Unfortunately the homepage that I and many others had worked on for the West Sydney slope soarers club was attacked for a second time but this time all info was lost a stupid act on a forum set up in 2004 to support young and old alike with information and help for new people coming into the hobby .Dont know how they got through RCG system but they did and now its all gone

It Saddens me that there is the rift between these groups , Perhaps not internationally but in Australia , its the us and them mentality. The whole thing seems to loose sight of what we like to do and thats fly RC models regardless of the discipline we are in . Unfortunately Power flying in New South Wales is taking a huge hit with club fields being lost at an alarming rate. That aside its a few bad apples on either side of the fence which in turn leads to each group condemning the entire clubs or park flying groups .
its was nice years ago when everyone just enjoyed the company of like minded people and getting together at the field spending the day flying and talking with people who become good friends. Instead it seems that the talk is about denegrating each other rather than enjoying the hobby. Still thankfully I've met a lot more of the nice people than bad that still enjoy the flying the building the talking about flying and different models and exchanging of idea's rather than exchanging insults .
Anyway enough of a rant from me ,onwards and upwards.
