I can't believe it but it's time
I think I will be getting out of this hobby for a while. I just don't have that addiction anymore. Heli's are now just slipping away from my mind

The few times that I met Tony, the first thing I thought is: "His mind is definitely slipping" That didn't have anything to do with heli's though. Hahahahaha.... Don't sell everything off bud; just put it away for a while & see if the buzz comes back.

Ciao' for now,

Paul

Tony, I can definitely relate.

I've been selling stuff off because I don't have time any more and with Summer here, I have even less.

Try to hang onto at least something. You never know

If you do get out, you'll probably get back in at some point.

For me, I've judt go too many interests and not enough time for everything.

Take it easy

I've felt like that too. I wouldn't sell all of your stuff though. I've done that twice only to regret it and ended up buying everything all over again.

Same here. I have not flown anything except the XRB in more than a year and a half. I've started downsizing the fleet and started diversifying into planks (yet to be flown again) and 1/8 scale off road buggy and truggy. I have really enjoyed the 1/8s with their speed and durability, not to mention 2 great tracks at the club. Its great to not have to worry about spending $$$$ everytime you smack the ground.

I've been in that spot, in fact, I was there in the summer/fall of last year. I backed off, focused on my plane skills, and waited for the helis to call me back in. They did a month or so ago, and the fun is back. Keep your stuff, at the very least, keep your starting gear and tools, that way when you want to get back in, you've got them.Nick Crego

about 8 months ago I sold all my heli's and bought planks...
I did the same thing but only a couple months back....Started flying planks and I hate to say it but I find it MUCH more enjoyable than Helis. I can relax instead of stress on f#@king up a nice heli.
I am not a real patient person and got frustrated very quickly even with lots of sim time.
I had 3 stack ups(Boomstrikes) and each cost in excess of $100.00
Didnt take long to realize that a healthy stack up could be in the $500 range.
If I am going to toss that kind of cash away I'm buying items that will appreciate in value.

Not to mention my 19 yo is off to college next year......

But I will still stay and torment you
I really do enjoy some of the post's here. I wish I could get the same level of topics with my friends.

I will stick around as long as you tolerate me

I blame Patriot21 for my lack of desire to fly! Just kidding Dave. You moved, I sold the store and moved, Mike is busy and chasing tail! To think I haven't burned a gallon since November and last year the 3 of us went through 36 cases in 3 1/2 months!

I went through the same thing. I ended up downsizing from about a 1/2 dozen helis to just the swift now. Sold all my AP stuff as well. Now i build fast flying wings and try to crash into my buddies flying the same!

I think for me the real thril of helis was learning to fly and build them. once i had it figured out and could fly pretty decent, inverted hover ect ect it got boring to me.

I still visit the off topic site now and again to kill some time at work but thats about it.

I think i have flown my swift maybe once or twice in the last 6 months it just sits on the shelf!!!

I prefer hobbies like wakeboarding where i can at least do something physical and lay in the sun!!

Several years ago, I got so frustrated with helis, crashing them and the expense of putting them back together, that I just stopped flying them all together and started flying 3D electric planks. The helis sat for about a year. Last year, I got bit by the heli bug so hard that I bought 3 new helis and haven't picked up a plank in a over a year. It gets in your blood. There is an irresistable urge to fly R/C toys tucked deeply in your psyche. Like I said... You'll be back!

You'll be back. R/C helis take a lot of time and $. The bad thing is that R/C is a hobby. There are too many things that are "supposed" to be more important. Not only that, there are too many other interests that could come up. Cars, women, family, kids, you name it. You should hit the electric helis since you're working so much now. No tweaking and tuning. Just charge and fly. I'm taking advantage of the free time I have to fly anything I can right now cause I know soon that I will have to take on more important priorities which will limit my flying.

Good luck man,

Tom
