    In the run up to the festive season, I read many times on the forum predictions of lots of complete beginners never having operated any craft before, all putting their shiny new copters in the air without so much as glancing at the Manual, and promptly trashing them...
    I kinda expected it too...
    But I dont seem to have seen many such posts, or have I missed them?

    There have been a few over the past couple of weeks. I'm sure many people don't want to call attention to themselves ;)

    I'm sure if they were in that big a hurry to get into the air they didn't have the time to get on this forum
