My hobbies include solo yacht global circumnavigation, mountain climbing, lion taming, shark wrestling and lying about my hobbies.

I could have asked"What are you doing for fun" but not that kind of fun. Of course there are many members who are working everyday and have no time for hobbies. I think most retired old folk

I’d love to do this, racing against others. Know of any place where races are held?

That's something I've been interested in doing. In particular I'm interested in RC gliders. Any advice on shops and how to get started here in Thailand? I live in north Thailand. 

 

HobbyKing is by far the best source (order over their website). Look for RTF (ready to fly) aircraft that come with everything you need. Start off with a Bixler, and go from there.

 

HobbyKing ships from Hong Kong.

If you haven’t flown before I would suggest poweredgliders. You use the power to get to altitude then turn it off. I bought one on Lazada, pretty expensive for what it was, and it wasn’t very big.....bigger is better for lift etc. I was flying one day and I let it get a bit far away, suddenly I had no control. It was still in sight, but basically disappeared. We searched for days, but nothing....I think somebody must have picked it up and walked away. I used to fly a lot in California and had an assortment of planes/gliders. I don’t think the ones I’ve seen here are very good. The best bet would be to have somebody bring it from your country, when they can. German electric engines are the best, but you pay for that. Good luck.

Thanks Mansell

I got started with a shop west of Bangkok called Sila Shop. Not sure they do gliders but believe they have a Facebook account so you might be able to check with them. Since then I get everything from Lazada or Aliexpress. For information on transmitters and electrics I use YouTube, would be lost without it.

I personally dont race but sail in the sea off the coast of Prachuap it can be exhilarating and just one day the boat may head for Cambodia (i have avoided that for 8 years)

 

There are sailing clubs in Bangkok  (sarin city village pool) and Sattahip

As in Thailand most contact is via FB but they are very friendly

I was going to say !!   Reading these guys you'd think ." damn, there's some pretty interesting guys on this forum" 

 

Then you meet them in person ...............  and ballpoint asks you " hey,  can you get my cane for me.   Its about time for my nap .  Gotta get up after that and watch bad boys 3 on Netflix "

it can be very stressful sailing you know

in January being a stupid boy  i chucked it in the sea in stupidly high  winds even the fishing boats did not go out

anyway sailed for 90 mins.... it flew! and didn't sink

i cant imagine losing it, the mrs would kill me it costs twice as much as the motorbike she would never let me live it down

Golf, swimming ,reading, writing plus other stuff I can't mention on this forum.

I've learned how to compile and edit videos in the last month, which will keep me busy for the next couple of months.

is there a specific software to compile/edit videos, that's something I would be interested looking at as have many old videos from when the kids were growing up and would like to compile/edit some, thanks for any referral

You can download OpenShot for free from the internet, it's probably not the most sophisticated around but it's doing everything I want. Some file suffixes it won't accept. Had a lot of fun learning how to use it.

I ran out of energy just reading your post.

 

Playing amateur farmer on 3 rai of fruit trees, vegetables and lawns is enough for me, seeing there is no ocean to swim in up here.

Swimming pools OK for me,  better than swimming in some Thai beach waters along with the turds floating about.

I draw Fantasy and Science Fiction Art, and maps as a Cartographer, to support my Space Opera, and Fantasy Novel writing. 
Very slowly, a few hours a week, I study languages using CD courses.
Also a few hours a week, I play military simulation games online, Environments like Afghanistan, Iraq, and Vietnam.
