Simply because the members of the clubs to which he belongs don't normally come to this forum. The few who do appear to have bought into his brand of dirt smearing. There is one in particular (although I don't know for sure if he belongs to the same club/s as the, "Him" that you made reference toward) who of late has been acting as Red's Toady. If you wish to figure out who that person is, just pay close attention to the posts here in the AMA forum.

Red is still stirring the pot locally, even to the point of contacting the clubs in my vicinity to find my membership status. Sorry to disappoint him, since I only belong to one Club that holds an AMA Charter. That is the TUFF club. Now let's see how far he gets with that one.

Now, I only fly locally at a private airstrip who's owner allows a few of his friends to fly RC. It gives us a great opportunity to have a nice place to fly, without all the angst that normally is associated with the diverse kinds of flying that is currently enjoyed (sic) at most Club fields.

When I did belong to some other local clubs, I was amazed at the polarity caused by the different disciplines. The Heli guys and the Profile guys and the 3-D guys and the Scale guys, and the Sport guys and the Sailplane guys were always at Battle Stations.

Now here in Central Florida, you can't hardly swing a cat by the tail without being on an RC flying field. There are a lot of them. For the life of me, I don't know why there are not more discipline specific clubs. You would think that with the sheer number of RC modelers that we have down here, that's what would happen. Only one that I know that's specific to the discipline is the one in the Villages. There is one club that utilizes the Polo Fields there, and they are electric only. Seems to work well for them.

Bill, this seems to be a pretty common issue. I cannot understand why. Back a few years, one of the local clubs I belong to had a large increase in guys who were flying helis. The guys who were into large gassers ridiculed the heli fliers, the heli fliers returned the insults, I just hated the disharmony it caused.

Like Rodney King said, "Can't we all just get along?"

Yep, I personally witnessed a total meltdown of a club that started due to confusions and lack of understanding of how to handle helicopters.

The problems that I am acquainted with mostly stem from the Heli guys not wanting to fly the pattern, the 3-D and profile guys not wanting to fly away from the runway, the Scale guys wanting to fly a left hand pattern only, and the sail plane guys wanting to fly just about anywhere. This was even evident with a specific helicopter area, a specific sailplane area, and requiring everyone to keep the runway clear. Everyone seems to be all about what they want to do, and to Hell with everyone else. One 3-D and Profile pilot even went so far as to state that he couldn't fly further out than the runway.

Would it be nice to see those people fly in some of the European countries ?

HA HA HA.
Fat chance they would have a license after 3 minutes of.
