Default Specifically, Beginner Wants Backyard/Park Flyer

Ok...so I'm a beginner looking for recommendations. I would like to hear your suggestions pertaining to a beginner electric heli that is well suited for the park or a big backyard. One that is beginner friendly, not a micro-machine, and one that can maneuver in at least some wind.

Thanks.

Have you flown any RC fixed wing before? if not:

Recommendation 1: (I learned this the hard way)

Get an RC sim, and get the hang of things on that. That way your initial mistakes are a lot cheaper.
Try:
- FMS
- clearview
- phoenix

you will need a transmitter (Tx) to hook up to these, or you could get a sim-only Tx bundled FMS for about $25 here: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...m_Mode_1_.html

This one is mode 1, which means throttle on the right stick. Mode 2 has the throttle on the left stick.
