    To be super charitable....I'll even include filler. Packing peanuts and bubble wrap it in a box it is. I'll include return postage it you REALLY want me to

    When you have no grass in the backyard, own a backhoe loader, you wake up saying "I love the smell of nitro in the morning", and get letters from the Home Owners Association about complaints of "mini chainsaw sounds" coming from your backyard.

    RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

    All my posts are going to the same place. These post are in response to driving 90 miles to buy a $5 part and so on....I have read through this forum and it great! The bad part is that Im guilty of almost all of these things! Im like 7months into the hobby and I've dropped over $2k easily.. Im so addicted.. Hello I'm Justin and Im an RC addict.....All my rc's together do cost more than my cars!!!! I have broke things to go get "a new part for $5, to go spend $50. My wife thinks every RC part is "only $3-4" lol... This is a great forum!!!!

    RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

    If you have 30 plus planes all ready to go but yet you still spend your rainy days and free time scouring the web for another one knowing full well one more and you'll be sleeping with it or leaving it at a buddies house YOU MIGHT BE AN ADDICT "guilty"

    When you start working on a plane @ 4am on saturday and the next time you look at your watch it's 3am on sunday and you haven't eaten or even gone to the bathroom in that amount of time you might be an addict "guilty"

    When you make a special 30 mile trip the lhs for epoxy but have been out of shampoo for a week when rite aid is only a half mile away ,you might be an addict "guilty"

    When your entire social schedule reads like an AMA events calender for a 3 state area ,you might be an addict "guilty"

    When you find yourself disinterested in holding a conversation with someone who doesn't fly, you might be an addict "guilty"

    When someone asks you how many planes you have and you reply with "enough to need serious psychological help" you might be an addict "guilty"

    When your hanger is worth more than the structure they are housed in your definitely an addict

    When your girlfriend shows up unannounced for some "quality time" on a friday night while your in the middle of a build and you think to yourself OH ***** #@#$% she brought extra clothes now I'm never gonna @#%$^ get rid of her "Ill keep ya posted on how this one turns out" LOL

    5 thousand plus on Mill/lathe/tooling to build parts that if were in stock, would basicly be extremly specific 5$ parts

    60+ sheets of 1/10 18"X24" grid paper full of various detailed designs from all angles, full drafting setup along with autocad2010 on the PC and a few very detailed 2d drawings
    mechanical engineering books based around design concepts, 2 rooms fully deticated, plus most of the real working portion of my gerage
    I have a bit of allmost everything, except a turbine jet, dynamic diving sub and a RC sky diver
    Hardcore RC user for more than half my life, Any new addictions to my collection are usually 100% custom designed and built,
    with projects ranging from mini speedboats at 10" in lenght, to 1/4-1/3 scale motorcycle engine powered Baja trophy trucks ETC.

    RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

    You know you ARE addicted when you haven't found the time to go flying in three weeks and after half an hour on the field between jobs with your mini DLG you feel like and heroin addict who just got a shot. And people actually tell you you behave differently from last morning... More relaxed and in a much better mood. (very guilty of this)

    Damn I wish I had time to go flying each week, no, each day.. Man, work sucks!

    RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

    I was driving home from work and saw what appears to be a largish piece of foam rolling across the road in a breeze.

    The first thing that popped into my head was. Look a piece of foam, maybe I should stop and pick it up to use as foam padding for my battery and RX for my next plane ....

    RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

    thats scary, my dad always used to take a tape measure with him when he went to buy a new motor just to make sure it was long enough and tall enough to get his rc boats in and he built 2 new sheds in the garden, 1 for storing boats and 1 for building them once he reached double figures. For myself when i bought my new home i made sure it had 3 bedrooms so as to have a dedicated room for storing and working on my cars............... oh o i think we both have a problem
    i wish i got 6 months paid holiday twice a year

    RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

    This is really a great thread! We headed out RC Flying today but the road to the field was flooded about 200 meters or so. We waited ten minutes and then drove through it. Got to the flying field and it was raining. Set up the plane and flew anyway!

    Back in the USA, the brown UPS truck (Unlimited Plane Supply) would show up about every two weeks or so.......
