Zach "out in the country" is a relative thing! To some it means being the last house on the block, to others it means being in a subdivision of acerages. For me it means the nearest farm yard is 1km away, the next nearest 4km, etc.

Fields - same thing! Are they a few acres in size (foot ball field size) or like out here anywhere from 80 acres to several thousand acres of open unfenced streaches of farm land or pasture?

Look around & think "if something went wrong, what is there that I could hit" and make your judgment on the need for insurance on fact not fear. Remember out of control planes can travel several miles so it's a population density thing. Dirt, trees & fence posts don't sue, it's the people you have to watch out for!

For me the only time insurance has any real value is when I attend other club fields & fun flies. Not many are so lucky!
Hang time does not apply to ceiling fans, light fixtures, overhead door tracks or basketball nets!

Re: New to Building

Welcome Zach (to R/C air).
Your choice to construct, then inevitably re-construct to some degree. Is a wise choice in my opinion. A small crush/crunch will be less intimidating, already seen the makings of a structure. Kit bashing is very normal, personalized. Such as your upgrade to bolt on wings, (remember the hard points beneth the sheeting, crush zone). Common sense, and an appreciation of simple physics/mechanics can be rewarding in our hobby (as in cars).
Well, wash the oil off your hands, and enjoy a little glue sniffing, 5 months of building season ahead!


P.S. Mervin means rural, most home owners farm 1600+ acres!
