I hope this helps bring a better reputation to the hobby, brings a smile to Maresa's face and perhaps restores some of her faith in humanity.

I just want to add that contributions are also comming in from RR. Other sites may also be invovled. This incident affects the greater rc heli community and it is appropriate that we respond as a whole.

Experience is something you gain only after you need it.
I wouldn't mind social media so much if it didn't involve people.
