    I am.... sorta...


    I don't have much anymore, I used to have a whole bunch of RC 1/10 electric cars, a .60 size nitro helicopter with JR 10s remote, I have a Zagi flying wing somewhere in storage... I still have an RC10 B3 team kit.... and some old Tamiya hard body electric RC car....


    I used to work at a hobby shop back in 1999/2000, during my senior year of high school.... a lot of money made there was put right back into the shop :lol3



    I have thought about getting back into the RC world- as soon as I am "settled" but that may be a few years... :D

    There are lots of nify things out there nowadays huh! :evil

    Not quite, but I do have a few of them up for sale and would like to add a used DS to my garage.

    I´ve still got about twelve fully functional electric airplanes in my basement that I haven´t flown for years...and two that I haven´t even gotten around to assembling yet...how was I supposed to know that motorcycling uses up such a lot of time on warm, sunny days? Why didn´t anybody warn me??

    Thanks for starting that thread, reminds me I really ought to get back into my old hobby a bit. All that stuff is quietly starting to go to waste, epecially the batteries.

    I, too, have got too many hobbies...motorcycling, bicycling, R/C airplanes, archery, reading most of all :huh

    i had several others. gave them all to my kid. he loves to fly the stuff.



    i had better luck with the "air hogs" planes. simple. nearly indestructable. and CHEAP. got 'em on clearance at a Target store. 20 bucks ready to fly.
