Over the last few weeks I have realized that I dont have the skill the keep Astronomertalk.com looking fresh and up to date.

That is why I am looking for someone who is good at coding and would be interested in re-designing the forum.

Does anyone have any past ideas about how they hired a coder? what worked well? etc.

Well, the Astronomy website is up and gaining about 1.2 new members a day. Really cool! Never thought it would start out like that!


Additionally, I may be getting a new RC plane (Mini Skywalker) so I will keep everyone updated on that!!!

Jimmy B,

With the help of Keenan (a rc groups member), and me, we just launched our first website.


Its a simple forums website and were just starting out. Make an account, snoop around, and tell us what you think!

Also, we are looking for moderators,

Just wanted to say that over the course of about 6 months on rc groups, I have met hundreds of great people on RC groups.

Ill be honest, If I hadn't of won some of those free items, I would totally not be in the hobby right now. At the moment, Im trying to repay everyone, not with cash, but I want to show everyone I'm putting the items to good use. trying to make a video of the champ flying

Although I was skeptical with RC groups going in, and questioned some of its services, like the 200 message mailbox, I really enjoy these forums. Tones of AMAZING videos and reviews.

As you can read below, my next project is FPV, which I hope to get good at very soon.

Special shoutout to two great companies: ECKS FRAME, and FMS MODEL. won't go into detail of their generosity.

A special shoutout to someone, who i will leave nameless. who offered to give me money through paypal to help me with my projects, very very very nice!!!

Thanks to all so far, I really appreciate the help.

Thank you,

Im so ready for FPV, truthfully it was the only reason I got into the hobby, its what I wanted to do. Ive decided to start of small, I mean micro FPV on the HZ champ. The entire system will cost $114 already put it together online, hopefully at least 300m range, just gotta save up some cash now.

cant wait to get started.

OK, Im making a pole...

Im getting this charger, This reason Im getting it, is because it works with the Xt60 connector, AND it would be a big step up from a run of the mill balance charger.


should I get this power supply,

OR this one,


just post which one you think,

Well, Im doing a brief summary about my 5 months in the hobby

Im 16, and from Boston,MA. my parents are not into the hobby, but they do let me do it, so I have to thank them.

In late novemeber, I decided to order a dh 9116 heli, to get into the hobby.

By early january I had gotten pretty good with the heli and shot some impressive video.

But then the heli broke.

I went onto planes, with my first one being the FMS easy trainer 800.

It eventually broke and I made a 60" fpv plane.

Sadly, I used the same tramitter/reciever as the FMS easy trainer 800, and it broke on takeoff and I lost the plane.

Now I have a new plane. 48" wingspan all around plane.

I also just got a HZ champ to mull around with a bit, toss a keychain camera on it.

the future is unknown.


FMS and ECKS FRAME, without them, i probably wouldn't be the hobby anymore.

P.S. Im in the the hunt for a spectrum dx4 or dx5, i don't have much $$, but please PM me if you have one laying around.
