You guys are all pretty cool.

Why don't you all come over to my place for a BBQ on Saturday and bring your TREX!

Wouldn't that be wild!

The most interest I get from my friends on the TREX is a casual glance over the parts and model. "looks expensive?" But yet I have no motivation to join a flying club. I guess that's what I like about the TREX, I can fly it anywhere. I'm not an antisocial person, I just don't have any desire to make the hobby social, maybe if I get into it deeper, like with a nitro bird?

Anyhow, I thought it might be an interesting topic because a lot of you vetrans adivise us newbies to join a club.

...I hate the word "BLING" can't stand it.

Have the glaciers retreated enough yet to see the ground?

It's not the glaciers you have to worry about, it's the Polar Bears fighting you for your steak! You Americans crack me up. lol

I live in a very rural part of British Columbia and to the best of my knowledge there is nobody flying RC helicopters around here. I see planes and cars/trucks but no helis. No LHS to assist either. I personally know of one person that spent $1500 on a nitro 50 size heli and all the gear and tried to do everything himself. He did drive to Calgary (8 hrs round trip) and had it setup and one quick lesson. Came home and crashed it. To the best of my knowledge it is still collecting dust in his garage.

I think it would be great if there were a club to join and get some help from experienced, knowledgeable people. For me the next best thing is this forum. Also, starting out with something small, yet flyable, has been a very good choice. The TRex for me has been awesome. If there were a club I'd join, so I'm for them I guess. But not for socializing, I'd rather fly!

well...

if i owned a lear jet i would certainly commit... but its gonna be a bit of a long ride for me w/out the lear jet.

if i could shrink myself to GI Joe size i would happily fly my Trexy over to your place.... but somehow i don't think thats gonna work out...

but i know your feeling... there are actually a couple of flying fields not terribly far from me... i just don't have interest in that. i prefer to fly anywhere but.

Good Day: crashed thx to dumb thumbs. Bad Day: crashed mechanical malfunction. Every Day: CRASH :)

Yeah I know, you boys south of the 49th think we Canadians live with moose graising in our back yards and all our roads are gravel during the summer months. Here in YVR we have couple of paved roads, they sure are fun to drive on, a real treat!

I was up there last year after stopping by and seeing RKELDER (Ray) on the way. It was nice up there, too much traffic though, quite a busy city.

Man I know how you feel! Most people I know just give me crap about my toy helicopters. Don't know anyone else who flies these locally.
I also don't really care for the whole club thing. The only clubs around here are too far to justify joining. I like to fly a pack or two before/after work at the park.

I'd join your bbq, but got relatives visiting this weekend.
