As someone above said, find your local club and enjoy the comradeship and the competition.

They look good fun, I have never seen one before.

What are they like to use and maintain?
There is a gyroscope in the rear wheel which makes them pretty stable. They are robustly made and all the components can be purchased to repair or upgrade. Very little maintenance required.
Pretty easy to use but looks like you need to be really skilled!

spence I just bought a parkzone champ to play with if there is not too much wind.

Kids love it. Don't know if the warden will

pneumatician I on occasion take either Model Aeroplanes or boats. (not my Avatar, too big).
The planes are not flown on the campsite but my model Corvette or Puffer has provided entertainment on site pools.
The transmitter being shared out amongst the children.

spence Have a look at hobbyking.com for cheap cars. I have got planes and still learning to fly my helicopter!

Could do a lot of damage to a caravan

If you like helicopters there is a fly in at Charmouth later in the year. Its at the campsite i believe.

devjb Looking at lgbzone's avatar, that car is definitely airborne. It could be classed as flying, and therefore a possible danger to motorhomes

we normally race indoor 12th GT (supastox) on Monday and Friday evenings, weekends racing outdoor 1/8 rally-X, then there are the regional weekend events, great fun.

If you and the kids have any interest in them at all, which it seems you have, i highly recommend looking around on the internet to find your local clubs and paying them a visit, i don't know the age of your kids, but at the clubs we race at it ranges from around 5 to 65 years. the only issue with racing with the kids is that it soon becomes evident; not only can they string a quicker lap together than you, but they are more consistent as well

any info your after, give me a shout.

Currently got a tamiya sand rover, monster beetle, txt1 and the remains of a Blackfoot.

Need to get them all working but fancy an old lunchbox or midnight pumpkin for my lad.
