Your addicted to R/C when you build a loft bed just so you'll have room to build models.

When you go to town to get more epoxy, CA, sandpaper, and razor blades but forget to stop and eat.

When your riding on long trips every field you pass you think "That would be a nice place to fly."

When you pull electric motors off copying machines at work and wonder how big a prop it would turn. (ok only for copy machine tech R/C addicts). lol

When you contemplate buying a smaller TV and entertainment center to make room for more models.

When you get excited anytime someone breaks something and yell "It's okay let me grab the epoxy!" because epoxy will fix anything.

When you go shopping with the woman and she comes home complaining about all the hobby stores you drug her through.

If you've ever told someone to tell someone over the phone that you'll call them back later because your epoxy'ing a wing joint...you might be a R/C addict.

If you've ever been caught midnight raiding a lumbar mill because they have the best sawdust...you might be a R/C addict. (sawdust and CA is magical)

If you go to buy wood to build a deck and the first thing you consider is how much it weighs...you might be a R/C addict.

If you've ever thought about hooking up a Tx in your car so you could drive with 1 hand...you might be a R/C addict.

If you've ever been asked "Are you gonna propose to that plane or are you coming to bed?!" ...you might be an R/C addict.

If you've ever been asked "What do you need all that epoxy for?" while checking out at Home Depot...you might be an R/C addict.

If you clean your planes daily and your car hasn't been washed in a month...you might be a R/C addict.

If your house is missing walls and you just finished scratch building a giant P-51...you might be an R/C addict.

If you build a 480 sqft addition on your house, just so you can have the basement as a hobby room.

Some might be repeats, I don't know. I didn't read all the pages. I apologize if there are any repeats.

When You give away one of your old EP planes to help a new flier.

At the field you buy 2 used engines because you know what planes you want next.

You climb a tree to get a plane due to bad landing and when in the tree you spot another plane you lost about 2 months ago [:@]. If only I looked a little longer. []

your addicted to RC if you add the power of all your nitro and gas engines, they will beat a dragster on a 1/4 mile strip..

when you stack your SMALLEST RC boat next to you and it is taller by more than 3 feet.

you sign yourself up for a drug rehabilitation class because you are addicted to glow fuel.

you see a smooth glass lake and thnk of how well your hydro would run..

you see a 1:1 scale plane for sale and wonder how powerful the servos would need to be to control the rudder.

the computer in your 14 channel TX can outrun a supercomputer.

you wish they made 50.00 size nitros so you could convert your 1:1 truck.

you go to see a RC boat race instead of the superbowl (guilty[X(])

you r christmas list consists of 29 items from Towerhobbies, 2hulls from Hydro&Marine, 7motors from Zenoah, a 1/3 CAP, and for your wife to actually go to the flying feild with you!!

you can be shown a picture of an random turbine and recite every spec from memory and the types of planes it can be used in, but you still failed your math test.

your techer assignes you an essay about what you think is the greatest invention ever and you say a glow engine.(guilty)

you find out one of your classmates are into RC and you immidiatly ask if they have an RCU account.(guilty)..

when you look at (none R.C. hobby) purchase prices, and calculate how many gallons of fuel/lipos you could buy instead.

when you take your sim to the office to work on your rolling harriers.

when you sit in your car down at the field all alone, waiting for the rain to stop (Ive done this MANY times).

when you wish that you could do a Vulcan mind probe on Chip or CPLR to see if you could pick up any hidden tips.

You quit your high paying kushy job to go to a race...true story. I love racing...and I hate WORKING for other people and making them rich while I suffer in povertiy.

...you find out that you've reached carrying capacity, meaning that there is no more room for your RC stuff because you have a pile in the living room, a pile in the garage, and a pile in a bedroom. (guilty)

...you bought a 12 quart container to carry your field "necessities" when you go to run your R/C trucks, but you quickly stuff it full, and get an 18 quart model. This after you got a large tackle box to store most of your RC stuff, but 40lbs is too much to lug around everywhere, so you got the 12 quart container. (guilty)

...the power goes out and it's pitch black outside, but you want to go flying tomorrow, so you search around for your glow plug starter, insert a used glow plug in it, and walk around your house to where you keep the wall-wart chargers so you can plug them into a jumper box with a AC power inverter. (guilty)

...you're at the field flying and there is a hawk flying around in the same airspace, and it begins to chase you around, so you give it full throttle and do a few circuits, but the hawk is still hot on your tail, so you begin to snap the airplane around and dogfight the hawk. You feel on the offensive, but find out your timer on your radio came on, indicating you should land, and you do. (The hawk was uninjured). Never seen it happen, but I heard of it happening.

...while bashing around at the Oceano Dunes State Vehicular Recreation Area, you find you quickly get stuck with your 2WD truck, so you have to get it pulled out...



...by your 4WD RC...and you're glad that you went for the upgrade and installed tow hooks on the front of both your RCs, as well as one rear tow hook.


...you get the 1:1 stuck, and think this will work (not really). Okay, and the 1:1 isn't really stuck either.
