    Dear Heli Brethren.

    How often do you frequent your sacred heli field/club and end up piking out because....

    • Its too windy
    • Its too hot
    • Its too cold
    • I have a hangover

    Well Heli-Brethren i take it upon myself to try and educate you somewhat. Every minute you spend at the heli-field not flying is another precious flying minute lost. Sure its fine to take breaks in between flights - but for heligod fathers sake please at least attempt to fly at least once.... You wont regret it as another flight had is another flight you may never have had. So please next time you are at the field and you don't feel like flying? Just do yourself a favor, grab that heli by the mainshaft and just perform some easy figure 8s or practice some basic skills. Not every flight has to be a balls to the walls smak fest. Find some time to re-connect with your heli when you dont think you should....

      Usually the 4th point puts me out. But thank you Farther for your wisdom.

      One possible solution to counter option four @Captain . Deep inhalation of the holy nitro fuel. This will re-invigorate the heli soul. Either that or buy an MCPX-BL and keep drinking and flying. Your unlikely to kill yourself that way....

      I will generally fly regardless of the weather.. but when the wind is blowing and everyone is packing up.. .and you just have gone through a battery ejection.. I decided to call it a day... but hell I'll fly as long as I can see the heli, and its not raining...

      I never go to the field and not fly. I could never disappoint the HeliGods by doing that. So I always get at least a couple flights in. As far as conditions go... I was designed and built for tropical weather, so heat is never a factor for me. Wind bothered me in the beginning, when I was learning to hover. But now, I`ll fly in very windy conditions. In 2012, I attended a fun fly which was happening on the same weekend that a hurricane (Hurricane Sandy) was passing a couple hundred miles off our coast. The wind was blowing at a solid 22mph and we were hard at it and having a great time. It can definitely get cold enough to make me consider not flying, but I put on my big girl panties and get out there anyway. I don`t drink, (I don`t even know what alcohol tastes like) so no hangovers here. The only thing that has cut my day of flying short so far.....(and this has only happened to me once) was running out of the holy nitro. THAT....will never happen again, as I have learned my lesson, and gained knowledge from my mistake. I have since started bringing a whole case of the holy nitro with me every time I go to the field. I also bring three helicopters each time I go to the field. That way, if @Crash Heligod pays me a visit....I can pull out another helicopter and get back to it. :)

      You are truly a Heli Warrior @Geena. Dedication, tenacity and talent = world class pilot. From day one we were blessed to have you as a member...That also applies to many other of our Heli-brethren as well. You will go far and every video you submit shows massive improvement!

      @Manyc from all reports you to are becoming a chosen one destined for heli-enlightenment. The tenacity to fly in conditions others wont fly in - and to fly flight after flight can only lead to one conclusion!

      Seriously @feral, it must be the time of the year or the weather as several hardcores have reported the same. But as sure as night turns to day the situation will change. Its just a lull - I promise. For some reason this time of year tests many people. Persist with non-stressful stuff, find the joy - there is plenty to be had. Remember you have mastered one of the most difficult things in the world. Its no simple task to reach the level you have obtained. Mix with more heli-brethren and remember the heligods funfly is coming up at the end of November..

      I like when it's windy at my club. All the plank guys leave when a mild wind starts blowing.

      When its windy, helicopters still work so long as your experienced. Its more psychological than anything else.

      I usually pick up when it gets too crashy at the field. I don't want to get any of that on me.
