I am glad you responded hurri... No disrespect to you! And don't get me wrong I only wish I could build as well as some veteran R/C'ers!

As for discussions about building, I think that there is still plenty to discuss at meetings even though guys don't build anymore. For example, for any ARF out there, there are infinite numbers of engine, prop, fuel combos, not to mention the various electronics that go inside. Each combo results in a different power and weight of the aircraft, distributed in different areas of the plane, then resulting in different flying characteristiincs for each setup.

I find that there are so many ARFs, as soon as I maiden one, I'm discussing with the guys to determine my next ARF!! r :P

That's not to mention the hundreds of maneuvers that these planes can fly nowadays....how to execute a maneuver is something fairly generic, but each pilot may have his own twist on it.

I know I could spend hours talking to other pilots about these things, especially if it is over a beer or two after the meeting at the local pub. :P

Again, I think it just boils down to the many aspects of this hobby. Unfortunately life seems to be getting in the way of building these days, not the ARFs. Arfs came around because guys are choosing to spend their time flying, and otherwise at their job, with family and at other obligations. I am thankful for ARFs, or else I probably would not be as involved in this hobby.
