Freestyle 3D is simply a great Radio Control Helicopter training school. When I learned to fly, there was no need for training gear, little hops, hard landings, etc. The heli went in the air, I was given the sticks, and I was hovering within minutes. Within a couple of lessons, I soloed and was off practicing by myself. Not only did Todd Bennett teach me the skills I needed but he also gave me the confidence to do it. I've continually heard Todd say "Let me take you out of that" and every time I do, I know he has just saved me time and money because I would likely have crashed. I've also cried "Help me" a few times and each time, Todd took control and recovered the heli, set me back up, highlighted the problem, and worked with me so that it won't happen again. I'm looking forward to the advanced training that is ahead of me. I know it will be fun, enlightening, and done right. The hidden benefit of training with Todd is that he is a great guy, fun to be around, knows his stuff, and he is really intuitive when it comes to knowing what a student needs. As others have mentioned, he is passionate about flying helis and teaching others how to fly them. I highly recommend Freestyle 3D. Thanks Todd!
