Get Outside and Enjoy Your Hobby This Spring
We've been looking forward to better weather and some warmth after another long winter. Now is the time we've all been waiting for. It's time to get outside and have fun! Along with school getting out soon, family vacations, summer sports and all things outdoorsy, this is the time of year RC Model enthusiasts have worked and waited all winter for.
Many of you have all ready been out testing your winter purchases and upgrades. The feel of having that remote control in your hand as you maneuver your model airplanes or RC model truck and all-terrain vehicles is the most exciting thing in the world. You get to be the pilot or driver and have full control over what happens and how it happens.
Where to Fly, Drive and Sail
One of the biggest thrills is having enough space to operate your RC models and even spend time with other hobbiests and see what they've been up to. Getting outside into wide open spaces provides hours of enjoyment.
Wink's Hobbies in Tompkins County can point you to some of the most popular areas that locals use. But, it's not that hard to find decent operating points. Model airplanes, helicopters, drones and the like do need large areas without interference from trees or power lines. If you are using a drone, be sure to follow all regulations and requirements for operation. Drones are regulated now and adherence to the limitations must be observed in order to keep the hobby safe and enjoyable for everyone.
With RC model trucks, cars, all-terrain vehicles, trick cars and such, you need some clear ground to play in. Consider this like a grown-up's sandbox! Depending on the RC equipment you have and it's general purpose you will need to find appropriate terrain for your vehicle.
Flat, clear ground, parking lots, sandy beaches, open fields and even trails into the woods can bring hours of fun and enjoyment. If you have introduced RC hobbies to your children, there is no better way to spend quality time with them and get them off the video games and outdoors.
RC boats or ships can be fun at home in your own pool or out in the wilderness in streams and ponds. Children love the adventure and are sure to find unique ways to operate RC models and learn how to make them do amazing things.
