$hit that sux about all the excess baggage charges, I told you guys you could have left those helis behind for next time, we would take real good care of them

You should have been a bit lighter on the way back then on the way here, did you get away without paying excess on the way here?

The DVD of the event will be out in a few weeks, so you will have a kick-A$$ copy of all that went down.

Wow so much excess, one would think that you would be lighter on the way back after using all the fuel and couple of crashes. or maybe Curtis had a secret stash of corn he chopped up lol.

And I offered to take a ENV off him.
Excess Baggage = $750, or Give me an ENV and save $750

Win win situation for both!!

Buzzin Brian is just classic on the TV clip, he is one all American boy that one

When are you back Jonny? I thought you were flying in on Monday.
Do you have to go to Taco land again or are you all done there after this trip?

The look on there faces on the swing in Rotorua is priceless.

I cant believe how totaly approachable they all were. I must have spent a good hour+ with Brian goin over my heli. Not to mention a few hours total with Tim from the US and Mark Lilly.

Just regestered myself for the event in Wellington on the 11, 12, 13 march. Looking foward to seeing some of you there.

Guys I just wanted to jump in and let you know we are home, safe and sound. That was NOTHING short of an amazing time!!! Jet lagg aside, I would jump on a plane right now to do it all over agian without question! The people in New Zealand are simply awesome! If anyone here ever gets a chance to visit that part of the world, do NOT think twice! You will NOT regret it 1 bit. But as I have been told, do NOT forget to visit the South Island. Something I hope to do myself one day!

Again, thanks everyone from New Zealand for the wonderfull welcome, and event. It was all our pleasure to be there. I can assure you that!

Brian

HELL YEA!!!
Big ups to MR BLADES OF GLORY RAYNMAN for helping me maiden my K3D tonight and hooking me up with a neck strap. Was the first time i have flown a real heli (crashed a little yellow sh!tbox a bunch of times). Managed to hover 1.5 tanks before battery ran out. Was a couple of wind gusts but i managed to keep it one piece.

Didn't need to change a thing on the heli, blades tracked sweet as a nut.

Im still shaking.

Ben.

Congrads on the first real heli hover Ben.
Its a great feeling.

Bet you got a big smile on your face to go with the shaking.

Where abouts in the Hutt are you? Where do you fly?
Im a Stokes Valley lad. (grew up there)

Thanks.

Ear to ear.

I used to crash the king2 in the back yard. Oh and obliterated it once at fraser park.

I flew in wellington tonight, but i think most of my flying will be at the club in trentham.

Im in taita.

Ben.
