the true history. this site was here but languishing; everyone was in the bro forum at rcpoo until the mojo incident brought the phoniness to a head and we wound up here where we could talk FREELY and UNCENSORED!Jim D said:This site came to be because the powers that be at RC(u) took offense to the brutally honest opinions and information the early bro's were putting out there.
If a slab sucked, it was so noted. If a vendor was shady and tried to pull some crap, it was openly stated. If someone was seeking open and truthful advice on RC/3D/Slabs, it was given. If a mfg was pushing BS about a product, they were called out. If they made-sold a good product, they were praised.
Often, the sponsors of RC(u) came into the crossfire and received poor marks from the Bro's. This greatly wrankled the powers that be there, this group of malcontents who dared to call it like they see it. In the end, we moved on to this place.
So this place (the Pro Bro Forum) was born as a place for some of the most talented, honest and friendly RC fliers to talk openly without a corporate management type censoring what was more often than not the plain truth.
A few basic truths were common amongst the group:
-Profiles are the best bang for the buck 3D rigs. (period)
-Flying 3D style should be accepted and embraced in the RC world, not shunned and spurned.
-Good products should be acknowleged and poor ones identified.
This was not created as some general alternative adult themed forum. There was (and is) a lot of adult level content because of the nature of most Bro's. A lot of Bro's cuss and fuss, raise hell, enjoy a good party and like to fly it like they hate it.
But most of all, the Pro Bro's were friends. Far from cookie cutter personalities, diverse only begins to describe the group. My first trip to Effingham back in 05, I knew I was amongst friends.
So all the pock shots between 'Bros' just doesn't accomplish anything. I'm not out to censor anybody. I'm not out to enforce my morals on anyone, I believe in free speech. But I also like to think people have enough common sense not to use 'free speech' as a knee-jerk justification for spouting off hate and nastyness for no purpose but perhaps their own gratification.
the winter angle never occured to me, I don't have that problem here but if you need something to do until springtime, I suggest you go here:
