“I am a 65+ yr. old arthritic. My condition is severe. Mobility is key to my survival. I have recently, in the last 2 yrs., gotten into RC flying. I am captivated by it. I can only fly on Sundays, at this point. MANY Sundays I am sitting in my recliner and could easily sit there all day as it is less painful. The RC hobby is my motivation to get out of my recliner and go to the field. I walk more at the field than I normally would, due to the pain factor. If it weren’t for the RC hobby, I would have no reason to get out of my recliner and would soon end up in a three wheeler, like my dad. I need to fly for my physical well being and my mental well being. I live alone and my last dog has just passed away. Without being able to go to the field to fly, I would not have the motivation to move, nor would I have the camaraderie I get from my fellow club members. Please don’t let the government take this away from me. I owe you guys a lot, cause a review you did on a Horizon Hobby plane got me pointed in the right direction. I got Pro Status in less than a year with them. Yup. Down the rabbit hole. Thank you so much for all you have done, what you’re currently doing and what you are doing to save our hobby! Capn Pete”
