    Wait? ARF and Building? that does not go together.

    Assembling = ARF

    Building = KIT, a.k.a. Forest In A Box

    That is all.

    That's most likely how the end user would look at it as the most fairest way. But the person providing the deliverables would most likely look at it as how much time it "costs" them. The agreement/contract for the materials plus completion fee would force the builder to stay on schedule or they will loose money, so to speak if the handoff of the deliverable is delayed. I'd say the simple trading of goods for the service is most likely a very good "contract" for this type of work, say "if your interested, I'll pay for all the materials and for your time and work I'll give you my other r/c bird if you can build me this new r/c bird".

    HOWEVER! I would gladly build airplanes for 10 bucks an hour
    I think at that wage a guy could justify covering the cost of some materials too.

    I dont know what it took as far as hours, but I did this repair for $100.00 awhile back. I dont think I went over 10 hours, but it might have been close. I suppose it would be beneficial to start logging hours, if only for a reference for myself.

    1. an activity done regularly in one's leisure time for pleasure.

    This is the definition of hobby. I don't see anything about how you are "supposed" to do it.

    Too much "Cabin Fever" in this thread. We ALL need to get out and fly!!!!
    Will add something clever and witty if I ever come up with something.

    Or if not fly, al least go and "assemble" or "build" or "put together" something... I agree this is an old fart favorite subject. And if will come up over and over...
