Default Spektrum Technology Helis around 250 size?

A new(ish) member of our club has given up (temporarily) on his Blade 120SR as being too difficult for his level of piloting.

What would you recommend as a simpler more stable Spektrum technology model around the 250/300 size?

He may want to consider an mCX2 however it is not a 250/300 size. The 120sr is pretty stable though, has a simulator been considered? One thing I find with all of the smaller helis is they can seem unstable in the wind and indoor practice is best.

All his flying has been done indoors. I haven't tried flying his 120SR myself but, from observation, it appears extremely unstable. He's asked me to have a look at it so I'll do that as soon as I get the opportunity.

Thanks for your input.

A cheap alternative thats really easy to learn on is the little Ares Nanos fp7, fixed pitch with 6 axis gyro stabilisation, ok so its tiny but that makes it even easier to fly indoors and its really cheap too.

Surrey model centre are knocking them out for 19.95 at present, amazing value for money, I've only ever flown CX before but was flying my one straight out of the box.

It would be a superb little heli at 70 but for 20? you can't go wrong.
