Personally, I don't fly ceiling fans, but I have the greatest respect for those who do. ;) Welcome aboard; fly safely.

Completely understandable, I mean I have a decent understanding of how the things actually work and even so I'm having a hard time believing these things can/should actually fly :lol: Like my instructor said during basic training: A helicopter basically consists of a million moving parts rotating rapidly around an oil leak while waiting for metal fatigue to set in :lol:

Thanks, and likewise! :)

Welcome Anton! Many years ago, when I was a communications officer in the 9th Air Cavalry Regiment, the pilots would say, "Airplanes fly; Helicopters beat the air into submission". So good luck beating the air into submission!

Actually, Dan, helicopters defy the laws of physics. You apply inordinate amounts of power, and somehow, they manage to lift off. By rights they should just screw themselves into the ground.
