C'mon, work with me here, think a little.

Did you ever think that maybe the nick and tagline are tongue in cheek? If you must know, the contents of my wine cellar would blow your socks off.

Kind of just sounds like your trying to impress people with your money now? I'm sure most people here care more about a $50 foamie than your "wine cellar". That kind of talk win you many friends I'm sure.

I did, but then I realised you don't know really know much about RC, or you would know there are good servos from companies other than futaba and hyperion, and you wouldn't tell the world you got a couple of hack foamies for christmas..... and I don't do wine, so socks stay put.
Besides nobody cares about anyone elses income here, that's why it's called RCgroups instead of "look at me I have money groups"


You want to impress people here, which you obviously do, then show us a decent RC collection....... telling us how rich you think you are and how much wine you have is of no concern or interest to me.

Perhaps you could also consider that by buying the cheap stuff, you're supporting slave labour and human rights violations in China.

Think about it.

Buying the good stuff is a move towards solving that problem.

I'm sorry, not trying to be a jerk but WOW, you CAN NOT have said that and actually believed it?

Who do you think make all the parts that are "made in china" Sure as hell not electrical engineers that are making $26/hour in an air-conditioned room and ergo chairs.
Please..

Only difference is I'm paying $3 for an item that your paying $50 for.

Don't worry about my hangar being small because of the price involved in fitting out each model. Let's just say...money is not a problem.
You could either be a merchant banker or something which rhymes with it .

If you didn't come on here and just have to tell someone about all your supposed riches (and sock blowing wine cellar), assuming we are all "have nots" and we support human right violations and slave labour because we buy from China (that one is a doozy, where do you think your cheap foamies you fly are made btw?) all because we think HK do have a few decent servos???

no tall poppy syndrome here, but who says you're a tall poppy to begin with?
