Radio Controlled Enthusiasts!

OK so here are some of my toys. The F50 and the Wellcraft boat are just that - toys. They are suprisingly quick and fun but are not serious RC vehicles.

The FW-190 airplane is a serious contender. It doesn't have an engine right now but I would like to put in the biggest engine and prop that will fit. I want it to go over 100 mph.

The 308 is a 1:1 scale and is not RC. You have to get in it to operate it. I have only included it here to show scale.

I was into rc cars, but not anymore.

By dad is (by my means) one of the best rc boatbuilders. He will never say so, but he does creates boats that are miraculous. I know he reads this, and will say I'm crazy. I can post some pics when I come home again.

Excellent catch LK1!!! :green: :green: It took me a second and you could see the light click on just before I started laughing.

Bazil, when you call the company asking why it hasn't shown up yet they could tell you it was already delivered and your challange is to try and find it!

I'd like to see some pics of your Dad's boats. I remember we talked about this about a year ago and I posted pics of my Galleon.

That airplane is awesome! My brother had a nice Piper Cub (yellow) but he is lazy so he never finished it (he even has all the parts and a top of the line controller with computer stuff, LCD touch screen).

I'm ashamed to say I've just done exactly the same thing!!! First thought - what's he talking about? Next came the "Doh!" Then finally the :lol:

Here's a model Stealth in the same scale as Pete's 308. It IS an RC model (or at least fly-by-wire).
