ODE TO JOJO AND LITTLEFLYER

ROGER THAT LITTLEFLYER,

THOSE FIVE MISERABLE SECONDS FOLLOWING A CRASH ARE THE WORST FOR ME..........I JUST STAND THERE SAYING TO MYSELF "WHY DID I DO THAT", AND KNOWING THAT MY HELI IS NOT FLYABLE FOR LIKE MAYBE COUPLE OF DAYS IS ENOUGH TO SEND ONE INTO DEEP DEPRESSION...........EACH HOUR IS CONSUMED BY A POWERFUL FORCE CALLING HOBBY WEBSITES PURCHASING WHATEVER IS NECESSARY (NEXT DAY DELIVERY) TO GET THAT LOVELY BIRD BACK IN OPERATION...........ONCE IT IS SITTING THERE LOOKING PRETTY AND RARIN TO GO AGAIN, I CAN GET SOME SLEEP..............I DREAM OF THAT NEW TREX 500 AND WONDERING HOW MUCH TO SPEND ON THAT ONE OF A KIND AIRBRUSHED CANOPY, WHAT KIND OF BLADES TO PUT ON HER, HOW BOUT THAT NEW JR 770 GYRO ON HER TAIL.............MAN, DOES IT GET ANY BETTER ? IT TRULY IS SOME KIND OF ADDICTION........THE SHRINKS SHOULD COME UP WITH A NAME FOR IT.........BLING, BLING, BLING, I FALL ASLEEP COUNTIN THE BLINGS.......

I hear you. When I havent had a crash in a long time, it feels good to get it out of the way.. I suppose it is the good feeling one gets when you handle stress well.(dumb thumbs)

It's the stupid crashes (wrong model syndrome, forgot to tighten something, electronics failure, etc etc..) that get me seing RED....

Hi,

My name is Tony. I used to play golf 4 times a month. A year ago, I got in this RC heli hobby. My wife and daughter told me that I have to pick one of the hobbies ( RC heli or golfing?) because I dont have time and money for both. I made my choice RC heli. Now I am happy with this choice. I own Trex 450 SE and 450 SE V2 and plan to get Trex 500.

Sometime I miss playing golf and I have to go to driving range to hit some balls but the end of the day I still love my helis more than golf clubs.

AM I AN HELIAHOLIC??????? YES I THINK I AM

Thanks for reading

I'm in the same boat as you Tony. I used to play golf religiously and now my weekends are spent flying/building/repairing or thinking about it. I just can't get enough. My addiction started with a Blade CP which balooned into 2 TRex 450SEs within a 3 month span. Then a Raptor 50SE, and then a Fury (rebuilt to a Stratus) within 6 months. By 1 year I had a Lepton, 2 TREx 600s in addition to the other helis mentioned. I'm sick but I don't care!

Joe,

Do you miss golfing? I still do once in a while. You grew much faster than I did. It is so unbelivable that you can get those many helis in 1 year. I guess you must be sicker than I am. LOL......

I started up with Honeybee FP and King then move to trex 450 XL and Trex 450 SE. Recently, I got SE v2 and Trex 600 CF kit then I changed my mind. I dont feel comfotable with T 600 because of the cost of batteries then I sold Trex 600 kit and wait for Trex 500. I can wait to get this T 500.

WOODY AND DOUG, I HEAR YOU LOUD AND CLEAR ON THE IMPULSE TO CRASH THAT LITTLE HELI........ITS SORT OF A SUBCONCIOUS THING.......I THINK IT'S BECAUSE THE REPAIR PROCEDURE BRINGS US CLOSER TO THE HELI AGAIN, AND WE WANT TO MAKE IT EVEN BETTER THAN IT WAS BEFORE.... RESURRECTING THE HELI HEALS US IN SOME WAY........NOW, BUT HOW'S THAT FOR DEEP THOUGHTS!!! YEP, I HAVE OCHD REAL BAD BUT ADMITTING IT AND COMING TO TERMS WITH THE ILLNESS KEEPS US FROM FALLING OFF THE DEEP EDGE. THIS FORUM IS OUR SAVING GRACE.........I WAS HOPING MY NEW TREX 500 WOULD BE THE LAST PIECE IN MY ALL ELECTRIC FLEET BUT THESE GASSERS ARE AWFULLY INTERESTING AND TWEAKING MY INTEREST.......I HAVE NEVER SEEN ONE FLY AND WILL FIGHT THE URGE TO DO SO.......I HAVE OCHD..I HAVE OCHD...I HAVE OCHD.....I WILL FIGHT IT TO THE LAST BLING.......................I JUST ORDERED PHOENIX SIMULATOR BUT THAT DOESN'T COUNT........

I take it all BACK !!! I was hovering my Quick EP8V2EX Custom (Well over a 1.3 Grand invested total) today, when my 6 year old son threw a snowball at me... The snoball narrowly missed, but my heli did not miss the side of the house - TOTAL DESTRUCTION - 3000RPM on the head, swinging 425mm MAH carbons.... Damn, it was the best heli I ever flew, and I have pushed sticks on many...

Oh well, I only said the "F" word once, .5 of a sec after impact (and T Cut)...

Time to CRY.....

Cheers Lads, and remember, Misery loves Company.....

Sorry Woody, I really feel your pain on that one, sounded like you had that heli set-up perfectly, was having a ZEN moment with said heli, then SNOWBALL(distraction)Damn! One time my 10 year old nephew tackeld me from behind while flying, almost lost the heli. I don't think the non-heli flying population even realizes how much concentration you need to fly one of these birds.

Wait till your favorite dog decides to be happy and bash your Tx from your hands while flying your heli! Scrambled to get the Tx and save the heli, the only damage was the Tx antenna and sand in the gimbals!

my little ones - god bless their little hearts, i've had to train both my boys(7and5yrs) NOT to talk to me when i am flying in the front yard, and to stay WAY behind me. They get all excited when Daddy goes out to fly his toy.
They don't mean it, it's just that when they see Daddy excited to fly they feed off of it.

My neighbor had the tendency to come over and start yapping away like
it was all good until i told him NOT to talk to me until i land. My REX flys damn solid- i can even let the sticks go if it's a clam day. But all it takes is a second of distraction and the ground comes up and grabs your heli.

I don't think someone can understand the level of concentration it takes to fly heli's unless they fly one themselves.

Don't yell at your little ones! If these toys are super cool to us
amagine how our little ones feel. I even let the 7yr old grab the sticks while i flew and to THIS DAY his still talks about fling the heli!!

A little more addiction for me......

I am up to 70 or so flights on my Trex V2 (nearly 270 including my Blade cp pro) and just did my first loop and roll with the Trex. Then I kept doing them. Now today for the first time I took my heli with me in my truck and pulled over at a local park and flew two more packs. Loops and rolls and tried a few back flips.

I never wanted to take it along and fly during work before. Also I just couldn't sleep last night. Kept thinking of the heli and the new tricks.

I never experienced any hobby that was so gripping!
Wondering if you guys had this rush after a new trick when you were starting out too.
