You know your addicted to RC flying when...

This is my story i'm sure others could finish the sentence as well...

I keep waking up at 5:30am, running outside to check the wind, run back in and grab the plane, get to the field, text the wife "i'm flying", her reply is " its 5:30am, i dont care" lol.

if its too windy, i'm mad and go back to bed

When you stay up late on rc plane forums and dont hear your alarm in morning to go fly before the wind comes.

When you get home and fire-up the flight-sim to try and nail the perfect landing before you do an all-nighter in the shed fixing the models that didn't come down quite as planned !

re: addiction

You know that you are addicted to rc flying when:
1) Always thinking about flying
2) Going on the forums when cant go flying
3) always playing on a sim when the weater is bad
4) Always working on something in the workshop
5) looking outside at the weather every hour to see if the weather is good for flying.
6) going to the flying field with plans of flying knowing that it is going to rain
7) THinking i have a small window in the bad weather to fly
8) Dream about flying RC's
9) always watching youtube videos of ppl flying RC'S
10) The only subject that you talk about
11) Cant wait or get off work early or taking the day off(calling in sick) to go out flying
12) There's still an hour before it gets dark
13) Cancelling a date to go out flying
14) When out and about always looking for the better flying field

When you still have a suit on, like I have on now, and can't wait to get started on my plane rack to make room for more, and you've only been flying for two weeks.

Happy 4th of July.

When you examine the weather forecast for a city that usually has light winds, and contemplate moving there

Or when you consider moving to the country with a property big enough to fly all your aircraft without driving anywhere
