    New hobby

    I have got my coupe to where I want it so now I need a new hobby.

    I went to a model shop Monday on my way home and I'm now the proud owner of a remote control helicopter!

    It may seem like a strange choice, but one of my friends flys them and I've admired it for a while so I thought why not?

    I took mine for it's first "flight" last night, it was a bit like watching a newborn Zebra taking it's first steps on Wildlife on 1, but it returned to it's hanger in 1 peice for which I gave myself a pat on the back.

    I can't wait to mast this electric one so I can buy one of the big IC powered ones......

    I always wanted a remote helicopter but after the waste of money my remote control car was I have refused to buy one. I get bored of stuff too easily (or break them too easily).

    Football is and always will be my hobby (I break things playing that too)

    You can, but a mate who's an experienced flyer suggested not using one and flying the heli for real.

    I have to admit it's addictive and I am enjoying it so far, but can't wait to do more. Got to remember not to get too cocky though
