CB, one of my colleagues at work many years ago was an expert at flying those model airplanes. During the winter he would build 3 or 4 at home, and when on vacation, he and his family would jump in their motorhome and do the competition circuit.

At one time he held the title of top gun in several states. Whenever he entered a competition and won, there was always a huge bidding battle over his airplane, and he would come away with a load of US dollars.

He also ran an online model airplane supply store, which did very well.

So maybe we should be building cameras?

I could manage a pinhole camera, Denny, but that's about all! Wink
