RC cars and planes

Cant remember where i saw the post where you guys BC and BP were talking about flying your RC planes.

Was down at this place where I saw a bunch of fellas flying their planes. Really big area where you have lots of airspace.

There is also a trail where you can race your RC cars and mountain bikes cause there are ramps and all that.

Its down at Tampines.

Its called Tampines Bike Trail.

It's a bit of a geeky hobby i know but

When you see Tugs face ( a man that will quite happly hit 280 clicks down the straight at Sepang) when his RC helicopter with a 1.2 meter blade span spins up to 2000 rpm . The look of horror is priceless

boffin = geek = inteligent to the edge of normality= anorak boys

Had to use my step ladder to change a light bulb cos i don't get on with my real ladder.

Local slang for anorak = beer bellied western man with fat wallets that hang out at bars and make heaps of noise taking away our local women's attention from the local boys...


How much do one of those flying machines cost? Saw some pretty nice ones but not as large of a wingspan as that of Tug's though.

Helicopters! Not too bad ( compared to a few years back)but if you're starting from scratch and need a transmitter, charger, gyro etc your looking at at least S$ 1000
for something decent.
Helicopter
You can learn to fly ( and crash) on something cheaper to start with. You can get a ready to go set for a couple of hundred bucks maybe even less.

Look at ebay. The guys out of Hong Kong supply some pretty cheap stuff ( remember your going to wreck it)
.check this out

Planes. Easy look at the foam kits from GWS. They fly great ( till you let TUg fly em anyway)
Look for a shop in Singapore called rotor hobby. It's near Lavender road area. Kitchener complex. Good prices and some great gear

It might look expensive but the hospital bills are cheaper than racing bikes and driving 500 bucks worth of kit into the ground
is much less painful than 20 K's worth of bike ....trust me

Flying
