Bad publicity for RC

I was watching… I mean my girlfriend was watching a program on TV called blind date. The show matches up two people and follows them on their blind date. The guy that they had on the show took his blind date to fly rc planes. The instructor pilot was obviously from Multiplex cause he had a Multiplex shirt on and was flying a pico jet with the funny looking Multiplex transmitters. The bad part of the whole thing was that this guy was a total belligerent jerk. He was every girl’s nightmare. If this is the kind of person we have representing the majority out there we are in deep *&(#...

Anyone else out there catch this show?

No not the Multiplex guy... You only saw him for a couple minutes. The guy on the date was the jerk... And believe me! Jerk is a big time understatement. I sure hope Lymen was the Multiplex guy and not the guy on the date...

I saw that show last night as well; if I don't see as much action in my life, I maight as well watch others on TV I don't see how that segment could give RC a bad image. It's pretty obvious that niether the guy nor girl on the date are RC-people. If they were really flying those planes at all, I think the girl did pretty good!

On another segment the show had a couple go and try out a 1/8 scale gas off road car. The girl crashed it immediately, full throttle into a wall. With a giggle, she then handed the transmitter back to the hobby shop employee as if to say, 'here's your toy back'. I wonder if the show picked up the repair bill?

Ahh, Blind Date. Apparently they like R/C. I've seen them do R/C Helicopters as well as the Pico-jet, and gas car incident.

I used to watch it quite a bit. I swear, they must specificially look for the jerkiest guys, and the women are usually slutty or schitzophrenic. I just love those episodes where the girl is kissing all over the guy, and pratically gets naked with him only in the end to say "NO" when the show asks if she would see him again. HUH??!! And whats with all the unemployed actors?

Anyways, my story. At the last Pasadena model show, I asked the multiplex people about the Blind Date show segments. They said the guy in the car and plane shows was in fact Karlton. I also asked about the girl smashing the car into the wall, if it was real or just quick edited. I was told it really happened that way and that fast. I've never seen anyone break a car that fast.
