Not a new guy, not a troll. Been on this site for years, getting good info. Learned a lot. I just don't post very often. And it's good fun watching the dozen or so people that do post go round and round.

Init4fun- I've always enjoyed your posts- you have some great knowledge. As for your slamming me about a fun post, don't know what to say. Was just remarking there had been no traffic on this AMA thread in a day or so.

OK , so here's to giving the benefit of the doubt ;

I took your post as meaning that you wanted to get enjoyment by watching the regular posters go round and round battling each other . If I mistook that , then you do have my apology , for real . Just know that there are people who do get their kicks by stirring up dust here , and that was the basis for my scathing response .

I hope you are sincere , since quality participation here has been somewhat lacking lately ...

Normally, the dust stirring comes from having opposite sides of an issue actually "duke it out", at least in their posts. Since there's been no new subjects or threads, the forum has pretty much gone dead. Until someone comes up with a new "controversial" subject, it will stay that way.

Let's all be honest here for a moment. Most of the threads here in the AMA forum are intended to solicit a response from certain people. Heck one of them mentions me by name even. I wouldn't be so quick to call out a new poster for behavior that some regulars exhibit on a regular basis.

I called out the "popcorn" comment because that word is universal "forum speak" for "I like to watch you fight" . It's an inflammatory word akin to words like "Moonbat" or "Tin foil hat" , it's not said to elicit a positive response . Now , in this case the man said he did not mean it that way , that he meant it to be "It's really dead around here lately" and he's right , it has been really dead around here lately and my hope is that more people are flying RC planes rather than computer keyboards , being that it's Summer . So I gave him the benefit of the doubt , apologized for blasting him about the popcorn , and so we move on

I can certainly agree that we should all be out flying, camping, date nite with the wife etc. instead of getting hung up on what someone said on the internet. I myself have attended 5 events in the past 6 weeks. This last week I spent Thursday through Sunday helping run an IMAC contest and practicing for both and upcoming sailplane contest and Pattern contest. Logged 30 flights between the two airplanes.

I haven`t flown at all lately `cause I can`t stand the heat. I sweat so bad that my vision gets hampered. No shade at our field unless you have a portable canopy.

Perfectly understandable. There are times when the elements can take the fun out of it. I was signed up to fly a pattern contest earlier in the month. The Wednesday prior to the contest the weather forecast for the region was 20 mph winds. I decided pretty darned quickly that I wasn't going to drive 4 hours each way to fly in those conditions. I ended up going to a local sailplane contest instead. Now that I am in the greater Northwest, I have a feeling there are going to be many days when flying will be hampered by the weather. More building time.

Default MODEL AVIATION MAGAZINE jULY 2019

Proof once again how little attention we pay to the MA rag!. July issue has been out for almost a month and no one has commented that it has a MISPELLING on the cover. ON THE BLEEPING COVER!!!!
Of course it does have Jay Smiths No. 100plus picture in it!

Yep, I've been a member since 07-24-2004, I'm not a big poster myself; even though I work in a office and can post here throughout the day. I've been on RCG almost as long but had to redo my login to a newer one than my older original...

But I will post my 2 cents when necessary....

I joined a few months after you did but, unlike you, I do post a lot. What drives me crazy is when someone tries to tell others that they don't know enough to post advice since they aren't as active of flyer as others are. Seems to me that anyone that builds or flies would have enough knowledge and common sense to be able to help others when someone asks for help.

My common sense tells me that when a technical thread comes about that I should only join the thread if I have hands on experience with the subject matter. Many times when I do join in a thread it's because I have been there, done that, made the mistakes and am attempting to help a fellow modeler avoid a long learning curve.

I'm pretty sure that everyone else that gives advice has been there and done that as well. Most of the questions that I've seen asked in the forum haven't required a PHD in aeronautics or years of competition to answer

Like Dihedral makes ailerons less effective or that 72mhz is more reliable when the RX antenna is routed outside the balsa fuselage. Funny since we put all our 2.4 equipment on the inside unless its a CF structure.


Thinking about this a little more, since I have in the past built and painted a few Prather tunnel hulls and Deep Vee's for customers back in the day would that make me equally qualified as you to advise guys in the boat forums?
