Are you one of those modeling junkies that does everything? I recently got a heli, have flown power planes, scale, aerobatics, 1/2a to 100cc gas, electrics, indoors and out. Gliders, slope, scale, DLG,TD, you name it. Free flight, 1 gram indoor fliers, balsa too, indoor, outdoor racing , monster truck, had a sailboat once and a powerboat. Tried control line but never owned one. I guess I'm missing turbines Scratch bulit, kit built, ARF'd, second hand swaps, slapped together with duct tape I'll take them any way they come

Yes to all! ( except free flight so far.)

I'm really starting to like CL, especially .40 size stunt. It's very cool being strapped to that bad-boy as its pulling your arm and roaring overhead inverted. Talk about adrenaline.

There's a good article in the AMA's Model Aviation magazine discussing a "Triathalon of Model Aviation" that combines RC, FF, and CL. Sounds like fun.

Anyway, here's my first CL scratch-build attempt. Flies quite well. Don't worry-- I also have a garage full of R/C's.

As long as there is no time limit, I will eventually get to everything. There is just so many facets of the hobby which will tear your attention, focus, and pocket book in so many different directions.I've dabbled in C/L, C/L scale, FF scale, f/f mini-biplane gliders, indoor rubber, RC power, RCscale, RC gliders, scale aerotowing, electric (old tech), helicopters, floatplanes, IMAA, pattern, and currently turbines. So far I have resisted indoor electric, and surface - though I don't know how much longer I can hold out

The sooner you fall behind, the more time you will have to catch up.

I'll just stick to airplanes. A lot of guys at the club are buying Savage trucks though. Those things are nuts.

I don't fly any spacific type of plane though. I have a fair amount of variety.
Zen 50: Pattern/racing glow
Avistar: Trainer/beater glow
Slowstick: park flyer electric
Mystery V: Quickee 500 Class racer glow

That doesn't include the whole bunch I have that aren't opperational. I have a Vmar Tomahawk that needs a new wing, a GP Pete n Poke somebody crashed that I'm trying to fix, a GP Skyhawk somebody crashed that I'm trying to fix, an Advance 40 that's will probably never fly being far too delicate.

I'm certainly keeping HobbyHobby in business, mostly because parts keep breaking on all the above.
