for some reason Jon it is the whole of this forums principles that all 2.4gh sets should be burnt in a pile as Satanist and corruption of our children and any one selling or should i say PUSHING 2.4gh kit should be branded in public, etc etc etc.
personal i find mad mikes postings "" it just doesn't penetrate it very well, especially at a distance and worse in sea water. "" as a gentle negative comment but others have been almost ferocious in there attacks to me
I don't know why because as a newbie i don't know anything,
but the two things i have found about this boat forum in the last couple of months is never ever ever, EVER mention anything about IC engines as they are all Satanist devil engines, so is any thing to do with 2.4gh controllers. gawd knows why because every time i open my big trap it has a 40Meg hand unit rammed down it. but no one answers simple questions
I only popped back to let the few Satan users what i was up to as i have found that a car forum, yep thats right a radio control car user forum has much more helpfull and less angry members on it and one is willing to me a mentor to me , which is also some thing else banished from this forum., I will be running on the car forum a load of pictures and where we have mucked up , because every time you post something you get ten ideas to try instead, mostly there proven or done before ideas, but for some reason on the boat forum its a " your one your own , matey" answers
as an exsample look at this thread, lets start it with a standard newbie question, what do i look for when buying new equipment and what should i generaly be looking for
, is there ONE ANSWER here that says any of the things i have been told on the car forum. Buy a famous name brand , for parts etc, try to ask if it can been seen working, borrow a boat /car take it with you with a set of crystals to test it, , certain models/makes have standard faults, if you do buy one that does not work try these points to see if it was this that has broke, ect etc etc, instead we are now talking about a sea going bait deliver boat that i stopped writing about on the chit chat because of the abusive remarks and knock downs, sad but true i am affraid
its a shame really but i think most newbes would be better off with a mentor either in person or on line , some one willing to learn as well as teach, i know cause i am one on another forum on another subject and it makes a massive difference.
and the thread marked what to look out for when buying second hand equipment to me strikes the mark as a fantastic sticky that most newbies would want to read, but alase not here
