Yup! There sure is.

I live in North Charleston. The field I fly at (www.jedburgflyersrc.com) is just past Summerville. We have around 5 - 6 heli flyers in the club that can lend a hand. If you like, just give me a call at 843-207-8961 and we'll talk.

bobo, there are several of us in the area... most of which seem to fly at the jedburgflyers as mike mentioned. Do you already have a heli or are you looking to buy a first model? The guys that we fly with have a few birds you could check out:
- Raptor 50
- Century Hawk 30
- Tiger 50 and 90
- several T-Rex SE birds
- Quick 50 and 90

We are having an Electric Fly-in on September 9th out at Jedburg, which may be a good opportunity for you to get to check out a lot of different birds and meet most of the guys. Marcus Kim may be out there to do a noon time demo also... not sure yet though. Feel free to PM me if you need anymore information.

Thanks guys. I went out to the Jedburg field Saturday and Sunday. I got to meet a lot of nice guys and all were very helpful. I even went down to the local shop and picked up a bunch of stuff including a field box and all that goes with it. Most of it anyway I will definitely be back. Hotwings, I got to meet Chris too. I hope to also meet you someday.

Hi -syn,
I was at the field 9:00 til 12:00 on Sat and 9: til 11:00 on Sunday. I went over to Freds place and bought a bunch of stuff and headed on home. I will probably ride up this week end for the fun fly.

I need fuel.... lots and lots of fuel. From what Chris told me you guys are all running 30% wildcat, which is the same thing I run. Is there anyway that I can get in on a bulk order sometime?
