Yeah...I can imagine your "pucker factor". lol
Once you can get it outside...will you really be able to tell the capabilities of the helicopter. I can hover my mCPX around inside, but it can take off so fast in any direction that I never try to fly a circuit with it in the house. Outside, I can open it up and fly it really well. Even the mCPX probably can get up to around 15 or 20 mph and quite fast!
These smaller micro type helis serve a great purpose because they are soo tough. You can crash multiple times given you can get on the TH switch pretty quickly and not break anything. Be back flying in as long as it takes to walk over and pick it up off the ground.
Having that piece of mind really improved my flying as it gave me more confidence to try to fly because I wasnt afraid of crashing and causing myself a bunch of down time waiting on parts and then repairing the damage. Now, there isnt a heli that I own that I cant fly. Something I couldnt do until I bought my micro CP heli.
Keep practicing. A SIM will also help you leaps and bounds.
