for those who want to know

My name is Lee. I am not affililated with bananahobby at all. I am not even what I would consider a valued custormer. I bought one of there cheapest helicopters. I wrote "a poor man's story". They (Pete) helped me get my copter in the air. It wasn't even there fault it wouldn't fly. Now I have crashed it trying to do a video that it shouldn't have been able to do. And Pete heard of it. He loves the hobby sooo much, that he is sending me what I need to get back in the air. Now some of you think there customer support sucks. I say to you, I understand your frustration. But, from my experience, there is no company I know of, that would go out of there way like they have just to have a fellow hobbyist get back in the air. If you know how to pm someone, and have patience, this is the best company that is on the internet. Who else would have gone to this much trouble? And you can not say to me that they are looking for the quick buck. Cause they no I am no asset at all. I am however, a lifetime customer. No one else comes close to this kind of service. Period. And Taylor is helping all she can. So quit crying. Just pm Pete and have patience. He is the best, and wants to see us all enjoy the hobby that we all seem to love. Pooorer than you, Lee

If any of you know me, I wrote "the poor mans story" on the multi rotors heli forum. Looks like I have to sell my dobro, mandolin, and banjo. If anyone is interested read the thread. Trying to donate to the needy. http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=950113

Lee I did read your story, and I am glad you got helped out so well. This hobby is like my parents say "fairly expensive", but since my mum and sister buying so many shoes and clothes, why not me spending my money for this awesome hobby?

I am a student myself with a Job Interview tomorrow,so I hope I get the job to invest more money into this hobby. And I tell you that...I will give Banana Hobby a try, the only very thing that holds me back is their international shipping to my country is fairly expensive.

However in these difficult times we all experience, it is good that allthough you might be a bit low on money to give this hobby a try, and I am glad you did that step.

Like me and others, there is nothing better to save up money for an airplane/helicopter that once it flies it pays it off so well that you are happy every single time you take it out to fly.This is for me like Adrenaline that pumps once I do my first 5 Xtreme minutes of flying the plane with very battery extensive manovers (never get that word right).


Good on you, Lee!
