You might want to change the wiki entry for sport=model_aerodrome then. (I
wouldn't object) I remembering my parents trying to get me to take up
bowling. They kept saying it is a great sport. But any activity that
involves smoking and drinking isn't really a sport.

Seeing as archery and shooting are olympic sports and gambling is
considered a sport, you could argue that model airplanes are technically a
sport. Unfortunately we shouldn't leave people to guess which tag to use.
Right now the wiki has sport=model_aerodrome so it is a valid tag.
