I hope he does - there's an amazing world of RC out there on the internet. VERY hard to find items are available, that weren't 6 or 8 years ago. Of course, the same is true about camera equipment, my Scripto Vu Lighters that I collect, just about anything!
The model planes can take over your life, if you let them. I have spent many thousands of dollars on them, and still want "just one more".
My garage, my vacation time, my free time is all centered around flying them. And it's funny, I've never had ANY desire to get my pilot's license. I know I would never be happy until I had my own plane, and then I wouldn't be happy until I got a better plane. This way, I can fly whatever I want, whenever I want. Plus, no matter how crazy I get, I ALWAYS walk away from the crashes!
Here's a pic of my trailer:
