When you see Tugs face ( a man that will quite happly hit 280 clicks down the straight at Sepang) when his RC helicopter with a 1.2 meter blade span spins up to 2000 rpm . The look of horror is priceless
boffin = geek = inteligent to the edge of normality= anorak boys
Helicopters! Not too bad ( compared to a few years back)but if you're starting from scratch and need a transmitter, charger, gyro etc your looking at at least S$ 1000
for something decent.
You can learn to fly ( and crash) on something cheaper to start with. You can get a ready to go set for a couple of hundred bucks maybe even less.
Look at ebay. The guys out of Hong Kong supply some pretty cheap stuff ( remember your going to wreck it)
.check this out
Planes. Easy look at the foam kits from GWS. They fly great ( till you let TUg fly em anyway)
Look for a shop in Singapore called rotor hobby. It's near Lavender road area. Kitchener complex. Good prices and some great gear
It might look expensive but the hospital bills are cheaper than racing bikes and driving 500 bucks worth of kit into the ground
is much less painful than 20 K's worth of bike ....trust me
