Hi all,

I was just wondering if I was the only one with this buying disease? I have a staggering 25 aircraft in my hanger and 15 of which are rigged up and ready to fly. Am I insane?

Anyone else suffer with this illness? How many do you have?

I've currently got 19 all kitted out and ready to go.wink 2

A mate of mine, up country has over 150 in various states of readiness. His loft is full of them and his missus doesn't know they are there, as he sneaks them in when she's out. His 2 garages and 4 sheds are also bulging!smile o

I don't feel so bad now. I did have around 30 before the spanish inquisitionlaugh and daughter started taking up all my hobby money.

Its not a disease or addition, merely a form of soothing relaxtion therapy!

You must be joking, getting married just makes it worse. you need the comfort of your workshop even more when your married. Trust me i know after being married for 33 years

5 buildings, the house, caravan, anywhere I can fit them in. I'm just limiting myself to only 12 airframes this year. Already bought 4 since Xmas, so can only allow 8. However UM parkzone models don't count, as they are in a box and stay in their box.

All have servos in, most, almost all have rx/ batteries in. been buying loads of 2.4 rx, either converting 35mhz models to 2.4, or adding a 2.4 rx, which was vacant in the model. Probably 10 need finishing, or a little repair to get in the air, or waiting for a componant. Looking at my spreadsheet, I'm approximating 2000 servos, assuming each one has 4/5, sometimes 9 in few airframes, such as twins, etc.
