This popped in my head last night so lets see how far it can go. Come everyone get creative. This should get quite intresting LOL.
I'll start this one off with the one that hit me on my way home from the field yesterday.

You know your an R/C addict when you get your electric bill and theres a 50% in it because of charging all your batteries and Tx's LOL

When you go to the super market and are drawn to the batteries and you think. "Just think of all the packs i could build."

When every six feet theres a PVC rack full of planes mounted to the walls.

When you buy a trailer just to transport a quater of your planes to the feild.

When instead of using a spectra you just have a different radio and plane for every channel.

Thats all I can think of

When you're driving north on the 405 and see a Cessna banking left with flaps down about 75' over the freeway making it's "turn at the Brewery" to land at Van Nuys and your right thumb starts to twitch.

When you start looking for a larger appartment, so you will have more room for all your planes.
(Actually, this is a real one, from someone's real life)

... when your choice of car is based on your RC needs.

(When I went shopping for my last car, I brought along a measure tape to make sure that specific wings and long fuselages would fit in!)

I live about 40 miles west of Longview, 10 miles N. of Hawkins.
Where do you fly? Do you ever fly at the Longview club? I go there sometimes, but it's almost an hour's drive one way, so not very often. I go over there sometimes on Thursdays, when the Old Farts Flyers Club meets.

Your neighbors can barely see down the street because of all the smoke from breaking in new engines and hovering your chopper in the front yard.
