View Full Version : Hello from Dallas
02-27-2011, 11:29 AM
I just wanted to take the time to say hello to everyone on the forum. I am brand new to this great hobby/skill. I have been flying for all of about 2 months at the most. Started with cheap toys and then moved to the mSR. Pretty much got it down in a couple of days and thought it would be a great idea to move up to the SR. This of course is a completely different animal altogether. A bit over my head but loving the challenge. Crashed right away but with the greatness of HeliFreak I learned how to take apart and repair my head assembly in no time. Still landing quite hard everytime out but learning more every chance I briefly take to the air. Thanks for all the great post and videos. Looking forward to my future as a RC heli pilot.
