    Are you talking about the really exspensive ones? If so...then no..

    But if you're talking about the ones you get at the toy stores, then yes. Also RC helicopters too....

    Nope, but I do fly full-size gliders (sailplanes) [​IMG] There are also some RC people who fly their planes off the end of one runway, but I have to admit that I don't know much about it.

    I don't but I love watching the professional ones my friend took me out to her grandpas field one evening when he (her grandpa) and his club members were flying their planes around in the field it was really facinating! [​IMG] Ofcourse I love aviation so it's not suprising that I like the toy ones too [​IMG]

    Been flying a drone (responsibly!) with my two lads recently, with a GoPro Hero 4 slung under it on a gimble. That's all manner of fun!

    When I was a young lady my dad and I would fly and build planes, helicopters and yes we used to play with the old Cox cars. Anyone remember the Cox cars? My building experience is with when you had to use Dope on the wings and carefully lay the paper etc down, then I have used the stuff you put on loosely and use your hair dryer to stretch it. I have one plane that we never got around to building and I'm slowing making a place for me to start building it. Lots of fun but can be a very expensive hobby. I have one boat my dad built it runs off a steam engine, it is a fishing trawler. Nice boat, but I don't remember how to operate it, You have to use alcohol and get the water boiling for the steam but if you don't know what your doing you could blow it up and get hurt so it just sits on the shelf. I have taken it to the hobby shop in Marietta, Ga and the guy said he wouldn't touch it, never seen one like it, It came from Germany. We had a nice German U-boat with 3 screws, but it just sat and I gave it to a young man to enjoy. Thanks for the memories, fun times

    I was just about to ask this question lol. I built a 250 quad copter over the summer. No exactly a plane but still an aircraft. Here is one of my first flights Though this is the flight that ended her for the season...

    If you want to learn some more here's the reddit post about my build and subsequent crash. I'll be either trading up for a 450 (hopefully for a auto turret air soft platform got all the code wrote not the platform I need) or I'll just wait for stuff to go on sale this winter and buy some new stuff. Help diagnose a crash?
