Default Would this make a good first cp heli?

I was wondering if this would be a stable heli to graduate to after a coax:

Yep, a very good trainer heli!

But since it's nitro, there are a lot of things to consider and I recommend you have help from someone local.

No doubt the heli is a worthy contender - but the radio and servos??? Never heard of them??

I have a raptor 30. It is very stable. Great as a second heli ,after learning a coaxial. The only issue i had is the engine. TT39 is powerfull but the carburator is difficult to be tuned correctly and dosen't keep its tunning for long time. I prefere an OS max .37. Another problem is the stock exaust of this engine. It doesn't want to stay on. It looses during flight ,causing tank pressure leak. That means lean running and overheat.

Here is a package deal in the same price range that has a great 30 size heli, great motor, proven radio and proven gyro system.

I think you would be much better off with it.
