Maybe if we started going over there and telling you how to do things it would be different? The one who causes all this fuss doesn't even build foam or balsa.

And when our forum is setup we won't either.

Siome simple reapairs and wait for the gear to arrive from hk when i get around to ordering it. It seems okay for a third hand plane. Im the fourth set of thumbs to control this thing.

Yes you are.
I see Some of the oldest of posters in here taking more the one side to this. And I wonder why. All I can say is “to the new guys looking into the forum” they don’t know about all the old builds or bits and pieces all over the site. An on line on going school for building RC absolutely will add newer generation builders to the site when we let them know its available to them.
Someplace in this forum it asked “how do we bring model building back” We share what we do by telling them where to look for stuff like this build area. The new to building, even the oldest skills are unknown to them.

If your not here to help what are you doing..

You are right Joe and to piggyback on that, I don't think anyone should argue because it just makes both people angry and then they start to nitpick at each other so much until one or both get banned from this site. Look at how many folks that has happened to in the past year.

Like I said in the other thread, I apologize for getting caught up the fray. Most don't know it, but I had a guy here follow me around RCG for years on end posting negative comments about me and trying to harass and bully me. That is a terrible feeling, trust me. When I saw lecy start doing the same thing, it felt like that all over again and I got carried away and probably said some things I should not have. I'm sorry I let that happen to myself and I'm sorry I cluttered up this thread with all that BS.

But the great news is that we got a new forum up and running that is dedicated to basla building! As you know, this is a first for RCG and since the foam builders has had two of them for quite some time, us balsa builders always felt a little left out. OK, maybe we didn't but it is nice to have the new forum.

Frank, please keep up the great work...now, back to my Trittle Luscombe.

FRANK, here is an idea: what about trying to get guys like Pat Trittle to publish short articles, here?

Andy, my thought is that articles from VARIOUS designers would help "bait the hook" for those who don't build, yet, or who have just begun.

Although I am thrilled that there has been a Forum started for those of us who like building with balsa, I don't understand the rancor that seems to crop up when someone espouses one type of building method! I build with balsa and I also build with fiberglass and foam and even have two flat foam airplanes to build some day when the mood strikes. I have mostly 2 cycle glow airplanes; but, also have four stroke glow, gasoline and have a few electric airplanes. I also have ARFs! I expect that I will probably buy more ARFs, I also think I may be more involved with electric in the future. I am involved in all the aspects of the hobby that seem to cause problems for some of you! Why does it have to be this way?

This is a hobby, something I do for fun and because it gives me great satisfaction! I really think those of you who think the hobby should be done one particular way; or, are so upset with others, for what they say; or, do, should stop posting in the forums because you bum me and a lot of other people OUT! Find and do something you CAN be happy with!

If you want to know how to bring model building back,visit Balsa Builder's new forum.
We have stopped wringing our hands,and done something about it.

In less than 24 hours of operation,we've filled a page with builds of what has to be a great cross-section of model aircraft.

From 17" balsa electrics,to 117" balsa-gas powered models,the mode of power is not an issue.

Having the desire,and a little ability,or in some cases,a lot of ability,to build a balsa model is the only requirement.

Join us to increase model building,if you dare.

As in all other forums,if you have a question,it will be addressed.
