I do, occasionally. For the last full year, though...I've been more involved with fishing in my tinny and golfing. Just small foamies and a OS46 powered Tower Trainer.
Great hobby. Takes some time to learn how to fly... rather than crash every time out.

I always wanted to when I was young but then just do nitro trucks. I have a 3.3 TMAXX that has not seen the light of day in a year. Just no time. Too much work and fishing now.

I fly RC aircraft although it has been a year since my last outing. I have the 2 Meter gliders like the Great Planes Spirit and Carl Goldbergs Gentle Lady. I have 2 other gliders also. They are a Green RC Greensleeve, and a Thunder Tiger Windstar.

I also have an O.S. Max .46 powered SPAD (Simple Plastic Airplane Design). It is heavy but wickedly fast.

I have another trainer powered by an O.S. Max .46 which is a Duraplane Trainer 40. It is pretty easy to fly and very tough.

I have an electric ParkZone P-51 Mustang that is a foam based model. It flies OK, but you have to keep some speed on it or it will spiral in on you. It was designed with no landing gear so you have to belly land it every time. You have to be very smooth with landing it.

I have an rc helicopter. They are very difficult to learn to fly around here though, cause it's always raining or always windy, so you have to practice indoors. Learning to hover in my living room was a blast - let me tell you. But, the house and the heli both survived, so I can't complain.

bassfisher,

I love my slick! I actually have had offers for it more than I actually paid for it and have turned them all down. It is my favorite plane in my fleet and has been through any plane I have owned....and thats alot!

I would honestly not trade it for anything. It creeps along but 3d's amazingly and has little to no wing rock in harriers!

The first flight I took off and i forgot to add another locking nut to the wheel and one wheel came off and I landed her right wing high with one wheel and she crawled along like a cub with flaps....has almost no stall point. Its actually scary cause you think its going to just fall out of the sky.

If you get a chance fly one! The older 51" flies faster and my 42" flew pretty fast although would slow down nicely but the 71" and 89" float along like a charm!
