Wooooooooooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!

Mandy SOLO'd today!! How cool is that!

We did 2 flights buddy boxing, and I even set it up for her to try out the brand new Trex Sport, so she got 1 flight on that. Then on her 3rd flight with the Hurrican, she went solo!

She was very nervous, but stuck to her normal routine, flew some really nice FFF figure 8's, came down and landed it, and shook off the nervousness. Then she went up a second time to finish off the tank, and she even threw in a few piros!

Everybody clapped for her when she was done. It was really cool!

It's been hours since her flight - and she is still on a high!

Saturday morning I flew my helicopter in my pajamas
How it got in my pajamas I'll never know

Awesome, I havent been pushing , but I think my wife is getting close. She knows the difference between cyclic and collective and shes been getting curious about simming. If its like Socom (our other addiction) she'll be woopin' my ass in no time. She really likes the 3d aspect, and really has good hand eye, hopefully!!

Hats off Mandy, Solo'ing is a great accomplishment for anyone learning to fly Helis. Keep burning fuel. It gets more and more addictive after every tank burned.

That's awesome. We need more women pilots out there.

CONGRATS!

ps. My wife's name is Mandy... can you have your Mandy talk to my Mandy? She thinks the hobby is dumb, and expensive. I guess she is half right...

OK, I'm confused. Is Mandy the name of your heli? If so, Congratulations to Mandy for making it to the ranks of a UAV!

Nope - my girlfriend's name.

She rides mountain bikes too! She can ride black diamond trails at Mammoth.

OK - I'll get off my soap box and stop bragging.

Wow, Mandy needs to talk to my wife. Those are my two hobbies...Mountain biking and RC Helis. I [used to] ride in the Lake Tahoe area and did some downhill at Northstar at Tahoe.

That's not a freeway, but just a dead end farm road, but yep...that is a pic of Mandy.
