Had another negative encounter, it's been a few years since the last one, just an uneducated ******, going on about drones being illegal yada yada yada.    :-/
Still that didn't spoil my flying time, had an absolute blast  ~~

DB that just means you have shed loads of props in the first place ;-)

Previous topic - Next topic


Besides Multitotors I fly Planes and sometimes helis, also have an interest in computers (mainly Linux) and have a jam occasionally with my Guitars and amps.
Dunno how I manage to fit it all in, especially now that I';ve taken up forums as well!!!
Oh forgot to add, I also like Real ales, sometimes a bit too much  :whistling:
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


I think sometimes it would be quicker to list what I';m no into. I am keen on all things rc but mostly cars. I until I recently moved to London race v12 mardave at club level weekly. I have helis and obviously quadcopter. I fly kites and plan to get a buggy for the beach this summer. I';m a keen on photography. I do a fair bit of cycling and own moi rain bikes road bikes and a tandem. I';m also always messing about with computers. I dig out the arduino and box of various electronic components on a regular basis. I do a bit of djing and put on a handful of parties a year here in London and in Liverpool. Although that had quiet recently. I could go on but they';re my main interests.
Tunrnigy Talon Tri, TBS Discovery, TBS Discovery PRO, Spnky 250 Mini, EZUHF, EZOSD



I only have one hobby .....

Ice skating, photography, heli';s, computers, archery, unicycle, used to do warhammer and table top wargaming too until last month

Boating (mostly rag-n-stick these days), radio, electronics of all kinds but mostly digital and photography (anything, but lighthouses especially).

Hoping to do more flying off this if we ever get a summer!

Yup, night flying is great fun! Some peoples faces crack me up when they see what';s going on! Must get a flying wing this year - great with loads of LED strip on them, lots of choice out there now or perhaps a home brew one?
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!


My main hobby is Airsoft (actually, it';s more like a second job for me). I got interested in quads as a way of adding something more to the game but now I';m hooked on this as well :laugh:

If like most people you don';t know what Airsoft is then have a look here www.cerberusairsoft.co.uk

Rappy Freak

I still fly helis a little, but spending more time flying FPV now.  Am getting back into messing with RC cars again as my son loves them  :whistling:
SkyNet shall rise!!!!!!


  • Clay pigeon shooting

    1/8 scale nitro buggy racing

    COD MW3


    Mountain biking


Photography, military vehicles, bit of graphic design:

Take two!

Main hobby I have, if it qualifies, is family. I';ve got 3 grown up kids with 4 grandkids between them (grand kids in all senses). I spend a fair bit of spare time helping to run and overhaul 110+ ton kettles on the NYMR. I';m very much a techno-geek and into many things shiny  :laugh:  Oh look, whats that.....

I used to keep bees until I developed a serious allergy to the stings.  :angry: Then I spotted quads...  :smiley:

I have a small collection of steam models - which I don';t use, just admire! Shame on me. ;)

As for what';s next.... :hmm:

Looking over the posts above I am almost ashamed to say Sea Fishing. Very relaxing and If you do manage to catch some thing you get to eat it as well double hit.




dont grow up,just buy bigger toys!!!!


How about some p***ing up the wall: Well off topic I suppose.
Bigest Fish 30 lb ish cod off the Gantocks light Firth of Clyde Feb 1968, said ish as it was filleted and bagged before II got close to a pair of scales.
Most fish about 4 stone of codling off Whitby June 2009, all taken on feathers.
Best fish 10 lb Bass Solent 2008 Could be more precise about the exact location, but then I would have to kill you.
Recent best 16 ld Cod off Whitby Feb 2013.
Best Off the beach 1 ld flounder Whitby Dec 2012.

Not that good but every one tasted great.




well for me the RC flying has taken over my last hobby
I retired from being a volunteer fireman after 27 years service it had taken over all my spare time
I was a national competition judge and a national volunteer rep for health n safety also a serious harm accident investigator and to top off the list an past  provincial president which involved traveling round to brigade functions and handing out service medals
So on top of all that I still had a full time job and also do all my own brigade stuff and turnout to calls
so two years ago decided it was time to enjoy some of my own time (as im not young anymore) and find a more at home hobby

The list below is what i have after 2 years


550 RC Spider quad for FPV
550 Alien quad (my sons now)
F450 quad
450 size bell 212, MD500,Augusta 109
600 size Huey running apm 2.5  3 planes  Taranis and 9xr  radios Skyzone FPV goggles


My other hobby beside multicopters @ the moment are : Electric skateboarding and Photography. I also liked to make electronic music in the past and video editing but I don';t have the right equipment anymore for this @ the moment. Here is a link to my past audio visual  hobby :http://www.acidplanet.com/vincent_nano
I have tried to get access again to acidplanet by trying to reset my password but without success,.  :popcorn:

Hi guys,

Well, like many of you, I have a wide variety of hobbies. I love life and always have a smile! I have the usual girly ones which include spending time with family and friends, cooking, buying shoes, handbags and anything that is bling! lol. I also love pencil sketching, clay sculpting, making amigurumi (japanese crotchet) toys and weekend getaways and spa';s. When there';s nothing else for me to do in the house, I venture outdoors where I love photography (in front and behind the camera), downhill mountain biking (struggle with the uphills), motorbiking, fast cars, skiing and scuba diving. I would love to do some kite surfing, but already too many things to do and not enough hours in the day. Of course, I love RC as well and have been flying planes since I was 12. I';m sooo looking forward to fpv';ing now, I can';t wait for the weather to get better!

Thxx. p.s. I work with computers so that';s definately not a hobby! lol
Always smile because you never know who could be falling in love with it. :) Drone Operator in North Wales. www.aerialworx.co.uk


I also work with computers, as I am the only one at work using 3D CAD I have to be an Administrator and cover all of the duties the other Admin does when he';s on holiday but that';s Windoze, my hobby on PC is Linux - the best OS!!
I think..........I think I am........therefore I am.............I think!



You left out part time photographic model from that list!


Amazing you have time for work!

Started off flying Cessna';s, then went smaller to kit planes, then went even smaller to Paramotors (now my work transport of choice), now i';ve gone even smaller to multicopters. Where next in my incredible shrinking avionic world?

Fly RC helis and tinker with electronic projects.  kayaking, Motorbikes.


I';ve flown fixed wing RC since the late eighties & FPV for the last 3 years....Outside of this I';ve been a birdwatcher since

I can remember & I also dabble in metal detecting...



I`ve just about done the lot with R/C , plane . boats , cars , tank , and small Helicopter , mostly with glow motors .
Moved house and never got into the hobby again.

Other hobbies , electronic , embedded micros , programming.
It was fast bikes , but now have a fear of dying after have too many close shaves , plus want to keep my license.
