Not an heli or plane but a car. I used to race RC kit cars at a club. Took up a lot of my time, almost Formula One style perfection. Checking the ride height, making it as low as I can, making sure the gearing is right to make it quicker, changing the tyres every month, doing a full rebuild every 6 months, cleaning it weekly, checking the wheels toe in and camber, building new battery packs. This RC car got more love and care than your average pet.

I used to race RC... That was fucking awesome.

Would be drifting my bitch arse all over the joint like *mreeeeeeeeeewwwwwww*

... Back when I was ~12ish.

That was fun.

There are a few people in the community who can get in contact with me urgently if you need - don't be afraid to ask. I just don't check here as frequently as I used to. Sorry!

On my 10th birthday all I got were RC planes. None of them flew :cry:
However, the interest in RC toys rekindled when I first got my RC helicopter. Easy and very fun to fly. These days they've got much better quality mini choppers for a cheap price. I get mine real cheap directly from wholesale. Got me a little AH-6 as well as a mid sized apache. Both fly very well.

I used to have a rc heli (2) and plane (2) in year 2008. My first heli which my aunt gave it to me in July. Just a small one. Bad trip! In august, I'm flying it outside our house in cavite, it was cloudy. Before rain falls, lightning strikes to my heli, caught fire and I ran back to my house. My first rc aircraft, really big, which my uncle gave it to me in September. Sadly, it did'nt fly, even the engines work. My second rc heli from my uncle, gave it to me december, it is small but good. Badtrip! The annoying sounds of rotors caused me, not to use it. It still works but I'm afraid that it might broke up if I used it. The second rc aircraft, my mom's early Xmas gift to me. It is just small sized bipplane styrofoam material. It keep on hitting the walls and caused severe damage to the wing. I will not fly an rc aircrafts anymore. Just playing ysflight

Time to revive this old thread; I've just ordered exactly $761.23 in gear from the US in order to be able to build my own foam RC planes from scratch.

While there are a few designs I intend on trying out, I might also make a little contest here on HQ, where the most popular plane (of unique design [aka, not a repainted conventional plane]) will be made into a flying model (with modifications though).

So things like the the Nighthawk, double flying wing design from AC3, would count, right? There are several clips on Youtube of foam planes/spaceships.

Fliped out of the arena, again! :(

Not quite - I'd be interested in creating aircraft that haven't been created before.
