Reminds of my learning experiance in Germany. Didn't know Graupner boxed the crash's with the kit. Ended up an expert rebuilding the Taxi.
You take the high's with the low's and hope they are mainly high. It's the pits literally when you dork one but if you check it wasn't me. Somebody else shot me.

I've been reading this post, and can't believe that anybody could get that frustrated and have a "hissy fit" that resulted in them intentionally destroying the aircraft
I think I've discovered an added benefit to why I fly helis if you show just a little patience, the heli will self destruct on it's own, no "hissy fit" required.

My understanding is that the new ARF will come pre crashed and you will have a choice of CD to play while watching the plane burn.

club ediquete

If your club dose not now have a rule in their constitution they should have, regarding how one handles them self. There is no room for a person like that in our hobby period.
Green side is definitely not up

"Obnoxious behaviour and foul langauge are not pemitted."

That's from the club's Conduct and Safety Rules.

We're covered!

Preblem is having the cojones and moral suasion to speak up and make it stick to the person in question.

Re: Foul Language

I think that there has to be some concession as to when the rules in regards to foul/obnoxious language are enforced. If you bury your favourite plane, botch a landing badly, stall at takeoff, etc, I think that 9 out of 10 flyers will prone to letting a few choice words fly!

That said, doing that while there are young children around would not be acceptable, nor if you were flying as part of a show. It still happens and I think that it is just part of human nature to react that way at times.

Now I am certainly not condoning language like that when it is used ALL the time. That's where the rules about language and conduct could be enforced, especially if there have been complaints.

Just my 2.1245 cents...

Safety Precautions: Do not touch the rolling airscrew in order not to be hurt!

I'd like to offer you moral support, but I have questionable morals!

Years ago on a F/F field a certain wellknown flyer had endless trouble getting his very expensive F1C engine - in an equally expensive airplane - to start. He finally stood up in disgust, thrust the model into the hands of his wife and stomped off towards his car.

"What do you want ME to do with it?" called she..

"Oh, break the bloody thing over your knee" replied he ...

She obeyed.

As he stood there, openmouthed in disbelief, came a chorus from onlookers "You TOLD her to .... "

It's a good thing this guy doesn't golf. The water hazards would be full of golf clubs thrown in after they were bent. He should fly combat for a couple of years. It sure teaches you not to fall in love with your toy airplanes. It's a shame that what is supposed to be a relaxing hobby has turned into a source of anger and frustration. His attitude probably explains why he was flying alone. I hope he grows up and cools down.....

If you can't handle crashes, don't fly helis. I had a Hawk Sport for a couple of years, but haven't devoted a lot of time to it. Right now, I've had 4 crashes - 2 my fault and 2 mechanical. At the point now where one more crash equals the cost of outfitting a brand new one. I haven't got mad yet. Upset yes. Everyone said a person needs an open wallet while learning. One more crash though and I may give it up.
I never crash...I land with style!
