    Hello all. I wanted to introduce myself since I may be in here asking several questions over the next few months. My name is Mike and I'm in Victoria BC, Canada. I'm almost finished a dimploma in Electronics Engineering Technology.

    My questions relate to my final project starting in April next year. The project will involve an RC helicopter. So here they are:

    1) Is there a good source of information on how to actually fly a helicopter? Free is ideal, cheap is tolerable. Websites, books, other forums etc... anything would be helpful.

    2) We're looking for a helicopter that would be heavily modified. The modifications would be to control systems and will include printed circuit boards etc. I don't know the exact weight yet. So we're looking to find a helicopter that would be very forgiving over a wide range of payloads.

    Any help in this matter would be appreciated.

    Thanks again,
