    I really want to get it, any tips or suggestions? If you don't think I should get it, have any ideas for other helicopters to get (I am an intermediate pilot)?

    So far I've had the best luck with Walkera's. The 5#8 seems like a mix between a 5#10 and a 5G4. I have a 5G4 and I know someone with the 5#10. Both are really stable. The 5#8 is a great size for indoors. Also my 5G4 doesn't have the metal upgrades which make outdoor flight a little more tricky. The metal upgrade parts already on the 5#8 will make sure you don't get blown away in the wind as much.
