Re: Heli hobby is dead

Seriously, do you have to go crapping on other people's for sale threads calling it junk just because you haven't got rid of yours yet?

Re: Heli hobby is dead

Actually, I do believe I said my skills were stagnating. I can fly circuits just fine.

You've had your heli for sale for a whopping two weeks. Give it some time to sell.

Re: Heli hobby is dead

Chuck, I think he works as a cook at Timmies......No wait, that's my old roomate from North Bay.

Helis are not dead. It's that drones fill the airspace so much no room for them.

I saw fat, old Elvis at a McDonald's in Edmonton about 8 years ago. After his breakfast, he was digging through garbage cans for bottles. I wonder if I still have the picture somewhere.
