Don't worry that you made a "mistake", there is not one helicopter that will "teach" you to fly. You will have to work with each model's strengths and limitation. If you can find someone who flies helis, or a local helishop, they may be able to help you. Learning on your own is very difficult; but at the same time it can be done. Get a sim, but more importantly, since you already have the helicopter, get training gear. The training gear will give you the extra little protection so you are not picking up the pieces and trying to put it back together all the time. I would second the RADD school of flying. If you take it a step at a time, you will get good at it. It will be extremely frustrating at the beginning, because you will feel you are not making any progress, but one day everything will "click". It may take a few months, or a year before you are confident, but it will come. How long does it take to learn to fly an RC helicopter? ...
Good luck.
