However I am looking for a complete nitro set up for my first heli,like a RTR until I get the expertise to start getting into gets and higher end helis. Any help?

Dont get caught up in thinking you need high end helis or every upgrade possible...You can get a rtf raptor 50 cheap these days or something along that line...Save your money and learn to fly...

As mentioned above, Align 600n or Raptor 50 will be about the least expensive and easiest to get parts for.
Good luck and stick with it!

Agree 100%

I started with a Raptor 30, and now have 2 Raptor 50's (one flybar and the other FBL), plus a Trex 700N.

Even if you buy a used and assembled heli, don't be afraid to take things apart and see how they work.

Not what I would recommend
I know you want a Nitro but I do not believe those are good starting out heli off a simulator. You will likely go through a lot of parts before flying correctly.

Get a cheap electric! my two cents. Parts are cheap, crash resistant.
I have a nice Blade 120 SR with extreme canopy and a dx4 if your interested. Any of the cheaper blades work great unless your in wind

There is a MA Fury 55 listed just above your request. You can find all the other items to complete here on RR or on Ebay. There is not a better way to go than MA heli's.

I beg to differ with your recommendation to go with a small electric. Larger nitro heli's are easier to fly than the little ones by far. I learned to fly a scale nitro bird back in the early 70's, and no gyro,no heli radio. Took me about 12 months, and I was doing slow circuits.Yes, its a bitch without gyro, and I bought one after I was flying and it was like a miracle. I still have that heli, in near pristine condition. It can be done if a person does not get impatient, and go beyond their current ability.

I would also recommend a "Roto Pod" training gear for awhile. It is difficult to tip over on take off, and you can bounce it in from 4 feet, and usually no damage. It also lowers the center of gravity to make it more stable for learning circuits or what ever. Sooner or later, a person needs get off the video game and fly the real deal.People still crash after the video game, and mostly because of no training gear, and moving to fast. By that I mean they try flying advanced manuvers they are not ready for yet. Take your time, and fly fly fly. You will get there. Do not be in a hurry to do aerobatics! Hovering in front of you tail towards you is the first skill, and then nose in. Once you have that circuits become much easier. Then gradually enlarge the circuits, until you are comfy with full throttle/collective.

dont buy any heli that has the "hard to find parts" or expensive parts
get one that u can get parts locally.
also nitro might be the same to fly as a electric but electric has a lot less to deal with..( starter-tunning noise etcs)
> first invest in a good " current model" radio so u will only have to upgrade the heli..a dx7s dx8 is a good start.
trainingg gear is an excellent investmet i used long wooden dowels from home depot , and i also taught 2 nephews how to fly helis.. dont forget to enjoy...
