When you mentioned how our RC stuff "reflects real heli physics" I just wondered if you caught one of the subtle differences.
Yours ( and most rc stuff) leans to the right. On a real, or full scale heli the main rotors spin in the opposite direction so the thrust from the tail rotor is reversed and they lean to the left (at least here in the US). Not really important and won't have ant effect on your learning curve.
My FP still flies, and I take it almost every time I go out. The sight and sound of the 450 still intimidates me and I know a repair will be much more expensive so I'm just more confident with the FP.
