Welcome to the forum. I agree with Daisy, the shorter flight should be less stressful. Congratulations on your indian ringneck. I had two for a while. The one was tame when I got her and never lost her tameness even when she went for a long time without any contact with me (when I went away to college). The other was not tame and never became tame, the closest I ever got to her without freaking her out was about 3 feet. I never tried to work with her. The tame one I had for 20 years, the untame I rehomed after about 10 years because her living situation changed to being inside the home as opposed to the aviary and she was not comfortable with it.
I love the ringnecks, they are one of the most beautiful birds (despite their relatively lack of color) and I guess they are pretty flighty, but I never had a problem with my ringneck, I don't like clingy, needy birds. The only thing I would warn you about is their loud calls and mine tended to be nippy when pushed too far.
