In the past 10 years I've purchased and built 2 sailplanes, an electric park flyer (a Cub of course), a gas powered Duraplane (flying drain pipe), and a gas powered air boat. I have 2 brand new, never used, 10 year-old radios. That was my entry into R/C...I just couldn't bring myself to fly them....knowing full well I would turn each of them into a smoking crater of balsa and Monokote.
Then 6 months ago, during a brief episode of midlife crisis, I spotted a small R/C copter at the hobby shop...1 gift cert. and $30 later I was terrorizing my co-workers with my ham-fisted efforts as a chopper pilot. Somehow I haven't used any of the spare parts I purchased and 3 of my co-workers now have their own R/C helicopters. I have built up enough self confidence that I am now ready to give the R/C planes a go.
Thankfully I own a backhoe so digging that REALLY big hole will be quick and easy.
