Coaxial helis are fun but don't really prepare you much for collective pitch helis.
The SR120 is a pretty good step in the direction of CP helis though.
As for the "toy" helis, co axial, the cool thing about the little ones at Brookstone is that you can buy an extended warranty on and they will replace it WHEN you break the heli. Never had one of those but heard them saying that one day at brookstone and thought that was pretty cool.
The good thing about the better helis, like the SR120 or even co axial Blade helis is that you can have multiple batteries and swap them out and keep flying rather than having to charge in the heli and wait to fly. Blade is the newer name of Eflite helis BTW, they dropped the eflite name from their heli lineup.
I still have a TRex 250, Blade MSR and a slightly modded Blade 400. Flew the gopro on the blade 400.
Anyone wanting to start from scratch should go with a Blade MCX, co ax. They take a beating and are easy to fly- indoors only though, a slight breeze can send them off.
Sarah Palin and friends can call it a snow machine all they want but Yamaha, Polaris and Bombardier plus the related magazines all seem to call them Snowmobiles.
Snow machines create snow on ski slopes. Just sayin'
