Personaly I enjoy climbing the mast.

Saw this ad listed on a local buy-n-sell site. mast head inspections via RC Helicopter North Saanich & Sidney , Victoria
Would any of you use a service like this? It just seems like a waste of 50 bucks. For that price I'd climb it for you and snap some photos.

Re: Personaly I enjoy climbing the mast.

I'd climb my mast as well but got to give it to the guy for finding a niche for his business.

Ha ha, after I posted the above I clicked on a picture the guy posted of his helicopter and a banner ad came up that went here:

OOPS!!, Guess for $50 I could do it myself after a little practice.

I rather climb as well. Those little RCs are very hard to fly outdoors especially under a tiny bit of wind. I can't imaging getting them up 40' or 50' and then keep it hovering long enough to take a decent photograph!

When you fly them indoors, you'll end up crashing them into your walls/ceilings and most of the time they'll fly again but if that happens at the dock, the poor thing is in water and totally done for!
