I’ve flown a kite but never was bitten by the RC bug. It seemed like an expensive and awkward hobby. I live in Scotland in a city surrounded by hills. It would be a challenge to wait for good flying conditions and then a battle not to crash the expensive little helicopter model into the hillside.
That said; I was never offered an RC superhero. That might well have changed my mind. Can you imagine the chaos you could cause with a flying superhero model?
