitro, loud, smokey and messy as well as the cost of nitro these days BUT the smell of nitro and the sound of the engine is cool.
Electrics, Clean, no mess, recharge lipo and fly and fly almost anywhere because there is no engine noise so no complaints.
The Electrics can do anything a nitro can do and the bigger electrics can produce more power than it's nitro counterpart. Buy enough lipo's and get a full day of flying. charge them up again and get another days full flying. I am staying electrics

Still learning to fly

I have both, Fusion 50 FBL and Velocity 50 FB nitro and I love both. The Fusion 50 fbl, 12s and it has awesome power, not to much maintenance except setup and after crashes.
Nitro is messy but the smell and the tinkering, I love because Im a mechanic by trade. So I think I have the best of both worlds. Nitro flight time is longer but how long do you really want to fly at any given time, just my 2 cents.

Which One....
If you are just getting into the hobby , you are at a good point to choose..(instead of going from one to the other!!) Or as above both isn't a bad idea, but for learning take on one or the other.. mine are all either electric from the start or are converted nitro/gasser mechanics...
I think that the best thing that you could do at this point would be to find a local club that you will be joining, and go visit and see what they are flying and ask questions there.. then make your choice from there.... these will be the people helping you learn and using what they have will make the help easier to get...

Good Luck and no matter which you choose, HAVE FUN.. Stan

I agree with doorman 100%, my boy Reese is helping with the nitro side and when I ventured in 12s from a Trex 500 my friend John Thompson helped out a lot. I love both the heli's, with nitro plan on tinkering more, I think.
