Could be a cycle, I've been a member for 13 years and I've "disappeared" for periods of time, lost interest in the hobby and back.
Well kinda, I have had short breaks myself... But... this is an overall slowdown, not just a dude or two, I think we have lost a huge chunk to the dark-side... multi rotor machines!

I see many of the same faces I remember, it's just the turnover used to work as we loose a guy gain a new member, but are there just less people joining as there are going quiet?

I admit this is pure speculation on my part, Mark or Will could tell us the numbers, if they were so inclined? But just from trips to the local field, and what the vendors are doing, I surmise many of the guys that would have received coax, or fixed pitch as a gift, received a quad or "drone" this year instead.

I stayed away from commenting all this time, last message they got from me since banning me is'" and the builders rejected the corner stone". payback's a bitch I'd like to say, but it may have nothing to do with payback, it' does come though, KARMA that is. Ironic after receiving a gift of 10lbs of broken heli blades from McKovalcson who sent them for free, after running a topic called "Gods Offering".

traffic down on heli sites? of course, too many guys want those wanker quads, helis are hard to fly. You don't even need to turn rudder to fly a quad.

wankers / plankers all in all the same thing. I've owned a quad, damn thing was so boring I crashed it out of boredom, then gave it to a friend. Only thing their good for IMO is FPV racing and I'd rather buy more heli stuff than invest into camera crap.

I don't get how "drones" have such an impact on our hobby. I'm sure eventually people will get bored to tears with them.

Just checked one of your popular post there and indeed I did not see your avatar which usually indicates someone who is banned. I sure hope it is temporary! Your threads over there including the various 450 challenge threads were very popular.

I am not entirely sure? The infraction says
Spammed Advertisements in Posts or PM
Then there is a note from Will that says I made personal attacks on him, and one of my PMs was reported? He goes on to say Some info was forwarded to him... Unclear if the information was in the PM... Because I have looked, and all my PMs contain no personal attacks, on him, or anyone else. I did say it was typical of HF to move a thread from the main. And I also said it was funny how much butt kissing went on, but that is not a personal attack, just a point of view, expressed in a PM?

I took the time to help a member to get his hobby king junk to work and I was attacked by mod's for some nonsense or another. It didn't seem to make sense to either of us. (the parties involved in the discussion) It would appear that they are very selective as to the "help" you can paypal to them. I didn't get banned...I banned them. Who needs the hassle of some dude calling you trash for helping a fellow "freek" with his toy?
There is some good content too be lurked for free though!

Well, there's a thread which was started after the site was down chastising our values for coming over here and and discussing our woes and being back there using it as usual when the downtime was over. I enjoy both sites. Nothing wrong here, and I perhaps would use it more if more folks who fly what I do were here. I get most of my TT corresondence here. Compass, there.

I think that thread I mentioned was started with the intent to be condescending by a self righteous person. No value in it at all.
