My wife has been wanting to try flying, so I got her to try my MCPx. She liked it so much, she decided then and there that she wanted one (guess mine wasn't good enough) .

Anyway, we went to a fun-fly this past weekend and she bought a handful of raffle tickets. You guessed it, she won her own MCPx!

Anyway, after flying (or trying) for about 15 batteries, she is now hovering with an "ear-to-ear" smile. Looks like this hobby is about to get a bit more interesting!

Guess it's time to get that "family" AMA and have her join our club officially! The guys have already given her a name so I'll have to get her set up here on RR with it.

The only thing left to do is find a pink canopy for hers .

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

Thats awesome man.. just awesome to sharry a hobby with your partner, too cool in my book..

Yeahh.. it'll be more expensive, but yall got jobs right.. ? :P

I find myself looking for potentials to the hobby constantly (just friends i fly for that maybe want to learn) Most people use the same words though "thats pretty dang cool" then its over lol except for a friend of mine who did r/c cars in his youngin days and I think i gave him the bug after he bought a 3 ch and i let him fly my mcx (in a BIG room LOL) and i think hes hooked which is great, i have someone to finally fly with! Instead of hearing, "you bought another damn helicopter? Jesus when is this going to end??" My response of course, "Never."

BTW I wanted to thank all of you on here for introducing me to the AMA, found 3 local fields less than 10-20 miles from my house and believe ill be showing up this weekend to watch

Thanks guys...

Actually, getting to the field has never been a problem. She has always enjoyed going out to our field, and actually helps with the field maintenance. It's only recently where she decided to try this for herself. It looks like the bug has bitten hard too .

In her own words, "yeah, this is addicting, isn't it?"

If it ain't broke, go fly some more!

Your a lucky guy....I'd love for my wife to get involved and try flying.
The family that "Fly's together" "Stay's together".

Now's the time for you to buy a new 700

Very cool. The two of everything idea will probably work for now, until she finds something she likes better/bigger than yours.
