I was wondering if there is any good woman helicopter pilots around? Actually I want to see women are flying. Do you know any of them or we're alone us guys?

We have about 170 members on our club and there are only two women flying.
They are both flying heli but they don’t fly very well. (just hovering a bit for several years now)

We have only one at our club as far as i know. May be wrong tho. She flies quite well loves U-can-Do's even tho she flies planks she has potential to become a good heli pilot i put on the octopod( its what i call the rotopod hehe) on my venture and hooked her up to the buddy box and an about two or three flights she could almost hold a steady hover!! So hopefully i've got her interested in gettin one

PS. By the way New member here *waves* nice place you all have here.

Gravity?? what gravity

The reason
The reason I posted this topic is that although I'm not married now I might be in the future. And some of the guys I know from the flying field and the club in Chicago have hard time to keep their marriage healthy. Because we make a lot of mess in our homes and many women can't stand with that. If we can have more women flying with us that'll be easy for us guys to be understood by women.

Take of is optional, landing is mandatory.. :

HawkNoob,not broke just fanatical lol
Dysfunctional,well will ask our son lol
One half of the dining room has a special place especially for the helis

Just guess who keeps our feet on the ground

This is an addictive sport,but it can be enjoyed by both sexes if you just let your other half know its ok for her to show an interest.
If she doesnt want to know, then you have my sympathies.Some women cant see the fasination and feel they have to compete for your affection and attention,odd but true
We are not all like that,i am living proof

I've tried and tried.

My girlfriend showed a spark of interest here and there.

Like, I manage to sit her down and practice on the simulator, she practiced for a long time but I guess that's just because she thought the "game" was fun.

Then I convinced her to try it on the real thing. But she hardly seem interested. She manage to hover a little but never Really hovered.

All this happened in one day, and I guess she's got the potential. Too bad she's not really interested.


Oh yeah, she is really interested in playing around with her Pink rc truck.
But that's only because it pink. haha.

... if you guys ever see a pink helicopter with hellokitty stickers doing 3D. it'd be my girlfriend. haha. That would be sweet^^.

When I feel like having a new heli I just go and buy one and tell the other half its hers but ill have to test fly it for her every week. The only problem is when I sell the heli to raise funds for another , she wants the money from the sale. Her last request was she wanted the last heli yellow with pink spots.
