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. :shock: 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". :roll: 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.

Blade CX is a good choice. The Walkera Lama 2-1 is a good choice as well. I Just bought a Walkera 4#6 which is my first single rotor heli. Has the CNC metal head upgrade, brushless motor, and shaft driven tail rotor. Should be interesting as I am used to coaxial helicopters. Hopefully I won't break that one so quick. My co-pilot (3 year old Aliyah) we'll be here this weekend so, I hope we have no wind..............and no crashes :roll:

I fly better out side for sure but its much more fun inside :shock: :P 8-)

the gas 50 raptor is just scary especially after a hard landing on the skids and the rotor head clutch siezed up as well as a boom strike......450 bucks shot ;)

the high end dragonfly is fun inside too

That is so cool! It looks like he's using the Segway idea in a flying craft. How do I get one? Ohhh, just kidding, unless it was $100 I'd never justify the cost of such an exotic toy. Can it be up-sized so it can carry a payload of...say... (going to the bathroom for a quick scale check)... 168 pounds? :)
