Yes,

http://www.modelaircraft.org/

When flying models, there is a large safety aspect. With newer radios, you don't need to worry about interference like we used too, but you never know when you might loose power or several other factors. It can be dangerous to fly overhead of other people and property. If you get a chance, look for a model field near you, and go check it out. Just like RV's there are a lot of great people that you can talk to and learn. If you get hooked, its one of the most relaxing, but expensive hobbies you will ever get into.

Your welcome. The nice thing about those quad rotors, they are pretty easy to fly, and nice and stable from the few I have seen. Another nice thing is the price of batteries are so cheap now, you can't help but fly electric. When Li-Po and Li-On batteries came out, it was over $100.00 for a single pack you might fly 8 minutes with, now you can pick them up for $7.00 and twice the capacity.

I think you are right. The price was not that bad for the value model too.

Where are you getting LiPo packs for $7? I run 6 cell 7.2v 5000maH LiPo in my Stadium and SC Trucks. I am certainly paying more than $7 for them...maybe $7/cell.

But you are right, nitro is out for RC. With Brushless motors and LIPO battery packs I can smoke my old NITRO cars. Plus I don't have to tear apart engines all the time and it's so much quieter.
