Quoted from mwong168:
Are RC planes as expensive to maintain and repair as RC nitro powered cars?
If you crash it - worse... I have 2 planes (nitro), one truck (nitro) and 4 boats (1 nitro, one electric and 2 gas). All 3 tap me out about the same. I spend less on the planes then the boats or cars if things go "good". But one bad landing and I'm back to par with the truck/boats. Check out RC jets, now that is $$$.
Back on topic - I'm considering selling/trading my 02 mustang for a couple nice pins or a MM.
