We often hear "Try a search" or "Search First" when asking a question. I was about to ask a question about the differences between the MA open tailbox vs. the closed tailbox, when I decided to try a search. Shocking - I actually found the information exact information I was looking for.

Who'da thunkit?

Almost everything there is about helis has been posted here at one time or another and a simple search will find it.

I still ask a question in an open forum with a new topic when I need info though.It is just more interesting and fun that way.
Without the human element and personalities involved it wouldn't be worth my time.

I guess they could just close all topics and not allow new ones.
All the info is already there and a simple search will get the results you want.

Personally,I prefer to ask the question.

I literally never use the word literally right.

Search? Where's the fun in that?

I like to post redundant questions just to tick people off. Really! Try it some time. Nitro or Electric? Or What's the best 50 size heli? Pinch or Thumbs? So forth, etcetera and so on.

There's nothing like a pointless question to bring out the crotchity, opinionated old farts (aka: GimbalFan).

I just wished this website had better search functionality. Like dropdown searches while you are in a topic that only searches the topic you are in.

Cmon, do a search already. This has been brought up so many times!!

I do agree about the functionality. Single thread searches would be great.

Yeah, so I hear. Uh, you should probably get that looked at. Proly clear up in a week or so.

Okay, good luck with that!

Not I. I find that the search function brings up like 100 threads of things I don't care to filter through to get to the information I want.

So I say ask away. If you search, fine. If you don't, I understand. I prefer you to try to find it before asking, but will not badger you for not using it. If I'm not in the mood to answer the question, I won't reply at all.

What torques me is when someone asks a question and the response gets snooty over the person not searching. Have you really USED the search function much before telling them such a thing? The search function is not magic and it is very difficult at times to find exactly what you're looking for.

Here's an example. A good one is "setting engine mixture." Lots of people have questions about how to set it.

Look here to see what came up...

https://rc.runryder.com/search/?do=...sortby=lastpost

Enjoy filtering through all that to get to what you want. How much of that was relevant? 10% maybe?

Or how about "minimize CCPM interaction."

https://rc.runryder.com/search/?do=...sortby=lastpost

Again, a lot of "junk" threads that have nothing to do with minimizing CCPM interaction come up. And one page? Surely there's more about that in this forum, but yet that's what came up.

Give a bro a break when he asks a question. It takes a lot of ingenuity to use the search engine and it's time consuming. You have to enter enough of the correct words to make the search specific, and yet not so many that it whittles down the results too much.

I'm just sayin, next time someone asks a question, try doing a search for what he asked. If you find it right away, tell him what to enter in the word engine. If you don't find it right away, then why are you getting on HIS case for not finding it?

What's not helpful is whining over his lack of successfully using the search engine.

Aarron29..I agree completely.I hate snobs.

If these snobs don't want to answer questions,stay off forums.
If those snobs have a question,I suggest wiki.....

I always do a search first, and ask if I have not found the answer. If it seems like I never ask questions, that is why.

I have little use for absolutes and ultimatums like never and always. Too much depends on the context and there are always exceptions. A course of action may be perfectly logical under one set of circumstances and utterly malapropos in another.

So you never always think in absolutes.

+1, most of the same questions have been asked time and again, so what Its funny to the Crusty old farts like myself but its all new to a guy just getting into the hobby. Many are "jaded" and snap with "Do a search" but its true that there is very little current interaction in a search. You may or may not find the information you are looking for----- and if you don't--- ask again-- who cares, you might laugh or gain a new perspective on an old question. Oh , while I'm here, what's the best 450 ?

This search engine on this site is very helpful and useful and have saved me countless hours.

It's a complex, costly, glow powered anti-gravity machine!
