Starting with an 800?? That is very ballzy. I assume that you have never been flown a RC heli or seen an 800E at action, then you wont realize how dangrous this thing can get. It can easily kill a NBA sized person.

I strongly suggest you starting with a 450, after a few crashes, you can move to like a 600 or 700 sized heli. Just for the safty reason, I WON'T suggest you to get an 800E. Not mean to be rude, but Its gonna make you become a killer.

Much like going before the condo review board. : )

Default Geography?

Erbil is in Iraq.

Erbil (Hewlr in Roman-alphabet Kurdish) (also written Arbil, or Irbil) (Akkadian: Arba-ilu; Arabic: اربيل‎ Arbīl; Kurdish: ھەولێر Hewlr; Sumerian: Urbilum; Syriac-Aramaic: Arbaelo) is, with a population of approximately 1.3 million (2009), the fourth largest city in Iraq after Baghdad, Basra and Mosul. It is located 80 kilometres (50 miles) east of Mosul, and is the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan.
Urban life at Erbil (Hewlr) can be dated back to at least 6000 BC, and it is one of the oldest continuously inhabited cities in the world. At the heart of the city is the ancient Citadel of Arbil. The Hurrians were the first to establish Urbilum and expand their rule to the rest of northern Mesopotamia. The city has since been under the rule of many regional powers, including the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Medes, the Persians, the Greeks, the Arabs, and the Seljuk and Ottoman Turks. Erbil's archaeological museum houses a large collection of pre-Islamic artifacts, and is a center for archaeological projects in the area.

That's just silly ......I'm trying to buy an 800 (already built ) at the moment but at least I already have a 230s (flown it once,I crashed ) plus I have at least 5-6 good solid hours of sim time under my belt........ ,why you ask would I look at doing something that silly,dumb,irresponsible and dangerous .......quite simply because they are just so massive and awesome and even if all I ever did with it was strap it down to the back of the ute just to hear that glorious music I would be happy ........I won't do that tho...

I hope to look at it everytime the sim starts to do my head in and I think flying an rc heli is all witchcraft and magic....and then I hope to progress to looking at it after I've mashed the 230 for the 100th time just trying to get inverted nose in.......but I'll know that if I keep at it.....one day.....

.......now I better go introduce myself because I have read and studied just enough to start asking stupid questions and I know that there is SO MUCH to learn and I'm gonna need a lot of help
