We could have added those categories to this thread as well !

Nonetheless, Happy Flying to all
The above were my 2 cents...
Why I do agree to a certain extent, I think the new thread will help to gain momentum with the newly added categories, revised rules and the "Hall of Fame".

It would be too difficult to update this thread, as the updates will be lost on page 97. By creating the new fresh thread everybody will be on the same page, so to speak.

PS: I have now made the new thread "sticky" too

MFG,

New Micro Flyers Great and Small Video Challenge Thread


After months of inactivity on the Un-Official Micro-Flyers Video Challenge thread, I think the time has come to create a new challenge thread, including revised rules, more challenge categories, and fresh new concepts. So I have created the new Micro Flyers Great and Small Video Challenge thread to cater for all of the micro flying audience by adding 5 new challenge categories.

All of the challenge categories are as follows:
  • Helis (IN BLUE)
  • Helis 3D (IN LIGHT BLUE)
  • Quads (IN GREEN)
  • Quads 3D (IN DARK GREEN)
  • Planes (IN RED)
  • Planes 3D (IN ORANGE)
  • FPV also including the use of "key chain cams" and other micro recording devices (IN PURPLE)

Additionally I have added a Hall of Fame where you can compete to get your name on the podium in your respective flying class for the ultimate bragging rights.

Please abandon this sinking ship, and board the fresh new life raft which is the:

For your information, your new thread is NOT "sticky "

I mean no offense to you, this is a community forum and I am sharing my thoughts about the thread that others & I read and enjoy.

That's only how it appears to you, valiantGLX. Your blog posting only shows up in other people's "My RCGroups" if they have subscribed to it. A thread that is "sticky" is one that always shows up at the top of a particular forum. This thread is "sticky" in the "Micro RTF" forum. Look here:

http://www.rcgroups.com/micro-rtf-420/

this thread is always at the top regardless of when it was updated unlike the other threads below.

Here's what you can do, valiantGLX. As your blog gains in posts, you can always come back to this thread and post a "summary" of the winners. Kind of a "teaser" news story if you will. You could also post a "best of" or something post here as well while the actual action goes on in your blog. That's just one model of operation and there are plenty of others. As you say, the purpose is to get people back interested in doing this and who cares HOW that happens so long as it does, right? Looking forward to seeing some more fun flying videos.

Sticky

OK, the new thread is good and proper sticky now

And if you choose to stay here you're going to be missing out on the action. In the first day we already have 3 videos posted, with 2 people up on the podiums in the Hall of Fame
