When your first autos were done with a 30 size nitro, with a flybar and foam blades.....and it survived!

To hover is divine, the alternative is rather PLANE.

I still remember the days at the school ball diamond with my dad and that Cox P-40. Spent hours trying to get that engine to run and less than a minute trying to fly that plane!
Yes, easily entertained and learned persistent!
HEY! Maybe we should have the youngsters learn by trying this!

When you remember assembling a 3 channel, single stick radio from a Heath Kit.

Those little circuit boards in the Kraft KPS 15 servos that came with it were a bugger to solder correctly without frying the parts.

... if you practiced hovering on a Dave Brown simulator and remember the $$$$ value totals it would display after each crash. $734 here, $381 there, etc. after each crash.

Enjoy things that money can buy IF you don't lose the things money can't buy.

... if you sought help from fellow modellers in a heli chat room every wednesday night...

... that little room in the local hobby shop with metal folding chairs, a perculator coffee maker and real creamer.

Not an online chat

... if you ever used glue to hold you wood framed heli together.

... if you used a Z-bend tool to build your heli linkages.
