Left handed, dislexic, and slightly retarded. That's what all my freinds say you have to be to fly one of these things.

Helicopter Flight Engineer
USAF MH-53J/M PaveLow Flight Engineer. I've been at it for a little over 10 years now. It's amazing to be able to fly for a living. I get paid to ride in them, but I have to pay someone to fly the RC ones from the outside???? Completely different world though. Check out my Homepage to see a whole section on what I do.

I'm just a guy who really enjoys flying, building and talking about RC helis....

My day job is necessary to pay for my hobbies and the hanger to hold me and all my stuff... I sell/consult/train computer graphics systems to the printing and publishing industry.

I am an Electrical Engineer for a Bio-Medical company which manufactures instruments for Cardiac tests, Prostate tests, Thyroid tests, etc., but I am leaning towards expanding the online Hobby Shop to a storefront, and doing the Hobby thing full time.

Hey Ray!
Police Officer! Heh! I knew that already!

I'm not sure what I do exactly, but most of the time I get paid for it!

I dabble in computers and telcom technology.

My former official title at work is: Communications Technician. They lately changed that title to "Field Operations Technician."

Mainly, I'm supposed to fix and maintain stuff.

Network Technician/Avionics Technician. Love working with the hands. Helicopters are by far the best! Real or model. Keep my heli in the back of the car where ever I go. Small field around I pop her out. Absolutely love it.

Tech nut
I am a millionaire that does nothing but build and fly helis. That would be nice huh? Actually I think most would get bored. It is a hobby and that is what makes it fun.

Actually I oversee engine maintenance on C-130 aircraft and spend my free time chipping away at a Professional Aeronautics degree through Embry Riddle. I think with the way the aviation industry is headed and the fact that I don't like getting dirty anymore an IT degree looks like a better option to fund future Heli projects.

Not sure...
What do I do? I think I am among a minority... I am not a tech type computer/software/mechanical. I am a CPA who counts money for development projects in the Residential buisiness unit of a regional Commercial Real Estate company. Its very strange to talk casually of millions upon millions of $$ and say things like "its only $25K".

Day to day, if I am not busy, I have to really try to stay away from the internet that is just a click away and drool over heli crap.

I am considering getting either a Private certificate but am having trouble convincing myself (and the wife) that it is worth the large amount of $$ to gain the flight time and instruction. Taking my first demo flight in a 172 this afternoon. My other option is to build and OWN an ultralight aircraft (Either a RANS, Challenger, CGS Hawk or Flight Star - other internet draws) - tomorrow morning going to fly in a Flight Star.

I have also gotten involved in historical vehicles of the military type and own and have completely restored a 1942 Ford GPW (jeep). I also have a few vintage infantry weapons from the same era. That takes up some time and $$ too and If I pursue the Pilot/Airplane thing, I am really starting to wonder if something (Heli-RC in general, jeep, computer, guns) will have to go up for sale. Say it isn't so. Maybe I just need to make more money

Later

Wow!
What an incredible collection of talented people. This IS a great hobby. I am 48 and probably one of the older folks on this forum. I have degrees in electrical engineering and one in business. I am a high tech entrepreneur. I start tech companies, put the team together, run them, hopefully make them successful and then, sell them. I currently run an enterprise software company in Northern CA - heart of silicon valley. Our software automates RFQ processing for complex custom products, for example, Printed Circuit Boards.

I am an electronic gadget freak and constantly experimenting with new technologies.

I write system software for an oil service company. So I am a computer guy.......
I did R/C cars before the R/C helis, but since I've started flying there is no way to go back to 2D asphalt scooters.....

Dare I say it? I'm a Dentist. I just returned to school to specialize, so I'm a student too. I was always facinated by flight and want to be a pilot in the USAF but a blown out knee in college ended that idea. RC is the next best thing, until I can afford my private liscense. I did make into the Air Force eventially as a Dentist.
