FLYING WINGS: the scourge of RC


These ridiculous looking obnoxious "airplanes" should be banned. I believe the loud pusher props on these things and their unusual appearance have contributed to the closure of many flying areas. Gone are the days when a grandfather can walk with his grandson in a park and point to a radio controlled Piper Cub flying gracefully in the sky, introduce the boy to the friendly pilot and learn some history in the process. Instead? the same granfather/grandson team is assaulted by a high speed wing flown by some punk who spits on the ground and chases dogs (or children) with his toy. This is part of what's wrong with our country. Please help eliminate the rude people from this hobby, it's better for everyone to shun these renegade "pilots"

I own 2 flying wings, 3 cubs, and everything in between. Wings are good just for simplicity, and they can be quite graceful too.
Now if they're being disruptive or dangerous to people and animals where they're flying...well the type of plane doesn't matter whatsoever.

Oh yeah..and the superfly is awesome...and not a pusher

Wouldn't happen to be a hair more than 99mph, would it?

I have read so many of your posts about flying wings. Why do you hate flying wings? They are just like any other flying device, except for 130dB noise (added to by lynyrd skynyrd from the 1300W sound system in their pickemuptruck), inconsiderate patterns and mid air collisions.
It is good to talk to you; you are a legend

Delinquent kids and their obnoxious toys... Really, flying wings aren't even planes. They're just WINGS. I made a flying wing in half a second once by cutting the rubber bands and tossing my Slow Stick wing across the room. It was a lot quieter and flew much better than the noisy public offenses that those park punks think are "models".

Signs should be posted at parks: "Fly a REAL plane, dammit, and wash your hair".
