I agree they are easier to fly with the electronics package but if you try to fly one in manual mode, it's not so easy. I learned on a couple of mini quads, the Blade MQX. When I was sure I could fly safely and sanely, I stepped up to larger platforms.
I've got a mini heli but I'm not so good with it. It's a MCPX V2. Little red thing. I'm so bored with the foul weather here I may drag it out and buzz the shop with it.
You a member over at helifreak?
Sounds like some of the Eflite stuff? My first heli was a Blade CX2, then I had a "Twister 3D Storm" from JPerkins, similar to the Blade 400 (or Blade 450 now...)
Those MCPX helis are great though, I have one which is similar but hasn't got the collective pitch (MCX), and when it's calm its awesome in the garden.
I've visited occasionally, I suspect I've registered previously but can't remember my login name... definitely not a regular poster though.
