I just want to complain... So since I can't always drive far to an open space to fly my heli's I've been waiting to get my first RC car and what better car to start with then an 1/5th scale Baja.... So I get it today read the manual its about 2pm and I fill her up and start ripping it around my yard... Not 10 minutes later my old grumpy neighbor comes over and says turn that FU**ING thing off. and take it somewhere else. Mind you My parents have had this house for 10 years and we have never had any issues with them So i turn it off and ask whats wrong and he says ... That thing is obnoxious and i don't want you to ever run it again.... Needless to say... I just laughed and said sorry to bother you but its 2pm its not late and this is my parents house. So i go back to running it and he calls the cops... they show up about 20 minutes later and he says and I Quote... I have a disturbance call can you tell me whats going on... So I bring him to the garage and say its for this and he go goes 1st this is the dumbest call I have ever been on 2nd that thing is awesome my son would love it and 3rd I'm not sure how much you value your relationship with your neighbor you can either use it elsewhere or just keep annoying him cause your not doing anything wrong ANYWHO I had to get that off my chest

Did you mean to do that? Yeah its called a crash landing its a new trick

yeah some grumpy people just don't like it when there neighbors are having a good time. my one friend has a motocross track in his back yard and we all have very loud exhaust on all our quads and well every time we ride his neighbor calls the cops. they show up and pretty much say we are not breaking the law they cant do anything. but they are still required to show up if they get called. just ignore the d-bag and go tear it up

Neighbors...I live next to one who is a major annoyance...

He called the cops when I cut down two trees in my backyard! Claims I need a permit to do that. There was no permit required.

Then one day I took out my X-Cell 60 #1004 out and hovered it around, it was putting out a lot of white exhaust smoke...mind you this was at 1pm on a Tuesday and my backyard is fenced in. The neighbor's neighbor (one house over) is a grumpy old man and comes over tells me to put it down to which I responded "do not talk to me while I'm flying!" and continued to hover it around for the next 2 tanks.

Yeah, screw your neighbors. We all have the right to act like inconsiderate assholes and can do anything we want any time we want to. Yep, keep at it guys. Those neighbors you keep pissing off will be the same neighbors that will stand by and watch when someone breaks into your house and steals your crap in broad daylight. Being a crappy neighbor isn't kewl or awesome, it's just being another asshole making other people's lives miserable. Just remember, it isn't just the people who are complaining that are annoyed by that self entitled crap, it's all the other neighbors who put up with it and say nothing. Just don't expect help from any of them when you need it, it will never come. Why should they care about you when you care about nothing but yourself. Just venting about crappy neighbors...

Be careful...your neighbor may start playing loud polka music at night and playing gin rummy outside with his rowdy seniors group.

RC Car in front yard at 2pm: No problems. Sounds like your neighbor was taking a nap and got woken up by the noisy toy. No worse than a leaf blower.

Hovering a 60 size heli in your backyard: Unless you have a 10 acre backyard my question is: Are you freaking NUTS? Your fence is 6' high. I don't know if you noticed, but the helis can fly higher than 6'. When they get away from you (for whatever reason) they kill people. If my neighbor fired up his 60 heli in his backyard, I'd want to have words with him too.

Believe 1/2 of what you see and none of what you hear.

LOL you should have faked crying and said "Ok, Ok I wont run it again, don't tell my mom" and as soon as he walked in his house and closed his door, you should have started it again and race it around LOL

I had a neighbor call the cops because I was flying my electric heli and taking aerial photos. I put a picture of his property in his mailbox thinking most people would like a nice 8X10 glossy of their property. Now get this, I was always over my 5 acres, at lest 300 feet from the road (he is across the road), nowhere near his property, it was a slant view of his house.
Cops show up and I show them the equipment and the picture. A lot of interest in the equipment, then they tell me the guy is a nutcase and calls them almost every time someone even drives by his house to slow. Any way cops, tell me no problem what I was doing.

I think about the hereafter. I go somewhere to get something, then wonder what I'm here after ?

I live on a 1 acre property. Was cutting the grass, my wife was had the radio on the other side of the property at 2:30-3pm. Old guy calls the cops. Cops came said dont worry he will be dead soon. NICE!
if people work nights or have babys trying to sleep...
Now if I was close to the house next door and was doing anything outside that was noisy and could be avoided, and a mom came out and said nicely her baby was sleeping I would stop(I got three young kids). That does not sound like the case here tho.

GOT FBL?

Our hobby is so small already and being an annoyance could lead to a city council shutting you down or a township meeting. I think of being an ambassador every time I fly at a park or in my yard. I am not more about my rights, I am more about not interupting peoples normal life with my hobby.
Some have actual come to enjoy watching my fly and come out of thier homes to watch.
If I every had a complaint I would try to come to an agreement.
But to not care, to continue to be an anoyance, I could never do that.
People have normal lives and interjecting the sound of our hobbies into it is sometimes rejected.
I would hate if my neighbour ran his weedwhip 2hrs a day. Legal but annoying. I am a nightshifter.
A drive down the road may find you a spot to drive your car but being an annoyance to your neighbours may need an apology.
Like said, neighbours look out for eachother.

A friend of mine had a simular issue with the same car. The problem is they are pretty darn loud and he had a nieghbor that worked a mid shift so it was waking him up. He now runs a brushless 1/8 buggy to keep the peace with the nieghbors .

Maveric get real! People understand that sound. It is what they don't understand that annoys them. Teaching and understanding will get you farther.

If the houses are close,the person should have enough common sense to know better so can't blame someone for coming out ticked.If ya have to do lawn work,cut grass ect... people need to deal with it but to be flat out disrespectfull is asking for it..I had a stock Losi 5T and them 1/5th trucks/buggys aren't quiet.I had enough respect/common sense to take it else where..These things are also like flying 50/90 size helis at home around other houses,people ect...
The 1/5 scale trucks/buggys are twice the weight of a 90 size helis and their huge..Ive seen and had things go wrong mine and glad I went to a open field to play with it.
Once had the throttle servo fail wide open.Hit a bump and the truck had to of went close to 50ft away in the air and lucky for me it landed on the roof so I was able to kill the engine..If that happens on a neighborhood street with houses close,cars parked on the street,people walking on the sidewalk ect... That truck will do some MAJOR damage or worse....

I would be ticked too but im the kind of person that would have a little respect the first time asking but wouldn't the next time.I also wouldn't let my 3 year old play outside with one running around.Each his own I guess but I was raised different and glad I get along with everyone in my neighborhood ..
