Well I did it I got my brother hooked on flying!!! He picked up the sim a few times and got mad a said "this sucks!!!!"
WELL NO MORE!!!! He picked it up the other day and was actually having a better time with it. And last night..."can I play that game?" I said sure!!!!!! He can almost hover in one spot tail in. Made me sooooo happy. I knew he would come around soon enough!!! Now I just need to get Dad into it!!! He just retired a few months ago too...

So that means a Tiger 50 in his future!!!!! Christmas gift...hmmmmm.

I knew you'd get him hooked. See you soon

I'll admit I'm not a great pilot, but I can hover with the best of them.

Great Idea!
Jeff was just here at the shop, wish I had seen your post b4 he left.
Sorry I ran out of the servos you needed, those have been a real hot item. But let me know if you need anything in the future, we carry parts for almost everything.

That's alright, if work related stuff didn't tie me up all day I would have called you first thing yesterday morning.

It was a pleasure chatting on the phone, how's your supply of Century parts for the Predators, getting stuff from Heli-world takes forever, my orders always qualify for free shipping but waiting 7-10 days for stuff wipes out a weekend of flying the preds.

Hey Jeff,
Should we bring our own controllers

Frustration has built in my bro. But he has the will to keep going!!! He has picked it up almost everyday this week. Now that I explained that its minor stick inputs to hover, not jerking the sticks. He did his first loops, although he shouldnt be. I would be a happy camper to have someone to fly with, thats my age too!!!!

My few Tiger friends...if you are ever in Ct. I have the most beautiful place to fly. My grandparents live in Topsmead State Forrest, my Grandfather built the park. 17 acre open field, one tree in the middle but PLENTY of flying space. Now this is private so dont show up without me or you may see Granny with a shotgun!!!!!! I have been flying at a ball field, usually a small area so its so nice to have a HUGE open area.

I did my first funnel yesterday!!!! Flips and loops are NO PROBLEM. My circuts are looking better too.

I love my Tiger by the way. It brings me much joy. Jeff
