I bought a fancy chopper and never mastered flying the damn thing! Parts are not cheap, but these seem a bit more user friendly.

Want to buy a slightly used Walkera RC chopper? ;)

I purchased a couple for my cousins. They are great toys, but the wing turny thing gets gummed up with hair (I really need to vacuum) and stops working.

Ha, how much did you pay for it? You definitely own one of the larger, pricier ones. That is the kind the Bruce Jenner enthusiasts own

Yeah, I had the same problem after I flew it in my grandma's room. Took me awhile to pencil it out. It's like wow, there is really a lot of hair around here

Nah, it wasn't as expensive as that one. His is a larger scale than mine and probably around 2 grand.
Mine was only ~150.
