Tell us all of what you are going to get yourself for christmas! I'm going to go out on a limb and try 4x4 SC with an OFNA Nexx10SC. And not RC car related, but those Flyzone Uberlites look cool!

Treating the family to a 2 week trip to Italy for Christmas. We arrive in Rome on Christmas Eve and we'll probably try to be at The Vatican on Christmas morning. Should be mental.

If the wife were to ask me what I'd like as a present, it would be a gopro hd. [:-]

A dozen pairs of new socks probably. Maybe I'll treat myself to a needed oil change.

Socks are always a good choice. I finally learned this after 21 years.

I'm getting what I want for christmas.

An E-Flite Blade MSR so I can transition from coaxial helis to a fixed pitch. Yeh, I'm starting to turn to the dark side, helis are fun and I seem to be learning pretty quick.

I hope I'll get good enough soon to get a mCPX and try some 3d, but I'm really falling in love with scale, something like this would be an ultimate goal of mine from the RC hobby...

Foxy you should try fixed wing planes, you'll be hooked. I have my eye on this ARF for next year with a 200cc Desert Aircraft engine:

I rarely use Christmas as an occasion to buy stuff.. (why wait for Christmas is my attitude) but to play the game, I'd want an old Land Cruiser for the winter...

I have a plane, but right now I'm focused on helis, but I will fly planes too. Sim and dx5e should arrive tomorrow. If I can fly the mSR well, I'll get a dx6i.

My wife just asked me what I want for christmas. So I told her [X(][X(][X(][X(]... ... ... [8D]! Then I told her i want a 1/8 buggy roller to do a brushless conversion. I'm thinking a used 8ight 2.0 or an MBX5 or MBX6 but I'm leaning towards the 8ight since it has a slightly lower internal ratio and more gear options available.

They really do not work as advertised. I wouldn't waste my money on it. They are horrible at cutting, horrible at sanding, and horrible at being useful.

I want a food smoker, looking at the large vertical tower type ones. I will most likely end up buying it for myself later this week though since I want to use it for the Christmas and New Years dinner, plus I need some time to experiment before I smoke things for friends and family.
