Beware the Ides of march - or leftovers

Posted 04-12-2012 at 12:38 PM by Jermo

After almost 2 years I'm back to flying RC helicopters. I had a rough start with trying to fly from memory .

I actively searched and found a mentor to help me. I wanted someone who was willing to help, doesn't like spending money in the hobby, and really knows what they are doing. I know it's a tall order but I found the man for the job and he's been awsum to meet and start getting to know. I'm feeling excitement for the hobby again.

Tom (my mentor) went over...
