Default Heli advice

What is the best Heli to start with? The best bang for the buck so to speak. To see if this is for me. I'm a long time plank flyer that has been doing 3D for about 4 years. What would be a good starter for me?

Thanks
Terry

If you decide to go with a Blade 400 (don't know your budget), you should be able to find them for about $400 + shipping online. One place I can think of right off the bat is www.ka-planes.com . I buy my ESky heli parts from those KA-Planes and have never had a problem with my order.

WOW Thanks for that link. Looks like very good deals. Anybody have views on the Black Hawk Helis like this one.

or you can wait like a month and get the Swift 16 RTF that century is comming out with... the bigger they are the easier it is to learn on. and its only $100 more than the blade 400, but you dont get a spektrum dx6i

just remember that while they are easier to fly, larger helis are more expensive to repair... from what i've seen.
