The Who is great stuff. I've got a few of their albums. Tommy is one of them. Fantastic performances all around.

Jimmy Hendrix, The Doors? The long version of Time by the Chambers Bros?

One of the most soulful songs of all time is Janis Joplin doing Summertime. I damn near cry at the emotion that oozes out of every note when I hear it.

I usually listen to a mix of alternative and classic rock. My favorite classic rock band is Led Zeppelin. I also like Robert Plant's newer stuff.

Dead_Body - Nice planes. I'm too uncoordinated to safely operate a motorized one, so I stuck to the RC cars. When my nitro car worked, I took a radar gun and it clocked in at ~42mph on the first pass. Fun thing to do, until you see the repair bill when the engine dies.

Thanks for the nice comments on the planes. It's been a great hobby over the years. I can highly recomend it for if you blow out your knees paintballing later on...

It's no accident that my home field is one with sand/dirt mix fields.

I could do a belly flop at full speed and barely feel it. That's the glory of sand fields. Then of course I'd have to deal with picking every grain of sand out of my marker...

A toothbrush and three q-tips usually gets rid of everything. It's well worth not giving my knees and elbows hell.

42 mph? dang! for an RC car? my friend spent $1300 on a gas scooter that goes 55+ on street, about 50-55 on dirt i'm guessing.

IMO, $1300 is kind of a waste on a gas scooter, but that's my 2.

EXWP, yeah, it's a "wind-up" deal. But other than for a short test I don't wind by hand. The model uses a motor made from about 20 feet of special rubber strip we buy. The ends are tied to make a loop and the loop is then folded over on itself 4 to 5 times to make a fairly heavy multistrand motor. To wind these sort of models we use a stooge to anchor the model with a pin through a hollow tube rear anchor and then one of the old hand crand hand drills modified to be a winder by adding a longer handle and swapping the chuck for a wire hook.

Seems like every hobby has it's little bit of specialty tech. These stick and tissue paper models are just one more variety of them.

Greatful Dead is another great band. I'm not enough of a fan to qualify as a Dead-head but the volume gets turned up a couple of notches when they come on the radio.

Not a Dead-head. Sorry. Great music though.

I listen to almost anything on the classic rock stations. Lately they've been crankin' out a lot of Van Halen, Asia, and Foreigner.

Speakin' of, Asia is opening for Foreigner on a tour this year. Might be worth my time looking for tickets. I'm also on the lookout for Foghat and REO Speedwagon tickets. I hope I get to see REO again this summer.

I would buy a low-end model to try it out, but I don't really have the money to pick up another hobby.

The purpose of this style of model is about duration and not speed. The 36 inch model is only about 2.5 ounces empty and just a hair over 4 oz with the rubber motor in it. I can run faster than it glides and have caught it out of the air at the end of the flight quite often.

Typical flight is a 30 to 35 second climb to about 250 feet and then about a minute to minute twenty glide in unless I'm able to find that rising air that it needs to make its 3 minute max flight. On the flights where it hits a boomer it's often been a good 600 to 700 feet up when the timer trips and the tail pops up and the model settles to the ground. Even this emergency descent is slow with the speed only being maybe 5 mph.

Speed is not the only desirable trait in this world.
