RE: Violent Stall

Yup. Too much elevator throw and not enough experience to know what was happening.

Pretty poor judgment on where to fly, too.

RE: Do I have the Right?

I used to do a lot of road biking when I lived in Kentucky. Miles and miles of rarely-used highways, shared by just me and the dogs. Being on a road bike, outrunning the dogs was easy. Crank it up...

RE: You MUST Have a Buddy With You When You Play

You dislike my opinion on your admitted desire to seek out group-think, so you imply that I'm trolling? Nice. Pardon me for thinking that your issue is something you could resolve, if you so...

RE: You MUST Have a Buddy With You When You Play

Do you know who values freedoms and liberty? Those that are willing to take action to secure them. That may mean taking an oath and wearing a uniform, it may mean getting involved in politics at...

Solutions aren't the idea here. It's a *****'n'moan thread.

RE: FUTABA Telemetry

Never explain. People either get it, or they provide it.

Why don't you just work to have the rule changed?

RE: Anyone have this happen??

It's no different than the Sunday ads. Any print publication has a lead-time. If you happen to come across it before its effective date, there's no obligation for anyone to sell it to you early for...

RE: FUTABA Telemetry

For a newbie, your attitude stinks. You've owned, what, two radios? Have you learned how to land yet? ;)

You talk way too much for your level of experience and knowledge. It's unfortunate,...

RE: FUTABA Telemetry

Isn't it equally silly to keep talking about how uninterested in it you are? Disinterest is usually shown by indifference, rather than persistence.

RE: Need Help

There's a world of difference between someone flying their own plane and someone flying someone else's. They're not at all the same thing. Unless you fly at a club where any member can borrow...

RE: Need Help

Flying at a public field, we get all kinds. We can't stop anyone from flying, but we can help people who both need and want it. A little friendliness and chatting goes a long way to telling you...

RE: CASTING RC Hobby Shops and Salespeople

What an exciting idea for a show. Imagine the drama: Glow fuel price increases. ARFs with crappy hardware. 14x6 props out of stock. Intense radio brand debate. Online price matching. FAA...

RE: FUTABA Telemetry

2.4ghz was never a must have, either. It made certain things easier, same as telemetry does. I don't need it, but my next radio (which is probably years away) will have it. Will it be something...

RE: FUTABA Telemetry

This reminds me of 5 or so years ago when 2.4ghz was on the verge of going mainstream. "I can't imagine needing that." "I don't see the purpose." "I've been flying since 1962 and..." "If you...

RE: Which New 2.4 Transmitter Would You Choose?

For most purposes, these transmitters all do the same things. We can talk about the exceptions for hours, but for most of us they fly 4 to 7 channel models exactly the same way with room for growth....

RE: Minneapolis Hobby shops

Hobby Warehouse is actually in Richfield, which is a Minneapolis suburb. It's just west of the airport.

Hub Hobby is in Richfield, too. It's more of a general hobby shop (games, toys, trains,...

RE: BUY & SELL NOT WORKING

And yesterday when I went outside, it started to snow. Did it start to snow because I went outside? Spurious correlation isn't helpful. It MIGHT be helpful to spin three times in your chair before...

RE: BUY & SELL NOT WORKING

And having those in charge of the site not explain to their customers what is going on is the cause of that behavior. It's not hard to put a site-wide sticky up. Why not address the issue directly...

RE: Thinking of importing to the US? Read this.

It doesn't sound as if these are regulations that have been put in place already. Just that one agency is lobbying for them.

Would it move manufacturing to the US? Only if the costs were...

RE: What's Going On With RCU Marketplace

Giving users a heads up? Explaining what's going on? Those just aren't in RCU's management playbook. They never have been.

Then again, I suppose by "everyone" you mean the mods, too. That...

RE: BUY & SELL NOT WORKING

There are viable alternatives. RCU's classified used to be modeled on the old RCO classifieds. RCG has that style and it works well. I prefer it.

RE: BUY & SELL NOT WORKING

One of the things RCU is terrible at is communicating with the community. It's not hard to put up a sticky explaining things.
