How it all started..
“Initially, I was confused as to where to begin, which model to buy, how much to spend and therefore, I prolonged the decision of pursuing my passion."
One day, I purchased a remote controlled helicopter for $20. I did not have any knowledge of the technology and limitations of the product. The helicopter I bought was a three channel, non gyro, little Black Hawk, which was extremely hard to fly as it used to rotate on its own axis soon after taking-off.
Furthermore, the only way you could charge the helicopter was through the remote control unit which was an expensive exercise, going through 6 x AA batteries every 7-10 flights.
I then came across somewhat more advanced helicopters, equipped with Gyroscopic balancing systems (which can hover in one location, without undue tail rotation) and a USB cable to charge the helicopter from a computer.
From there on and after gaining some experience, I decided to purchase a medium sized helicopter for $90 from a leading Shopping Centre. The salesperson assured me that it was a good indoor and outdoor helicopter.
However, they never explained the capabilities and the limitations of the helicopter.
One day due to over confidence of indoor flying, I decided to take my new medium size helicopter to a park and fly outdoors. Within few minutes into flight, the helicopter ascended to a height of 30m to 40m and drifted away from where I was and lost it, while trying hard to bring it back , I was unsuccessful due to lack of technology and power.
I went back to the shop and told the salesperson of my experience and they were unsympathetic.
Since then, I started doing my own research to ensure that this would never happen to me or any one else. During my research I purchased various small and medium size helicopters from hobby shops which were expensive and sometimes online via leading websites including at some popular markets stalls in Victoria. To be honest most of them did not fly well or last long, as they were found to be fakes.
Consequently, my first online store was started and began to trade to trade in genuine brand helicopters... It didn't stop there as we opened our shop in Victoria called Techno Hobbies expanding to other RC products such as cars, planes, drones and boats. After serving RC enthusiast for many years, unfortunately due to Covid-19 pandemic we closed the shop front and started our new online shop www.technohobbies.com.au.
