Stopped into the LHS one day to get a couple of Dubro bits and Anne is standing there looking at a BIG box with a bright yellow biplane on the front, a Phoenix Bulldog.
"you would like to fly that" she says.
So we take it to the counter to pay for it, and she asks "have you got a motor for it?"
"How about servos?"

So what started as a trip in to get some ball links turned into walking out with a 120 size biplane and all the gear.

She spoils me ;-))

I'm sorry. I think you misspelled girlfreind. You accidentaly put down wife. That's OK we all misspell now & then. Or wait, I think I understand, she looks like a lumberjack, right?? what you say, can't be true !!!

After I had posted the video of the destruction of my first VQ P-61 Black Widow we were in the LHS and the prop' said VQ had seen it and was offering a big discount off another one.
Anne, standing behind me, immediately whispered into my ear "you had better say yes". SO I just couldn't disobey.

Of course we then needed a couple of more Saitos to power it, 13 servos, etc, etc...

I could go on but I can already see the screen starting to turn green

Sounds like you get the "get rid of one toy BEFORE ya get another sindrome wife" !! Mine never says anything about my toys. HOWEVER, after 48 yrs, I know the limits & don't push them. It works for us.

Until she helps you walk out of the store with a 35% aerobat, DA-120 and HS-7950 servos, she's just average.

I love my wife and hope she never leaves me. I'm afraid if she does the house, cars, money and airplanes will go with her.

At least three of my planes were purchased not so much because I wanted them (which i did), but because she liked the "face" on them. She tells everyone that she lets me get any plane I want as long as it has a cute "face".

My wife and I have a standing agreement not to get each other anything for Christmas, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.  We have agreed to just get whatever we want (within budgetary reason) for our hobbies when we want it.  Since we each have a hobby that we dearly love, R/C for me and quilting for her, this works out very well.  After 36 years of marriage, I have a 1600 sq. ft. model airplane shop, and she has 3 bedrooms in the house for quilting and storing fabric.  Bliss!

Not only does my wife support my hobby but basically forces me out the door on Sunday by 9:00 AM.

Perhaps her boyfriend shows up around 10:00 but he doesn't have a trailer full of planes, HAAAA!

Mine actually went out on ice that was too thin to hold me to retreive a ski-equipped trainer that the engine had quit while taxiing. She kept going even after I heard the ice cracking and called her back. What makes this even more impressive is the fact that she swims like a rock.[sm=drowning.gif]

Having only begun this addiction 2 months ago, my wife of 36 years blatantly pointed out that she thinks I have a problem. It has often been pointed out to me that a less expensive hobby would have been more practical such as, uh, gambling or perhaps the ponies at the track. But she sure loves the quiet when I go to the field for a good day. I may well have a problem, I now have 7 planes, only 3 will fly at the moment, 1 is yet to be assembled, and don't even know what make & model 3 of em are! 
But, I still like crashing RC planes better than any job I ever had!

After being married 52 years my wife has learned to accept me and my hobbies.

At the Brodak Fly-In in June of 2010 she picked out my nextmodel tobuild. She liked the picture on the box!! In June 2011 we took it back to the Brodak Fly-In and entered it in CLSport Scale.

The kit was a 1984Nick Ziroli88 In. WS Taube. The model is powered by an OS FS91 SII-P engine and has all 92 scale cables installed. The Elevator, Rudders and Wing Warping are all controlled by the scale cables.

The Elevator is controlled by the flying lines and the Rudders, Throttle and Wing Warp are controlled by my U/Tronics Control system.
