Amen Chuck, Who would have ever thought about sharing info and idea and talk like an adult!
I think we are doing pretty damn good for such a small splinter faction and I'm damn glad to be a part of it!
Thanks Chuck! I couldn't have said it better myself. I think one of the best things about this hobby is the sharing of ideas, designs, etc. Knowing that other people can use/appreciate this info is very gratifying This website is full of great information that would be hard to find otherwise.
I heard about this site from a really nice guy on (That other site) who sold me a Pizazz and delivered it to Houston. Now that's a nice guy. I came here out of curiosity and a desire to try something new. Was getting tired of overpriced giant scale kits and flying around in circles. I guess it took about four trips to the site and I was Hooked! I bought two profile kits from Morris Hobbies, great place, BTW, and finished my TopCap yesterday. Charged it up allnight and flew my nutsack off today. I ain't had this much fun since the hogs ate my little brother. Won't be no more fatties in my hangar. Now all I gotta do is fly til I learn how to do this stuff and I'm a happy camper.
A 4 lb TopCap with 8 lb of pull from the engine WILL go straight up until you shut the throttle off. Rolls about twenty feet and leaps into the air at 90 Degrees.
None of this would have been possible for me had it not been for you guys being so open and friendly and willing to share information.
So, Thanks to all of you, I love this shit.
Great post Chuck. It's so great there are other's out there that take the road less traveled and build both from plans and there own designs. I use to like RCM magazine for that reason but now it's mostly ARFs But the Bros keep the construction going. Great job Guys
Amen to that Chuck. Too bad (for them) others do not agree. Now we need not worry about someone else's ideas of right versus wrong or good versus bad.
The Bros (and this site) have put many folks back on track on what modeling is all about. This mindset we share has turned this hobby back into a challenge for me. I challenge myself and others to be better in all aspects of modeling. That includes flying, building, design (bashing), and sharing.
Let's all fly the same planes, and always in the same way. Now how much fun is that? It's much more fun to fly outside of the box. And now, with a little help, I'm building outside of the box as well.
BTW, the Super Sledge goes up the weekend of 10/3.
Ill be there taking pics. Not sure about vid though. Either way I cant wait.
Too damn true. I believe that this is helping every Bro. Be it building something out of the ordinary, or just making us think outside the box. And to think that some suppress this kind of knowledge and creativness. SUCKERS :lol:
