Default What Will I Find?

Total newbie here, but i'm curious as to how much temptation there is to buy something, when you really have no idea of what you're getting your self into?
And do the venders take (cough ) credit cards?

Resist the temptation of buying something you don't know, or aren't sure of. Post here, do research on forums. Ya buy stuff your not sure of you might get junk did that once never again. The second part they will take credit, debit. Just so long as it's good they want your money. Welcome aboard to wattflyer and the addiction of flight.

He means at NEAT.

Last year was the first year I went. And I didn't bring any extra cash. Was that a mistake! There's soo much there!

Don't think they take credit cards though...

I can take this fri. off from work to make it a nice three day weekend to boot. Hope you folk's that are going post up some pic's for us that have to stay home and man the fort.

Well, i started flying RC about 3years ago, haven't regretted it, but i always regret not bringing extra cash with me when i go to the LHS.
There is sooo many different things to buy once you into this hobby.

I have not regretted flying RC and never will, but if i were you i'd be reasonable about what your buying, Within a few years expect you bank balance to be at $0.00...lol

Good luck, you'll enjoy this hobby

Well I went, I saw and I want. I want this, and I want that, etc., etc. But I didn't buy anything. I can only say I was overwhelmed by everything I saw. Too much confusion. Combine that with getting nauseous from watching one guy flying his heli and it's no surprise I came home empty handed.

Glad I went.

What do you mean... "and it's no surprise I came home empty handed.", thats kinda saying, i came home with nothing and i wasn't suprised, because its all rubbish.

Surely you meant, i was suprised i didnt come home with anything.
