Which is one of the reasons I've come to like electric flight so much.
The challenge of designing and building an airframe much lighter and
stronger than you thought possible makes it a source of endless
education and fascination.

Re: Model Aviation Magazine

Well yeah know Pete I fly R/C and really don't consider myself a fatty. I
started many years ago flying free flight then control line and finally R/C.
Why? Because I got tired of watching my creation fly off or crash and I had
no control over what happened. Now at least I can blame the radio, battery,
or the guy next to me on the same frequency. As for the magazine, I think
it's great. Now go TROLL some place else.. BTW I like the AMA 2003 number
you have haha

Re: Model Aviation Magazine

Most AMA'ers appear to want just the opposite...

Look on the bright side, Pete.. MAN peddles their rag for $30/yr.. Let's
say MA costs the same, and you wanna subscribe...

Go for it and now your AMA ticket/license/membership only cost you $28.00...

Me, I prefer the other mags, and don't care as much for MA, to which I
wouldn't normally subscribe. But I AM a diehard AMA
member/licensee/ticketholder... Only that privlege now costs me $58.00...

I think I'll develop a affinity for MA... Lookit the money I'll save...

Cheers,

Bill

Nice troll. No arguments to present, so you go straight for namecalling ;-)
I am only into RC, and the other stuff ni MA is just useless fluff, to me.
That doesn't make me an idiot, that makes me someone who knows what I want.

Tell ya what though... I'll have my copy forwarded to you for $20 per
year, if you like. Voila! I'm happy, you're happy, everybody wins.

Well, I figgered if it was "too quiet" we might as well get
somethin' goin' that was at least on topic. <g> Clinton slamming is
so... 2001.

You really might should have a look at the articles re the other
model plane disciplines. You might be pleasantly surprised at how
much info there is that can be applied to the R/C end of it.

Thanks to youse guys who pointed out that I'm an idiot too, for not
noticing that the magazine is available seperately from membership.
BTW, when I use terms like "idiot" I work on the "it takes one to know
one" principle.
