In the beginning
This will be my first blog entry, even though I have been flying for a few months now. This post will discuss some of how I got into the hobby.
It happened when I was looking on HobbyTron for an airsoft gun gift to give my son for his birthday. While perusing the site I came across their r/c helicopters and a small seed was planted. After ordering the gift, I revisited the site and that seed grew into a small plant. I bought what I thought was a decent copter, and one I thought was mid price. I ended up with a DH9104. I had problems from the get go and barely touch the thing now.
So, I did a Google search for r/c forums and found this place. Having previous experience with message boards getting me through my previous hobby of saltwater aquariums I knew this would be a place I could find help, answers to my questions, and advice I wouldn't be able to find anywhere else.
When my tax return came in this year I visited my local hobby store and left with a Blade CX2 coaxial helicopter.
I had no idea what I was doing and trying to learn to fly in my dining room was not the best choice. I went through more than my fair share of stock blades before making certain changes to the heli with upgraded aluminum parts and hardened blades. Eventually I cleaned my garage out and had enough room to really start learning how to fly this thing.
To date, due mostly to my ego, I have had to replace a few inner and outer shafts and gears. But I am learning and using what I know to take it easy and not get too confident.
