I got a Hobbyzone Supercub a few months ago and love it. Here's a vid I made of a flight I did today...

Anyone else into R/C?

Many thanks. That was a very cool vid. I'm more into flightsim but once when I was travelling a long time and didn't have a computer I bought a cheap RC plane. I found it extremely difficult to fly though and didn't really enjoy it. The best things for me about RC is going to my local shop and looking at all the cool models and watching inflight cam vids on Youtube. I don't know if people fly RC aircraft at night but that would make some cool videos!

Many thanks,

I bought a PT-40 a few years ago and finally had my first flight a few months ago. Unfortunately, I'm busy and live in a subtropical climate, so my 3rd and 4th flights were today (after a couple months of not being able to fly). My final flight today ended in a tree about 50 ft from the end of the runway!! The plane survived with a couple scratches and a broken wing rib, but that was it.

I can't wait to fix it up and get more planes! This is a fun hobby for wannabe pilots!!

I can't get into them. They are too small.

I fly with a little RC helicopter which is fun to mess around with but I might go out and buy a RC plane, I haven't got the greatest set of eyes in the world so I'll start with a cheap one just in case I loose sight of it  

Btw If you want to see some insane RC aircraft you should check out the German series "Die modellbauer"

It's in German but even if you don't understand it is still neat to see these works of art.
