Keep working on your better half, you'd love one of these. They are quite fun to fly, albeit a little more difficult with no hydraulics, FADEC, etc. of the more modern helo's I fly. It's been a few years since I've flown one but they were a blast. You can pick one up rather reasonably priced if you look around. Let me know if you get one, I'd love to fly one again!
