Better here than in the Micro/Indoor forum, remember when the original X-Twin and AA Bipes first started filtering in? There were so many threads they created this Micro RTF forum to deal with them all In fact, this forum looks much like the Micro/Indoor forum did when the Bipes took over...it'll calm down eventually, I think

RE toys vs not, I've always thought of it as, toy=cheap, non-serviceable, "throw-away" vs not-a-toy=more quality, replacement parts, "hobby grade." I think the older technology planes like the AA and others will still have a good place in the hobby, they're cheap and make for great ways to first learn to fly, and for us tinkerers and builders, the parts are worth the money alone.

That being said, the PZ planes and electronics have really opened the door for micro RC. Sure, you could've had a micro 4 channel plane of your own 5 years ago, but it didnt cost 100 bucks!! Either way, I think I'll still fly my old bipe now and then
