No, but there's good food. Just eat. She goes shopping, you sit and eat. That's how it works in Paris

Same here, I looked all over, never found anything. Then again, I don't speak French, and had no internet access over there. I did look before we left, and even posted a similar thread to this one. Either there's no big RC stuff in Paris, or the French aren't hip to RC Tech...

if she's been there twice why the hell do you need to take her again?

I made a deal with the she-devil.. If I went to the Birds this year, I would have to take her to Paris, France.....

I did look into taking a side trip to the Formula 1 race in Monaco... $7,000.00 for an overnight stay plus tickets is a but much....

If I were u, I wouldn't waste it looking for rc stuffs while having holiday in france. There are lot of nice places to see in paris. I would join my wife exploring the city's beautiful sceneries and enjoy shopping with her at champs elysees.

The price of rc stuffs are more expensive than in US too.

Racing would get you in contact with real locals. May even garner some international friendships.

that is, providing you can pick their name out of the many sentances of french language.

That name Pierre might crop up a few times? Can't say i've heard of any well known Pierres in the r/c circles though

My wife is from Belarus, so I wanted to find some r/c raceways there...


I ended up learning Russian for "beer" and "fishing" was good fun though, and of course meeting the family.

been out 5 times in 5 years, going out there another 2 times this year, 2 weeks each time
