I'm just single (not intentionally). For some reason I have lots time and a little extra money.

I voted "other" for being single. Just keep waiting to find that little hottie that spends more on helis than I do

I've been wanting one of these things for 14 years, finally moved up to a job where it became an option and bought a R60, now all I need is some good weather!

sacrifice

I voted other. I just don't spend time (sunday) at home anymore . Miss the nascar races . My wife is not that interested in flying so she stays home . I don't work on my house . (sounds like I'm escaping my duties at home)

Dont believe Tony ..He is rich...I think he owns a chunk of microsoft .....Haha..On the other hand I just buy and fly when I have the money .. The trick is when you have, you buy and fly only buy more .Then when you aint ,you fly and dont buy ..works soso ...I guess I should say I buy less or only when my wife dont know ..Also I do alot of trading in the lean times..I still have to fly ....

LS17,You made a real good choice buying the G2 sim .. Once you learn to fly that and hover there ,you will really be able to do it with your real one .. Just take your time .. The real difference between the real and the flight sim is on the sim you have to many abilitys to change things in your favor and it dont cover maintaince of the heli .. Other than that ,it is pretty close .. Have fun

I manage to support my hobby by buying/selling/trading. I have made it pay for itself and keep my support there for crashes. I have not flown much this year due to problems and surgery with my eyes, but soon, I will be back in the air making up lost time.

Going up a skill level; pending crash!

I ordered, and just received, "Co-Pilot." I figured it was about the same cost as my NEXT crash!

So tonight I will install it, and maybe save some on the next parts invoice from Heliproz!

Sorry this is reply is serious, too many great posts above to compete with!

you missed one in the poll

STAY SINGLE ! ! ! !

the way I can afford to stay in this hobby is to stay single and choose not to have children. The amount of time and money I put into this hobby would not really be fair to kids or a relationship, and I'm WAY to selfish to change .

regards, Scott Reed

I really do not look upon the time/effort expended upon this hobby as a sacrifice.

How I see it is that I am acquiring a new skill for which I will be able to derive personal satisfaction (which one cannot put a money value onto it).

Its like , I imagine , your first successful solo hover , or , your first roll ..... the feeling is great and you're left with a silly grin for the rest of the week (or at least till your next crash...... ).

If you have in your mind that this is a 'sacrifice' ( ie , that the time you're spending here could be used more profitably elsewhere , or the money is better used on something else ) , then I think that this hobby is really not for you because it is really quite demanding in nature.


My main drive for this hobby is two fold , (a) acquire new skill , and , (b) stress relief. Works for me.
