Another intrest of mine has always been flight. As learning to fly a real aircraft and also do the hours to keep the licence is something out of reach for most of us, then there is another option and that is radio controlled model aircraft.
Its been a very long time since I last flew one of these , but these days things have moved on so much. With the progress of technology and progress on the models and engines, its all becoming very intresting and I hope in the not too distant future I can get around to having a go at all this again.
Because of my intrest in speed and flight, I would dearly love to have a go at these model jets that have real turbine engines in them, the speed they fly at and the noise of a scaled down jet engine is awesome, check out the link to a video clip to see what the noise and speed is like on these stunning models.
Cost is also a issue with these model jets, last time I looked into these, you could be looking around 6 grand, so its not a cheap hobby by any means and then you have the running costs and maintance.
But flying one of these must be a experience and such a buzz 😉
