I'm sure the S033g is a good helicopter as it's pretty much a bigger version of the S107, and the S107 is great. I have not flown the S033G though. Are you looking to fly 4 channel helicopters? The S033G is not a 4 channel. if you are looking to fly 4 channel helicopters i would recommend getting a Solo Pro 260A http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...dProduct=20138, which is a micro 4 channel heli that will fly indoors and outdoors. I just got into this hobby as well and it's a good 4 channel to learn on. Also i would recommend learning how to fly using mode 2. it will take some getting used to but it'll just make it so much easier for you to buy helicopters without having to worry about changing the mode on the transmitter. It is a little different but once you get the hang of it, it's not that bad. Also when looking at new helicopters, you also want to look at the availability of spare parts. There are a lot of websites with spare parts for the Solo Pro 260A, which also makes it a good choice to start on. Also another thing to consider is if you want a fixed pitch helicopter, like this Solo Pro or a coaxial like the S107/S033. If you want a coaxial, i've heard good things about the ESky Big Lama.
