Electric radio controlled helicopter hobby

Radio controlled Align TREX 450SE - This is a photo of the Align TREX 450SE version 2. This is IMO, the best 400 size r/c heli. It is of extremely high quality build and is capable of doing all the stuff the larger gas helis can do.

I have two boys and keen to get them started with R/C Helicopters as a hobby. Well, I found your post, now I am looking forward to a brief introduction as to how to get started.

Hi coffeechat. Well before I begin introducing r/c helicopters to you, I need some information from you. How old are your boys? Do they have any experience/exposure with radio controlled stuff? (cars, trucks, boats etc) Have they shown interest in r/c before? What are some of their other hobbies or stuff that they just like to do? Would you say they are 'mechanically' inclined? Answer these questions and we'll go from there.

They are 8 and 5 and of course their dad and me too! The boys have had R/C cars and boats. We have never tried RC helicopters or planes. Thanks.
