Re: stolen planes from albertas littlest airport

I don't get it... Stealing RC planes... IS there something we aren't aware of in the scumbag world of theft... To steal an rc aircraft, their bulky and fragile , their worth is only to the owner. You damage it while stealing it, and it cost you more to repair it than it does to just buy a new kit/ARF...

Not only that. But if you steal to sell for profit, how do you sell stolen planes that are unique and readily differentiable?

Re: stolen planes from albertas littlest airport

That about sums it up. I remember a local stealing and then trying to pawn at a local pawn shop. Funny. They got caught. Brains!
