How long can they stonewall?

Another spectacular example of the kind of deep and meaningful (and "spirited") discussion that can only happen thanks to the enlightened view of management that says that the AMA Discussion forum...

Making Z bends in control rods

I still use Z-bends occassionally, but for 2-56 push rods, I prefer these nylon gadgets (http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/WTI0095P?FVSEARCH=GPMQ3820&FVPROFIL=++) from Great Planes. You make a 90...

On the value of moderators

Again, you guys are focusing on the person (me), and not the message. Here's Marc's vision for RCU:



Nobody has explained why this shouldn't be so for the AMA discussions. You may disagree,...

On the value of moderators

I've been told that Marc himself has indicated that this particular forum is to be only lightly moderated. I'm not sure of the rationale for this, but I've seen the results, and I don't think the...

How long can they stonewall?

You know Red, there are parts of the country (big ones) where "liberal" is not a cuss word. You might find you are actually building support for McNeill. I know I'm sure feeling some sympathy for...

Model Aviation Magazine

Eloy, I just read your September article (adapting a 12v power supply), which I somehow missed on first reading. It was great! It seems like your style would be a good fit for R/C Report.

It's...

Jim McNeill's bio.

How is this so? I've read about how the nominating process favors certain people, and I assume incumbents have an easy time getting on the ballot, but once the ballot is set, how does the election...

Prop separation. Who's at fault?

Ah-hah! So you're the guy BasinBum is complaining about in this thread (http://rcuniverse.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=209254&forumid=59) :) :)

VOTE! Should we separate fun flying planes and profile planes into 2 forums or not?

You might as well piss in the wind as try to influence the course of the English language. No proclamation here is going to have the slightest effect on how people use a term. The language is full...

Why aren't there more women in RC flying?

I don't think there's much ice age thinking here or at the fields where I fly. It's hard to improve on MinnFlyer's post; women and men have different interests. One of the fields where I fly has a...

Re: LOL etiquette

What's that supposed to mean? It sounds derogatory to me, like you're saying we're too dumb to have figured it out. So, point of etiquette: Do not begin post by insulting everybody you intend to...

E-Z Connecters

I personally use a z-bend at the servo and a clevis at the horn, and it's simple to make, simple to adjust, and with a high quality clevis, pretty reliable.

However, I think the EZ connectors are...

Write in Jim Branaum 1428LM for D8-VP

I think you're making the mistake of confusing the Internet with reality. A lot of the guys here that come across really *****ly are the nicest guys you'd meet at the field. Conversely, I appear to...

What do you think of RCU members who don't reveal their real name?

I'm curious what folks think about RCU members who do not reveal their real name or identifying information (I'm talking here about forums, not buying a selling). I've been on RCU almost since the...

Write in Jim Branaum 1428LM for D8-VP

The word search on Google leaves a lot to be desired (doesn't seem to work). However, if you search rec.models.rc.air on the date 2/14/2001 for a post from "Branaum" with the subject "Re: on track...

Write in Jim Branaum 1428LM for D8-VP

Not to mention those of us who have been unfairly at the wrong end of Jim's flame thrower. Stuff you write on the Internet lives almost forever, Jim. OK, I'm not in District 8, so who cares, but I...

Harbor Sales Service

Cutting HDPE Is Not Fun....

This is another area of mystery, just like various coro gluing methods work for some and not for others. I use HDPE from a plastic supply place. It's milky white in color, but you can't see through...

Nylon bolts for landing gear?

I think nylon is better. Two 10-24 nylon bolts is not enough for a 5 pound plane. I'm now using three 10-24 bolts, and so far so good.

what .46?

Even if they were the same price, I'd buy the TT .46 Pro before an OS .46 FX. The reason: The TT survives crashes 100 times better. (And don't get me started on the remote needle valve.) ...

SPA3D vs. Beginner ???'s

If this is the reason you decide to go with a plane that is more than you can handle, PLEASE be very safety conscious. Spads are cheap, people aren't. (And neither are engines and receivers.)

Ack! I was just today thinking about building some benches like that! Now I wonder. Perhaps the good old ground is the best place to be.
