    One of the advantages of living alone. I hav had 4 wives/domestic partners...all with too much to say abt me spending $$$ on models, taking up room for my trains, weekends flying, drydock space for vessels etc. NOW if a lady visits & says anything negative, she doesnt get invited back for a while. This usually puts an end to any complaints. β›΅πŸš€ & this is my 28ft TENKARA extendable fishing rod for retrieval altho i did buy it as an Amateur radio antenna mast for my balcony, 7th floor...another one of my 3 hobbies at age 75

    I had a Falcon but was never good with power planes, ok with gliders tho off a histart, a latex rubber tubing staked, then long nylon line attached, used like a slingshot to launch. I usually came off the histart at 200-300' then wud thermal almost a mile hi. Twice my plane was attacked by circling hawks, thats how you find the thermals to climb. We lost our Brampton field when Chrysler built an auto plant on it. Then a new wife got in the way of clubbing. My 4th wife just passed so now i hav lots of time for the boats all over the diningroom in a 1 bdrm apt

    I had similar fir airplane Goldberg falcon Nick Ziroli taught me to fly it in Hauppauge NY. It used to be ITT antenna farm n Marconi before that. It is an industrial center since. Land was cleared and we flew. Small glo engine. Next was galloping ghost then finally a digital system Kraft 4 ch on ham radio freq. 54 MHz. Next was first Futaba and finally Spektrums when they appeared. Somewhere in between Kraft n futaba was HealthKit. Most bought from Ziroli’s friend Larry of Larry’s hobby shop Commack a land mark. I think I bought his first 4 Chan Kraft ir futaba. Larry was a fun guy he even flew to Massachusetts when we moved in his real piper tripacer with his wife for lunch. How many from Long Island remember Larry? N Nick?

    My 1st RC rig was a single channel, 469MHz, required a Ham Radio licence. The single function toggled thru left & right rudder with centreing in between. The escarpment was powered by a rubber band. 4 pulses of RF to cycle thru. You had to keep aware of how many times you unwund the rudder rubber else you cudnt steer back to shore. The 22" boat used C-drycells for a small brushed motor.Then in the 1970s I got 72MHz 4-function 4-servo for 100" Standard class glider. By 2002 I was using NIMH flightpacks in RTF...too lazy to build 90hr balsa kits. I still prefer NIMH as safe, altho I have a few LIPO packs in used boats that I have purchased from club members. I am in METRO MARINE MODELLERS in Toronto, Canada...a great bunch in this club, very welcoming of newbies, great advice source

    I agree with using the term function in place of channel but I do not see this happening. Old habits are hard to break
