Default How to tell you are a HeliFreak?

Not sure if this topic has been covered before, but I found myself laughing at my self , so I thought I would post.

You know you are a HeliFreak when you keep your Heli on display in the Entertainment center.

You really know you are a HeliFreak when you look at it when you pass by .

You really know you are a HeliFreak when you stop by where it is at and pick it up, look at it for a few secs, maybe spin the blade (sometimes say to yourself, man this is technology at its best...or something similar) and then place it back .

I am pathetic!!! Any other pathetic habits?

When you spend more hours reading heli forums than hours working.

When you tell your wife about heli stuff and act like she should know what your talking about.

When you try to make flying them your day job.

Guilty on all counts.

I also keep my PSP full of heli videos, in case the subject comes up in conversation with random strangers.

You know you're a Freak when you can't leave the house without your heli case in-hand.

-The real reason your electricity got turned off because you forgot to pay the bill

-The reason your wife or girlfriend rolls her eyes when she walks in the room

-When your wife/girl says; "shouldn't you be looking at porn, sneaking e-mails to a hot co-worker or anything BESIDES those stupid helicopters!!!"

When it's blowing 30knots and bright sunshine outside but rather than go kitesurfing you continue building your new 450se v2 to show off at the weekend heli club meet.

Hell yes.

Also, Freaks buying alarms have turned the occasional flying day to part-time work day, all in the pursuit of saving and helis...

Helifreak rocks!!!

You Know you are a helifreak when you have a lipo on charge all the time.

Some people do yoga or go to the gym but we just fly and when we are not we are on helifeak talking about it.
