I fell under the clean fingernails from CA sealant.[sm=bananahead.gif]

When your freind who owns a hobby shop comes over to work in your shop and says "Dude you have your own hobby shop why do you keep bugging me?"

~ 3/4 of your bedroom is your r/c workshop (guilty)
~ Even the 1/4 of your bedroom which is allocated to sleeping has something to do with r/c in it.
~ you spend all day on r/c forums (guilty)
~ youve given up on finding a girlfriend because they use up your r/c money...
~ Youre 15 years old and own 5 r/c cars, one of them gas, one siting on the shelf waiting for the day you can afford parts for it, that will be the day you stop buying nitro fuel.

Your R/C hauler has 70,000 miles on the spark plugs but you change glow plugs after every run.
You don't own any clothing that doesn't have fuel stains or CA on them.
None of your T-shirts aren't logoed with some sort of R/C stuff.
You shop for a new bigger ride that has room for all of your R/C gear and possible new purchases.
The Hobby Shop receipts get "lost" on the way home so your wife can't see how much you really spent!
I've answered yes, that's me to almost every posting in this thread................

Default RE: Youre addicted to RC, when..

these may have been said before:

You have picked up severe airframe icing on at least one occasion.
You have experienced carburetor icing on at least one occasion.
You have hosted a fun-fly when it is so cold out that one contest event is simply to see who can start their engines.
You have to maintain your airplane status and gripe sheets on computer.
If you worked feverishly in all your free time it would take more than three years to clear your backlog of kits.
The winds are 45 knots at dead 90 degrees to the runway, but you do the show anyway.
The visibility varies from 300 feet to 1/4 mile in fog and you do the show anyway,
You hold a fun fly where 13 crashes occur, and there were only 6 pilots registered.
You spend more than 150 man-hours craving a runway and spectator area out of a rough pasture to hold an 8 hour show.
You hold a demo show for the council officials and surrounding community, where you have to use guys with blankets to stop the models on landing, because the little patch near the future field site will only allow takeoffs and landing from one end of the field.
You haul a thousand pounds of waterlogged scrap carpet to make a patchwork runway, because the beach is the only spot where they could put your show.
You think that flying your floatplane in close formation with the speedboat you are riding in, "might be kinda cool".
You actually do know how to land in the troughs, when the wave heights exceed one foot.
The staff at Anglia Models recognise your voice on the phone and know you by name. (and you know all of theirs, too).
You have pictures of your models in your office, but not your fiancée.
Your idea of relaxing is flying alone at the field, with a drink in one hand and a cigarette in the other and your toes on the sticks.
You host a fun-fly called "The Eliminator".
You have more than 100 board-feet of balsa in your shop.
You have engines in boxes that you bought new for projects and are now out of production more than 5 years.

when you try to explain the concept of flight to your nephew and he is only 3 years old.

when you risk catching the pneumonia because you already have a cold and you are flying in 30 degree temps.

when your hands are numbing up as you practice your barrel rolls

when you stop at every hobby shop you pass while working even though you dont need anything

when you wake up at 3:00 am to get to the field to beat traffic and you can't even get out of bed to make it to work on time.

when the first thing you smell getting into your car is glow fuel.

when you mistake the beer in your hand for a new engine you have been contemplating on buying
