Anyone have more than 1 Litestick - Wife thinks I'm whacked.

I had a lot of fun building my first Litestick, I always build slow on the first plane I do but then building the second is a breeze. I want to get a second stick & put it in reserve, maybe do some experiments with it.
The wife thinks I'm whacked, She says "You already have one, why do you need another? Don't you have enough planes? Blah, Blah, Blah. I tell her come one it's only like $26, how can I go wrong?
OH, here's a survey, How many Litesticks do you have? Also, How many total Eplanes do you have?

I have 6 lite sticks, a tiger moth, Ifo mkIII, elipstik, etc... I have, so far, avoided being committed, but my wife is thinking about it.

Whew! Thanks guys I'm not whacked after all!
I just bought a GWS Tiger Moth (She hasn't found out about that one yet). What better way to spend a Rainy, Windy or Snowy day than building a Litestick!

I have 1 litestick and one zagi 400x but have been thinking about my third. I want a parkflyer that looks like a "real" plane, can fly in a football field size area (my zagi can't) and is more manuverable than the standard stick. Oh, also want the price for plane and motor under $60 and it needs to be pretty tough so it can take hard landings. Ideas? FD stick comes to mind but I hate to pay twice as much for a lite stick with a foam fuse.

Er, hope this helps...

6 litestik, 1 zagi, 1 carbon fiber mini-mouse, 1 experimental foam N9M, and two walmart viper carcasses.

You only have 1 litestik? You are weird.

1 semi stock litestick, 1 canard stick (in pieces, run in with fence post), 1 set aileron wings, twin stick or dornier (push/pull)stick in progress, 1 cub and 1 tiger moth. My wife thinks these things are great since I've stopped bugging her about what my next warbird or giant scale project might be!! They all together cost less than the slimer engine I wanted.

Jump into e-flight with a Firebird(it still flies on my 3ch radio mod). Completely demolished 2 LS(a LS and a Pico). On my third LS series the FD. Looked at moth and gave up because of the tiny battery bay. I need to do quite a lot to support my camera battery.

So many planes but only two can fly any point in time. I need to collect more radio gears to support more flyable planes.

This is fun,

I have 2 Sticks and about 6 other planes ready to fly. You are not nuts. The wife says more power to the model movement. She always knows where I am and what I am doing. Am I missing something here??????? I am ready to get into choppers soon. Theory test!

Miker is right, you need help!

4 'sticks, one normal, one bipestick (2), and one cubstick.

Plus a .10size shrike sp400 conv., a 36" Ki-84 geared 480, an FMA razor in the retirement home, a multiplex teddy, a facetmobile, a graupner Fokker E.III, Hobby lobby skimmer & low wing skimmer, a guillows spitfire geared 280, and five more kits awaiting building time!

You need to let your wife know that you're just getting started, and it will get MUCH worse as the addiction takes a firmer hold on you.

Be honest w/her and tell her that 1/3 of your earnings will now be appropriated towards r/c, and as stated above, she'll never have to worry about "where you are and what have you been doing" b/c you'll either be building, flying, buying, or working extra hours to afford all of it!

Just let it take you, it may not be as cheap as heroine, but at least it wont kill you!
