It all depends what you can do with the HBV2. Can you fly circles, figure eights, hover to the left, hover to the right at 10 ft, 30ft, 100 ft?
A bigger blade heli will be a bit more stable with collective pitch, so the Belt CP V2 would be nice, but you should have some basic skills down. The servos on the Belt CP V2 are slow and it's not direct to swash linkage, this makes the heli sluggish (IMHO) and does not react too well to stick input redface ... but, orange5 I would recommend the Blade 400 3D. It comes with a good Spektrum DX6i radio that you can learn from and grow with. This heli is very responsive and has no bad tendencies. It has taught me skills that I try out on my TRex 500's. Go to the RC Video forum and check out my vid with the Blade 400 3D...it's fun to fly.
With the DX6i you can program and set your exponential to your liking......the radio that comes with the Belt CP V2 is crap and does not allow programming.

Anyways... the eventual choice will be yours, so good luck with your decision and be safe.

You won't regret it....it's a nice flying heli and very forgiving. It will have you hovering quickly.

Cheers and enjoy....let's have a review from you when you buy it.

Well, belt cp would be easiest to start flying. Blade 400 is great heli, but maybe it is too much expensive? Trex clones are also great choices. You will need to assembly it by yourself and buy its electronics separately. But you will get better heli then belt cp without too much money. And we can always help you choosing electronics for it! :bigthumb:

I don't disagree with p3tras. The copterX's are really nice flying heli's and value for the money...but that is if you know to build a heli and have other spares onhand already. By the time money is spent on Gyro, cyclic servos, tail servos, lipo's and a radio, I'm sure it's up to $350 or more US Dollars.

The Blade 400 is still the best bet as it comes with everything already along with a great Radio...the DX6i. After this heli....you will know enough and have enough experience to put together/build kits.
At that point, buy a 500 kit and put it together with your new experience and go fly. The 500 heli's are more stable. You can even come back to E-Sky and buy the Esmart 600 which is an even better heli all round for that size.

Cheers.
