I found following 10 step test to determine if you are addict from a Korean forum. (I'll do the best to translate)

1. You think the baby formula is expensive at $5 but never thought of $100 blade as being expensive.

2. You are happier to see UPS man then your wife.

3. The weekdays exist sorely to support weekends. ??

4. You have experience having supper while fondling the main rotor or the tail rotor of your new heli.

5. Can't translate.

6. After a crash you consider the time it takes to repair before the cost.

7. If you hear the heli flying by while walking, you look up to look for the heli.

8. You started English lesson so you can order from a English speaking foreign site or store.

9. Majority of time on the internet was spent on heli forums.

10. Your wife or neighbor have called you a heli addict.

What to say to your wife about your new heli.

(1st time) It came as a gift with the subscription to RC Heli magazine.

(2nd time) It was a prize from winning an event in the magazine.

(3rd time) It belongs to a heli buddy who is on a business trip so you took the delivery for him.

(4th time) It is a replacement for the defective heli that you bought last month.

(5th time) Stay out of the house for few days.

(6th time) You quietly and calmly wait for your wifes decision/verdict.

for #5.....

here's what i think he wanted to say...

You'd take up another language so that you can go to more heli sites and buy from places that are in an other language.

LOL!

I came up with these some time back... Time to repost them here:
--------------------------------------------------------------
If you crashed your heli into your new car, which would get fixed first?

If you flew your heli through the roof of your house at the beginning of hurricane season, would you call the roofer to repair it only after you called Rick's and ordered the parts first?

You are on your way to the LHS which is closing in 5 minutes to buy fuel and your car is sputtering because it is also about to run bone dry and there is a gas station coming up on your right. Do you pull in for gas or try to stretch it to the LHS?

You are flying your helicopter and you see a terrorist with explosives strapped to his chest running toward the local Starbucks would you crash your heli into him saving lives or just say "screw it, they can build another Starbucks but Vic Campbell will never make another set of V-Blades this nice"

You are cleaning your OS50 carburetor in the sink and the cat-eye slips down the drain but you can see that it's lodged just right and if you reach over and grab your wife's toothbrush you may be able to fish it out. What do you do?

Did you cry more when your mother-in-law died or when you had your last crash? During the funeral, did you think about your helicopter to pass the time? When the funeral was over and after your wife had buried her mother, did you even remotely entertain the thought of asking her if it was ok to slip off to get in a couple of flights?

If you answered all the above questions in favor of your addiction then you need serious psychiatric help. Just remember to bring your laptop to the waiting room so we can link up for a G3 session to pass the time

Here's a couple of....in the blood (literally) heli addict facts.
1. I was in hospital last week and I was looking at the small plastic clamp on my intra-venus drip and wondering if the same device could be used as a fuel clamp on a heli (they gave it to me when I left!!)
2. Sometimes, when I put my coffee cup down I 'flare' the cup (heli approach style) before 'landing' it on the place mat.
3. I look at 'every' open space or large building as a potential flying site!

I have got it bad!!!

need a 12 step program

Just started in March: XRB Lama was first heli

June 1st I purchased a Trex 600. Shortly after I started buying planes thinking they are cheaper and it would keep me busy.

Now I want a 600 nitro... And a Raptor 90 and a Fury and......

I look at every open space as a flying site. I have almost crashed my car driving around looking at open spaces.

The light is fading in the evening so I am thinking of getting up before work to fly or at lunch.

Spent 5k on stuff so far. I would go crazy over a $500 dollar washer but a $350 dollar gyro seems necessary and reasonable...

I have wondered if I can get my LHS to come up with a fake name on PayPal to hide costs.

I think I am in trouble.

Need help

IT's what I do.

It is a sickness...
7. If you hear the heli flying by while walking, you look up to look for the heli.
I do that even when I am driving as well. Dangerous.
