In this age of Google and YouTube there is no excuse for laziness. You can find a video on how to do anything these days. If a person comes up to you asking you to do something they just demonstrated a lasting laziness proven by a lack of desire to type a phrase in a search field. I pretty much don't do anything for anyone anymore as far as setup goes. If a guy needs help mounting a wing on his P51 Mustang because it's awkward I'll do that. If a guy wants me to program his radio for him, nope, not going to happen. I figured that stuff out on my own, they can too.

I'm tired of the over sensitive entitled mentality of today and frankly am kind of glad it's pretty much all seasoned folks at our field. In fact, it is made clear that our field is not a teaching field and it's not a teaching club. We will help with the odd thing like a broken of missing part and doing something to get it back in the air but we don't really want the guy who bought the crappy high wing trainer with glow engine and old 72 mhz gear he bought off of Craigslist for a hundred bucks. That crap can easily eat up an entire day and we all work our butt off so that one day we have to fly we want to fly, not babysit. There are other clubs in the area for babysitting so we steer them towards those clubs.

Absolutely hilarious.. I don't see his posts unless I log in. Maybe I should rethink that policy.

I'll do a Sudoku or Cross Word puzzle every day. Maybe I should just work to decipher the Grey crypto code. You know- just to keep the brain cells in tune.

I got a call from NSA at Fort Meade this afternoon. I am to submit a proposal to complete my computer software project. It seems that GrayEagle speak is a notoriously difficult dialect to decode.

My error message is the closest they have ever seen to completing the decryption. They seem to believe that he is either sending real time N-Boat targeting coordinates, or ordering Chinese takeout. They are not sure.

BTW: THIS IS EYES ONLY

The Radio Controlled Hobby itself is very happening, it's just the Single Rotor not being selected and passed over by easier to get in the air alternatives.

People are held back by their MINDSET.

Few are interested in commitment and a challenge in current society's setting when it comes to a hobby. Some are just happy just get in the air ... Nothing spiffy. Can't blame them, but the RC Single Rotor community will not capture the new flow of capital.

Why don't we each try to expose and promote the RC Heli Hobby?

didn't you answer your own question ?? & It's Not about a Hobbiest capturing a Market

The TRUE Rotary Sorbet is only for a few: We are NOT making money /have little desire to make money doing it - we are in it for the CHALLENGE. The CAN DO : How ever We ARE CAPITALIST's
Rotor community will not capture the new flow of capital.
:easier to get in the air alternatives
: MINDSET

:Few are interested in commitment and a challenge
Why don't we each try to expose and promote the RC Heli Hobby?
Because of Mindset :

Why didn't the Thunder Tiger : Innovator - Scale / Sport ARF
Helicopter enter the Market like a a Stampede ??

what did they do wrong ? from AMERICAN Viewpoint - The Post Turtle Effect or Cultural Split. " They looked funner than FUN ! "

Did they Blow It ????

nah, it's due entirely to the fact there's not been a good hollywood movie or tv show recently with a helicopter as the star like another Airwolf or Blue Thunder or what have you. Lure the masses with a "replica" or even the hope of a good scale model for their rec rooms. These rc helis are just "powered" models.
