Time for some soul searching fun... Wink

Say you just won a whole bunch of money that you are free to spend (at least a chunk of it) on RC stuff...

What is the ONE item that you will get (RC related) ?  In other words, what is your foremost wish list item (that is not inexpensive) !

Seriously? I would end up owning Hobbyking!

Jokes apart, I would love to get myself a giant scale Focke Wulf FW 190 D with the most expensive radio around. Drool

when I am sober my heli is drunk..



assuming that I just won 10 crores!
the first and foremost thing that I would do is, buy a huge plot of land, level it off and build a completely advanced aerodrome, airport, helipad and a refueling center for RC stuff only..Which will also house cottages for out of state fliers and forum members. Open up a training center for interested and enthusiast hobbyists..
And buy a Suzuki GSX 600 Grin

I was looking for more of the VC and Ashish type of replies Wink  Not the "I want to solve world hunger" type from controlflyer ! Giggle

Personally, I would get into turbine flight (I have to admit that it is not too much out of my league as is, but easy money would be a great motivation!)

JR 11x is an interesting product.  A lot of JR users got really upset because just before it came out, many went out and bought the JR 12X for double the price !  Then the 11X came out with better features and half the price, immediately causing the 12Xs take a huge dent in resale value ! 

There was quite a bit of discussion on the forums about this.

It depends on the individual.  There are a lot of people for whom $750 is a significant deal (especially in the Indian context). Plus, even for people who can afford it, the easy money would be a great motivation to get whatever IT is that they want immediately !

In short, this question is more about what will be your next significant purchase, and less about the price of the item itself !

How big is the bunch going to be?
because members now are going to open their wish baskets and believe me we as individuals have the weirdest RC stuff in our minds, mine was weird enough for a start!
Ok! lets give that bunch a significant number, shall we?

Firstly, I would get a full sized E Revo Brushless, with its lipos etc.. Then I would get its little brother the Mini E Revo. RealFlight G5, Spektrum DX3S, E-Flite Blade CP for learning in real life, move on to a T-Rex 600.. Then will build a small trainer foamy, and finally move on to a 4-Site!! Drool Drool

L'enfant Terrible du RCIndia



But seriously, someday I DO wish to own the largest, best stocked toy / model shop in India. That has been a long cherished dream. A shop that will cater for all hobbyists starting from Basic Chuck Gliders to Turbine powered models. Comprehensive stocks of aero, submarines, ships, trains, cars, scale plastic kits, modelling supplies, electronics - you name it. If there is one thing that I want to achieve in my life, then this is it. Hobbyking + Towerhobbies + Toys R us+ Hamleys all rolled into one!

A dream remains a dream till you add a deadline to it. Then, and only then, does it become a GOAL. Dreams die hard, Goals can achieved.

Even if I do have a deadline, I do not wish to disclose it here.............. Smiley
