US, or World-wide, If you're dedicated to the "Hobby/Sport" of RC racing...You're not lazy... More times than not, its NOT by choice that some have to wrench harder than others.

Like the hands-on tech stuff. Truing comms, chosing brush spring combos, thinkerer.

There is a part of both in us all: Thats why we are still in the hobby and bother posting into rcTECH forums.

ENJOY the hobby, who cares how you do it?
Just have FUN!
+1, I would Definatly constitute an "Engineer". I enjoy the maintenance behind the hobby (except broken parts). I still run brushed, and enjoy cutting the comms. Hell, i've bought old motors just to fix 'em up. I have 25+ motors i've never used! Lol.

BL just doesnt have as much to tinker with as brushed, so thats why i like brushed. Its kindof like those who like Carburators VS Fuel Injectors, one's tinkerable, the other not quite.
