I'm sure you will be fine.. FBL takes some of the bad habits out of the heli, and I found makes it easier to fly..

But If I were to make a suggestion.. Have a look at BeastX or VBar.. I think you will be much happier than with the 3G setup.. I've only seen 1 3G heli fly, and I wasn't impressed..

+1 to Vbar (I can't personally recommend the BeastX because I have not flown it, I have no doubt though that it is very good, given it's reputation, more paddle like from what you read)

And given your flight style, take a look at the Mikado Logos. There's a lot of fan-talk about them, but since I got my Logo 500 flying I understand where it comes from. I am still pretty much a noob, but the Logo flies so well with the Vbar that huge loops, incredibly high turns and inverted flight seem easy. And the sound and efficiency is great too. Ok, I'll stop raving and go flying :-)

Oh, simulators: It's hard to say, I find all models in the simulator to fly somewhere between the paddle helis and the Vbar. My 450s have much more interaction between cyclic commands than the sim, but the Vbar Logo flies much more stable and precise.

Cheers from Brazil,
