Why in the world would anyone want more than a couple rc helicopters if they can't fly nose-in and fast forward at least.
Why does it matter to you? It's really none of your business and doesn't affect you in the least.

People like to build, people like helicopters, and there is no reason they should limit what they want based on their flying skills. And, perhaps they'll fine one they like, it will allow them to progress in their skills, opening up the opportunity to fly all those others they already own.

I can only fly one at a time, why do I want more than one heli?

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

Since I started playing with quads, there is no "nose in" problem.

All I meant was it seems like a waste of money, to have more than you can actually fly. I'd rather invest in parts if able to, and learn to actually fly the dang thing. Instead of seeing how much dust they can collect. It's a slap in the face to me and others, to Brag about the dozen or more they have when they can't even fly the first damn one. It's about showing off is all it's about to own so many fully blinged out birds. I can't stand a show off, who knows it all, but can't fly a lick, except on a sim their a pro.

Get over it, your being jealous is showing.

Mine are not blinged but I have more than I can get on my multiple benches.

"HOBBY" why get uptight about what others do with their hobby . As far as know it alls I know a few that can fly well but don't know much about what their flying just it flys the way they want . This hobby is my drugs,drinks,strip clubs,etc. and all the other crap people do to stay busy .Bragging here is what we do , I don't look at it that way I think of it as just posting what we do in the hobby just like people do on Facebook or my space etc

I stole it ,flew it and gave it back ;)

I get you, you go to the field and the next guy has the latest and greatest Heli and just sits around and does angry hovering and climb outs and this bugs you. Well instead of trying to figure him out. Why not just ask hey have you tried this or that?

I have a few newbies at my field and I prefer to assist than critique them. It's what the hobby is all about, helping each other out.
Now if they're happy flying they way they do, just let it go. I am sure that pilot has a grin from ear to ear doing is high powered angry hovering.

Well I fly alone, at home, or go down the road on my scooter with my gear in my backpack, and fly at a farmers soybean field, or corfield. I wish I had someone local that needed help, I'd be happy & proud to teach others what I know. I'm not a street bum, and I'm not even middle class, I just do the best I can with what the good lord provides. It just erks me to see others with all that stuff, and can't use it the way it was meant to be used.
I guess building is fun for others, and tail in is better than no Tail.
I'd have better gear, and maybe a desant bird, or two if I was able. My back is shot due to a bad wreck a few years back, and I can't get any disability, done tried. I Just live off the random and sometime far between odd jobs. Maybe I need to get a RC car.
Took me two years to get what I have now, and over a year to get the 450 flying. I get to fly maybe once or twice a month if I'm lucky.

My Equipment is old school, But I'm lucky to have it.
My JR XP6102 I got for $55.00 but it was burt out. I had to fix it.
The Futaba 8U Had broken switchs, which I bought from tower and replaced myself. Got the TX also for $55.00

1.Clone 450, with EXI servos, Gy48v, Alpha 400, Proton ESC.
2-1/2 blade cp's.
JR XP6102 with 1 RX.
Futaba 8U with 2 RX's, but nothing to use it for.
Thunder ACE charger.
And half a dozen blue lipos, including e-flite 800mahs for the blades.
Real Flight G3.

I really love blade cp's, for my little side field. Notice my landlords samw mill in the background. I crahed the 450 and the blade into the same mill last week. Broke the 450 tail book plum off, broke a mail blade, a tail blade, bent main & tail shaft, featureing shaft, went right between tow steel beams. The Blade faired much better.

I can't figure out why you care so much about him. You try to make him look bad cause he collects helis? Really, you are making fun of him for having a bunch of helis, ON A HELI FORUM!!! You have only made everyone here know how immature and jealous you are of him. If you spent half the energy you waste on him and put it into your own flying you could be twice the pilot you are now. And no I did not look at your videos so I have no idea how good or bad you are. I really don't care. All I am saying is you do you and let him do him. I sure wish I had a dozen helis.

These are only my thoughts, I spent my last two cents on parts!
