Thanks

EDIT@ Another thing, that i thought i'd put in this thread, is i see most people can break several propellers? how much are replacements? i keep finding them for £400, and im worryed that if it is as common as they seem to be on youtube, then what do people do about this?

Hi Mike, I know it's painful but you need to forget about spending all your money for now. Get some instruction first and get a feel for it all - can I ask how old you are?

And yes, props are expensive and you will break them.

15 turning 16 in Nov.

Mike, have to +1 this. Save the cash and the equipment. Get training.. spend time with people and get a feel for the sport.

best of luck to you, it's great to see such passion.

Thanks alot,

as someone already said, im 15, 16 on bonfire night :) and usually people tend to now get anxious and want to spend money anyway, but im glad you've said to save my money, but could you possibly elaborate on that? Im not sure how i could do anything, without spending money?

And is anyone flying near Spalding this weekend? Free all weekend which is a surprise as im not usually due to cadets and other things, and would love to come see some people fly and have a chat with some of you!

Thanks

Mike, you might want to start keeping an eye on the weather. You'll soon learn when there's a possibility of flying activities. As for doing things without spending? There will be fly-ins or people flying nearby throughout the year, you can always ask to pitch up to say hi, be nosey and see what goes on. Most people will be only too happy to let you watch, talk with you about what they do.

Hope that helps.

you're doing the right thing on here. Just keep asking. Someone will pipe up with a response if they're anywhere nearby.
