Re: Boys' Toys

My brothers experience with RC aircraft is enough to stop me trying.
He has better coordination than me, has successfully flown a helicopter, but still crashes his budget RC planes most times they gets off the ground!
IIRC about 90% the time they've been repairable after the crash, the remainder just allowed a few parts to be recovered.

Re: Boys' Toys

Mike, OM, I have to wonder for how long one could maintain an ongoing interest in RC airplanes - I think I'd be walking away from my first crash!

I think that was pretty much what him & his friend did - until they both got private pilots licenses and started flying for real. Now THAT gets expensive!

A rainbow curve if you ask me, but no pot of gold at its end.
