    RE: all those Mokis

    Is it me or does it seem that they make more money than we do, in Germany or where ever that is. Looks like anyone over there could afford a Moki unlike here where it`s only for a few. Look like I got to move over there in order to make some decent money. Nice video, lots of different models that you don`t see over here often. Good find Ram.

    RE: all those Mokis

    its like one Moki is not enuff for those guys. The Europeans just do things different. Their models seem larger, sound better, just something different about the air they breath....

    RE: all those Mokis

    Well the key thing is , they have the money to do it. They make more money there than most of us here. They also work less hours per year, go figure. Now watch how some owner of a company is going to preach about we are more productive or some nonsense that means nothing if you who doing the work not making the real bread.

    They live in houses the size of closests and most drive shopping carts to work. Everybody chooses how they spend there money. Drop your cable TV, there is another $840 per year towards a Moki.

    Boy, the Euro's need to kick in here.
    I've just put petrol in the car... $2 per liter!
    Just paid 230 NOK (about $33) for two SMALL steaks in the supermarket.
    Plus other numbers that you guys can't believe (but will start gettin' used to over the coming years... all apart of the great global plan).
    Welcome to Norway, the most expensive country on earth.

    Europe is in a MAJOR economic crisis, indentical to the US.
    Suicide rates are sky rocketing in some of the southern countries... Some people even selling/giving their children away.
    it's just dreadful... and I guess, only going to get worse.

    Sure, some of these countries have had working weeks/retierment age far lower than in the US... but believe me, they live VERY simple/humble lives. It's the Med lifestyle.
    Main stream Euro's live a life style far reduced from the US, believe me.
    They just spend what money they have left after paying the bills, feeding the kids. differently.
    At these show, you're seeing the RC maniacs... the guys that'll spend what ever it takes, normally meaning no holidays for the family, no expensive treats what so ever, so they can feed their (some would say selfish) hobby.

    Would I spend X $ on a Moki... or should I spend it on my families house, life style, etc.
    That's easy for me to answer.

    RE: all those Mokis

    do you need more than one airplane? I dont fault anyone for spending their money as they see fit. Heck, I am enjoying their planes and it inspires alot of us to do better or more....unless your one of those who thinks the govt should do it for you or redistribute what one has to those who dont[:@]

    RE: all those Mokis

    Unfortunately, that seems to be the plan.
    It's now official, the world is run a small group of lunatics.
    The asylums where deregulated 20 years ago and they all sort employment in Government.
    Down load Agenda 21, the UN agenda for sustainable development in the 21st Century... Retified by all nations.
    It's all there in black and white.
    Enjoy.

    Average people feed their families from building big houses for people with extra "earned" money.

    RE: all those Mokis

    Here in Serbia life is hard also...

    In summer time all our activities are around swimming pool...

    We made models there...



    ... flying our models...



    ...after hard sanding there is a massage...



    ...and at night...




    After lunch...



    ...we need to rest...



    ...before we go on...



    ...where we stay usually untill evening...




    In work shop, what to say...few Ziroli Hellcats...



    ...or...



    ...silver wing is from Meister P 47, wooden fuselage is from Ziroli P 38 Lightning, other wooden fuselage is from Meister Zero, and on the table is Ziroli F6F Hellcat... Grey cowl with ribs is Meister Foke Wulf...

    But that's not all...




    From time to time we made some happening on our airfield...





    ...or in workshop...








    That we do not get bored, from time to time we jump to a competition...






    OK, between all those obligations, we find little time to work...

    As you can see, living in Serbia is not easy...

    Plus side: glove on. Minus side: his cigarette as he started his gas engine. DOH

    Nice sounding engines. But I noticed just ok landings though, except for a few.

    @ bartolomeodias Mistake, I have a shop for making banners and stickers...

    That was supposed to be a joke, but it seems that your situation is more serious...

    RE: all those Mokis

    Great video! I love the sound of those multi cylinder engines.

    A couple things I noticed; the P-47 seems very popular and athe swastikas are either omitted or blocked out on the German aircraft.
    No matter how many times I cut it, it's still too short!

    exactly my thoughts.. if he had leveled out shortly after lift-off, it would have been dead nuts on.. I also pointed out that the landing was probably a scale representation for how alot of the Raiders had to land after the raid as well, sorta funny, but sorta somber at the same time..
