When you start estimating how much money your Gas planes will yield if sold on Ebay in order to buy more Electric Planes. Yea, I know, I have 5 slimers & have not flown any of them so far this year, only electric.

When you just laugh every time you "crash"

When you think the only way to make your plane flat spin is to bounce it off a light pole

When you think "landing" is catching your plane in mi-air

When you think "flying site" every time you walk into a large building

When you take 1-1/2 hour lunches to get in "one last flight" ......... and forget to eat lunch

When all your friends wonder why their pagers don't vibrate anymore after being at your house

When you start looking at pizza boxes with that "far off gleam"

When you wonder what the Kv of the motor in your portable CD player is

When you know which cell-phone batteries are on clearance at the store...........before the employees do

...when you try to miniturize every glow model you own.

...when you lose wheel "collars"(lite stick wheels) and you can still make a perfect landing without wheels.

...when you can let all your freinds fly and not worry about them destroying your plane.

...when youve crashed your plane into so many trees, the cling wrap covering is the only thing holding the wing together...and it os still okay to fly

ohh yeah,
I like the one about flat spins...hehe

When walking into a large building and thinking, "hey, great flying site". That one's the ticket.

... You stared too long at every gift unwraps that has some kind of EPP foam on it.

... You wander whether your host will allow their high ceiling family room for a slowflyer combat.

... You hate it when a fly whizz-by and you can't do what it can do.

You know you are addicted when you ....

Get in the "racing mood", choose two street lamps for the "pile-on" turns (AKA flat spin inducers), pull out the lawn chairs, and it takes 6 minutes for 6 laps.

when you stare in wonder every sunday at how high the cieling is in church

when you look at wal-mart foamies and think; "too heavy"

when your planes cost more than $1 per sq. inch of wing area

when you call the reynolds crystal wrap company to ask them if they plan to make any new colors

when you think about drilling "lightening holes" in your servo cases

when you replace the word "weight" with "the enemy"

when your new carbon fiber prop cost more than your plane, radio, and batteries....combined

When you try to convince your wife that a few of the trees in the front yard may need to be uprooted and disposed of... When she asks why, you tell her that you think they are either dead or in the process of dying...

When the flag flutters its an outright wind storm

When you close the door of your car and you see your plane rise into the air because of the breeze the door made.

You turn the airconditioner down because your plane starts to take off.

You convince yourself you house is big enough to fly in.

You wonder why they don't make foam with little pockets of helium inside. (lol...would that even work?)

When you buy your house solely based on the fact there is an open schoolyard located across the street.

You take your smallest plane with you when looking for a house to see if the living room is big enough.

When your wife can never seem to find anything to cover leftovers with.

When you buy a kite just to get the CF rods.

When you suddenly notice the dihedral in your wing is twice what it was 5 minutes ago and you keep flying 5 more minutes until the sun sets. Then after landing and checking the wing you remark has strong this covering is since all of the wood has come apart in the seams!!!

When you find yourself stirring the coffee in Starbucks and wondering just how heavy the stirrers really are.

When your son frequently walks into the den to ask if he can have the dental floss so he can FLOSS.

When you volunteer to go grocery shopping so you can get the correct sort of Reynolds wrap.

You ask your wife to buy meat because you need some more of your favorite wing construction material.
