    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    Dude I totally get that and I feel what your saying 100% but I REALLY don't like this dudes politics at all as they are pure poison, my argument isn't kit VS ARF it is and will always be 100% pro choice without the stereotyping and name calling , No I'm all good with the guys who promote this hobby in a positive light as this is the very reason I got into this hobby and this is one of the few things you can do for fun where everybody is on a down to earth and on an equal footing and that sh1t gets left at the gate and I totally despise anyone who sets out to muddy that up with some selfish has to be all about me selfimportant horesh1t, I really don't like the guy or what he stands for and I don't pretend to hide it
    It's no secret to anybody who knows me that I'm not real friendly towards anybody who seeks to put themselves on a pedestal by fluffing up their own ego and self importance by sh1tting on and alienating everybody else around them

    Warbird, while I will simply say that I understand your post, please don't broadbrush anyone who stick builds as an ARF hater. We don't all feel that way, many of us who enjoy stickbuilding don't have the time to build as fast as we want and like many others, I have a few ARF's too just to get something in the air without speding the time to build it when we pull an ''oops'' manuver a little too close to terra firma.

    I for one want more people in this hobby, I don't care how they get in the air.............

    Review my posts here and show me where I've given my opinion about ARFS.
    You can't because I haven't given any opinion about ARFs.
    I haven't talked about ARFs, but I can understand how someone with less than a 6th grader's level of reading comprehension might get confused.
    What I HAVE done is reveal the truth about today's man to those who don't want to hear it.

    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    I build planes.

    These are ARF's. I glue the tail feathers on. I mount the engine. I put the landing gear on. I put the control surfaces on. I BUILD TOO!!!!

    Seriously who gives a crap if you cut down the tree in your backyard to build a plane from scratch, or go buy a truck load of 2x4's to build, or buy little pieces of wood that someone already cut for you to build your little creation/hopes and dreams, or if you put together a plane that some asian did 90% of the work already...all so you can go fly it do some loops and rolls then get disoriented and slam it into the ground.

    I build. I fly.

    I don't nit pick.

    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    [8D] I'm an old guy been in the hobby a zillion years and I'll happily declare that I fly ARFs and love em !

    My real two interests in the hobby are the actual flying , and the engines/control systems . I've got everything from Cox .010 all the way to Saito 270 twin covered , with a side of OS Wankel . I modified my DX-7 with the ball bearing Gimball mod , the backlight display mod , the switching regulator mod , and run it on an eneloop NIMH pack . Yes , when I was young and ARFs didn't exist , of course I built my model airplanes , there really was no other way to get them in a town not exactly overrun with fellow plane modelers . But now , I can and do have literally dozens (about 42 in fact) RC model planes of all sizes and descriptions . This just wouldn't be possible if I had to stick build each one of em . I do have a couple I have built over the years , Hangar queens that never see the light of day , but my ARFs are my mainstay flyers . I do customize each one by using my experienced modeler's sense of what's right or not , and havn't folded a set of wings while flying yet ! . I always start by removing all of the cheesy advertising stickers that they plaster all over them , and then as I mount the engines and controls I go over any weak points I don't like till I trust it as though it was one I built . If any of this makes me any less of an RC plane modeler in anyone's eyes well that's just too bad for them , cause I'm having a blast flying the hell outta a whole bunch of planes that didn't cost me a comparative lot of time . YES ! , There IS room in the hobby for ALL of the varied interests , and it IS the ones who look down on anyone else's interest that are wrong . If it flys , it's cool . End of story

    I'll leave you with a couple of shots of a few of my ARFs , tell me ya wouldn't have a ball tearin up the skies with these .....

    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    ORIGINAL: B Shipp How many old school guys remember kits of the 70's and 80's advertising a kit that could be built in a week? Was this the beginning? I still build, a lot! ARF's are here to stay - Be happy!
    I don't remember that exact quote. The half-A and A sized planes more or less could be built in a week. Then they used verbiage such as "all die cut pieces" or "high prefabricated".

    OMFG you must be Kidding dude your so full of yourself and your own self touted sense of self importance a blind man could read it ONLINE and without the aid of BRAILLE, your game is obvious and transparent, you contribute nothing but conflict and seperatism, you seek to put yourself on a pedestal at virtually everyones elses expense, but not to worry just so long as you get your much needed pat on the back and validation that is obviously lacking in your life as it's obvious thats what you crave more than anything, I would think the sense of SELF satisfaction one derives from their pursuits would be enough to validate their efforts without having to go to an online forum looking for it

    Nothing but air, nothing of any substance. As soon as I furnished a link to a source that shows that the average man of today has no less free time to devote to leisure activity than any men before him all I've seen from your end is meaningless innuendo and character attack against me.
    How funny..but in a sad, wormy kind of way, but keep trying your best...

    You also said earlier you don't like my politics.
    Expand on that statement.

    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    Well, I see that I did the right thing in moving this thread out of the Beginners forum. Most of you guys are way over the top. Take an aspirin, take two in fact, and wash it down with your particular brand of cool aid, sit back take a deep breath and relax. Who really cares, anyway.

    Build 'em.. arf or kit... build 'em and fly 'em. Again, who the heck cares!. I certainly don't, and most of the people here don't either.
    Skylark 70 - OS .75 AX; Excelleron 90 - OS 1.20 AX; Venus II - OS 1.20 AX; And, I still fly my trainer, Hanger 9 Alpha - OS .46 FX! Some electrics. Airtronics RD8000 - Spektrum DX7 - DX6i. AMA 705964.

    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    The question was: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    The answer is:
    a) They have now a choice (ARFs) and
    b) Lack of interest (other interests, like actually flying them, or one or more hobbies)

    Period

    RE: Why don't many people build RC airplane kits anymore?

    Wow, you read something like this thread and you get an idea why Congress can't agree on anything!

    Why should anyone find fault with another modeler? I got news for you folks who are on the extreme ends of the viewpoint scale...

    If the FAA has it's way, our hobby/sport will be a distant memory anyway! We'll all have a bunch of decorations that we can't enjoy and this debate will be moot.
    Fly scale planes scale...really, it looks better.
