When we lived in Colorado, we stopped by a RC Park inside a State Park/Reservoir. Seeing these guys fly their planes around was pretty cool. We thought about getting one, but didn't do it until we moved to North Carolina and wife bought me a small RC plane for Christmas. There was really no where to fly the thing where we lived, and besides that, the controls/construction of the plane looked too complicated for me. I wound up giving it to a Maintenance Man for his older son. After to moving here to Florida, my wife bought me an RC Helicopter that I can fly around our living room. I've gotten pretty darn good controlling it. It shoots plastic missiles and I (accidentally shot one at my wife's back one time). They are very small and didn't hurt her at all, but did stun her. I use to have a Manager years ago that turned his entire backyard into a RC Race Car track. It was pretty cool until he got tired of it and tore it down. One thing I do know, and have found out, some RC things are pretty darn sophisticated and expensive!
