Hi
CP helis are difficult to setup and fly for the novice
Best to get instruction
Next best thing and its how i learned is RADDS
http://www.dream-models.com/eco/flying-index.html
Training gear is a must
http://www.xheli.com/trkitforrche.html
And the Mystery heli is decent but needs much setup to fly properly
Theres much better CP helis out there for the novice
Remember smaller is harder larger more stable
A Blade SR or a TRex 450 are good ones to start with
Also practice extreme caution as the rotor blades once they hit a certain size and power can and will damage personal property and inflict serious even fatal bodily injury if not treated with the proper respect and safety procedures
Best of luck with your heli flight training
Take care
Yours Hank

+1 for the Trex 450, parts are readily available and almost every forum has resident experts for troubleshooting

The mcpx isn't bad for starting on and is quite crash resistant and not too expensive to buy new or used. Worth a look.
