A good wife should see that her hubby has an inner child and it needs to come out. 11th helicopter, 100th helicopter, it doesn't matter--it's about supporting whatever you enjoy in life.

Something tells me, by the humorous tone in your story, you've got a great wife!

Yeah my wife is awesome, in answer to my giving her a bunch of parts.. She researched what they sell for and has them all listed and about a third already sold

Two weeks ago she did announce to me that she had bought a spa pool for the deck. I've a while to go with my micros and spares for my 450 to match that.

Yeah mine finally got fed up and gave me the ultimatum "Its me or the Helis"! Well the house isn't as clean as it use to be, and I mostly eat out now. I don't have to put the toilet seat down anymore, and you should see my Heli collection!! Life is GOOD and too short!

I thank the Good Lord that I also got a keeper. She has no interest in helicopters but has no objection to me buying whatever I want. In fact whenever I tell her that I've ordered something she always comes out with "I don't know why you don't order like ten spares instead of just a couple at a time, you'll use them eventually".

Women and men's hobbies or as she see's it, a fetish, don't always mix well...It might better to hide the woman and take the hobby out for a night on the town...Oops I think I might have that backwards..!!!

When we treat ourselves to nice new heli, do something nice for your wife.
Wives see new toys show up they get to thinking..beware ! just be nice and say woiw looks like you lost some weight !! Try not to laugh to loud. Flowers/ dinner once in awhile. Helis are much smaller than big ole ARF Fixed wing.

well, since this thread is sorta turning into marriage counseling for rc hobby people. i'd like a question...

Promo, i want to try to say this in a nice way, but umm, isn't it sort of selfish kind of thinking ? why get married if you want to live a dream? i always thought marriage is about living for each other? (and treat yourself a little every once in a while )

Dankar, hehe, for a thousand bucks you can buy a little 600size heli or you can get a pretty big plane ladies kinda start thinking...all that money for that little thing...? where's the rest of it?? what happened to the wings???

PaFlyer...great wife is a gift from the Lord proverbs 31
