I have always wanted to get into RC vehicles to wind off some workday stress and keep my daughter entertained. Recently I have purchased the Traxxas e-Stampede and an eflite helicopter. Nitroplanes.com has a ton of resources and if you look for the image below, you can find some really inexpensive (<$99) planes ready to fly and I can't see why anyone wouldn't want to have this much fun, so I put an ad on all the pages. Maybe I can get enough kick backs to fix my helicopter ;-)
