Do you get satisfaction relieving yourself in the bathroom when you get up in the morning ??
It is something you do the same every day of your life.

If not, there is something seriously wrong.

Satisfaction is different for everyone, whether it be something pertaining to our hobbies, or daily bodily functions.

Dude, you are one weird contributor to these forums.

I am very interested in the OMP design philosophy - not that I particularly feel the need to explain that to you.

I am not into micro helis either, but I still follow their on going development with keen interest.

Take a trip over to your LHS and see how many new helis they have on display that you can walk out the door with. A few weeks ago I was at Costco they had a DJI drone prominently displayed.

Manufactures and retailers will promote items that are profitable for THEM!

Thought it worthwhile mentioning this thread which although a bit dated, is still relevant and full of excellent advice and information;

it's ok if someone doesn't like Tareq's aggressive flying style.

but some loopings or inverted hovering while performing the same circles, isn't this so much funnier ?

Nuff said.

Anyway, this was never a popular hobby. Trains are much the same.
Most of today's youngsters seem to want to spend their disposable income on BS name brand clothing and trinkets to show off how much money
they (don't) have.

I know the previous post seems like idiotic rambling, so let me give some background.

My youngest son has been working and saving and managed to gather a good sum for someone his age.
When I asked him if he wanted to buy anything he showed me a Gucci belt that was several hundred dollars.
Since it's his money I held my tongue and asked him if he knew how much of that money went to the people
that actually made the product.

It still started an argument. Perhaps it was my tone.

What would your reply be if he asked you how much of a helicopter's purchase got to the workers?

Heck, buy him a belt. You would happily spend that much on a heli for him, right?
We are only put on the planet to care for each other.

I see I can't win here. Still, it's a strip of leather. I've had $30 dress belts last 10 years (I don't dress up much )
My advice backfired and his response was to put more money into crypto, but I'll take it.

Anyway, sorry for the derail.

Let's get back on track by reposting some epic low head speed 3D.

Trex 550x on a 3s 2200ma pack. 600mm blades. (7 min 1 sec)

3D, much like proper grammar and sentence structure, is not for everyone.
