Low Down And Dirty
Well maybe not the dirty part. But stay low to the ground using training gear, while learning to hover etc...

Start with a bigger and better heli in the 400 class. Fly it until I destroyed it or learned to fly.

Would never have given up hookers and blow, I think that was cheaper!

...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

Skip the 450, pass on the used heli "deals", buy only top of the line electronics, spend a lot more time on inverted orientations earlier.

Back in 1984 (now that's a long time ago!), I would find someone to teach me.

Then bought a gyro! (we had mechanical ones)

Learned to fly on a GMP Criket 30...now that's old!

You know what I would have done? Back in 1984 when I was asking around about the GMP Cricket 30, I would not have listened to those naysayers who said "RC helicopters are too hard to fly". I would have just bought one.Avant RC
