    How do boys and girls. I have been reading and lurking for a while and have decided to jump in the water. Or maybe I should say dive in head first. I have never flown, except for the little toy ones, so this will be my first experience. From reading, the first thing I have learned is............ NEVER FLY WITHOUT FULL BATTERY.

    I am curious if there are any local meets not only in the Houston area but other parts of the country/world? I need to research that a little and maybe meet up with some local vets that can tutor/mentor me if they didnt mind.

    Gotta be honest, I'm kinda skeeered to just jump out there with no experience. I assure you, I will start slow and low and work my way up. But still a little jittery. I plan on my first bird being 3P or 3A and will buy used for the first bird. Unless you guys tell me otherwise. I'm open to any and all suggestions.

    Cool.
