Oh no, there is absolutely nothing wrong with align. I just want something different to look at. Some different engineering designs with different flight characteristics. I'm all about variety, hell, I AM divorced for a REASON!

That is the main reason I have never been married.

What.....

My wife bought me my first helicopter so, I'd get back into the hobby..... what a gal!

Just have to find the right one however; it took me 42 years!

Alan Szabo's videos is what got me hooked in helis. At that time he was
one of the few pilots that was precise and in control. That video is still one of favorites.

I was at a friends house and saw a small 2 channel heli that he had. I bought a small 3 channel heli and was hooked. I went to an MSR, bought the 120 sr, a blade SR, and now a blade 400. All the electronics on the 400 are changed and it now flies pretty good. I look forward to the day I can stand in the back yard and do tic-tocs....lol. My wife gets very annoyed sometimes when she wants to do something outside and all I can think about is " I wish I had the heli with me so I could fly". She is getting more tollerant of my heli addiction.

simages you got a rare one. My ex was fine until we had my son. Now she is an overprotective freak. Anyway what really hooked me on these helis is the ability to hover inverted. When I seen one do it on YT I about freaked. I had to get one and figure out how they did it. I was watching some random video of a heli flying around in a nice circuit and all of a sudden it did a clean axial roll. I had to rewind and re-watch this over and over cause I couldn't figure out how it did it so clean without altitude loss. I had no idea what collective pitch meant. I barely knew how full scale helis worked with the variable pitch. I have definately learned a great deal about the physics of flight of a helicopter and the mechanics as well.
