I have been computerless for more years than I care ... But what I missed the most was R/C Groups. Although I would like to get my old user name back (and mayby I will) it still feels like comming home.

welcome back!

i'm old and non tech as well. i have an i phone, but the process might be similar.

1) click reply, then click 'advanced'

2) type what you want in the dialog box, then click 'done'

3) below the dialog box is a link 'attachments'. click then, then select where they are on your phone. mine says 'photo library'
4) select the photo (s) and click 'done'. the pics should attach, and then click 'submit reply'.

some sites make you post for awhile before they allow attachments. videos must be linked from youtube.

Can my user name be changed, it doesn't seem to make since to many of the members so I'd like to change it to something a little more conventional.

I get the feeling that some of my posts are ignored like I'm possible a troll.

crrcboatz new here but not to rcboating


Began rc boating 1977 Nitro till late 80s. Gas till 2013. Got out and have been shooting rimfire and paper with centerfire since then. Reconnected with 2 dear boating friends from Texas at the Dallas races a couple of wks ago. Super time. Came home and ordered a 51 inch offshore cat with twin4084s. Backordered so will be a month until I receive it. Will be looking for LOTS of help with FE boats. Excited to be back and around the fine folks in boating. My friends in Texas are 2 of the best human beings on this planet! Thank you Lord for returning them into my life.

Great site, Getting Started


Hi Jim, I am back to the hobby after 50 years away. I have just received my Wings from the NZMA and have finished, flown my first model (Sig Cadet Senior Trainer) and am loving it.
I have just acquired a Reed Falcon 54" from an estate which had been sitting around for years gathering dust and deteriorating. It had flown many times from 2005 - 2008 I believe but required a lot of attention.

I have cleaned it up, replaced batteries, electrics (servos, receiver etc) and have "stripped, rebuilt" & run the Saito 120.
I have commenced the search for information on this beautiful Biplane, and the only place where there has been recent discussion is on RCGroups :-)

I now need some technical information with regards to this model to prepare for the first flight, and any hints on flying.
My Question: How and where should I start this discussion ? for example, I need the COG, and throws for the Rudder, Elevator and Ailerons.

Thanks so much for your assistance,
Doug

Your best bet is to use the search function on the site to find any data on this bird that might be out there.

You cannot as far as I know.
You can lock a thread that you started, but it is considered very bad manners by some, as it closes of any further discussion.
