Default Returning to RC Helicopters

Hi, I stopped flying helicopters about 10 years ago and sold up mainly due to lack of a flying field.

Back then I had a Thunder Tiger Raptor 90SE, JR radio and OS engines. How things have changed!! Glow has lost ground to electric, Thunder Tiger do not sell the same range and JR seem to have disappeared along with Revolution Models in the U.K. where I used to buy all my kit.

So so have to start afresh. Electric would definitely appear the way to go, but need some suggestions on a helicopter and radio. I liked a larger one for the stability as much as anything, but open to suggestions......

If you are flying 3D you dont have much of a choice but to go electric. Not a ton of nitro helicopters out there anymore and the ones that are there, lack power in comparison to the electrics. If you are a casual flyer, mild 3D...... go with a gasser. 30-60 minutes on a tank of gas is nice.
