well thx guysi am first going to take him out saturday evening to show how fast i learned to fly a heli. (just the basics).
heres what happened to me.
i flew the g2 for about two weeks maybe ten minutes a day for monday thru friday. then i bought a hawk sport and got it all ready and took it out to the field and someone else flew it for the first time. They said it was ready for me to fly. I said "no", i will later. so later on that evening i took it out all by myself with two hours on simulator (total time) and hovered the thing in five minutes. the next few days i hovered. then one day i decided to go into ff. i did it and sure glad i did. right now i have burned three tanks and have already done three loops, can spot land, and have flown upside down for 30 seconds. So if i can prove to my dad its easy he might just do it.
oh and........ when i decided to start forward flight my friend was there helping me and his parents were video taping. The next day my friends dad ordered the complete combo for the hawk sport. I feel good about geting someone else into it. I am going to lend them my g2 for a few weeks while i set there heli up for them.
well thanks for all the opinions.
