Hey....truth
i thought we where here for the support and help, and to come up with different ways of teaching people, for if not for our help, they would give up the hobby, and yes we all should have criticism and doubts about things and ideas, thats what makes this fun,,,,im a Tinkerer and i like to keep my mind busy......and yes some ideas just dont make seance, but i do notice another forum getting higher in ratings than others caz maybe they get sick of listening....im no super flyer or bragger, i just like to chill ad read up on new ideas, and try to make a few silly videos that help people, not make it so hard you cant understand... i know ive been bashed right out of this forum once......and had to change my name to come back,,,and till this day dont know why.....i had an idea someone did not like

but comon kids.....lets play nice......LOL

The "Gasser Guys Drama Club". Been going on for years, guess it will continue. The single biggest reason I don't own a gasser.
Fact.

Very true. However, I did not let that sway my decision to try a gasser. We lost many great guys input due to the drama and or site policy.

I still fly a century bird to boot. My curiosity got the best of me as to whether it was the machine or the builders. I guess I lean towards being a "modeler/tinkerer" rather than the PNP clan.

If anything, you are missing out on a challenge. Then there's the long flights plus no $25+ gallon juice factor.

If only most could be like the scale guys here. No drama in their threads. Just good stuff and lots to learn and long for.

I'm next on that list.

Drama or not you didn't have to go to RR and then the gasser section to read it all. There are other forums. I don't think that can be your whole reason for not getting a gasser.. if so that is a real shame because I think we all will agree [maybe for once lol!!] that gas helicopters are really great fun to fly.

Setup is everything, All my heli's can fly far better than I can pilot them

Drama is not unique to the gasser forum... seen it many times on the nitro and e threads too. I believe gasser guys are just more passionate and outspoken. after all the idea behind a gasser is to fly as big as possible with as little expense as possible in terms of support items and or fuel.

I still remember when I first came onto RR to ask a question about the little exhuast washer that came with the V2 muffler. I distinctly remember being heckled and made fun of, my guess is most guys on here had no clue what the flow restriction washer was for and made fun of it. after all the G20 had just hit the market. Things like "did you check your exhaust bearings too" if i recall.

But I didnt take it personal nor did it sway me away from this site nor helis... it was all in good fun.

Now going back to the original post. I understand now that Carey was just helping the guy out. but there will always be things in the background that alot of us are not aware of that are going on. So why a paying vender/advertiser cant manage thier own product intros... I dont know.

So to Careys defense, its not his design nor company...

BUT

it is your thread AND all the other "introductions" are not locked out.
so lets call it what it is. A political move to save face and protect a relationship for whatever benefit it may have.

Lastly I will add that when something like this happens... the nuclear option is not always the way to go.

FWIW,
it was a just bad role out on an introduction...

It can be summed up in one famous quote for Ali

I am glad Pete you made the correct decision in spite of me LOL!
It all works out in the end. I guess the drama at least brings in the spectators!! Not a bad thing in itself. Reminds me of an old saying in the entertainment business. A bad review is much better than no review.

Hey
Was it a good decision, I don't know. I am at the mid america funfly and was talking to Phil, Tom knows about this. He brought up his Century gasser and how he was afraid to fly it, how it blew up in mid air and had several incidents he couldn't keep it together. Now the goblin is 100% better than that, reliable where the Radikal wasn't. Pete you might want to try a Goblin some day, you might find out that man, you didn't need to do all the tinkering and being a modeler after all.

I think this thread has run its course and all parties involved have made their points. so to that end I'm happy to see that the freaky thread on the open source HB is back the way it was and open for discussion. Therefore this thread has served its purpose and no longer needed.
