Tired of RCU? Its OK... It's not your fault.. Really!

Are you caught up in all the frustrations about RCU? Like you I feel Marc
has taken a good thing and made it worthless so instead of continuing to
complain about it I'd like to point you in the direction of some other RC
forum websites that are out there for your enjoyment. These sites may not be
the largest or the most active RC websites on the Internet but they are
certainly allot more user friendly and more in it for the hobby and not in
it solely for the purpose of making money off it's users.

1.) http://www.rcflying.net - Been online since before RCU was conceived
and will most likely be there after it's long gone. I manage this one myself
and my main concern is providing a place for everyone to enjoy the hobby,
not to pad my pocket with your money.

2.) http://www.torqueroll.com - Started a couple of months ago when a former
RCU user was unhappy about the direction RCU was heading and thought he
could provide a better place for RC hobbyists.

3.) http://www.rcgroups.com - Mostly a focus on electrics but an excellent
place with great management and a very large user database.

4.) http://www.runryder.com - Strictly focused on helicopters and a damn
good place for information on them.

5.) http://www.rcwatch.com - Been around a long time and while not as active
as it once was it still has some great information and great users.

Those are just a few that I visit... I am sure there are more but my point
is if your unhappy with the recent actions on RCU the best thing you can do
is not to use their new site. They will quickly learn that they made a big
mistake when their greed for money took higher priority over enjoying the
great hobby of RC.

Thanks for reading this and I hope you can find a new home at one or more of
the sites I mentioned.

Re: Tired of RCU? Its OK... It's not your fault.. Really!

Thanks for mentioning Torqueroll.comm Davd. As some of you know, I manage
Torqueroll.com and focus strictly on aviation including Helicopter, Planes,
and Jets. We're not trying to be an all encompassing site like RCU, but try
to have a sense of Community where people can discuss rc aviation topics.
We offer our users a free photo gallery. Our classified section is becoming
very active and it is free and does not require registering a credit card to
post items for sale.

Try the site out at http://www.torqueroll.com

I encourage you to visit all of the sites David has listed.

Thanks

Kevin Morris

For those interested in R/C helicopter flying - There is no doubt about it.
RunRyder IMHO is by far the most informative and the easiest to navigate.

I've just launched a new site that may be of interest, its early days, but i
do feel it in the the fullness of time will become a "One Stop Shop", so to
speak for most RC Heli info.

www.rcheliaddict.co.uk
