I am a beginner looking for someone near downtown O'side who would care to sit down over an ale or two for discussion regarding purchase, setup, flight etc of an electric helicopter. So many choices, so many ways to crash. I am leaning towards an EF Cypher and an Airtronics RDS8000. Have been flying the RC Helicopter Simulator on a mac for a month. If you are interested in helping someone new to the sport send me a message. If you want to have fun watching me crash my heli send me a message.
So you have no illusions, I am 50 years old, been a professional juggler for most of my life, and now run a photography business. ( hmmm, now why would I want to fly rc helicopters?).
Thanks
Jon

there's a good group in temecula...probably a tad closer than the OC. Also welcome to join us in Moreno Valley - we even have one among who can program the RDS 8000! Seriously, if you have the opportunity to get a more popular radio like a DX 7, it would be highly recommended. Cypher is okay, but check out Align 450SE - tough to beat for $200, and a whole lot easier to repair. Don't mean to hijack the thread but one of the first frustrations you are headed into is a bunch of guys who can't help you with the set up because they don't know the radio. From one fifty something to another - it's fun!!

These guys are right by you.
