Hi there, I just make some history and I remember how I started in this passion, with a little tinny foam helis, in less than a year and half I get a Gasser and scale helis, I can´t stop it!! I always think in helis and wait for the weekend to fly them with my friends, I am aiming to turbine....need a lot of money, but it worth it.It is very addictive and hopping never quit....like Amy Winehouse..They’re tryin to make me go to rehab, I said no, no, no

Regards,
Gustavo

Think that's bad, I fly during the week and charge lipos at work. It's a sickness man.

I can't wait for week-ends to fly with friends...often see myself leave the office at lunch time or at 3:00 pm to go fly, it's the only thing I could think about.

Let's see, I have a building just for helis:even has airconditioning and heating. Always have one or two ready to fly at a moments notice. It really must be a sickness.

Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

Now that's funny. Never thought I'd see an Amy Winehouse reference on RR.

I was Spektrum when Spektrum wasn't cool

I sold my "studio" to make room for my helis.

That was almost a year ago. Glad I did.

Now I hang out on RR and fly my sim at night.

Hopeless!

Well at least in USA and Europe you have seasons so the weather don't let you fly your birds...In Colombia we don't have seasons so is the same temp(23C) all the year!! So that means you can fly...ALL THE YEAR..It is good to have 2 hidden credit cards from my girlfriend jejeje!!

I fly nights aswell. Get a night bird and your ediction is sorted.

Live life on the edge. Stand next to me when I am flying

My wife hates my heli' hobby. I honestly think she'd find me having an affair with the babe next door preferable to me buying more helis. Hmm, there's an idea for those wet windy days when I can't fly!

I like to spend everyday as though it were my last; in bed drifting in and out of consciousness!
