One person has an issue with a post(S) and reports it and then the poster gets a point? What kind of judicial system is that?

Clearly we're all being targeted here and yet no one stands up and defends us ?
As was mentioned a few posts back - check out who's been viewing your profile lately.

IMHO, there is an uncomfortable relationship between those who's Bio's have been recently viewed by certain people, and those who are incurring penalty points for posts that go back quite a while. In some cases, several months.

A Moderator with a vendetta, or acting on behalf of anyone else to enforce such a vendetta, would surely be in breach of the rules. A clear abuse of power and a massive break of trust that goes with the responsibility of being a Moderator.

I don't think for a moment that Jim Bourke or Jim T Graham would condone such practices.

Practices that would leave this site open for accusations of Cyber Bullying and libel for the consequences thereof.

The very practices that many Governments these days are very cognisant of and are pushing world-wide to eradicate due to the enormous psychological and physical damage that may result.

I just got this today... Don't have a dog,, but do have a lot of dead ash trees that have to come down most needing a guide rope to steer them so I hope this will shoot the string to pull the rope up the tree... Also might come in handy to get models out of trees..

I've used the stick-on-a-rope trick a couple of times with success now.

A long, skinny sapling came in handy once too.

Also managed to get my FunJet out of a 90ft pine tree (well, my mate did ) using a fishing rod and sinker to get a line over the branch way up yonder, then managing to get the sinker to pull the line back down to ground level. Tie a light rope onto the end, and pull it back up and over the branch so that we could sway the daylights out of it till the 'Jet came loose.

Tried that another time, but kept jagging the sinker up in the tree. So I thought 'bugger it', and yanked on the line back and forth and managed to get a decent a sway up, and down she came.

And when all that fails, I managed to bail a plane out of tree with rocks ~L~ It gets to the stage where you can't be stuffed trying to save the plane any more, but you sure as hell want all those electronics back...

Went out for a sunset fly - 'Bear and Electro Streak.

Had a ball (until I flat-spun the 'Bear and went behind the treeline Fixable but )

3 FPV'ers where down at the field when I got there, and they renewed my desire to get into this form of the Hobby.

Anyone had any experience with it? If so, what would be a good entry-level setup?
