I started flying RC helicopters about a year ago. It's a lot of fun. I do however, tend to crash a lot and spend more time doing repairs than I do in the air.
I put my brand new helicopter in a tree last Saturday and my granddaughter found it hilarious and couldn't wait 'til grandma got home so she could tell her "pap crashed in the tree".
We did some repairs then had to order some parts. Should be here this week so we can crash again Saturday. If anyone is considering trying this, do yourself a favor and start out with a 4 channel not a 3 channel. If you fly these things you'll already know what I mean.
