What a shame to see this site go down. It was such a help for me when I got into radio controlled model helicopters a few years back.
Now I am in a rest home, but even almost at the age of 88, I yearn to fly perhaps one last time. My problem is that the memory is failing so badly, that I have many, many problems in setting up a model helicopter.
What I m searching for is someone in either Sebring or Alliance, Ohio, to come to my place of residence, which is in a nice retirement home here in Sebring, Ohio, who would be able to do the setups on the copters I now have, which is a Align 500, a 230s smaller copter, and lastly a Copter S 450 Pro.
There is several hundred acres here to fly to ones heart content and I just would like to get one more round of flying, even if I end up not being able to do it.
About a week ago I did get my 230s into the air for a short time and then a hard landing and tail rotor breakage. And so it goes.

Sencerely, Jarl Plottner

There has to be someone out there with some time to help an older guy get back into the air. Maybe a group adopt him.

Good luck.

In the Beginners Corner section there is a thread called Mentor Program where many have volunteered to help and where I got the cut and paste above.

Hopefully one will respond to your call for help.

There is a "mentor" thread in the beginners section ( I think that is the right section ) where new people can find local pilots willing to show them the ropes. Pistol Pete went to that thread and PMed all the pilots willing to mentor in your area.

Haha, beat me by 2 seconds.
