RE: The times, they are a changin! Say it ain't so Joe?

I think you are not seeing this as I intended - I'm talking about commitment TO THE HOBBY, not about anyone's character. It's a higher level of commitment to build your own bow, construct your own...

RE: The times, they are a changin! Say it ain't so Joe?

I'm sure that you've experienced anti-ARF sentiment firsthand, and I'm also sure that once you have built the kit, covered it, installed all the equipment, and flown it that you will understand the...

RE: The times, they are a changin! Say it ain't so Joe?

Actually, after decades of building, designing, and flying models and teaching others to do the same, I recently left the hobby. Skills acquired in the r/c hobby transfer to many other fields of...

RE: Used market - what's it worth?

Thanks, DESERT RATT. I'm still finding stuff, and the weather is cooling down (finally!) so that I can spend a bit more time reorganizing the shop building. Hope to get the last of the r/c stuff...

RE: It's been a long, fun adventure...

Well, I made it through the summer with only mild symptoms of withdrawl. I treated them by working two jobs until we left for our Alaska vacation - on the Harleys. Rode to Bellingham, WA and got on...

RE: Camarillo, CA Channel Islands Condors Field Closure

Actually, my point is to take exceptional care to protect your landlord's property and your relationship with them. When we get down to the point of trying to enforce a contract - we've already lost...

RE: Camarillo, CA Channel Islands Condors Field Closure

So if yours expires January 1st, when does the landowner have to tell you he's not renewing?

My point is simple - if you don't own the land, better keep the landlord happy. If you do own the...

RE: Camarillo, CA Channel Islands Condors Field Closure

Land-use contracts are comforting, but ultimately not much protection. Typically they provide language that allows the landowner or tenant to end the contract with 90 days or less notice, without...

RE: Camarillo, CA Channel Islands Condors Field Closure

No - the real issue is that this club wasn't proactive in their fire supression plan and gave the University a reason/excuse/rationale for kicking them off the field. The fire opened the door for...

RE: Camarillo, CA Channel Islands Condors Field Closure

Very nicely done video. Unfortunately, it portrays the club as a bunch of old caucasian guys with fancy (and expensive) toys. While that is probably a pretty accurate representation, it doesn't do...

RE: LHS no longer takes my phone order unless I pay up front

It's hard when a business has to change policies - both on the customers and the business. It's not personal, but customers take it personally. It's necessary for the health of the business.

RE: The times, they are a changin! Say it ain't so Joe?

EXACTLY what's wrong with this country - we tell everyone they aren't losers, so there are no winners! Competition breeds excellence. We need MORE winners!

RE: The times, they are a changin! Say it ain't so Joe?

RE: TOWER HOBBIES SUCKS

RE: TOWER HOBBIES SUCKS

Tower's shipping does make some bonehead mistakes, but the CS department always makes it right. It took them two tries to get me a couple 7ah gelcells with some other stuff - they broke out of the...
