    Default Model R/C Planes-Boats-Cars-Trains-More

    This can be a very interesting topic and thread. In my local community we have avid radio control plane clubs... and you could hear the drone of motors when tested outdoors at the local football field. Some planes can be built and others can be purchased ... like this one by "Tim" a retired US Air Force and Transport pilot...and a new hobby.

    Tim holding a model cessna 210 ... ready to fly..

    Here is a demonstration of one INDOORS.... yes indoors... check it out

    That was a good start suggested my in-house model building consutant ... that suggested how the building of "Model Ships" is being done today. Meet Martin Marphy with several samples of his models displayed here:



    Now, that kind of model ship building can inspire some others like this UMC explains how he got started and the construction process of building a model sloop... Check out this Video.... please..

    These are not RC.... but could be retro fitted... When was the last time you made a boat model...? Let us know OK?

    I loved the rc cars and planes. I had a few rc cars over the years but I could never get into the planes and upper level cars because they were so expensive. I use to watch a friend of mine's uncle take his plane down to the quarry and fly it every Saturday. Good times.

    My ex-brother in law has one of these back over in Waynesburg... They live out in the country, and even have a small lake on their property, so plenty of room to use it....

    Suffice it to say, it is NO WHERE as easy as they make it look on that commercial. You would have to practice for months to master some of those tricks.

    But it is fun to watch the aggravation build as they try to duplicate some of them.... Cheap entertainment!...

    Kind of a specialty of mine here. I have been into the RC hobbies since I was about 12 and have been working in hobbystores since I was 13 .




    Cars and trucks have always been my specialty. Lemme dig up some pics of some of my favorites.














    The Zamboni I built in hopes of working with FSN and the Pens. Nothing ever really came of it after preliminary talks.. but hey we ended up with a sweet working RC Zamboni after all.













    My NR/CTPA world champion E-Revo. The best part about our racing organization is that the worlds are held in Ohio right near Cleveland so it makes kicking *** feel even more epic.
