    The only real drawback is that I have to live on ramen noodle soup and water now because I'm broke all the time.


    I believe this to be a common problem with the afflicted

    U can add a little variety to your diet by making hot dogs for dinner and saving the wiener water soup for supper.
    It helps to change it up a bit!

      Seriously, unless they know someone in the family or a friend of a friend who is into aviation and rc planes, your closest confidant (wife, girlfriend,partner) has no idea how this hobby infiltrates our lives. I know my wife sometimes thinks I have some disorder which makes our passion so strong, they have nothing to compare it to and honestly does not understand the level of passion. Other than helping out my 5 kids and enjoying their company and lives I cannot find another way that stimulates me to the degree that our hobby offers. There is nothing better than an outing flying 4-5 of your favorite birds with perfect flights landings and bringing all back intact. I guess being semi-retired also helps.

        I'm pretty lucky in the fact that my wife builds and flys too. Admittedly, she doesn't have the addiction as bad as I do, but she gets it. She has "gifted" me about 75% of the planes I have. She has 6 planes of her own and another kit build on the bench. She has her own account on Motion and many others. She just ordered me 12 meters of Solartex for my 1/3 scale Fokker D.VIII build for my birthday. She's a keeper!

              Those with understanding wives, consider yourself fortunate. Mine is a flyer as well, but sometimes she wants to do something different so I try (operative word) to be fair. Lots of times I have fun doing other things as well, but other times I just wish I was flying. I'm sure you can all relate, especially CB, his wife is on the lawn while he's heading out doing the monkey dance.

                      I liked Docs comment, Aviation is the food of life. So true. Its funny, this month is my 1 yr anniversary of my accident which could have cost me my life (bleeding out) of my own fault. Any less passion for another hobby would have likely closed that door forever, but I am back practicing safety first attitude and enjoying the hell out of it. I am thinking of getting my first rc boat (Traxxas M-41 widebody) . Oh hell hopeless addict!!!
