im a 29 year old RC tragic. have tried over the years to collect everything but think that boats are my calling. the first plane i had i drove into the side of a neighbours shed, and it didnt end well. have a xt terminator 2 nitro buggy that is lots of fun. tried a 3 channel heli, that im pretty good with, and added a camera for some awesome video footage (until the palm tree got in the way).
as for boats, i started with an academy hobby f1 tunnel hull electric. its nice but not very quick. when i looked at boosting performance, it was too expensive and would be better to start again.
then i met keith down at bonython park whilst waiting for some wedding photos. he let me play with his (a hartley i think it was), and i got the bug for sail boats. it was so relaxing. no stress about hitting things etc. spent the whole wedding reception on my phone looking for a model. next night, boat was ordered. waiting game begun. arrived in the mail, and assembled in no time. now itching to get to the lake!
