Santa bought me a r/c helicopter for Christmas, the instruction book is a hoot, including the following wise words.

" Always go forward and turn left, and exercise flight in a quadrate fashion, then repeatedly practices to gradual practice flight in a rotundity". :D

Well I would if I knew what it meant.

Isn't that the instructions for the air races at Reno?

Fly fast, fly low, turn left...

Google Translate isn't always all that good from Chinese to English.

If you speak the original language, it can be useful to Google-translate back to the original: the result often makes more sense than the English.

I remember some classics from years past, but have to go out now...
