    #KeepRCHelisAlive - the movementHow to train your pilot

    Our hobby, second (or first) life is in trouble, it's no doubt. Fewer and fewer people join to this hobby. Drones, computer games, social media, changing lifestyle all can be blamed, but this is a more complicated problem by my opinion. Something has to be done and one thing is the #KeepRCHelisAlive hashtag and the ideology behind it.
