Hey I'm new here. Looks to be a great site. I just got my first electric heli so that i could fly in the winter while my gas plane sits in the garage waiting for winter to be over . Now that i have experienced electrics, i think im gonna keep it electric. Next purchase= Blade CP Pro. It's kind of a big jump from a little LAMA V3 but I've pretty much mastered flying that so i dont think the Blade will be that troublesome for me.
Well, see you on the forums!

-Eric L.

Just started out. Bought a E-sky honey bee. I like it alot and only had 1 fatal crash lol. Managed to get a good grasp of the tuning and balancing that goes into flying. Just took my training gear off and have not smashed into anything yet. I also bought a Raptor G2. Much more complex to tune and balance but i have been reading alot which helps. I have managed to get it off the groung finally but it is still a little off. I jimmy rigged some trainer gear on it but I think it throws off the gyro when I power up. I joined this forum because I read alot on here after I was having some problems w/ th raptor. Mixed reports, and I have to admit it is frushrating at first, but I enjoy learning about things so I'll stick w/ it. My goal is to eventually get good enough to film surfers in action. I produce surf vids for NJ and I think the micro cams offer a great new filming POV and style. Although the quality isnt that good right now from the micro cams, I'm sure the technology will advance soon. Thanks for showing interest.

I see, you fly those machines with the prop on the top. I will probably try them some day since they are getting cheaper and easier to fly. The heli forums will give you lots of help, just post your question.

When you say the winter has been pitiful, I assume you are speaking of New Jersey. Isn't it really cold there---too cold to surf. Or do surfers just put on wet suits and gut it up? Wow.

Best surf may be in the winter, but on Long Island, best slope soaring is in the winter to.

Why float in the ice water when you can fly over it?

Hello Rich and welcome to WattFlyer.

Be sure to ask lots of questions before you buy that first electric. I have seen too many folks waste their money on the first airplane and get something that really does not meet their needs.

Just ask your questions and folks will help. You might look for an electric club in your area. Personal face to face help is great.
