I start R/C helicopters in 2008 at 38 years old. Before R/C helicopters, I raced slot cars and won three National Championships and race R/C cars in 1987. I got into R/C helicopters after buying my son and nephew one from the mall at Christmas. When they would not fly correctly, I went on the web looking for answers and stumbled upon 3D helicopters. Learning to fly took a lot of practice and patience especially at 38 years old. This hobby has a little bit of everything to offer people. I enjoy the challenge of flying and the social aspect of the hobby. If you are ever in the So Cal area and looking to fly, please contact me.
