Raymond, e-mail, 12.04.2012

hi, can the helicopter be flown on wet weather? what if i get caught in a rain while flying? can it contue flight or will i have to land it?

Dum I. Dear, e-mail, 25.03.2012

I hope all you people who want to buy these helicopters can fly better than you can spell, because helicopters require a lot more skill than flying a plane, which requires a lot more skill than driving a car, which requires a lot more skill than riding a bicycle, which requires a lot more skill than riding a donkey.

Luckily for you, the skill levels are commensurate with a capacity to fork over the moolah and so you can save your bacon.
