Unfortunately Tim The H.E.L.I. field is no more. I was there 2 weekends past and it is all overgrown. They can't get enough members. Guys are flying at other clubs. I remember flying with you and Kevin,Phil, Stanley O, Gary, and David. I even came to your workplace in Farmingdale and we flew at the old Republic plant. You sold me a set of burp blades. Boy have times changed.

I'm too young to have been involved with helis back then, but it was pretty neat to see what the hobby was like back in 1982.

I did not realize that helis were even capable of any type of aerobatic flight, let alone inverted flight. Seems like aerobatics would be a mess with all you had to deal with with wooden blades, mechanical mixing, and the lack of HH gyros (if you had a gyro at all) and fickle engines. Any one who could fly helis back then must have been rc gods.

Keep the video and photos coming I'm really enjoying this thread

I remember drooling over these helicopters back in the days!
I would buy many magazines and just drool over these helicopters, wondering where I can come up with the money to buy these machines. Those days were the good happy days!

Thank you for starting this thread! Starting at the basic was the most challenging and rewarding for me.

I would like to thank everyone for sharing on this thread. I am 54 years old now and RC helicopters of been a part of my life since I was a young child because if my dad. As many of you know I left this hobby for about 16 years and have come back to it. The passion for building and flying has been reignited. Now that I am just a hobbyist I am truly enjoying not only building but flying all over again as if it was the beginning for me.

Myself, like Robert, got the love of RC from my Dad. Photo was taken in 1963, I was 6.

I have alot of my Dads stuff, Helibaby, Revolution, Honker Bipe, Kraft Radios, One of the First Sherline Lathes and a Ton of old Engines. Only wish I had the Radio. I still remember the Flying Field. My Mom had to sell most of his stuff to help pay medical bills.
