That's an awful lot of pilots who are wiling to travel from points all over the world to be a part of the heli craze. It's doable, it not easy or inexpensive to learn, I'm 66 years old and would be considered by many to old to take on the heli experience, but I'd been flying about two years now and can fly a little inverted (on my other heli's) or a roll now and then.

I appreciate the offer. I would love to be able to fly a cp heli but it's doubtful that's going to happen. In the meantime It's put on a shelf for now. Not sure what it needs at the moment and not in a hurry to figure it out. Aside from the incident I described above, it is in great shape with 2 sets of new blades. Anyone interested?
