My dad will be 82 in August. He's been flying helis since 1972. He started modeling in the late 1930's with a free flight powered glider my grandfather found in the woods on a hunting trip.

He just finished converting his 40 year old Kavan jet ranger to electric power. I want him to stay active in rc to keep his mind sharp.

I so badley want a Road glide CVO but just can`t see paying $32K for a used or $40K for a new. Just insane the cost.

but sure is a pretty bike.

Mike 0251, i regret not trying road racing in my younger years, now i can afford it not worth going down and getting all busted up now at 54.

I`ve taked a few spills on my crotch rockets on the streets and lucky to walk away.

Not walking with a limp or a cane from a bike crash.

At least not yet.

I am only 50 years old and although I have been flying all kinds of model aircraft sine my late teens, I am a relative newbie to helis.

That being said, one of my flying mates is 87 years old! He has been flying model aircraft since his early teens in the 1930ies. He is still going strong, flying a couple of times every week all the year round. I am impressed by his coordination, eyesight and general good health.

WOW, get him to join RR, he gets to be the leader of our "Old Farts Flying Club" He makes me be optimistic about flying for many more years.
I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?
