I've been bitten by the flying bug, but don't know where to turn. I
have been reading a lot of opinions and articles, but now I want to
start flying! I would like to end up with a model that I can fly in
our local parks and fields. I am tempted to get something like a
Firebird XL and teach myself to fly, but would prefer some advice or
hands on experience from someone who is already flying.
I don't have any flying experience, but am familiar with the basic
idea. I have been getting a lot of time with a simulator, using a
joystick, but I can't imagine that it is even close to the real thing.
Does anyone in Victoria have a transmitter type interface they could
What I'd really like, though, is for some kindly pilot to drop me a
note if they are going to go out flying, so I can come out to watch. I
promise to not to beg for a turn, but I wouldn't turn it down either!
I think that I am most interested in electric park or slowfliers, but
I would enjoy seeing whatever you fly.
I would ask for help from the Victoria Model club, but right now their
web site is down, and I believe their focus is on glow/gas models.
Perhaps a firebird would be a good way to go? Has anyone outgrown
theirs and would like to sell it?
