As time went on I foundsomething that made me feel better, if only for a few hours. Skiing. Everybodyhere I assume knows that feeling of being free, weight of your chest, noworries except if there would still be pow on that next run, or if the lip tothat rail was still perfect. Just coasting.

My Stepdad is pretty big into RC planes and is building his own right now. Let me tell you, its hard enough trying to get them stable and figuring out where the hell it is when you get them high enough. I cant imagine flying this thing.
As far as landings go though, you just cut the throttle and let it glide in.
I love how they have a fire extinguisher handy too
i worked at a hobby shop for years, we would build "fighter" planes. which were basically cheap as fuck planes with massive brushless motors and as few structural components as possible. thick styrofoam and light plastic were popular materials for the build,so when they crashed and were torn to pieces we could just rebuild it in a few minutes. they truly flew like complete shit, they were always too heavy and had poor weight distribution and just sucked, we would tie brightly colored ribbons to the tails of the planes and try to chase each other down and cut each others ribbons off with our propellers. whoever had the most ribbon left at the end of the battle was the winner. the matches would start out OK, and then just turn into an airborn demolition derby.
they also make electronic combat modules for some airplanes. basically, you affix this box to your fuselodge, and another box to the fuse of a another plane, and you can shoot infa-red "bullets" at each other, when you get tagged your engine shuts down for 5 seconds. but thats less destructive and less fun because a good pilot can glide it out.
im invincible, nobody and nothing can tell me otherwise
i can't imagine RC jets are very much fun. you can only see so far and that thing is fucking a half mile away so what do you just rip lines back and forth overhead? they gotta get a camera with in remote monitor feed going then it would be way sick.
I'd rather get a propeller RC plane like a spitfire or something
