I don't mind when people ask me questions, dumb or not. I get it all the time.

Only thing that bothers me is when I start to answer their question, and they completely cut me off before I spit out 2 words. Very rude IMO.

This usually results in me only saying "yeah" or "no" for rest of the conversation.

I was in the parking lot of a hardware store where I had just bought a set screw. I had my chopper on the tailgate making sure the screw fit.
2 guys walked up and one of them said "my son is looking into get into these things" "whats it cost a couple hundred dollars"?
I started naming off gadgets and prices (radio 500 dollars) (starter and equip a couple hundred dollars) Helicopters 1 to 2 grand a piece (I had 3 in the truck). Permit etc etc
He was speechless, until he said (well what do you do with them)?
To which I replied "I fly them"

well, to be fair there are guys IN the hobby that ask the scalers "can that thing fly inverted?"

i don't think you'd be asking that question when you put 200+ hours in a build regardless of the $$$

if it ain't broke, break it.

Some one had a tee shirt with all the answers posted on the back. Maybe someone has a copy in their gallery and will post it again.

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

I say no it is electric you didn't see any smoke right? You'd think they would go oh yea, or feel embarressed but somehow these strange people don't even feel dumb or anything for asking.
To be fair...I don't see any smoke behind the vast majority of gasoline engines.
No smoke from a car and I can't hear very many cars go by at all except the tire noise.

Saying that there has to be smoke for it to be a gas powered engine should be more embarrassing than asking if it runs on gas.

You are not better or smarter than anyone because you know a little something about toy helicopters.lol....I would say it's closer to the opposite every time I spend a ton of money and time on something that does nothing more than make me grin

Answer the questions without the attitude.
It will make you look smarter.

Lol flydan, you are too funny...

The fuel is not nitro methane. It is Methanol,

Sure there is some nitro methane added but its not a fuel in the percentages we use.

Technically these run on glow fuel but some people in the world have adopted the word nitro I think because it sounds more exciting.
