Some new changes on RCG today... not sure what all exactly, or if it is just format.

upper title bar is different (drop down menu on the right now) and seems the advertising space is larger at the top as well

Meantime... other than the email subscription link... I'm trying to find where 'clubs' are listed.
Not big on 'change' myself, unless there's a clear improvement

Edit: Found it under "More" so no big loss. Just an extra click and scroll.

So, it appears now if you get a PM you won't know unless you click on them? Banner appears to cover the status line. I'd say it's a sucky change overall.

Hopefully they just needed to do a software update and they're still tweaking the skins a bit.
I've set mine to popup on getting a new message, but I did like seeing the status line number too.

I get all my fixings between here, flying giants, and fpvlab. I really have no interest in signing up for more websites. It is almost like getting homework, just more forums to read and keep up with.

Between here and FG, I get all the 3d, scale and giant info that I need.

Anyone see the new show " Robot Combat League" on Syfy? Looks kind of cool but also kind of lame. I miss Robot wars!

FPVLab will be a huge resource for you, especially if you are still considering getting in on that segment of the hobby. You will find many of the same faces as here, but without all the FPV fear mongering often found at RCG.

Definitely support the lab, it is Sentry's baby.

FPVLab is a huge resource of great info.

I think I am going to try and check out this event in Duluth in March. Could be fun for my boys to check out.

I have been to similar events before, but sadly left unimpressed. For the most part, I find what we do to be far more exciting. I find these events are much more catered to autonomous robots than they are to RC.

Do they let grown-ups compete? perhaps we could put a team together
