Probably still be bass fishing. Had the boat and all that. RC is MUCH cheaper and more of a payoff. Sucks spending a day and a bunch of fuel running around and catching nothing. With RC I can get my fix in a few hours time or all day and be good.

I bought the "GO" game at the Mall of America over in Minnesota. I bought that and Blokus. I like Blokus alot better, just my opinion.

I dont know what I would be doing otherwise. I have enjoyed RC since I can remember. I was about 12 when I saw the first 1/10 scale buggy, The Frog, that thing was awesome. All I had seen before that was Toys R Us rc crap. The Frog really sucked me into the real RC world.

I dont fly much :-(

Bought this early 2009 :-)

I hate to say it, much more enjoyable than flying.

Went down to two heli's.

Now I just need to move somewhere warm so I can enjoy both year round.

Previous hobby was handguns in a big way.

How much does one cost? Got pics?

I would love to own few if the license wasn't so crazy to obtain.

Benny,

This could be a long answer, but the short answer is just like helis.

How much you have for budget? What's your goal with what you want, purpose? Etc.

Can be from simple protection of 500 bucks to 5000 bucks if you go competition. I have 3-5 of them that were over 3 grand a piece easily as they had comp barrels, sights, etc... There is no limit in any hobby!
...Once upon a time there were Nitros, flybars and frequency pins...

I would probably still be doing wood working. I got into it really big right before I got my first heli. Actually thinking about getting back into it and start selling stuff. Only thing holding me back is space since I don't have a garage anymore. Had to sell most of my big tools due to moving into an apartment and now in base housing. Would love to get into building shadow boxes for military retirements and sell them online.

I will not say never. But, for me, having historical pieces matter more than actual shooting. So, I guess comp sight would not matter.

I would like to own a Colt 45 (my dad's side arm whe he was in military) and perhaps a Luggar. I love the machine aspect of the hand guns.

What would some of you be doing if you did not get hooked in RC?
Probably restoring a 57 chevy and antique tractors.
Damn that ground is hard! When's the right time to get out of this money sucking hobby?

I would have to head down 2004lsc's road. I also love to ride so I would probably pick up a Bigdog Custom or Harley.

great topic Benny.
I used to fish ... ALOT.

Sure do miss it. Started back up last summer again bass fishing with the kids. We fished the whole summer. My youngest daughter 8 really took a liking to it. No fear what so ever. Once I taught her how to do it, I haven't done it since.

Going to do alot more come springtime. Can't wait to see if she can use a fly rod.

Had little time for any hobbies. Work, more work and the little time off I spent star gazing, photography and bike riding. Playing / hacking with computers. Still do the computer thing but the RC heli / plank thing took over my life.

I would love to get back into shark and tuna fishing. Time, $$, and changes in life caused major alteration in lifestyle. RC heli's are fun, time consuming, and keep my mind busy and me out of trouble.Compass 7HV, Trex 550E
