    RC helicopter flying as of about a year ago.

    For me it has been a challenge. Harder in many ways to the real ones.

    Hmm, lets see...

    Computers, the hobby side of it for me is tinkering with Linux
    RC car/trucks, helis and planes, this also leads to model engineering
    Full size classic minis, and to a lesser extend other classic cars
    Cycling, MTB and as of 2 days ago road
    Guitar, I suck, but thats never stopped me making noises :D


    I don't really collect anything as such, I just have the implements used for the above

    Reading books, particularly mysteries these days.

    Listening to peaceful music, and wandering in the dreams it brings.

    Writing fiction stories.

    Walking through deep woods.

    I'm a computer geek, and like to write code from time to time, or tinker with vintage stuff. I read or play basketball at the park. Boy, I'm really boring!

    I really need some more hobbies - specifically something involving being outdoors. Perhaps photography?

    Personally, I used to collect pens, but that kind of boring so I stopped. RC has held me for the past 8 years though!

    RC Helicopters - 2 T-Rex 450's, T-Rex 500, Blade 400, Kyosho Caliber 90
    RC Cars - Tamiya TRF415MSXX, TRF416, a TT-01 that I got way carried away with modding it, TRF501X, Team Associated RC10 Factory Team

    Video Games - lots of them, around 37 PS3 games & 18 Wii games. Play Ultima Online (member since 1997 *cries*) and now Warhammer Online.

    Of course when you work 50-60+ hours a week on average you find that time isn't always on your side to play with your toys :p
