Well imagine me sitting in front of the tv watching the same boring news about petrol price increase, european economic crisis, etc when suddently they pass a story about the portuguese F3C nats. I almost fell of my chair since NEVER EVER anybody gave a rats about this hobby in my country and now they are passing a piece during prime time

Anyway, while I was laugthing my a** off (they were interviewing some friends of mine... too bad, I should have competed this year... could have made my 10 seconds of fame), they also passed a short clip of a heli flight (curiously it was 3D and not a competition flight) anyway... what matters is that 10 million folks that probably never saw a RC Helicopter in their life, suddently were presented with some simple 3D performed by a... VIBE 50

Not a 600N, Not a Raptor but a JR VIBE 50 is now the image most kids have in their mind tonight

Isn't life great?

I like their radios, futaba sucks.

Theres an RC jet show that gets on the news every so often around here but nothing about helis. I guess thats because they aren't to many heli shows in michigan.

will wash your heli for a quarter

I love JR Radios! The MX/MC 22 is my favourite. Futaba, Spektrum and JR, they all make very good radios...

I have often wondered how many people out there do not know about this hobby.

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

When ever I tell someone I fly model helicopters they think of the Toys R US variety. I usually make it a point to not even mention it.

with all of the other crazy stuff going on out there, I'm surprised RC heli's haven't become video'd more often. Time to call fox

Most people have absolutely no idea how difficult it is, piloting a model helicopter
