Yeah, I'm a pretty serious R/Cer. I've been flying electrics for over 20 years now. I have somewhere around 30 planes (I don't count anymore) and
dozens of unbuilt kits. I fly everything- sailplanes, old timers, sport planes, ducted fans, micros, ornithopters and helicopters too. I've designed
several balsa kits a few of which are still available. Right now I've been toying with a new ducted fan, it's fairly small at a 28" wingspan but
does 130 mph (verified by radar gun and doppler passes).
There are many, many facets to the hobby and you can just scratch the surface if that's all you want to do or let it consume your whole life, LOL!
Back when I started it took a lot of research to put a plane together, but the RTF (ready to fly) market these days offers fantastic planes that fly
awesome right out of the box. So it's a GREAT time to get into the hobby
Let me know if you have any questions about getting started
