I've been fly RC helis for 16 months now. It's a very enjoyable hobby even though these RC helis are VERY difficult to learn to fly. I highly recommend this hobby to anyone who enjoys a good challenge.

Crash was caused by losing orientation (attitude) of the heli. I had never flown on an overcast day coupled with a snow-covered ground. Those visual conditions were very difficult for me. Of course, crashing and repairing is just part of the hobby.
