I'm sure many of us have received crazy emails from Chinese sellers. The emails were obviously written in Chinese then (poorly) translated to Engish.

Some translations leave you frustrated while some are funny.

The word 干 has several different meanings: "dry", "do" and "do someone". Strangely, translation software have picked "do someone" for most of the translation of 干:

My trip to California is going to be a huge change for me, my wife, and my 2 year old son. Life seems to be very different from where I'm at now. Cars drive on the right side of the road, tipping at restaurants, four seasons in a year, ... oh my!

As this is a RC forum, I have the following questions:

1. I'll be bringing my 9X transmitter, V922, and FBL80, along with their replacement parts and Li-Po batteries. For the 20-hour flight, I may check in the TX but keep the fragile helis in a hand-carry bag. Do you think TSA over at SFO will give me problems? I have read bad things about TSA, so I'm not sure if the two micro helis may be seen as some dangerous devices.

2. Are there laws on the places I can fly RC helis? Will I get into trouble with the cops if I fly my 100-sized helis at open grass fields near my neighborhood? As an Asian, I'm worried I might get "special" treatment from the cops.

3. I may be buying larger helis while I'm at California, and I have to fly them at fields far from people. But I'm worried about my safety, such as getting robbed while alone at a faraway field. Am I worrying too much?

Thanks guys!
