Attended my first TopGun R/C show today in Lakeland, FL. Even though it's a MUCH bigger scale than I am used to there was still a lot of inspiration for a model-builder like me. I was really bummed out when the A-10 got to the ramp to fly, but the brakes malfunctioned and it was unable to take to the air today. The A-10 and one of the P-47s were 1:6 scale! And don't even get me started on those Hawk jets . . . they look, sound, and fly like the real deal!

Thr scale R/C community must think plastic modellers are so lame! Me, I take my hot off to individuals that spend so much time and money creating such works of art - then risk their destruction flying them - awesome!

I salute you!
