Anybody fly RC?

I'm curious if anyone is flying RC when out and about. My wife and I use our class A to attend 8-10 F3A Precision Aerobatic events a year. While we don't drag the planes and trailer while not attending an event, I have not seen anyone else with RC equipment...

Not a flyer but we have a family of drivers.

Our fleet currently includes:
Team Associated RC10T
Team Associated RC10T4.2
Team Associated RC10B4.1
ECX Barrage
Traxxas Slash 2wd

We take the Barrage and the Slash camping quite often.

The T4.2 and B4.1 are raced on an outdoor astroturf track and we belong to the local, Diehard RC club in Snohomish, WA.

The RC10T has been modified from its original existence to a brushless, 2.4ghz and Lipo powered machine. It gets limited use as it's vintage and parts are harder to come by.

RC has been a great hobby for my kids to learn about simple machines. It's our "gaming console" of choice.

I do!


I've been flying R/C since about 1982.



Just a Sport flyer now, but I used to fly a lot of "Fun Fly" competitions back in the 80's and 90's when that was popular.

Drone flyer here. Was flying a Hubsan X4 H502S, but it malfunctioned in heavy wind and did a nose dive into the water. I have a couple 502E drones and just moved up to a 501S-S. So far it's been great and takes decent pix. I also have an extended leg kit with an action cam mount for 4K video.

I tried posting pix but it wouldn't let me.
