It was certainly not the brand that you ran into at your local hobby shop was it? I think I was recruited by someone from the Eflite Forum (yes, there used to be an Eflite Forum) to save me from the problems with my Blade CP I think it was either tutlar-rc or tryan or fender, but it could have been Doug. I can't remember. Can you imagine that? Taking someone from the frying pan to the fire! And I followed like a lamb to slaughter It's funny now but- Oh those purple metal parts that never fit, the head that would never track.... and on and on and on and on. So, how the heck did you get here?

Like a lot of folks I could not afford this hobby when I started. In fact I was originally going wait a year or so. But friend at work told me about his Blade CP Pro, a complete package for $200.

Two months later, I was ready to quit the hobby or move up. At the time Fender and Tryan had just got their bare bones HBK2 airframes and were all over the "new and emerging" forum. $65 for the airframe and I was able to use some electronics from the Blade.

After the Blade CP, the HBK2 was solid, stable and easy to hover. The early progression that came right after getting the HBK2 is what propelled me to keep at it for as long as I did. It was the right model at the right time. But I should have moved on sooner than I did.
