Selling !!!!! to move to !!!!!

       Remove this ad - become a site supporter!
I guess my rc addiction can't relate to all the ads I see where some one is selling their current machines to move on to something new. I see the ads and think why??? I decide I would try electric instead of my glow- it is so much cleaner etc. Well, I now have electric... and still have all my glow. Last winter I decide I would switch to gas. Bought a DL50 and the airplane to go with it....still have all my glow...and all my electric.
Thank God I don't have enough money to try helicopters and jets!!

Cool Re: Selling !!!!! to move to !!!!!

I don't know if 'Relating' is the right word.

I find most folks cannot 'AFFORD' to have more than one specialty within the hobby. The evil dollar dictates such matters to most of us...

or; as I like to say;
"You do not have to be a rich person to be in this hobby... BUT;
You CANNOT be a POOR person and be in this hobby!"

Life is either a daring adventure...
...or nothing.

Re: Selling !!!!! to move to !!!!!

I think another point to make here is the space planes take up. Also the fact they are not the easiest things to store. they are fragile and hate moisture, uv rays, etc. move on and let someone else enjoy them rather than store them on a shelf collecting dust.

everyone is different, that is for sure. some people would sell their kidney if the price was right, others not so much.
Awww crap my rudder fell off.

Re: Selling !!!!! to move to !!!!!

Most of the airplanes I've had I get bored with, as such, I sell them to move on to something different. Sometimes there is just something I WANT more but $$$ aren't there, so I sell the stuff I haven't flown much in order to get the new item.
When I made the switch to turbines I had no desire to continue with ducted fan. And with the reliability and reduced weight of the new smaller gas engines, I can see many people selling their old $$$ guzzling glow engines in exchage for gassers. Besides, as mentioned above, it takes considerable space to store these things, I'm out of room!
