When you feel the urge to yell out your channel number before you plug in.
I still yell 23 just for the hell of it when I am around old flying buddies.

Ha, wooden blades! My Raptor 30 V2 is still on its original woodies. These helis sure last long time if you don't crash them.

When you mail ordered from Americas Hobby Center in New York and your Comet model took forever to get to you.

The older I get, the fewer things seem worth waiting in line for.

Don't feel bad. Joined: 11-17-2003 13 years ago. I'd already been doing this nearly 10 years by that point. Back then all info came from MHT and the small column in RCM.
