But,......... they are toys aren't they
---------------------------------------------------------------------

Flying RC helis is a hobby. Going to the gun range is fun and is a hobby. Doesnt mean its a toy, right? Both can seriously hurt/kill you.
Be safe!

Guns, motor cycles ,snow mobiles , air plaines real or model and helicopters real or model .The are all there to entertain us the all deserve a lot of respect . They are "toys"but should not be confused with legos please do a preflight be carful . The first T rex 600 flight I used to stand back 10 feet but the 600 spooled up spooled down steeped back 30 feet than flew they command respect treat them that way .Fly safely keep all your fingers and toes life will be good .

People stress them as not being toys so they dont feel like jerks flying them. When i go down to my garage to work on r/c, or my 500hp river sled, i tell my wife going to the garage to play. Just as a side note, remember lawn darts

I would rather be in a boat, with a drink on the rocks, then in the drink, with a boat on the rocks!

Some people can not classify them as TOYs because they can not have fun flying it. When you can't fly a heli it is easy to fear seeing it as a flying lawn mower.

let's not foget you can be among the best pilots and still end up with a flying lawn mower (((ELECTRONICS CAN FAIL WITHOUT WARNING))) turning your gentle toy into a death machine...

nitros are better than electrics, gassers are better than both, beastx microbeast is better than the vbar and JR radios are better than futaba, chevys are better than fords, trexs are better than raptors, flybarless is better than flybars.....and rc helis are toys.

It's all the same futile argument.

Gassers Rule, Nitros Drool, Electrics...uhhh...Joule?

I guess you want to use the word toy to describe a object which sole purpose is to ammuse or entertain you, attach the word "adult" to it.

A regular toy is harmless or relatively harmless. An "adult toy" if you must, can give you a legit obituary if something goes wrong OR you get carried away.
This is why you should never combine alcohol, drugs, or stupidity when using them, whether is a TRex500 or a Porche 911.

Don't just call it a toy to undermined the potential is has to kill you.

have fun, and BE SAFE

Small children (and occasionally) adults sometimes place toys in their mouths and they accidentally (some adults intentionally) swallow and choke and Some of them die, so call it what best serves you but just understand it's potential for injury...

Fiend! How dare you suggest such a thing! RR is a tightly-knit community of wise, understand people! We need argue about nothing, as we all have the wisdom to see eye-to-eye on disparate issues!

So is a national-match competition firearm: Both are designed for recreational use, and both will kill you dead if mistreated.

Your toy can kill you or someone!!!!!!
All things that run at high rotation speed or travel fast and have some weight, helicopter's, planes, motorcycles, cars, etc etc, are dangerous, even a small sailplane that flight only with the wind can cause a severe body damage or death, if they crash on you!!, these are not Toys... you are responsible of your actions!!!!!! i see a lot of people injured with our hobby .... So be carefull and fly safe...

Finally I have a Turbine heli.. :) Mobb Powercat !!

Don't be silly, that would hurt.

And it might break the toy helicopter.
