dunno, how 'bout a trade? I have one that keeps picking out Bipes for me to build, which wouldn't be a problem if I actually liked bipes.

Re: Buying planes and your spouse

Hi Eajohnson,

I've seen several posts warning people who have items for sale that they have to have a price according to the new forum rules.

I agree that you sound like you have a good product, and I'm sure in good shape and as a result the offers are more than likely to go very high, however, rules are rules and I'm surprised a moderator hasn't repremanded you for breaking them!

Re: Buying planes and your spouse

My wife knows what I spend on the hobby and where the funds come from, whether general fund sor coming from outside activities such as eBay sales. Basically, no communication or lying really have not a place in a loving and trusting relationship.

Just got back from a family wedding in England and I've acquire a JAMARA GeeBee Z that's been reviewed in the latest RCM&E (the one with the Nijhuis Spitfire free plans). My wife knows what I bought, how much was spent, and how much it cost to mail it home (won't fit in sitcases....)

Now, I've got about a dozen projects to finish or start...... Not counting what I'll have to spend in spare parts.

Re: Buying planes and your spouse

Only time my wife complains about my aircraft is when I don't hang em back up or put them away and she needs to use the workshop... she won't touch them as she's afraid she'd break on... i do get a little flack if the plane hangs from the ceiling and never gets flown... for xmas 2 years ago she bought me a harmon rocket and last year her and the father in law went together and bought me my A9 radio so she knows what things cost.

She was looking over my shoulder one day when i was going through my wishlist on GH and was looking a little uneasy because she thought it was the shopping cart not the wish list... lol

Proud owner of a Hitec A9!!
