I met this gentleman as I was cycling to work along the Bow River pathways. He was out for a morning flying his remote controlled helicopter. He was very happy to chat about his hobby. He explained that this flying machine was very complex and difficult to maintain. He built it himself using parts from three different models and it's close to the weight limit for flying which makes it a little difficult to control. He has the control panel in his hand in this shot and it was very complicated. He built it because he wanted to learn how to fly choppers. I hung around to watch him take off. He was pretty good!
Calgary is a great city...lively and vibrant with friendly people! We have perfect weather, with clearly defined seasons. Winter is winter and it's cold and snowy but there's always ski-ing! Summers are hot but with a delightful cool breeze off the Rocky Mountains. And almost every day the sky is big and blue.
