I glued it all together then painted/sharpied. First foam build. Hot glue rocks! Soldering iron melts the pockets for the servos great. My wife is a big fan of Smallville so had to do the "S". After all it is made by Superfly RC.
Hope to hit some fences, cows, lightposts and any other object this weekend.

Got 3 of them over the holiday and now using only TP1320's on it. I love the plane and the last crash was due to problems with the gearbox. Had to bring it in with no power and stalled it yet again She will fly again though. I bought a replacement, but it is staying in the box till I kill this one.

So some mod has a God complex. I've modd'ed many forums in the past. There is not some massive thought process to see a larger picture when "giving out points". .. although, for this nameless, moderator 'black and white' exists. It seems that since we push all traffic back to RCG and promote RCG in every podcast we do - that isn't good enough. Forgive me if I link back to allthingsthatfly.com . But the full circle thought process is missing from this "mod".

Apparently, we are not welcome here at RCG any longer. That is ok, we have forums being built as I type this.


This post will probably be "pointed" and removed, but of course to our 5000 listeners a week - I will "say" it.


Hide behind your keyboard. It's what your good at.
Thanks for your time.

As of yesterday, I upgraded since my old bronze membership expired. If I would have known Jamie was getting harassed like this by the mods, I doubt I would have renewed at all. I also wanted to discuss advertising here on RCG to help increase our listener base, but I really have no desire now.

Nonsense.... Burke puts allthingsthatfly under his username and above his avatar and gets smacked down by a mod. I bet you would be hard pressed to find an episode where we don't mention something cool going on here on RCG. While we aren't a driving force in the RC world, we do reach lots of people in the hobby. I think RCG and ATTF have the same goal and mission. I think we would also be served well by helping each other out in that goal. y4B U h8'in (sorry Chris), trust me it was appropriate

Well, I paid my $$$ and now I have the membership, but unless they change their attitude and stop slamming on Burke, I will not be a repeat customer.

The forums in question has just been a "messing around" ground for a few people. We are in the works of the real forums and those will be up in a while. But as of now, no real reason to use the current one and have people join.

I Emailed Jim before I said anything and the lack of a response is all I needed..

For what it's worth, Jim is a very busy guy. You (and everyone here) should PM all of the following fine folks and let them know that one of the mods is either very confused, or abusing power. NOBODY should get reported for posting a link to a vendor, unless it's the vendor himself and does it excessively. Here's the list, happy PM'ing:

jbourke, Jim T. Graham, Mike Kolesnikov, Dave Lauck, HaleyB, LisaSt, Angela H

The last thing we want to do is burn bridges here, but we also don't want this to turn into a place where nobody can speak freely.
