Default Twister

I started the hobby a year ago with a twister 3D. I'm happy with the bird but I wouldn't do it again. If it is your first bird, spare parts are your main concern. If it had to start over I would certainly go with a 450 model such as a T-REX or Mini Titan E325 from which parts and support are plenty available.

regards,

Kurt

Yeah, many would argue that it's a bad idea to get a crap heli for your first heli, but I think it's actually a good idea. They are very cheap to crash on (plus you have local parts), and are great teaching helis for hovering and forward flight, nothing else. If you get to the stage where you can hover one no problem, you can hover a trex or beam no problem. A trex flies about 10 times better, but costs a lot more to crash (and you will crash). Get your twister heli, but after you fly it out, go directly to a nice 450 or 500 size heli, don't waste any more money on rtf ones. By the way, I just turned 15 too.
Good luck!
