I would like to hire someone for an afternoon (3 or 4 hours) to fine tune my
Raptor30/OS32/JR652 and give me some flying lessons.  I live in the
Portland, Oregon area and would pay about $20/hour.

Hi sal
        Hav u thought of going to a local heli club in your area,its a bit
sad when you need to resort to paying sumone 20 bucks an hour to
help.(Unless thats what u really want to do )
Come on guys in the Portland ,oregano area. offer your assistance (fee free)

Is Oregano the next State up from Basil :-)

To be honest I've seen both, free lessons at a club, and paid for lessons
with someone who actually teaches for a living. The paid for lessons win
hands down:

Full time instructors are really good with a buddy lead, so you have a great
safety net.

The good ones are constantly updating their teaching methods

If you fly helis all day, you've got to be pretty good.

Tim.

I can teach almost anyone within a hour/lesson or two (same day) very safely
without a buddy-cord. In fact, I do this all the time just to give the public a
hands-on taste of RC heli hovering.

I've offered to teach other experienced heli fliers how to do this so well, but
it seems that they would rather just  fly their heli and not be bothered.

Just my .02

there is a local club here in Portland (I go to school here):
www.cascaderotorywings.org

ask around! Someone should help you for free... I would, but don't have a
car here (Friends are great!).

Thanks Dan for the info.  However, I did try to contact three different
people at Cascade Rotary and I did not get a reply.  I was hoping someone in
the area would be interested (and experienced) in giving lessons.  Besides,
I'd rather pay and not feel I am imposing.  So I'll keep looking until I
find someone...

You might be able to get somewhere by contacting the guys out at Tammie's
Hobbies in Beaverton.  Contrary to their webpage, they do carry heli gear.

Hey Steve.  Give me a buzz and I will lead you into some folks that
would be pleased to help you for nothing.  We fly at a place north of
Vancouver where this happens daily.
