When the old saying "Bigger is Better" dosen't apply to anything you do anymore, and acctualy becomes frusterating.

When dropping sugar cubes in your coffee cup with a micro heli becomes a challenging sortie.

When your house pets(ie. dog and cat), become nervous when you plug the battery into your micro heli.

When you dream about a "RELAXING" slow flight at dawn.

When 12mph becomes quite a clip.

When you remember flying 49 cent rubber powered airplanes, and thinking "I wonder how it would fly with acctuators".

...when your friends won't let you come near their planes anymore because you might start cutting holes into them to save some weight

...when you end up building a free-flight model just because you think receiver and servo's are too heavy

...when after 15 years of marriage your wife thinks you finally will start helping her in the kitchen because you bought that $50 electronic high precision kitchen scale

...when you fly loops because you don't have enough space to fly circles

...when the local Police department raid you on a weekly basis due to excessive purchases of micro scales and cling film.

...when you go on holiday and manage to sneak more than four models into your luggage without your wife knowing.

...when you start asking for the relative density of CA when purchasing, ' Just to keep the weight down'

...when you smash your latest bird into a oblivion, but it is repaired and flying within 5 minutes.

...when you know the difference between GWS A, B, C & D motors off the top of your head :-)

On the highway going 60mph, you let go of your steering for a second and noticing that the car pull slightly to one side. Force of habit, all you can think of is to look for your rudder trim all around your steering.

When you can nose your bird into the ground at speeds approaching 12 kt., and have it flying again that afternoon after spending less than $20.

Why does anyone still fly slimeys?
