RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !



It was strange the first few months, and the family had their apprehensions.  But now they realize it is a passion that we (me and my brother) enjoy, it is harmless except for a bit of money spent (it could have been sent on other things much worse Wink ) and the sun affecting our skin tones Grin

But they do see that we are making friends not only locally, but also around the country, and even around the world !  And some of these people are extremely influential (senior members of the royal family etc).

Every once in a while, we make it a family outing, and that helps.  The field being close to a mangrove forested beach (just 500m) is an added attraction !!!

My family is very supportive so far, as the future family is not there yet (my would be wifey). Parent think that I am spending my money & time in constructive work than on alcohal, clubs & other bad habits so they are happy and very supportive about it. After all its my earned money and may be if I were to borrow the money from them then the support might run out soon enough Smiley

How it started was not such supportive with family and friends, as I like to have enough stuff in inventory and kept on buying all the stuff I can... too many servos, motors, battery.. RX/TX etc... my elder bro told me "so much stuff and no use"... my friends were, fly it then we will come to know. While I never cared about friends but this attitude that "you cannot do it" gave me the strength and willingness to "do it". Now I have shut mouth friends, asking me how to get into RC, and a very supportive family Smiley

My dad is very supportive but my mom really dislikes my hobby. The reason for it is quite simple, Every time i scratch-build a plane i end up creating a huge pile of rubbish Giggle Giggle after which i quietly move out of the house for a stroll outside to help prevent myself from the broomstick shots Grin Grin, and this method seems to work quite efficiently for me. I have managed to successfully evade corporal punishment from my mother till date.  Grin Grin

As of now,dad seems fine.

Mom is not saying anything negative atleast.Smiley

Elder brother is a headache when he is in a bad mood.Fun when he is happy because he lets me drive too.If he gets too bad,I(will) ask,"Whose car is it?Who got dad to buy it?Just shut up and be happy that you get it."

Just two friends like rc.One cousin can't wait to see my car on a ground.An uncle seemed impressed even though he spent like 5 years in Boston.

Here too. I actually loan money at 0 interest. Told my parents that i will pay back once i earn. And i will do so Smiley After all they have problems too, and spending on something they dont understand will generate -ve reactions. I dont blame them Smiley

I think "what a waste" when the girls in my "close - almost family" friend circle spend on makeup and stuff. Rs500 for an eye pencil thing!!!!! ITs just a pencil! You get Natraj pencils for Rs.3!

For me Rs500 = 1 Lipo Cheesy

Work is permanent, Flying weather is transitory.



How to make a cup of tea ? two ways

1. turn on gas
2. search for vessel Bang Head
3. put the vessel in stove Thumbs Up
4. run to take water
5. put in vessel
6. run for milk powder
7. run for sugar Head Scratching
8. when u open sugar bottle ,spoon is missing , run again Cry
9. get spoon
10.when water get boil ,run for tea dust  Bang Head
11. put tea dust , milk powder ,sugar Grin
12. now run for the filter Bang Head
13. now realize to take cup Huh?
14. finally u will get a cup of tea ....  Grin

second method.
1. assemble the following ,tea dust,sugar with spoon ,milk powder with spoon ,filter,cup
2. boil water ,add tea dust ,add milk powder, add sugar .
3. filter it ,have a cup of hot tea with a smile.

in both the end result is tea , but in second case we will have the tea wit a smile .

both method can be considered   when we  build a scratch  built model . lack of planning  will result  in a clumsy untidy work area .if we plan things before act  things will be more appreciative. (specially from family side )
note from my experience ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, Grin

True dude,
BTW spending money on something that tests your skill and aptitude is a lot beter than smoking your money to ash by cigarretes

Unfortunately, both parents hate this hobby.. Sad
Mother thinks that it is an absolute waste of money..
Father doesn't mind financially, but he thinks it is interfering with my studies (which it is not!)
Brother has nothing to complain about! Smiley

So, for the time being, hobbies are set aside!
