    Is Blade CX2 RTF Electric Coaxial good for that and if not what is a good one?

    Also when I'm buying a rc heli for a first time what are the things I should look for?

    And what's the price range for such helicopters?

    Though I'm a beginner I'd like to have a rc helicopter with lots of capabilities. So please give me good ones.

    They're harder than Chinese arithmatic to fly. I'm in the same boat. I went to Radio Shack and bought a three channel, called the Mosquito. Crashing one is almost a sure bet. This way I learn, have fun, and only in the hole about $60 when I trash it, by accident. It accends, goes forwards and backwards, left, right, etc. Check out the Shack for one before you loose big bucks.

    It is good for a beginner but not much else. The counter-rotating blades make it easier to fly than any other heli. But that is also a problem when you want a new heli.(And trust me you will want a bigger, faster, cooler 3D heli, it's the nature of the hobby.) No other heli's use a counter-rotating setup instead they use a main and tail rotar so you'll have to learn that. Get the Blade cp and use the training gear. Then you'll be able to move up to bigger heli's. Don't worry about crashing it's pretty durable and everyone crashes now and then.
