Hi everybody, i'm pretty much a beginner with RC heli's, I own a ar drone 2.0 and have gotten to the point where I can almost do most maneuvers with it, but its made to be simple with hi-tech instruments to automatically level and stop itself. Ive used a few low end 3ch helicopters but nothing crazy, and was wondering what people thing I should go with next??..ive gotten a few suggestions being the solo pro and blade mcx and the msr, and those look pretty good but I'm just making sure I go with the best option. Im willing to spend up to around 150$

I'd go with the MCX or the MSR. The MSR is a little harder to fly b/c it's a single main rotor, not coax. The solo pro looks just like another brand I bought, and it fried the PCB in 3 months flat. Crazy weak tail motor too.
Yes, I've known that I'm "different" for some time now...

I have the MCX2 and love it...but it too is stable..indoor only..and will right itself..so it won't teach you much unless you are not looking to move up in complexity..the basic 4 channel controls are there...but with it hovering by itself you will not be able to do much more...

guess the question is..is what is your ultimate goal? the 120SR is a great teaching heli if you are looking to move up to collective pitch at some point in the future...but a bit outside of your price range..

The ar drone, as much as you may think not, but it has taught you a lot. You could get a blade mqx (another quad) or the blade 120sr.
Crashing is part of learning. If you don't have any, it's like getting an F

ehh...wish i could agree...becasue the ar drone will self stabilize to a certain degree it can teach you basic control functions..but reactive control is not really the same....but a good starting point for sure..

Now that you say that it is very true...also using your phone is a lot different than an actual controller.

Thanks for the info, I guess one thing i wanted to know is that the MCX or MCX2 will be very boring for a teenager in two weeks, An MSR or solo pro would keep your interest a lot longer.
