Do a seach at Deja.com--you'll find quite a bit to answer your question.  I can
give you a start, though:

Fuel is one-tenth the cost of nitro.

They're supposedly not as aerobatic as 60-size helis, but I don't know that an
average pilot will notice the difference.

They are more stable because they are heavier.

They crash a lot harder because they are heavier (I now know this for a FACT!)

A gasser comes with an engine.  If you are just starting out, you'll find that
it costs about the same as a 60-size heli, because you won't need as much field
equip.

Gassers are cleaner.

You have to carry gas around and it smells.  
Parts are more expensive than a smaller heli.

Here's my opinion on which is best.  I fly the Xcell and it's a great heli.  A
buddy flies the Bergen, and I like his even better. as it has fewer parts and
some better quality parts--but it's more expensive, too.  The Ergo gasser way
fewer parts but I haven't seen a decent quiet muffler for it yet.
