I am relatively new to the hobby but the ARF vs Kit issue is an interesting one. I got my wings this year after two seasons. The whole thing started quite simply enough with a gift of a Piper Cub kit from a kid we had taken in as a thank you. Well I started the kit in the dining room and after two years I am about to join the wings. I still am a year away from having it ready. After putting it away for dinner every day, I finally went out and bought a used eagle 2 put the radio in and joined a local club (Ajax RC) and learned to fly.
If I waited for me to finish the cub I still would not be flying.
However building is fun and I am glad I am working on one that I can say I built myself. There seems to be a difference in perception between those who build from scratch to those who build from kits to those who build Arf's.
I now have a room dedicated to building so I don't have to put the darn thing away every night to keep peace in the house. I still like the ARF's better as they are in the air before you know it.

If ya deadstick three times just stomp on it...It's an easier death!

Multi-faceted Hobby

Although flying modellers all fall into a group it is individuality of each of our interests that make the hobby so interesting. I am very scattered in my approach. I love em all. Rubber to Giant Scale. I am so busy trying to do it all that I never (seldom) get out flying. I have an enormous stack of kits and half finished projects but right now I am developing a model from full scale plans and pictures.

If I envy any one style of modelling it is the guy who has a few real beauties of different types that he flies regularly because he only builds one at a time and who's building and flying skills are developing together.

If money were no object I would likely gravitate towards some of the high quality giant scale short kits that still require a lot of skill to complete but get you started and finished with some real slick prefabricted components.
