Or you paint a runway on the floor of your garage and invite your buddies over for some "hangar flying"

Your Hitec 555 seems like its made of lead.

Forget weighing it in grams or miligrams, you need to weigh it by the (insert correct prefix here)grams.

You visit the Dentist monthly to stock up on the Dental floss.

You've sold off all your kid's toys for that new computer radio. Joking, only joking.....unless....

You've sold off all your kids for that new computer radio. (Hey, the computer radios are cheaper than kids, and they talk back a lot less. If they give you any guff, just shut it off)

You decide to step up tp one of giant speed 400 planes.

You can only cram 20 models into your late model sedan.

Radio Shack has a sign that says "Do not sell batteries to this man" (and your picture is below it)

You use a GWS gear drive to make a really small F5B plane that you fly in your living room.

You get thermals off of a bald guys head. (I'm gettin' there)

In a hot sunny day, when everyone is enjoying the cool breeze outdoor and you are the only one not smiling. Because you know you are grounded for another day.

When everyone else sees a basketball court but you see a landing strip

When you've bashed your kit so much that all that remains of a litestik is the tail skid and the motor

When all the major repairs on your aircraft are done with scotch tape

You wander through Wal-Mart to see what new r/c cars they have and if they're small than a Canned Heat.

You no longer think of the lumber yard as for building houses, but for wing material.

As you drive by a school you think HUGE flying field.

You watch a basketball game on TV and think indoor pylon races, WITH SCOREBOARD FOR TIMES!

Golf domes aren't for practicing your drive anymore.

You look at the American flag flying and all your mind sees is a wind guage.

You select a motel/hotel based upon the size of the grassy area next to the parking lot and the number of light poles.

You apply for another credit card with the billing address at your office so your wife won't be able to see your latest acquisitions.

You mind automatically converts every American flag you see flying to a wind guage.

You select a motel/hotel by the size of the grassy area next to the parking lot and the number of light poles.

You apply for an additional credit card with the billing address to your office so that your spousal unit (wife) won't have easy access to seeing your latest acquisitions.

Ain't it a great hobby!

When your lawn mower, tools, washing machine and dryer, etc... are getting rusty sitting outside and your car is parked in the street because all these things are annoying obstacles for the operation of your hanger, hanger door and taxiway into the main runway in front of your house......
