Build vs. ARF

I have zero interest in building; I fly nothing but ARFs whether it be IC or electric. I have nothing but respect for people that build their own planes, whether if it's a kit, plans, or scratch. But we are ALL modelers AND flyers...let's not segregate, now!

yeah me second. i am building a starlite, my first plane built from plans (not a foamie tho). i will finish it and see it fly (i promised myself), but i don't think i'll build a plane from plans again. might be tempted to do a simple foam kit tho.

the unpatient one
