Even with planes I have gotten away from glow. I converted a 80" 15+lb plane to electric and it is just a dream to fly. I only have 1 pack for it as that is a bit of a pain to get in and out....have to remove the wing. It flys on 48v and is the biggest plane that I currently own. I do not it much anymore as it is really just too big for me to mess with.
I have always loved the P-39 but truth be known I fly the wings off my little P39 alfa, the big VQ has about 10 flights total on it.

Anymore I just fly foam. I really enjoy the Radin I just bought and am just going crazy with the little panther. I actually do not think I would be still flying if it was only balsa.
The cars I actually don't even mess with my 1/5 buggy much anymore...bet it has been 6-8 months. I do like to dig out the slash once and a while and bomb around the yard, the race scene around here is just a little to nutty for me....most of the father son, casual racers have left....only hard core guys anymore.
