    RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    OH Lord my poor sides are killing me. I haven’t been to RCC too often since I was banned but a friend sent me a link to the latest topic β€œMAAC President Resigns” http://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/showthread.php?t=190428
    First they go after Clair Murray then Ron Dodd and now Kevin McGrath it’s like watching the movie Young Frankenstein. The villagers (RCC) led by Inspector Kemp (Sharpe) are running around with pitchforks looking for victims. See this is the problem with ARFs no one spends enough time at the building table.

    RE: RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    The long and short of it was I commented that when Jason ran the site it was a family oriented site one which I had no problem steering our younger club members too. Now it would appear that off color jokes and you tube videos rife with four letter diatribes were the norm even the new owner seems to take pleasure in posting links that would offend any right thinking parent. Next thing I was banned for life. No loss Ed it went downhill so fast after Jason left. Very few of the old guard left. I like RCU and a few other Scale forums. No loss in my book.

    By the way Ed we are still listed as members I guess thats how he justifies his head count for his sponsors. Like Florida letting dead people vote

    RE: RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    Hey I was banned too!!!! Rick is a forum Nazi, he forgets that without members you won't have sponsors or a website. Turns out that after being banned for a year or so, I haven't missed it.
    remember when people actually BUILT their airplanes?

    RE: RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    Banned members are kept on the list of members so he fibs a little about the number of members on RCC. Most of the originals are either banned or just don't bother going there any more. Even the guys I know who still have access have not bothered to offer anything for sale there or post. The forum went downhill fast after Jason let it go. To bad it used to be a great forum.

    RE: RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    I see they just changed the theme again. I got banned when they changed it last time for making a suggestion amongst all the people telling Rick flat out that the theme sucked. There are more people telling him now how bad it sucks. They aren't banned haha. I still can't see the site without a proxy server, don't much care, I just check it now and then to see if there is anything interesting in the classifieds. That guy is a piece of work, if I knew how to do a website I'd probably make one called RCRick sucks or something. He had it out for me from day one, mind you, Jason didn't like me and told Rick, and I quote "He is a cancer to the site, I recommend you get rid of him". Rick told me this in a PM, he also called me a cancer in multiple forum posts. Funny when name calling is against the rules haha.

    RE: RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    Hi Dennis,

    Still working 6 days a week now for 4 years straight (beats being on layoff!). Yea ...I got a Top Flite 1/5 scale P-40 I am working on .I stripped off the covering, fixed everything I didn't like, glassed the plane using the oil/water base polyurethane system...man o man do they ever come out nice without mess of the resin! I did full panel lines, panels, rivits and fasteners . I am just about ready to paint then weathering . Going to do a no conventional scheme ..no sharks mouth on this P-40. Yes, I still talk to Randy quite a bit. He is on a R/C break ...sick of the crap also . he has really got into sledge hockey and that is his passion . I've been to a few games and the team he plays on is quite good. I'm sure he will come back to flying when he is ready.

    RE: RCC OH LORD!!!!!!

    I can just picture looking up and seeing that face peering out from behind the mask pretty intimidating. Actually I ran into a family with a young man just starting out sledge hockey about 3 years ago and they had nothing but good things to say about Randy. They really liked him and he gave a lot of help to the young man. I always knew he was a big old softy at heart

    Just wanted to say I love RCC. Boat section is a bit slow but they are all very nice there.
    No Drama, cool giveaways and they do cool interviews with members.
    Maybe instead of you guys crying year over year you should do something productive and get involved with the hobby instead of politics. Maybe make a trip to your own work benches and actually do something

    Yes and I too was banned. No loss though. I was one of the originals on RCC back when there was less than 100 members. I was banned 2 months ago when an RCC member posted a video of a little girl being hit in the head on her bike with an Rc car. Rick posted some poorly worded comments about it being her fault. I'm an RN whom works with dementia, Alzheimer's, and acquired brain injury( like being struck in the frontal lobe (forehead)). I sent him a very well professionally worded PM letting him know how I felt about his comments and some links to websites trying to educate him on acquired brain injury(ABI). Next thing I know I'm banned for life with no explanation required or needed. Nice guy eh!!!!

    Dave!
    I wondered where you went. No kidding, banned. Only a small handful of us originals yet. Jason ran a good site back then, sure miss those days. Hey, Tim and son were out at the field last week, few small issues to tidy up before he can fly. Hopefully they are back this week and we'll have some fun. His son is keen too.

    Frank,
    Tim said he was out he other day. He talks alot about flying just needs to get a few life issues worked out. But he is detirmined. I'm not sure what was up with dads plane as the eek previous I was down visiting him and gave his plane the once over all control surfaces worked in the right direction and I ran 2 tanks of fuel through the motor stopping and starting several times through out and hand starting the old fashion way and only requiring a couple of flips each time. I ran it around the ground taxiing it for fun and checking the steering. All was fine. Issue is the old guy gets bored and starts fooling around. Both are undetirred and will be in the air again soon. Let me know if you are flying in the highschool gym his winter. I'm getting pretty good at the indoor F3 patterns
    Good to hear from you. I plan on giving IMMAC. A whirl next year and my kids are getting older. Can't wait.
