ZZZZZZZZZZZZZ come on dude!! You have yet to call me to fly(this year or last!!).

You don't get better at it if you don't fly.

Lets go any time this week. Im down. Got fuel and helis that work.

Sundays guys do fly at our field!!! They will help too.

Crash that 450 a few more times!!! Its the best trainer. IMO. Cheap to fix, easy to fix. Plus you have a shop that is STOCKED!!

You have to "fail" a few times to get the hang of it. Meaning you will crash, and maybe crash hard. But if you cant face that then you know its time to hang it up.

Practice practice practice!!!!

Remember we all won't fly like Rick. Just go out and have fun.

I'm with Jeff. I even sold my real boat. But hey some people even enjoy fishing, not that is REALLY boring (maybe more exciting with the compound bow). However I know a lot of people who sail and enjoy it. Even thinking of bringing more sailing merchandise aboard (pun intended). No many shops in CT carrying sailboat stuff. Dave, who knows if you have a local club, maybe hang out there a bit see if it really "floats your boat" if so have fun.

See ya

I'll admit I'm not a great pilot, but I can hover with the best of them.

Powerboating gets boring, if you're not going to a destination. If you are going to a destination, then you're just using the powerboat as transportation, and.. it gets boring. Everyday, bring the throttle up, and your speed in consistent. Sailing takes work. Sail everyday, and everyday is different. Maybe a few days are similar, but speed is different, heading is different.

I can't say if rc sailing would be exciting after a long time, but real sailing is.

Rhett..... I can't fly, but the Profi sure can.

I think dave might have gotten cought up in the "I got to have the best of the best to go fly"

example,
how many of us can push our models to their limits?
can i out fly a EVO .50 ( I can't)
can i out fly a Evo .30 ( probably not)
a raptor .90 or stratus? ( hell no)
do I need 8717's ( nope)
do i need a 12x (nope) but want one anyway

I have a EX-2 sitting on the shelf aprox 3,800 bucks in it
and havent flown it in 2 years.....( that was a dik move)

it is very easy to get in the mind of buy the best and sell the rest

by the way,
when i refer to out flying a .30 I mean flying super smoothly
in foreward, backward, and inverted all orentations.

In my book if you can do that then by all means move on to the next
heli.

It has happent to me before,
I freaked out got rid of all my stuff then got back into it.

Hats off to Jerry Sudimick !
that dude quit cold turkey ( lucky sob )

That's to bad Dave sorry to here it.

Was hoping to see you out at the field this year as we have lost a few pilots already due to moving away from this god for saking place.

But hey everyone needs a break once in awhile.

Give Erwin a shout I think he has those build a ship in a bottle kits.
That should be very relaxing for you.

When your ready to fly give a shout!

Have seen rc sail boat races in Essex Ct at sunset pond and in deep river. Just happen to drive by a couple of times and watched. Not a fast paced sport but very relaxing to watch. Don't give up on helis.

"I am contemplating putting helis on the back burner for awhile and give rc sailboats a try."

And you became a veteran here on RR just trying to figure helicopters out?

Aaaaaaaarrrrrrrrrrrrrgh I smell a rat...he can probably do stationary backward flips while on a weed high!!!

So many years wasted on plankers...!!!!

Brilliant.

One can only wonder how you'll further hijack David's worthwhile thread with more of your critically-acclaimed, eloquently-expressed observations.
