i realize that there are probably tons of threads like this, but i'm having a hard time finding any. i've searched here and over on rcgroups but i'm not having any luck finding information that i really need. so here goes.
budget $200 or less. don't want to jump in heavy to start as it may not be the thing for me. i really love flying planes, and this would be secondary.
no real heli experience. i've flown a blade mcpx a couple times, a couple air hog toys around the house, and a couple hours on my phoenix sim. i fly planes mostly, anything from my apprentice, scale stuff like the t-28 and albatros, up to my sbach and 3d profile planes.
i have a dx5e that i use on the sim. it's about wore out as the aileron pots are jumpy (over 200 hours on sim), and a flysky 9x (all stock firmware) i fly my planes with.
what i'm looking for is a heli that i could fly in the house, and outside. i have a couple acres but there are quite a few obstacles around. really looking for an rtf (or a pnp that i could use my flysky transmitter with).
3d heli's are of no interest to me, i find i like "scale" flying of these alot better. from my readings i do not want to go with a coaxial heli. i am confused as to either go with a fixed pitch or jump head first and go collective.
i've looked at the blade msrx, mcpx, and some of the walkera stuff.
any good recommendations??
