Default RE: ARF vs Kit build?

Little comparison, really in building a model ans assembling an ARF.

I am puzzled when many attribute the popularity of ARFs to the lack of leisure time. Popularity of model aviation was very high in the late 40s and through the 50s when the typical work week was longer than today. At that time ARF/RTF models were practically nonexistent.

I suppose one must look at flying as a "sport" and building as a hobby". In addition to model aviation I enjoy motorcycles, photography, shooting sports and a variety of other activities. Model airplanes is the only one of these activities I do not enjoy unless I have built the model.
