Does anyone on this forum fly any type of radio controlled aircrafts?
I'm flying a lama v4 and I am currently building a quite big electric rc plane.

Here is my lama. Feel free to ask questions about it.

And here is the plane. So far it's just a big ass wing but I'm going to add some stuff to it. This is my first homemade aircraft so I don't know to much. But If anyone has experience in working with Styrofoam I would like to know how i should coat it.

When I was about 7, my dad bought 2 planes that looked like this Posted Image but with blue stripes.
One went to my uncle and the other to his best friend.
I was not allowed to even look at the damn things...
About 3 years ago, my uncle gave his to me, and it's been stored away in the basement since.

If I ever go into flying RC crafts, I'd do the same thing I did with RC cars. Buy the mini versions so I can bring them anywhere and play (I had Tomy's "BitChar-G" years before Radio Shack came out with their "Zip-Zaps").
Anyways I'd go for these:

Mini RC Choppers

The best thing about those auctions, since the people sell them in the crapload, you can just put the smallest bid, and no one will compete with you, they'll just wait for the next ending auction that will end in... 3 minutes?

Nice. Those planes are sweet because you can crash it repeatedly and not damage it. I rammed mine straight into the ground on full throttle several times.

Do it then :D If it flies good it's a good toy, If it flies poorly it's a good target. And if it doesn't fly at all you can probably throw it pretty far.

OFF TOPIC: I hate how 5 year olds that think that they are "cool" because they make fun of jews and "think" that they "know" about Anti-semitic beliefs. Some of my best friends are jewish and seriously it isn't funny to make fun of them... They are humans just like all of us and there is no reason to make jokes of their beliefs or religions.

ON TOPIC: I plan on buying a very expensive plane, Possibly something Like This. or maybe a stunt type prop plane... Don't plan on spending more than say 500 dollars but that is plenty of money for a good plane...

I don't think he's making fun of Jews, did you read his quote? He's a Jew too, so I doubt he's an anti-semite. That doesn't make his post any less retarded, but I don't think he's a bigot.

Yeah I misread it wrong but even more the contrary, he sounds even more retarded now making fun of his own race... I don't know whats going on with youth these days..

I can't quite figure out how he knew either, but my guess is that some schools don't get Rosh Hashana but Jews take it off anyway, and he must go to one of those schools.

Any RC for me, I probably get bored of it if I can not modify it in some way. I resently bought one of those 180mm mini helicopters for my little cousin for his B-Day. Since its not until the end of the month, I opened it up and started having fun. Its a nice toy, but like I said, in a month, it'll stop.
I love imports.

Building from scratch is even more fun then modifying stuff. But it requires a little more experience.
