i haven't flown anything since about 2010. i had/have everything from a little electric corsair up to a 97" p-38 lightning. sadly, even though i pickled my engines, they're all gonna need rebuilds or replacement before i can fly again.

I used to fly RC--really enjoyed it.  Mostly .40-size glow fuel models, starting with a kit built Eagle 2 (beautiful plane, but it couldn't be salvaged after it's second crash), then one of the partially-built Big Stick variants (lost in a mid-air collision at the Somerset RC field).   I've got a few kits in various stages of assembly in the shop, but haven't touched any of them in over a decade; partly due to lack of time, largely due to not having any RC flying fields in this part of NJ.  I do have one electric, a Zagi, which is flyable in a large park...I really should dust that off.

I was never at the level where I was ready for, or even tempted by, turbine models.   It was cheaper to get my PPL than it would have been to start from scratch with a turbine hobby.   But somebody is going to get a great deal when they snap up Texan's turbine gear.

I did pick up one new flying toy last year...a V911S electric helicopter (my first RC copter).    It's not a big-boy RC chopper by any means, but it is a 4 channel, 6-axis gyro stabilized copter, ready to fly for under $60 with transmitter.  V911S copter    It's a hoot; easy to fly, challenging to fly well, fast, durable (it only weighs a few ounces so crashes tend not to bother it) and it will fly about 10 minutes before you have to swap in another battery pack.

I used to fly, I have some parkzone foamies t-28, and micros. I also have a trex500. 

Haven't touched them in years as they sit in the basement. Hard to find areas to fly, and the trex500 had issue with the gyro I never sorted out, bad tail wag. Probably needed a better gyro as nothing I did fixed it. 

 

Between guns dirt bikes motorcycles and jeeps I've basically lost interest.

we used to use zagis for air combat. full contact air combat. it was never pretty, but dam was it fun.

 

 we also at one point had built a aircraft carrier deck. used coat hangers for tail hooks. that wasn't pretty either. ate something like 8 airplanes in the first day, lol

    • I dont think anyone needs Trumps coat tails, they just need a strong message people believe in.... like Trump.  Too often these people just expect a vote becuase a D or R, or because they're not the "other guy". Im done voting that way.  Besides Murphy is a much better politician than Jack, the guy never ran for office before and won too...  no one ever heard of the guy before he showed up here. Murphy made this state his bitch with zero politcal experience.   
    • To help buyers and sellers alike, I've gone to AmmoSeek and looked up the current pricing for the most popular pistol, rifle and rimfire cartridges.  All ammo (unless otherwise noted) is grade A factory new (no reman)  brass case re-loadable with a full metal jacket.  This list does NOT reflect the lowest prices, nor the highest.  The sky is the limit for the greedy exploiters, and lower prices can be found on grade B and remanufactured ammo.  This guide is intended to show the current low/high average bracket price ammo may be obtained.  It does not mean it will be in stock.  Your best bet for finding and obtaining the lowest prices is to create an account at several on-line resellers and put yourself on notify lists. PISTOL 9mm           115gr           40-47.5 ¢pr 45ACP        230gr           68-70 ¢pr 40 S&W      165-170gr    56-58 ¢pr 380Auto     95gr             60-70 ¢pr   RIFLE .223REM                 55gr               55-60 ¢pr 5.56M855               62gr               60-65 ¢pr 7.62/308                147gr             70-80 ¢pr 6.5 CM                   140gr             2.00-2.50 $pr 7.62Commie(S)   122gr             29-35 ¢pr 7.62 Commie(B)   123gr             47-60 ¢pr   RIMFIRE  CCI Mini-Mag    36gr CPHP   12-13 ¢pr Note:  almost every brand and type of 22lr is hovering around 10.5-14 ¢pr, even the garbage.
    • The above is why Ciatterelli needs Trumps coattails so to speak.  It may not gain him many republican votes but its going to cost him quite few IMO.
