FN FS2000 with Mars Red dot = $3500

I fly a combat wing which is nearly indestructible and will fly at 100mph. And a foam 3d with a 36" wing span that can be broken in half and back flying in 10 min. The 3d craft will fly as fast as 25mph and as slow as a walking pace.

I bought a Trex helicopter, built it, tested it while tethered but was too scared to fly it. Sold it to a marine in Afghanistan!

Nice.

I have quite a few UT BMW's, a few E36's including a rare Dakar M3, Estoril M3 vert etc.
Here is a walk around of the in-box section, I have the other side dedicated to out of the box cars.

I race RC cars, placed 5th at the nationals last year. I also fly model gliders, dynamic soaring, where we hold the world speed record for ALL model aircraft, with unpowered model sailplanes. The WR today is 499mph!

Both these are more obsessions than hobbies though.

Here's a couple vids. These are slower vids, because the fastest vids you can't really see anything. Crank up the sound! These gliders make crazy sounds as they rip the air.

Saltwater is a huge money pit, but cheaper then RC at this point... kind of surprising. I use to spend $250 to prep for one race back in high school and college.

Its a good thing we don't live close enough to hang out. We would end up nudging each other into spending 10s of thousands in guns, rc, and track days

I have a large section of my garage full of misc gun stuff, a cool (but broken) rc plane (nothing crazy) a hand full of micro rc aircraft, some nitro rc trucks...

Taking classes to be a pilot. My Father in-law has 2 planes and he needs someone to take over them when he passes. So he is helping me learn. Makes it nice that he is a certified flight instructor as well. He had nothing else to do since he is retired. So I am gonna say my new passion and hobby is flying.

love me some BBQ

what type of pit do you prefer?

I used to be strictly a vertical water smoker guy, but I have a couple of pellet smoker/grills now, so much easier and for most meats (as long as you adjust your style a little) the results are just as good.
