I知 throwing in the towel and sell it all

I just don稚 have the time for this hobby anymore. I have not touched in three months. It was fun, but I知 moving on to other things for now. Maybe next fall when things slow down I値l start fresh. It is a slightly modified HBFP with 3 LiPo batteries and enough spare parts to build a few more, wood blades, Slo-Max motor, it痴 all on Ebay.
It痴 been fun, maybe again in the fall.

Keep it! Just put it away until the Fall, or until your interest piques again! You will not regret keeping it. You have so much time and money already invested to just give it all up.

Hey, I like that idea. If I sell my life, can I include my wife? I wonder how that works.

Ok, I can dig a fresh start; but keep your bird! When you crash your "fresh rig", you will still have one to fly during repairs and rebuilds. Also, you can try new moves with your old bird while saving your fresh bird. Can you see where I'm coming from? Shelf it for now and if you still feel the same way one month from now; then sell it and use the proceeds towards a computer radio. Hang ini there!

Keep practicing on the sim. You'll be flying well by the time you resume. We had a local boy do sim for 2 years. He was mastering 3D. Then first 10 real packs he was doing fantastic 3D. Needless to say everybody is doing sim now LOL.

I had a similar thread but my reason was I couldn't hover my walkera 52 for 3 months.

Really, it's not a big deal, I'll be back. I have other bad habits, I mean hobbies that are using up my time and funds. Once it gets cold again, you'll see me back.

Thanks, I値l still be hanging around to keep up to date. Also, this has to be one of the best forums on the internet. No s#it! Very supportive, helpful, knowledgeable and a sense of humor. Everything I look for in a girl or friend.
