Come R/C enthusiasts, represent!
Well, my brother bought my older son a little IR helicopter for Christmas and started a chain reaction with my brother and me. I haven't been involved with R/C for some time now since moving away from my friends that got into it. I've got a couple of foam planes that need a little patch up and probably new battery packs. I still need to get around to fixing up my T-Maxx, but I'll probably try to sell my T-Maxx for a different truck. Anyway, I picked up a couple of small electric indoor helicopters, a Blade mCX2 and an mSR, along with a DX7 radio and have gotten bit by the bug again. Yesterday I ran to my LHS, which turns out to be just a few miles away (!!), and picked up a copy of Phoenix RC Flight Simulator. It's phenomenally better than the old FMS I used to use years ago. My sons, 9 and 5, are really excited about all of it as well. Now that they're getting old enough to get into R/C I sense some serious wallet pain. It's all in the spirit of family bonding though, right?
So who else has more money than sense? Or at least spends more money than sensible on grown-up toys?
