welcome to the forum. Now you need to show your friends at school your nice toy and see if they join the hobby.

Man, I miss the eighties.

Use his helis as a reward system. He gets passing grades, he gets to fly. He gets all As and Bs, buy him a gallon of fuel. He makes the A honor roll, buy him bling. He gets a failing grade, take away some bling. Once he's out of bling, take various parts off the heli. lol.

I which your their software is not auto corrective. Some software, like "Websense" for example let pass the domain name he does not know (are uncategorized) and send them to the company to be categorized by them (probably by hand!).

After a too short while, the server gets an update of the domain name categorization and bingo, your name now falls into a blocked category you're blocked!

if it's the case of your school, Enjoy it while it last!

I spent wayy too much time building and flying when I was at school.

Moral of the story is (and I speak for myself), get a job in RC!

not to give you school kids any ammo for "fighting the power" but you can usually use a proxy server to get around pesky IT departments.

Check out kortaz.com, has a list of proxy servers that let you enter the name of the site you want to view and then the browser opens it for you without you having to actually type the address in your browser. There's a bunch of them out there so you can usually find one that hasn't been blocked.

Do study though, or you will regret it later. Desk jobs are a lot more cushy than construction/service/labor intensive industries.

mini miles is grounded! he's hittin the books. and on friday when i check his grades on his school's website, if he has no F's... then I'll let him spool it up and fly on Sat.

I think my strategy is working. he just showed me some A's and B's from school this week.

Hey lv2fly15,

Do the math. More education = more money to buy heli's.

What you do not want to do is put yourself in the position where you are behind in your studies so you loose sleep staying up late for a test...
The only thing you will prove is Einsteins formula "MC2'd" which as anyone knows means "Morning Coffee x 2 cups".

Good luck

Hi lv2fly15,

It's great to see that you have an interest in RC Helis. 30 years ago, when I was your age, I was flying pattern aerobatic fixed wings with my dad. Those are some great memories.

Now, 30 years later, I'm just getting started in helis. It's a great hobby.

Stick with your studies and your hobby. But most importantly get focused on a career that will help you pay for this hobby. It's EXPENSIVE.

BTW, you won't believe how nice the bigger stuff is to fly. You're going to love it...

Keep 'em flying.

Please, please, do yourself a real favor and keep with school. The more you have the better job you will have and the more Heli you can afford.

I fell back on experience rather than schooling and it has majorly backfired on me.

I was laid off after 16 years and find that I can't find anything comparable to what I had.

Imagine being 44 years old and told, "Sorry I recognize your 20 years experience but this job requires a Batchelor's period. With zero experience. Hey , I can work at Appleby's.

I tell my kids, Get all the schooling you can afford and some you can't.
