Our world today is so fast paced at times that weeks go by, where thoughts of anything but work, the bills or the next place we have to get to by 6 pm etc. is the only thoughts we have.
If you are in this group of folks, that all your waking moments are taken up by these thoughts. Read on.
I have always been intrigued with how aircraft work and fly. My start in aircraft modelling was first inspired by my brother, who showed up at our house one weekend in July with a Radio Control Model Airplane. His efforts to fly the model were unsuccessful that weekend, but I was intrigued with his explanations of the building and preparation involved in getting the model ready for the skies. The concept of having my own creation take to the skies was very appealing.
Looking back (hindsight is absolutely great) I now see the great pressure reduction that building designs have given me at times.
Building Aircraft of any size or type that are intended to fly requires a lot of focus on the project at hand.
I have found that if I work on a model a few hours a week, the concentration required to do a good job allows the tuning out from the rest of the world for some hours. The best part is this is carried out in the comfort and ease of my home.
With no time limits attached to the project, there is no pressure. I have experienced conversations with modellers about right now their creations that have taken 20 years from concept to completion. I personally have a couple that is past the 5-year mark. They are constantly there when I need to escape for some hours. Although these are very complicated models, they will eventually get finished maybe.
Most folks complete an airplane kit build in 4 to 6 6 months working a few hours a week. My suggestion is to start with a trainer kit, such as a Sig Manufacturing Kadet LT 40 or Great Planes PT 40. Both these manufacturers supply these packages with instructions tailored to the novice builder. These models can be found in most Hobby Stores that carry Radio Control Airplane Products.
Everything required to build, finish and have the model ready to fly will cost less than $600.00 for the 1st one. Additional models will be in the $200.00 to $300.00 range if remaining within the 40 size arena.
Many modellers agree that building Radio Control Models is the most calming and rewarding type of recreation they have tried.
Stop in at your local Hobby Store and have a look at some of the fantastic flying machine packages available, that you can turn into a real flying airplane.
The finished airplane will be a way to obtain praise for your skill from others.
But the journey to that point will most certainly be probably the most calming hours you may get to spend in this hectic lifestyle we all seem to be caught up in.
Above All make sure to HAVE FUN
