To All The Birds I've Loved Before...

Hello All,

How many helis have you had since you've started this hobby? How many are in your fleet?

For me, I've just started. I've now built two hummingbirds in two months. One is in pieces. The other is grounded pending parts arriving.

Lord, I started with a GMP Cricket. I've owned at least 50 heli's. Right now I have a Shogun, X-Cell 60 and a Schluter Champion. I hope to have a few more micros in the next 60 days, I love these things.

I've had two helicopters in just as many months.


The first was a Twister that turned out to be a heap of unreliable, poorly manufactured, unflyable junk and its no longer with me.

Then I bought a Hirobo XRB SR, what a difference, its well engineered and flies really nicely. At the moment its all the helicopter I need.

Regards
