Yea those things are great. I'm noticing that even some of the toys geared for todays child are just as fun for the parent/older sibling to play with.

You wanna see my itinerary?

I've got one of them... don't play with it much any more because it scares the crap out of my dog, even when it's not running now. LOL

Namaste

To the times I'll never remember, with the friends I'll never forget.

Sweet! Yeah those look like fun.

I picked up a RC helicopter a couple of months ago to play with in the winter.

T this is the junk I have.



Its pretty easy to fly. My only problem is I have upgraded stuff on to make it more agile, also making it harder to fly. I keep breaking blades, its a little to big to fly around my family room without crashing.

its not junk its the flyer/tuner.

i got the CX2 also and did the boone carbon fiber and upgraded the lower hub and its a blast! i can fly it anywhere in the house.

ive played with moving the adjusting rods for more throw. when you do that it will make the blades slap "if your try to whip it movments, you get blade trashing" so move em back to where it was. and learn how to stall pitch and you can get it to haul ass.

Yeah I moved the controls back already. I was actually being sarcastic. I enjoy the little thing. I have the CF Boom, Shorter Flybar, Aluminum parts here and there and the unbreakable landing gear. I just gotta find some calm days when I can take it outside. I just don't have the room around the house to fly it well.

dont even bother taking it outside to fly, i am REALLY good with this now, and it is to light, and not enough weight, nor the torque you reall just need to go to the top the line blade "i think its the400?" and learn to fly it all over "which wont be bad now if you can totally control this trainer" but you really need to be good with nose in maneuvers also. then from there, full blown trex models.

HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

Government's view of the economy could be summed up in a few short phrases: If it moves, tax it. If it keeps moving, regulate it. And if it stops moving, subsidize it.
