Aaaaaargh... I just got into some basic 3D..just started enjoying it... most of the stuff I had bought hidden from my wife is now in the open...almost got things to a state where I am in my comfort zone.

Now my 10yrs old who till now has been flying his Avistar till now...wants to fly my Raptor 50...Kasama and all the goodies in it. I can see the begining of the end...

Me the never tiring and never complaining mechanic, always smelling of grease, oil and WD40...my son the never complaining pilot... me the provider..he the destroyer....soon he will outfly me.. like he does with the avistar....

I want to be 10 years old again..with me as my Dad. But, it gives me so much pleasure to see my kid fly better than me, everyone at the club stops flying to see a 10 year old rip the skies with an Avistar..so I think I will now start phasing myself out into my son's flying wants.. become a mechanic for the helicopter and also the credit card!!

At least I will still get to play with my precious tools which I have collected over the years...my electric screwdriver which I keep repairing with epoxy and fiberglass, get to smell a new helicopter...while he does the flying.

The worst will be when a new heli is built and he wants me to hover it first, before it is worthy of his highness to throw it around like a formula one driver!!

Why do we grow old???

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

We grow old so our children can torment us like we did to our parents. Currently when I fly on my sim on my laptop at the kitchen table, I get non-stop chants of "my turn" from my 3 and 5 year old. They 3 year old likes to take a cx2 fly it up real high, then scream "whooooaaaaaa" all they way to the ground as it crashes. My 5 year old is getting pretty good with it actually so this may be an interesting year if I decide to get a cx2 for her.

Pavan:

I can see proud papa oozing through every complaining sentence.
Congrats, not for your son doing better than you (that is given) but for him being interested in your hobby. One would expect all kids would be interested in daddy's hobby but that is not the case most of the time. You are truely blessed in that you will get to see your own son get to be an awesome pilot while he makes you deplete your wallet willingly. He will also slave drive you into being a mechanic with no pay.

bltice:

When your kids love sim flying, consider getting the Hirobo Quark with the foam blades. The only thing stopping me from getting one is the high price tag at the moment. It should fly more like a real heli than the CX2. If going CX2, don't get the new ones as used seem to go at a dirt cheap rate here.

GOD CREATED CHILDREN (AND IN THE PROCESS GRANDCHILDREN)

To those of us who have children and they want our toy helicopters....
here is something to make you chuckle.

Whenever your children are out of control, you can take comfort from the thought that even God's omnipotence did not extend to His own children.

After creating heaven and earth, God created Adam and Eve.

And the first thing he said was ' DON'T !'

'Don 't what ? '
Adam replied.

'Don't eat the forbidden fruit.' God said.

'Forbidden fruit ? We have forbidden fruit ?
Hey Eve..we have forbidden fruit ! '

' No Way ! '
'Yes way ! '

'Do NOT eat the fruit ! 'said God.

'Why ? '
'Because I am your Father and I said so ! ' God replied,
wondering why He hadn't stopped creation after making the elephants

A few minutes later, God saw His children having an apple break
and He was ticked ! 'Didn't I tell you not to eat the fruit ? '
God asked.

'Uh huh,'Adam replied.

'Then why did you ? ' said the Father.

'I don't know,' said Eve.
'She made me eat it! ' Adam said.

'Did not ! '
;Did too ! '
'DID NOT ! '

Having had it with the two of them, God's punishment was that Adam and Eve should have children of their own.
Thus the pattern was set and it has never changed.

If you have persistently and lovingly tried to give children wisdom and they haven't taken it, don't be hard on yourself.

If God had trouble raising children, what makes you think it would be
a piece of cake for you ?

THINGS TO THINK ABOUT !

1. You spend the first two years of their life teaching them to walk and talk. Then you spend the next sixteen telling them to sit down and shut up.

2. Grandchildren are God's reward for not killing your own children.

3. Mothers of teens now know why some animals eat their young.

4. Children seldom misquote you. In fact, they usually repeat word for word
what you shouldn't have said.
ADVICE FOR THE DAY:

Be nice to your kids. They will choose your nursing home one day

AND FINALLY:

IF YOU HAVE A LOT OF TENSION AND YOU GET A HEADACHE, DO WHAT IT SAYS ON THE ASPIRIN BOTTLE:

'TAKE TWO ASPIRIN' AND 'KEEP AWAY FROM CHILDREN'!!!!!

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

The hirobo quark is a nice little machine. But the price is just MAD.

Yup! It seems like a super safe heli to let your kid loose at a local park if he/she can handle the sim. But the price is.....

I feel your pain my 11 year old daughter keeps eyeing my t-rex. Exspecialy since I just got my swift. She tells me "you have a new heli so I can have your old one right". I keep telling her you need more time on the sim. lol One of these days thou I will have to give in and let her fly it. I can see it now first hover to 3d flips in less then a week. Kids learn so fast.

For now I will have to keep an eye on her sim time to see how well she does. Maybe my time with my t-rex is shorter then I think.

Yes I do think this is a good thing. I love doing things with my kids and when they like to do what I do its even better. My and my oldest have been playing with rc cars and trucks for about 3 years now. So it doesnt surprize me that she would want to follow me into flight. A day at the field is better with the family.

Just my two cents.

My son, at age 11, started getting into RC planes. At 13 he grew out of it. At 20, dad's still hooked (He got me into it) and he's looking at my heli's, which being in college he can't afford. So I'm trying to help him out, but man, this gets expensive trying to fund two peoples hobby. But I'll keep trying as long as he's willing to stay out of trouble, which in 20 years he's done pretty good at. At least better than his old man.

Well going though the post I have to say I laugh'd

I have a 10y/o son (Vinny) who now is some what slowly taking over my T-rex 450 and asked when I get good wich one if the big heli's is mine???

I teast him and say NONE but in the end I do really enjoy the time we spend in the back yard or at the field so when he's ready any one he wonts to fly I will let him he's picking it up way faster then me and I know he will out fly me some day soon I have a feeling its gonna be pricey

yes dear the hobby shop again

MY son came the the field every Sunday at 3 years old ..Started flying a park flyer

Then he needed more POWER

At the end of the day we as dads are just lucky to have them with us. HUG them often and have a great time ......

Most likely as they learn about Bouncy? things and cars. If you are over 30, most likely you will stay in the hobby. If they leave the hobby and come back as an adult, you two will have a life time of enjoyment together. Even if he lives far, you may be able to see him more often during fun-flies as compared to holidays only.

I just started my daughter training on XTR sim, she's doing great, if all continues as is, she could be flying my Trex 450 in 2 more months, and she is only 5 and a half years old!!

I would love to bring her with me, well she comes all the time, but now she has to learn to fly!!

Well..... I am driving from Leon, Mexico to San Antonio & Austin, Texas this Sunday and will buy him a Blade 400.

The guys just won two medals in school, came first in his class..so it seems I need to keep encouraging him.

He flies better than me even in the sim... so now I have decided to take on a new flying partner... this time financed 100% by me...

I will wait to reclaim my dues when he starts hanging out with the chicks!!!

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

i take him to the club with me and if im holding him he will move my head to show me flying helicopters, he also no's the difference between heli's and planes

but my 5 year old hasnt really got much interest in the heli's
