    Yeah I consider myself extremely lucky to do what I do.ย  There is money to be made as a professional UAV/UAS pilot…RC cars and that type of thing, not so much. There are only a handful of guys that actually make a living racing cars. as far as owning a track or hobby shop, yeah that’s a tough business to be in…the internet is king for that stuff now…we have 2 local hobby shops and I only go there for glue when its an absolute emergency…There is really no place to go and buy the equipment we use in giant scale airplanes, I order everything. RC cars are really the only thing in the shops in my town…and even that stuff is very limited.

    R/C motorcycles anyone? Looks challenging.

    This video has nothing to do with R/C, but it is aviation related. It’s a little over an hour long and is Brian Shul, SR-71 pilot, giving a brief synopsis of his life in a motivational speech. At the end, he tells the LA speed story. If you don’t want to watch the whole thing, justย search ย “LA speed story” on you tube.

    thats quite a look on his face… ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Bums me out that I can’t find enough extra time to do some RC stuff…ย  but unfortunately.. it seems the more I work, the happier I stay.. ๐Ÿ˜ณย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  the fewer focuses, the better I can focus on what I am doing…. damnit…ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ย I should just delete the RC section I guess….ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ๐Ÿ™„ย  ย  I had a lot of fun times racing rc cars in the late 80’s and 90’s… ๐Ÿ˜‰ย  ย hell even some in the 2000’s I guess…ย  seems like I always get back into it at some point…

    The harder I work, the better I feel, sorta ๐Ÿ˜Ž
