For days I've read threads that refered to the mystical Foo Shield. So I began the quest to find Foo and what he was about. The funny thing, my search led me to a thread that not only discused the legendary Foo but described some off the "court jesters" from yesteryear. We still find these clowns on RR today. Escotard comes to mind.
For us that did not know Foo...click and read this thread from the past

We who know Foo have wisdom of many years.

Knowing not of Foo makes one a Grasshopper.

Was a newb in his heyday. Found him on EBay, he used to sell "professional" built and test flown Raptors, along with offering flying lessons. Even as a newbie in definite need of guidance, after a few email exchanges I knew to stay away

Oops I confused foo with many lalo....noticed when I saw the location

Foo was a real piece of work. The "Foo Shield" was an often quoted classic. The Dude used to fly behind a piece of plexiglass on his back porch.

Are there any old timers on here that remember the clown that told us "his buddy" put NOS on his R/C heli and he got called out bad? I think that might have been Foo.

April 2011 was the last correspondence from Foo.
