Whats even better or worse however you look at it, is when you're in so much next thing you know you have a tab going on the LHS......those tabs can get pretty big in a hurry.

Your next step...if you want to take a next step would be a single rotor FP heli. You can pick up a good one for under $100 now. Just be ready to toss out everything you think you know from flying the coax heli. It is a real heli and after you can fly a FP single rotor you can fly any heli.

The FPV fireworks video was cool, lets face, who hasn't wanted to try that. Fer doG's sake DON'T link it on RCU or RCGroups unless you want to become the target of an AMA jihad though.

Say I wanted to get back into RC trucks after a few years layoff. (previously owned a heavily modded nitro TMAXX and LOSI electric buggy.

Questions:

1. Can electric last more than 15 mins a charge now?
2. Is gas still finicky and messy?

Looking 1/10 scale....prefer 4WD over 2WD.
