One of the main reasons I love this hobby

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
So I meet someone (coolheli) on the phone after posting a for sale item. Though we live about 100 km apart, the very next night we meet at a busy place in the middle and manage to find each other within 5 minutes of our agreed time.

We get to chat about RC for about 30 minutes, then spend the next 15 minutes trying to figure out how to fit a 120 sized plane into a volkswagon jetta (and yes we did manage it )

Heading home he gave me some assistance on how to get out of a confusing area (Yorkdale mall) and back on the highway home.

So I made a sale, made a new aquaintance and had a great time all within 48 hours.

Man, I love this hobby, it's the people who make it great.


ps Mark, hopefully you were able to get the plane out of the car at home

Why is it that when a guy posts something positive like this there's no replies but when someone wants to b&*$h about MAAC or something else, there's 5 pages of posts in 1 hr.?

Definitely something about this hobby (as well as others) -- good news is molasses in January, bad news is speed-of-heat....

Glad that you had a good time at Yorkdale (did you take the time to go across the street to Efston Scientific (the place with the telescope on the roof) -- more toys for techie boys....
