Hey guys i need help spending my money!!!

Ok well, today i was asked to reconfigure some of the citys halls computers, keep in mind that although im 15 i look like im 11 and my boss thinks its gonna be hilarious when i walk in there to fix them (i do accually know what im doing) anyways im gonna get 240 dollars for the job, what should i spend it on. Im getting a Zagi already, and ive had an IFO. Im thinking of getting an Urban Flyer that is if Doug can build me one (i cant build at all). What else should i get??

Some planes ive been thinking about:

Urbanflyer
Tigermoth (im not into slowflyers but this things are so cool)
Tilde


Whatever i buy i have to order servos, reciever, esc, motor, etc for it.

Thanks guys for your help.

Get a girlfriend and that should take care of your problem, and your money.

Got a girlfriend, at my age they dont take too much of your money. She does hates airplanes, including my mom, dad, brother, sister. It really sucks when noone gives you any support, all they want is to see it crash.

Also i was think of twinjet and pico jet.

You only have $120 - the government takes the rest.

If you're not into building, why not try and learn? Get yourself a T52 or a Push-e-cat - a GREAT first build, uses equipment you can reuse elsewhere, and durable too..

Ya i need to get good at building but if i do that i will order a few "Wing Thing" kits from EDF even though its a flying wing it will boost my building skills. I built one before but it wasnt a kit (i didnt like cutting the ribs out). Im kinda lazy

Go to Walmart, get a Wally, then visit Hardlock's site and make yourself a Wally wing ...... Buy some tech stocks with the rest of the money, by the time you're ready for college they'll be worth something

you can get yourself a flight sim, maybe realflight G2 if you don't have one already. I think it's a great way to improve your skills, including helicopter flying, in my opinion.
And a great way to teach someone you know how to fly, maybe someday your family will get interested and want to learn to fly, or a friend.

(Warning! The following contains a shameless plug.)

Oh, get the UrbanFlyer. If you mess something up, I'll send you the replacement parts. I've got to tell you, building really is half the fun. It's not too hard and I've tried to make the instructions as easy as possible. Besides, if you have questions, you know the designer's email address!

How about a word processor with spell / grammar checking? .

Seriously, a T-52 is a fun plane to build. Great to get stick time on too.
