Neck strap explanation
I had been flying her with a buddy box. A combination of her doing so good and our little girl (seen in my gallery) not wanting to cooperate prevented me from staying on the buddy box. So I gave her my radio and walked away... I did not tell her (but I should have) to use the neck strap.... Her radio has no neck strap but she is now looking for a "girlish" strap.... Anyone who knows where she can find one please feel free to let us know...

Congrads,

It's a plus when you better-half takes up the same hobby. Makes everything work out just right. . .

No more sneaking in parts or heli's that "she dosen't know about.

BTW: is she planning on joing the RR?

It's a plus to have more lady heli flyers around .


Nas,

Yes it is definitely better when the other half joins in the fun. Howerver, parts will still have to be snuck in due to her being a tight wad... BTW she is watching this being typed so I guess I am in trouble. The funnuest thing is the trueth in what you said. I have been asked more than once "when did you get that" when she say something for the first time and my typical response has always been " oh a while back"...

Here is my wife Heather.. I will let her answer the other questions while I figure out how to get out of the dog house for the parts statement...

Hello I am Heather - As he made mention earlier, the boss (our little girl Kaeli) is going to dictate how much time I have to devote to the hobby. I really enjoy flying heli's, very hard and challenging. I will probably not join RR at this time, maybe just communicate through my husbands nick (fliggyg). Thanks for the support....

Congrats Heather and your hubby is one lucky guy to have a
flying partner. Can't wait to see a hot pink raptor and
fuscia neck strap, maybe a Gucci one.

Congrats on getting your wife to fly. That is great. The only downside I see now is that she will now what what this really costs.

I've heard some of the ladies going to a Music store and getting a neck strap made for instruments. Might be something to try.

If Gucci made neck straps, my wife would be lining up to fly!

You are one lucky fellow! After almost a year and a half, I FINALLY got my better half asking questions (other than how much???)about the hobby. Good questions too; like "well, if the gassers are so much better on fuel, how much would it cost to get you one?" I was also telling her how my friend/mentor/instructor was putting his Fury through it's paces and her question was "how long before you can do that?"
I'm making progress!

This is for Heather, Congradulations on joining in on the fun. It's alot of hard work, but to be able to have the same interests as your husband and go flying together is so much fun. There will be times that you might get a little discouraged, but don't give up. I just made it into forward flight not that long ago, but what a rush. You also have a beautiful family to take care of, so good luck, and keep us posted on your progress. Lori Purring like a kitty, but flying with the Tigers!!! Yeah Baby! Lori

Thanks for the support!!!!!!! This is Heather
Thank you all for your support and encouraging words. I have a long way to go and it is extremely intimidating.Congratulations on your forward flight VT Fly Girl!!! I Hope to do more than just hover sometime in the next century

To all the men that are wanting to get their significant others involved in the hobby, good luck and be patient. My biggest deterent was not wanting to fly in front of other people, so I did the flight simulator and some actual hovering in our backyard. (Even though my husband encouraged me to go to the field). I still prefer to be off to myself while hovering. Like I said it is very intimidating especially as a beginner and a female. I have had only encouragement and support from my husband's fellow flyers at our local field which makes it alot more comfortable to go to the field...

I use my old saxophone neckstrap for my transmitter, works a dream. Its also wider than the average transmitter neckstrap so it doesn't dig in like some of them.* Damaged, Destroyed and Disintegrated - sounds like 3D to me *

Hi Heather, I wanted to tell you that even if it takes you longer then you thought to do more then hover, I know some guys that can't even do that. So your heading in the right direction. As for a strap, I don't use one because my transmitter tends to fall forwards when I use one, so instead I use a tray. I find it more comfortable, and I feel like I have more control. Maybe someone has one that you could try before you spend the money to see if you might prefer that rather then the strap. Ciao! LoriPurring like a kitty, but flying with the Tigers!!! Yeah Baby!
