Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

looks great and sharp paint job. I raced gas rc cars but had to leave it behind during some moves. It still waits for me...as the grease is eating up the engine

Re: hobbybots (non musical hobbies)

the older I get, the less time/energy/motivation there is for hobbies.

other than music I still play roller/rink hockey (not really hobby maybe)

I did stage acting for many years but then I had enough (actors egos tend to annoy me and they're usually hyperactive).

Music is a beautiful opiate, if you don't take it too seriously.

@ratsnake: no paint, it's all heat activated shrinking foil.
finished the plane yesterday evening; the little 7.5cc engine sounded great smile
first flying lesson this afternoon!

Man that's really cool. I wish I could do that sort of stuff, unfortunately I can't so I won't even try. My dad used to build and fly model planes and choppers (and boats and cars, but mostly planes) when I was a child, I loved hanging out in his woodshop and walking with him to some field to fly that thing . I wonder why he gave up on it, it's really a cool hobby to have.

@ jay: my car only holds 1 extra person and the seat is already full. maybe you can get F to go that day; he wanted to come watch too. (and is already thinking of making an rc nazi ufo)
and i won't have my brevet by then so i won't bother practicing flying that day..
