Man i want an RC aircraft. But i'm too scared i'll just wreck it. I used to have a nitro truck but just didn't use it enough to merit keeping it.

That sucks. I drove my R/C cars until they died. They got abused.

just the airplane kit would run you close to $3500.00. each turbine engine runs you about $3,000.00 (for the smaller ones) and a radio, $1,000.00+.

My friend and I were at an RC airshow (it was several several years ago) and they had a ducted fan jet -- they were showing it off and clocking its speed (dive with the wind) at over 120 MPH - it was CRAZY

but the funny part was the guy was trying to show off and saying he could control it a mile out (you could barely see the white speck) and then saw it fall from the sky. He got the jet too far away and it lost control and fell to the ground.

took them FOREVER to go find it... but they did and came back thru with it in the bed of a truck asking if anyone wanted to buy a jet for cheap
