That is correct. The tail does serve a useful purpose in keeping the gyro stabilization factors in check.....otherwise, you'd be fighting yaw all the time.
Unfortunatly, today there are very few micro heli's like, the OP is looking for, available. I'd suggest getting into something e-flight (Blade) or Walkera has on the market now.....you'll enjoy the indoor flying much more.
