Although Doug I's answers were the best practical answers (as they always are), I like the response to a similar question posted on the Soaring list a year or so ago. Fred Mallet responded with the text from a tee-shirt designed by flyers of his local slope soaring club... so remember, this is for a slope-soarer flying over the ocean:

no
radio
farther than you can see it
it gets wet
it breaks
no
$250
Leisure time hobbies

Oh, these are just the answers... you want the questions too, I bet. Here they are:

Does it have a motor:     no
How do you control it:     radio
How far can it go:     farther than you can see it
What happens if it goes in the water:     it gets wet
What happens if it crashes:     it breaks
(Only when flying a 40oz/SQft warbird do they ask): Can I fly it:      no
How much to get started:     $250
Where do I get one:     Leisure time hobbies

I gotta make one of these up for flying electrics.
