I mean no offense by this in the least, I'm just intrigued by your post. It doesn't seem like Kuwait would be a place where anyone would be interested in RC helis or other RC hobbies........when we see it on tv, it looks like everyone has other things on their minds, besides hobbies.

Just curious.

What you see isn't real. It's Americanized propoganda. If we saw people from Kuwait going about their normal lives, we would believe that things are normal there, and the General public opinion would change.


I lived in Germany until a year ago. When I watched the news there, I got the world news. I didn't get the news I was "allowed" to see.

People in Kuwait drive cars, go to work, chat on the internet, fly R/C models, and do the same things we do here. We just don't get to see that because it isn't what will keep us living in fear of the next attack.

I really do understand exactly what you're talking about. I may live in kentucky, but I moved here from England (where I was born) only ten years ago. I grew-up watching the BBC news, and getting the whole picture instead of the "tunnel-vision" news that we get here.

I really didn't consider that life in Kuwait would be anything like it is here though.

Well.. we do RC.. the problem is: everyone is doing it alone
[:@]
and by the way.. kuwait is nothing like what you see on news.. the country is safe, quite, happy.. people have hobbies and engage in entertainement.. many people think the situation in kuwait is like what they see in Iraq, which is not true..

Still, Nobody answered my question!!! anybody doing RC helis (electric) whom I can exchange experiences..??

Jeeze, sorry dude, I didn't mean to get you all excited. I live in America, how much do you expect me to know about your country?

If we lived in Kuwait, we might have answered your question already, but we evidently don't. Sorry.

Hi hoOjoker,

Kuwait must be pretty much like Oman, a few guys all flying at different places.
Do you have good RC stores in Kuwait? Any of them selling T-Rex or equivalent models?
I've just mailed different stores in Dubai to see if any them stock T-rex, no reply yet.

Oman is way behind in the RC field.

Happy holidays!

we have 3 store below average.. one good (traxxas cars..etc)
Tamiya, Kyosho, Thundertiger, Traxxas..etc...
But no Trex..etc
The hobby lack organization..
Your best bet would be online stores like, modefosheli.com, helihobby.com, towerhobbies.com..
I do most of my shopping online, even if the brand is available in kuwait, because it is cheaper..

Thanks,

Still only one reply from Dubai, and they did not have what I was looking for, only a Hirobo Lama XRB.

If you hit the "RC Community" button and do a search for Kuwait and helicopters, you'll find several members from Kuwait.

Good luck.
