Yes, but you see, I have a very supercilious attitude towards model helicopters. Once, some time ago I had to make an extended business trip to Pakistan, where I got seriously ill. The corporate health insurance took care of all the expenses, but I had a long period of convalescence.

What to do? Why, build model helicopters, of course! Physical and mental exertion were banned under pain of wife.

I built two, one a trainer, of robust and matronly appearance, and the other a scale model. Now, as a kid I had built lots of RC model 'planes, even building my own transmitter and receiver duos. Flew them all, after a few unintentional but non-fatal prangs.

Both helicopters? Sixty seconds max. All fatal - back to the drawing board jobs.

Thus I have immense respect for anybody who can fly the bloody things - but just don't ask me about my piloting skills.

Me? The following year I bought a boat and went sailing. Never pranged that.
