When your wife keeps asking you don't have any more room for planes? are you going to an rc show? don't spend more money again.

ORIGINAL: TCrafty

How about when you hear the lawn guys fire up their weedeater and you immediately think, "What size prop has HE got on that thing!?"

Just happened today. Thanks for asking!


Yep, happened here today. Working on my planes (why do they all need repairs) and heard an engine fire up. Listened carefully......Hmm, sounds like a Homelite 25cc with a ZAMA carb on it......needs to richen it up a bit.

By the way, I'm seriously considering hotting up my weedeater with a Pitss muffler and bigger carb..........just like my plane.

When you regularly get sunburnt on the roof of your mouth.
When you can still land your plane after you discover you are standing on an ant's nest.
When the smallest nuts and bolts at you hardware store are just too damn big.
You check out the dolls at the toy shop to use as pilots in your planes.
You check out your daughters dolls to use as pilots in your planes.
You have a box full of broken parts from crashed planes that you can't seem to part with.
You know what negative incidence is.
Flying a full size Cessna is a little boring.
When you try to knife edge your full size Cessna. (please do not try this)
When you spend all day at work reading RCU and not getting any work done.

You know you are addicted if you buy old Kraft radios and old engines because that is what the guy who taught you in the 80's had and you always wanted.

~When your best airplane sits between you and your wife in bed.
~You spend more than 2 nights in a hobby shop because you refused to leave.
~If your wife asks you if you want to "get jiggy" but you refuse and work on planes.
~If you started a petition to make the XFC a sport in the Summer Olympics.
~If your baby's first picture involves him/her sitting in your Carden 40%er.
~If your at home library contains every Model Aviation under the sun.
~If you drain fuel from your car just so you can use it in your plane.

When you have 3 (or more) kits on 3 different building boards in 2 different houses at one time. I have 2 in my shop and 1 at my dads house. All three being worked on are at the same stage; Wings and tail feathers built, and currently putting together 3 fuselages. I get tired of working at my house so I go to my dads every so often for a change of scenery and keep him up all night because if I am there he can't stand to not build something also. Also, having 3 complete sets of "building materials". Man, no wonder I stay so tired!However I'm not addicted, I could quit anytime I want (yeah right!).

Current Builds:
Sig Hog Bipe
Vintage Goldberg P6E I found on ebay (building it for dad, he used to have one)
Great Planes Extra 300S

Can't wait to start on my Corsair, might start it tonight! LOL

-You put a smoke system on your riding lawn mower
-You remove all the small bandages from your First-Aid kit because CA glue holds better
-You watch a full scale plane on final approach and your left thumb twitches giving it a little "left" rudder
-Your dog doesn't know who you are if you don't smell like castor oil
-You can't drive past a flag waving without noting the wind direction and speed
-You've often wondered if you could put wings and an engine on a brick...if it would fly
-You start up an engine on your test stand just to drown out the neighborhood screaming kids and barking dogs
-You have used your Monokote iron for ironing clothes
-You drink "RC" Cola
-You name your new pet "aileron"
-You refer to the interior of your car as the "cabin" and the wheels as the "gear"
-The UPS man knows more about you than your wife
-"Vacation Plans" are known in your house as the "Flight Plan"
-Your kids refer to you as "that man that owns all those planes"
-You can look through a brand new Tower Hobbies catalog and spot all the new items within 3 minutes
-You still sulk at the fact that none of the major cereal companies ever included a toy airplane as a "prize" in the box when you were a kid
-You buy a Honda "Pilot"
-You're dragged to yardsales and immediately start looking for RC stuff. When none is found, you think the guy is such a loser
-And the #1 reason you know you are addicted to RC...You happily announce to the family that you will be in the bathroom "dropping" an F-105.....when they all give you puzzled looks you quietly say........THUD!!!!!!
