Timmah0422,

Or worse, the football.

Still I don't think a football would make a very good Chrismas present.

Buy him a 30 nitro/600 electric with all the accesories. Seven years ago, my wife got me a JR Ergo with all the trimmings. I fully credit this act for the success of our marraige. He will be indebted to you forever.

valerko's threesome idea would probably work, too. It would also be cheaper. Either way, he would probably be real happy.

Thanks everyone for the replies. I had a hard time getting in here to post a reply - he's always on this website!

So budget - around $500. I think the SIM sounds like a good idea. He was out flying yesterday & was doing a good job, then crashed! I felt bad for him, but he didn't do too much damage. He's got this tiny indoor heli that he flies when he can't go outside b/c of weather. (Yes he hovers it around my head to see how close he can get to it without it getting caught in my hair!)

His goal, I'm pretty sure, is to get to the point where he can do tricks and register to fly at events. WE ARE SO GONNA BE @ THE FUN-FLY ON THE 2ND!!!

Thanks again for all the replies. I can see why he likes this site; everyone is so nice!

Ok, so I need help/advice. I got him a $250 gift certificate to a hobby store - that leaves me with around $200-250 left. I really want to get him a SIM, BUT the other option I have is to get him a bad a** dry shaver for his face. (he really needs one.) If you were him, which one would you want - seriously. He will never pay that kind of money to buy a shaver & I think every man needs one, but he also hasn't bought a SIM - not really sure why. I keep thinking I could use the SIM, too, so we could have a hobby together, but that would be buying it partially for my own want/need, too; which I don't want to be biased. HELP!!

Thanks again!

Ok, one more question...I found this RC helicopter log book. Do you guys needs stuff like that? Just wondering if he would like that. I find pieces of paper everywhere with flight times, etc, but this book lets you enter in when blades were changed, etc. Is that a cool gift?

Gracias!

Some like log books and some dont... personally I have two sims but no shaver and no log book

If its cold where you live you could get him a radio mitten to keep his hands warm when he flies - do a search for raydiowarm on google. (Edit: forget it, you dont need those in Tx...). Caps and T-shirts with "JR", "Futatba" and stuff like that is always nice to have

sim over shaver hands down...

the sim will help him with the new "tricks" and the shaver will only make him look good with the radio in his hands... Do the sim... and you can use it too

Are there anymore like you around? I would like to find one if anybody has a spare around?

All I'm gonna get is a pair of jeans and then a bloody nose when I tell her I wanted heli stuff

Seriously-Go for the sim-It will save him cash in the long run and then you make him take you to the Virgin Islands with the cash he saved

Method to the madness

Why dont you do the shaving for him- it would lead into sooo much more??

I'm going to also agree on getting him a sim.

I picked up G3 and boy let me tell you it has saved me a ton of money. Serious.. a literal ton.. I mean, my red [reset after crash / reset after dumb-thumbing into the ground / reset after failing an auto when the engine dies / reset after trying something I'd never try in RL / etc.] .. yeah, the red button is wearing out I crash so much.

You can tell it to make the heli malfunction every now and then without warning. I did my first auto successfully because the sim got me ready for a suddenly dead engine.

My wife's gotten me a shaver before.. actually, a couple of times before. I think it's nice and all, but I always end up back with my razor. I like to be somewhat smooth at the end of the day and electric shavers just can't hang.

So I have a decent Remington and a very nice Norelco just gathering dust in the closet somewhere. Haven't seen 'em in years.

Pick a good sim (G3, Reflexx, AFPD, or Phoenix) and wait a couple of weeks. Then say "Hey, that looks like fun, mind if I give it a shot?"

He will fall in love all over again.

If, that after all these recommendations, and you are still totally undecided, May I suggest to you, BUY HIM A STRIPPER!

Us guys, uh, we like that.

Dear Santa,
I want all the goodies, and a helicopter that wont crash!
Even when a setup, defect, and the parts guy does not have them.
It will just fly. Oh and the paint will stick to canopy would be cool.

My name is Billm. Cough, and I'm a Heli Holic

You guys be nice.

I'g get him the SIM. It's not selfish if you enjoy the gift too. He'd be so stoked to see you on it.

If you do decide to get him a sim make sure that your pc is up to the job(fast enough) before you drop the dime on the sim. Just a thought....

I hope both of you can make it to our fun fly this Saturday, it should be a blast and he will be drooling all over the place(as will I) because there's going to be heli's everywhere!!

Also, you might not want to pull the trigger on the last part of his gift just yet. If you pay attention to what he's drooling on at the event you might get some good ideas of what he really wants. Hope to see both of you there Saturday!

Sincerely,
John
