NEED YOUR THOUGHTS - Moving forum

I have been more and more annoyed with the interaction on RCGroups outside of our vendor forum. I would like your thoughts on moving to MultiRotorForums.

Most of their users tend to be more professional and flying multirotors for commercial use rather than hobby.

I'll go wherever y'all go. Will the old threads here follow or at least stay here for a while?

Im with Fred. Where ever the main forum is I will go. It does seem to be where the pro's hang out. Jeff Scholl being one who posts there all the time.

No problem but I hate the need of checking two different web forum of the same theme each day to see what is in the kitchen today. So here or there but not both.

There does seem to be a better / more professional outlook at the MRF. I know that I have given up on even viewing the general RCG MR thread... too much garbage to wade through.
We will go where you go...

I like it just the way that it is. If you do that you may loose a lot of us that just do it as a hobby. Maybe you need both unless you are after the professional market only and want to drop support of the hobby market.

As long as this one is closed to more posts but still available for reference, I'm for it.

You could still go over to MRF and get the same support.

I am just getting tired of the main multi-rotor thread. There are a few people that just seem to clog it up with negativity.

We will still support the hobby market but maybe not on this site.

If we move, then our vendor forum here will be deleted and we will move completely over.

Most of the threads here are way out of date. At this point I believe all of the major issues have been resolved. Not that we don't have more work to do but the small annoying problems have been solved.

Folks do you agree?

I don't believe there is much here that is still useful and relevant.

If there is an overwhelming number of you that want this vendor forum to continue then we won't close it. But you have to vote.

I am lucky to have been able to find information that I need lil bit easier.

Though, I do agree that the main multi rotor forum is overloaded with poop. I basically browse rcg via my subscriptions.

Pretty sad huh.

Point is, I'm already a member of multi rotor forum. So you guys could go there if you want to.

Can I please suggest that everyone here register on MRF and post on our vendor thread. Can we try to bring the discussion there and see how it goes. I haven't made a decision yet but lets test the waters.

A note, I had a hard time registering there since their software kept saying that I am a spam bot. Hopefully they are fixed now.
