OOps! Wasting time at the water cooler... again!


How do you get rid of a post?

Instead of getting rid of it, we are having it as a place for a friendly chat about flying and flyers and foam and like that...

That would be a good idea, but nobody here ever talks meaningless nonsense

We could change the name of this thread to, 'The Water Cooler' and gather round and talk flying and flyers and foam and stuff...

Wow! an entire thread full of mindless drivel! that's the best Idea you didn't have, Whiskers!

More seriously, (though not much) from your last comment, did you happen to see the post by the guy who wanted to create a website to share designs and discussion about flying rc? Posted right here in the scratchbuilt foamies forum. hhhhmmm......

Springer, where I have been lurking a bit is in your OSG thread. You guys are having way too much fun...
What a great design that has proven to be. I remember when I first looked at this group, how impressed I was by the way you cut a big plane from a small sheet of foam.
Have a virtual pat on the back. Pat pat pat...

They get a bit snappy with each other over there, don't they.
I'm relaxed about the build or RTF thing. Do what you enjoy, that's what it's all about.
I've had experience with only 3 RTFs.
The first one was a Wing Dragon I bought for my grandson. It was supposed to be RTF but in fact it was RTC (Ready To Crash) Lots of stuff needed to be done in order to make it airworthy, but it was still not good. The rotten thing even had non-standard 4 wire servos, one of which was not working. A new 2.4 Ghz radio, brushless motor and ESC finally made it go quite well.
I would have been far better off to have scratch built instead.
