And when some "unpredictable" pilots are up with me, then it becomes important for the spotter to help me understand who's up and how they are flying so I can work around them.
Yep!

I think the upcoming garage sale and its location is a huge statement. Perhaps it's a little foresight as to where things are headed for us 3d guys.

Unfortunately the little rant that sparked this again is something that's going to happen, regardless of where you are, you'll run into these people. I think the moderator's actions in reaction to certain disapproval of one large sponsor of RCG was the moment where many of us realized what was important over here. RCG is great for classifieds right now, but the drama and moderation has gotten out of control!

Right now, I think if the advertisers eventually have enough, the entire 3d culture could change. Unfortunately this site is one "copy" away from losing a huge market. Until then, let's keep it civil. Once you start ranting about your kids going to private universities, I already have no interest in the rest! No politics, no drama, just 3d!

In the beginning there was 1 thread. Then there was a division and two threads were created. Then another split happened and now there are 2 forums and like 6 threads or something.

Things used to be so much simpler!

Looks like all we need now is some chutes, a powered backpack, and some red/white/blue jumpsuits.

LOL!

Yeah I fly through the winter both indoor and outdoor. Last year it was easy and I skipped some indoor sessions because it was so nice out! I can't wait to hit some online sessions with the new sim.
