    Ah yeah those tanks are so cool. The two figures in the vid are amazing! True craftsmanship. Theres not enough time for all the hobbies I'd love to get into. I will eventually do a nice trainset but thats probably gonna be when I retire but I know I'll always be somehow involved in modeling, be it rc or whatever.

    Archery! Very cool. Never heard of a recurve bow, I'll look it up. Your wife is lucky to have you to train her in helis. I can imagine how hard it is to find a trainer. Sounds like youve got your hands full :) thats awesome

    I remember when I was learning the cost as about £30 for 20 seconds , then i would crash and have to rebuild
    Recurve bow is what they use in the olympics

    o_O That tank crew is pretty awesome !

    I can't imagine all the fiddling with the radio that would be needed to have everything working at once
    like controlling the crew while controlling the tank would require :D

    The Crew does set moves the program card controls them so once the battery is plugged in they start and keep going till you unplug or till the battery runs out
