My hobby keeps me occupied and out of the Pub as most of  my spare time is spent studiously designing, drawing and building these models for months sometimes years. It is at this juncture that my sobriety, common sense and reason leaves me and I take on a Jekyll and Hyde persona. I find that I have little control over an irresistible urge to launch the model into the big blue yonder without any sort of control. 
Methinks I'm not firing on all four cylinders all the time. 
The culmination of all this activity provides an intoxicating cocktail of excitement, terror and adrenaline. 
When you combine all this together and add the elation of success it is the best legal "fix" you can get.   

Lastly, to quote a certain leading exponent of the craft, this is probably the only discipline in aeromodelling that thrives on "sarcasm and banter". So please excuse the humour, intentional and otherwise, herein contained as I don't want to get too serious or anoraky. After all, we are trying to enjoy ourselves, aren't we???
