Cost of Flying RC
(Golden Valley, AZ)
Today is the last day of my being able to enjoy our hobby of RC Airplanes. Being retired and on a fixed income, the cost of membership to the AMA and all the subs you need to belong to has finally gotten to the point of no return.
With the cost of equipment, fuels, ect. then the cost of like I wrote, the AMA, it is just to much for this old man. The dream of having time to enjoy the hobby, time to build and fly, well that has had to come to an end.
I hope many of you will be able to continue, I also hope the young folks coming into the hobby can continue to afford it. Seems like over the last few years cost of kits has soared, with all these ARF's,the completed models with electric, it has just gone crazy in price.
Good Luck to those who can continue and not go in the hole with the cost.
