    As is evident from the staggering male to female ratio on these forums and in the hobby. Is it because they think it's better to dump a 1000$ into a something more rational then a "toy" helicopter? Or Is it it just cause they just don't know how to have any fun? Lol

    Nah.. There are heaps of them. Judging by their reverse parking, the women are all out there flying and never have problems or crash and hence rarely appear on any hobby rotor forums.

    I can't even get my girlfriend to just go and watch a single flight of mine. Never once. She doesn't mind that I fly at all but she never tags along. When there's no interest, there's no interest, lol.

    My wife is completely oblivious. I could have a three inch pole antenna on my controller on Tuesday, and then on Wednesday have a 16-turn helical as long as my forearm and she doesn't notice.

    Last thing she said to me about my flying was "You've got a tripod now?", to which I replied, "Honey, I've had a tripod since the kids were born 25 years ago." She said, "Really?" I said, "Of course! Don't you remember my SLR?"

    End of conversation.

    OTOH you got Rachel here who is #10 in the world for distance: Flytrex - Quadcopter and Multirotor Pilots Network

    Edit: Rachel later got bumped by DB. She's probably pissed

    Undoubtedly, unquestionably, this is a boy's thing. I'm into model hobby (copters, cars, planes, etc.) and quads for decades, and indeed I can count in two hands the number of women I came across during all this time who are really into flying and piloting models. Most don't care absolutely, nothing, zero. But the ones I met that fly are all good pilots, even though only a few would get into the maintenance/hands-on of the ACs - pretty much the same with cars LOL. That's funny, but I'm sure there must be an explanation for this :D

    Make a doll glide and fly in air, see the results then.

    Its a guy thing. Ask any of us that are married.
    It is hard enough to keep the wife interested long enough to be my spotter. Women just don't get it.

    Wow!! I am truly blessed. We share in all aspects of our hobbies however I am somewhat lax on the shopping trips enthusiasm and she has issues during the rodeos/bull riding event.

    Other than that she enjoys the drone hobby and the videos/pics.
