How long have you been in the hobby? 7 years!

How did you get started in the hobby? I got into the hobby in a very interesting way. A co-worker was cleaning out his garage and gave me a few airplanes, batteries, parts and a charger. I was initially overwhelmed as I knew nothing about the hobby at that time. I went to my local hobby shop and they took the time to educate me on the basics to get started. Before I left, I noticed the helicopter section of the store and was immediately drawn to it. The owner of the shop told me what it took to get started and I came back to the store 2 days later to purchase my beginner helicopter (Blade CX2). I was hooked and never looked back. I learned as much as I could through friends in the hobby and online. I can't tell you how many times I watched the CCPM videos from Finless Bob :) I've met a lot of wonderful people in the hobby and look forward to every opportunity to attend events and give back to other beginner pilots.
