No... not a big person's real helicopter, like the ones you ride in... but a remote control helicopter.
In the "olden days", circa late 1940s, early 50's, it was balsa wood stickbuilt aeroplanes, Baby R.O.G.'s, gliders etc... and then U-Control gas models. No remote control, but "free-flight" planes that would end up wherever, when the McCoy .029 engine ran out of gas. Neighbor's roof, pond, tree and if you were lucky, back on the ground. Three flights would be lucky!
So now it's time to go back to my youth, and do the model airplane thing again.
We have an R/C club in the next town, but the field is about 7 miles away, and the guys only meet once a week. We do have a large park, almost next door, with four large soccer fields. A few people fly electric "Park Flyers":
Slow Flyers / Park Flyers: Small, Lightweight RC Planes from Hobby Express
.... but what I'd like to try is helicopters... the kind that is now in every toy catalog, and are often demonstrated in the Mall kiosk areas.
Sooo... looking for anyone here who has experience with helicopters... either yourself, or your kids or grand kids. Flying inside the house appeals to me, as we have a 13 foot vaulted ceiling... DW has threatened me with divorce or worse, but I believe flight insurance is available, so that would cover the heirloom crystal and the Hummels.
Not looking for a drone... just a little electric model that I can fly from room to room, or on the windless days, to the park.
