As the nights draw in I needed something else to do in the evenings

All I need to do is learn to fly the thing now

The orange balls are training gear to keep the repair bills down

They don't just keep a spare set of rotor blades, you'll need them

She came with a spare tail and main rotor and although I've had a few dinks already I've not had to use them yet. Still getting the hang of keeping stationary while on the floor before I go all out for a hover.

Even though it's less than a week old I'm hooked and already looking at the bigger Trex's
