More and more depressed. Every day it is nothing but bad news. Now fields are starting to go to electric only.....WTF. If it isn't the government then it's your neighbor. I may just quit coming on here so I don't have to go take a Zanax.

I agree. It is disappointing. I'm not sure I'm depressed about it but we are definitely under attack. I have created my own flying field on my own rural property and will work diligently to get along with my neighbors so I can fly at home. It's a rural area and no one has complained about our miniature donkey with his full size volume yet so I should be good.

Under attack by whom? Do you really think the federal and state agencies are targeting nitro and gas powered rc heli's and planes?
Its more than likely these clubs are within a noise ordenance zone and thats about it. I've seen clubs here in Calif that are "e" only because of the noise issues.

I think most of these places that have gone E only are because of PITA, think the world owes them, whining babies that have nothing better to do than to complain about noise they mostly cant even hear, most of the time they are indoors watching TV to begin with... These are the same people that go to the beach on Spring break and bitch about the noise. Go to a restaurant and complain about the wait time on Christmas, bitch bitch bitch....

the same people who hide in their homes all day long, dont know who their neighbors are and who's whole purpose in life is to be miserable and make other miserable too.

the same people that park in Handicap parking at the mall "cause they cant walk"... then proceed to walk the equivalent of 2 miles inside the mall going from store to store...

showing a preference will only get you into trouble, 90% of everything is crap...

...I'm building a new heli...just waiting for the support stuff to come in. I have the new Hobbywing Platinum PRO V4 160A -HV ESC ready to install, and a Spartan Vortex VX1n...does that help some?

I'm also waiting for a conversion kit to be finished so I can convert my Agile 7.2 electric to gasoline...

Our club has a noise ordinance they follow and so far it's working. Mainly it's the plankers props they use. I also have an alternate field I fly in and everyone around enjoys watching us fly...and they don't mind the noise.

I agree that unfortunately on this site there is just not much going on. I remember years ago coming on here and there was so many new posts and now there are very few everyday and a bunch on just off-topics.

I love this site and Mark does a outstanding job. I hope the RC helicopter comes back strong, but I have my doubts. There are just so many fewer hobby shops (not online) that are still open and supporting new RC Pilots. I hate to see so many less advertisements on here.

It does sound depressing. i lost my club field a few years ago and have an electric only field but it's mostly plank and drones. It really sux because I luv flying nitro and have to sneak to fly them. I can't even remember the last gallon of fuel I burned.

I made a mistake once, but I was wrong?

Under attack by the Federal government regarding drones, by drone flyers really screwing up our 100 year traditional hobby, by locals who came much later than the flying fields complaining about models flying around and the noise....

Well at least I am not the only one on here that feels the same way I do. Just to make every one on here feel better last night I traded two airplanes a harrier and a u can do for a 450 dominator. The last of my nitro planes are gone and as far as nitro slabs I will not miss the mess left behind on the air frame and the peeling monokote from all of the oil left behind.

the first time I got to experience a giant scale plank with a 2 cylinder gas engine do a low pass my jaw was on the floor, no giant scale electric plane that large has even come close to that level of awesome. The sound, smoke and noise are what makes it. At least with electric helis we still get nice blade farts and gear train noise to enjoy.

Anyways, I agree with the noise complainers. Definitely the same breed of people that move near a full size airport knowing full well it was there when they bought the place. Now once they are a homeowner they think they have right to complain and try to get it shut down all of a sudden.

A rather obstreperous guy with a sound meter went out and measured electric 700 blade farts to prove that they were louder than his gas planes ! Of course the objective was to ban helicopters all together.

The economy is toast and the hobby is dying anyway.

Well I was just using the all electric fields as an example. Seems like we are getting hammered from all sides these days. What the hell did we do to deserve this. The government acts like we are a bunch of criminals with nothing but bad intentions.
Another thing now that the government has implemented this crap you know what you are not hearing any more in the news.....thats right all of a sudden there are no cases of people flying "drones" at airliners, or are they conveniently not reporting any of it now that the government got its way. HHHHMMMM!

Interesting... not many UAV strike reports in the news?? The govmunt has always controlled the propaganda message spewing onto the citizens. You need to read both liberal and conservative sources to balance your thinking.

Neither of the two sources have it right. You need to think for yourself. When someone is trying too hard to convince you, they are usually wrong.

no you need to stay away from the radical liberal ideology altogether. thats what is killing us now. i consider fox a liberal outlet because they only champion Rinos. Anywhere you find george soros money is a libral cause. liberalism was created to destroy the fabric of america slowly with a thousand cuts, liberalism is soft socialism that eventually transforms into communism. if your 18 and not a democrat you dont have a heart, if your 40 and not a conservative you dont have a brain.

ZZzzz zzzz...

YOu might want to go and actually read the definitions of the ideologies you love to bash.

Capitalism and socialism are economic systems.

Democracy and Communism are political systems.

They are not the same. Interconnected sometimes but not the same. Stop reading ultra conservative propaganda and do your own research and it will open your eyes.

For example, China is a Communist government with a a capitalist economy (in some ways more capitalist than the US, definitely more so than Europe). Most of the western European countries are social democracies that combine a parliamentary democracy with a partially socialized economy. The USA is a federal republic (not a pure democracy) with a partially socialized, partially capitalist economy. And so on.

Unfortunately the world is not simply black and white.

If you say you want absolutely zero socialism, understand you will be giving up a lot of things you use and take for granted today:
* No social security
* No medicare
* No unemployment insurance
* No free public schools
* No taxpayer funded police and fire
* No taxpayer maintained roads (tolls everywhere)
* No cheap home loans backed by the government (Fannie and Freddie)
and so on...

If thats what you really want feel free to keep voting for Grover Norquist's buddies.

Dear Jharkin,

Your list of free beez is anything but free....as one example I have NO children in school and Still pay taxes to educate others children ....I pay into the much raided SS fund that will be broke before I get any return from said fund, I pay $20,000 for Med. insurance for my wife and I,( no free bee for me ), I've NEVER drawn unemployment fund age and so on...I rely on myself for my betterment NOT a handout. I put half of my earnings into a system I benefitted very little from.... and so on.......

Good Day
