1 ruger9 1 week ago My dad was a pilot. He built his own airplanes (his last build was a Pitts Special). I have always wanted to become a pilot, but had neither the money nor the time. Plus, to make it truly worthwhile I'd have to own my own airplane, and that is definitely not happening.Enter RC....My dad also built and flew RC models. Walking the dog at a park about a year ago, I see electric ones are now available (I'm very behind LOL)... no gas, no smoke, quieter..... I became immediately interested!Last week I ran into a few guys (turns out they were the local RC club) flying at the local sports fields... in short, I think I might be getting my first RC for myself for my 50th birthday this year.... just wondering if anyone here partakes?Personally, I find drones annoying, but then I'm not a helo fan either LOL. But I LOVE airplanes, always have!
