You find wrong. The problem with that statement is you're assuming people are choosing commenting over flying. With functioning equipment I'd bet money you can't find anyone who likes this hobby that would prefer to comment on the forums rather than fly. People comment from work, when the weather is bad, when their equipment isn't working, when their planes aren't completely built yet, when they're watching their young children (this one is mine), and any number of other reasons, none of which are because they choose the forums over flying.

I fly nearly every day, however, due to life getting in the way I am unable to fly all day every day, hence I have some time to comment, and "argue about some stupid thing".

Happy flying.

Edit: Here is a silly video a friend took today of me landing the fun cub in wind (and almost maiming the both of us ). I hope this is on topic since I'm using the DX8 and its great flap system!

bres plane 3 (0 min 38 sec)


This was the first of two times I went out flying today.

Everyone has different opinions about certain aspects of the DX8. They are expressing them when they are not flying.

Thats a lot of verbal diarrhea. Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should.

Not sure what your intent is by posting that but :
There are some people in the world that have good jobs and in addition to having a good job that of course provides me with a computer and free internet I can also multitask. Typing is not that hard for some members.

Post count don't define a member but at least my percent of good post out number yours because so far 50% of your post is garbage..

Actualy just check and I take it back, 100% of your posts is garbage.

+1

I'm also blessed with a good job and able to mutitask AND get my job done while reading rcgroups. Maybe I'll go fly at lunch time. After all, it is Friday.

P.S. Is this also "arguing about some stupid thing?"

P.P.S. I'm glad ror1 isn't my boss! Or are you?

Where do these people come from? Are they jealous that some are able to post whenever they want? I for one appreciate and get considerable information from your posts!

DX 8 Upgrade

Hi All

My DX 8 just got collected by FEDEX here in UK a few minute ago to be taken to Horizon Hobby UK for DSMX TX operating in DSM2 mode and Gimbal issue upgrade.

Will post when it returns so we can see how long it takes and will post results of test flight with an AR6200 when it returns.

I am self employed and have access to the internet throughout my workday. Part of my job is internet sales. I am not the best at multitasking, I once sent a Li Po battery instead of some guitar strings!

Should be around 24 hours. Keep checking your email. You print the label off and attach by coving it with packing tape yourself.

You mean I can't just stick the label directly on my radio and send it off?
