As long as the bills get paid and there is food on the table my wife could pretty much care less what I spend on toys. The only thing she got ill about was when I flew her senior telemaster one afternoon and stuck it in the top of a tree. Said I WILL build her another one and never fly at dusk again without my glasses. And she also offers constructive crititcism om both my plane and heli flying. When I get out one of the helis she usually tells our 2 year old son to go hide somewhere where its safe but overall she is one and a million.

FINALLY POPPED IT TO HER
I finally told her... after me being so nice for the past few days. The guilt comes from me agreeing with her that I won't spend so much time and money on helis while its still freezing outside and then here in front of me is a brand new one. Helis attract more attention coz its the focal point of the hobby. As I mentioned before, it's not really the cost but more on the principle of our agreement. She says she really doesn't care.... (sure) Now I think my weekend is slated with funfilled activities such as cleaning out storage areas, my computer/entertainment/smoking room and a lot of housework.
I told her about the heli after we finished folding laundry...lol.

Again, can someone explain why you you guys are willing to put up with this? A divorce seems like a much cheaper option.

I'm with you Par_18. Marriage is just such an enormous expense. I just find it unfair in todays world where, the girls want to have all the jobs and freedoms of men. Yet at the same time the majority of marriages (atleast ones I've seen) fall around how much the guy takes care of the girl. Girlfriends are awesome! no strings financially and really its all the same emotionally and physically. I'm lucky to have an awesome job in this industry anyways, so I guess even if marriage came along I could be like hey its for work. HAHAHA.

6 months into the hobby.... going on seven (look below at fleet) and she says "Well it looks like you've spent about $1000 dollars for your new hobby. You did spend about $2000 on your PS2. How much were those games again???" Who am I to argue with her?....... I do love her.

Rotor:... Yup, very much so.

Par / Ak:... Yup, 'tis quite a pretty penny to have a wife. Just wait till you get the little ones that comes out of her. (We've agreed to only have the one we have.... COZ I'M NEXT....LOL)

Mine wants to learn to fly them.

Shoe once told me "I'll start by throwing the small one out the window".

I just don't tell her how much I spent, otherwise I will get into the lets buy "this" and "that" for the house debate.

You need to turn the whole thing round. Next time your wife starts to question the financials you need to say "Thats the problem with you, you just focus on the money. You just don't care that I've got to spend atleast 5 hours building this machine. You know, maybe one day, you could just give me a hand rather than criticising from the sidelines"

Dodger: HAHAHAH. Best I've heard


The only problem confessing in how much you spend on your hobby is that later she thinks she is justified to ask the same for her... If I buy a 100$ gadget she wants to go out for dinner. If I buy a heli, she wants a ring or something else...

This hobby is already expensive but doubling the cost to keep your wife happy is crazy... oh well I can't hide the prices from here because in contrary to popular belief she thinks heli costs alot more than they really do... maybe its to get a bigger piece for her

ive learned the secret is to not let your wife see all your helis at once!! it also helps if you dont fly with canopys very often as they all tend to look the same to the untrained eye without canopy!!
PERFECT! Just what I was going to say. Keep some helis in the home office, some in the leaving room, and some in my closet. Just don t let her see them all together.

Maybe we should all take a page out of Ike Turner's book on how to handle women. "Eat the cake Anna Mae", "And put some STANK on it"

Seriously though, just forget the excuses and either: 1. Tell the truth and make her deal with it, or 2. Dont say a damn word about it. As long as YOU work, and ALL of your bills are paid, enjoy it. This only works however, if indeed both of those 2 statements are true.

I agree with Vaigod. My wife and I have an agreement, any overtime I do I can use the money for what ever I want and she has no problem with that. So when I want something I work a little overtime and buy what I want. Of course if she does complain about my hobby I can simply remind her that I bought her a house and a brand new car last year. The cost of both of those items far surpass the cost of my helis. Seriously her only complaint is that she wants to see me fly more often instead of seeing my helis on the shelf. What a woman!!! Man I love her!!

just follow the three golden rules to a happy relationship between

wife and flying.

1. always pay cash (untracable).

2. always have your new gear sent to the office, not home (what she
doesn't see she cant moan about).

3. make sure your new radio, heli, etc is the same colour as
your older gear (no dear, its not new I just cleaned up the old one).

Hmmm
A few years ago when my wife and I were first married, we got into an arguement about how much time I spent with the guys and the helis and she said you and your damn helicopters.......

I then said, "Not once have those damn helicopters complained about you!" There was a brief period of silence and the cold shoulder.

BUT, she has bought me.......lets see now.......my last 7 helicopters, of which a new EVO 90 is on the way and for Christmas last year she got me a 14MZ! She's a keeper!

Warning: Using the above excuse will have different effects for different people!!!!!

Separate accounts... the only way to go. It took me two wives to figure that one out. Oh, BTW, the first one was spending more than me
