What about the dude with the magic rotor spray that would get him another 15 min in flight time.
OMFG!! Wave, that is the funniest F'N video I have seen in a LOOONNNGG time. You have to elaborate on the "invisible glass". Who was touting that?

Holly S**T that was funny!!!

He was in the AP forum I think. I would have to look for the posts.

Mark may have deleted a lot of that stuff.

Foo
You know you are old when the mere mention of Foo brings unending boughts of laughter and tears to your eyes.

Back in the day on RR there was a class of troll who would be self perpetuating in their trolling. You never knew if they were sincere and consequently in desperate need of help or just stringing everybody along. The most accomplished would trigger many hours of discussion trying to ascertain which camp the subject of the discussion fell into while occasionally dabbling in the art of heli trying to help them out. Quite often the help would extend to personal areas as that seemed the better place to start.

Many of us fell victim to this conundrum and the rest of us were definitely entertained as a result. While I posted rarely, Foo and Chicken would always cause me to almost post the question: Are you kidding me/us?

The one redeeming thing about Foo was his shield. It made his story almost believable although I dont recall ever seeing it or a believable likeness.

Foo: Was he a master or fool? That is the way I would best describe Foo.

For those who do remember Foo you may also remember he left his Raptor and TX out in the rain. That was the beginning of the end of his heli days.

Yup He accidentally left it out - had to go for a Dirt Bike ride and forgot about it.

The Foo Sheild Was real -- and not a bad idea ! A 4 X 8 piece of plexiglass sat on it's edge.
Supported on the end by a T- Shape frame of 2 X 4 / with the short leg of the T on the ground. Might of had caster's.

I Miss FOO

FOO WHERE ARE YOO ????

Foo
I shot Foo an email asking him to "check in". Stand by.

Just curious, is there a cure for this addiction?

Foo
Foo was one of us! He had some ways that were different than ours and he made us laugh. I'm assuming that none of his silliness was intended to make us laugh but I could be wrong. He endured a lot of ribbing from fellow members. He was ahead of the times if you think about it, After the recent accident that killed a youn man on the east coast everyone is calling for some kind of protective covering for the pilots. Foo had "The Foo Sheild" early on. I miss reading his stories and feel like Runryder lost a major player in the model helicopter world when he hung it up.
Carry on Foo; Junkpilot

Hey is that Hitlers plane in the background?

Not everyone is calling for this, I would say more people are calling for self policing.
