What type of flying do you do ?
I admire the serious skill of a good 3D pilot ...the time they invested ,EXTREME dedication and passion for the sport..no to mention money spent on repair parts to get to that point !!

I am curious , how many of us are sport pilots / fly more like a real heli ??

R/C is like the mob ..once your in , your NOT gettin out !

I appreciate what it takes to fly 3D, but I prefer big air for myself. I go for big & graceful!

Just flying tickles my bones.

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

I can't afford to fly hard 3D. I appreciate what they are doing. I only hope that they maintain their helicopters and don't scrimp on parts.

Some of us will never be able to fly the hottest machines. I enjoy what I can afford to do. I sure have fun staying within my limits.

One day I know, I just know I'll be able to do a perfect flat, even controlled figure of 8.... one day...

Inverted IS more fun!

I know how hard it is fort hard 3d. I just don't try to get to that point. I love big sky flying fast and graceful worth a mix of light 3d mixed in. It also keeps my goblin in one piece

It not only has to fly like the real thing, it has to look like the real thing too.

3D is boring, you seen one top pilot do his thing, you seen them all

3d for me I love the rush and rattling my nerves. And the countless hours days months learning a maneuvers. Pushing myself to the limit. NOW I HATE the MONEY INVESTMENT that comes with that. If your not crashing your not learning. Honastly ANY type of flying you do comes down to not losing ORIENTATION no matter what style you do its the same issue its just the amount of you have to figure it out in the air if you lose it. I love all flying not one style is better in my eyes helis are just freaking awsome.

I do aerobatic, inverted, anything except for banging the sticks and then banging my head for crashing.

I have seen allot of pilots 3d themselves out of the hobby because it was too expensive for them..

spending time, paying attention

Hopefully inverted soon

Right now I'm sport flying with basic aerobatics like loops, rolls, stall turns, etc. Practicing inverted on the sim but not there yet for the real thing.

Not necessarily wanting to get to hard 3D, but I do have the objective of dominating the machine in every orientation.
