When every household purchase you make, you have a tendency to relate it's value in how many planes/ RC stuff you could buy!

....New kitchen dinette set. $588
>>>>hhhhhmmmmm $588 would be enough for all but the throttle and choke servo in my new cap.

.....Phone bill $94
>>>>>hhhhmmmmm $94 would cover the HD servo arms and titanium push rods.

(The saddest part is the above examples are true and just what I was thinking when shopping for the dinette and seeing the phone bill...........I need help)

.........Mark
