“The good old days” of model flying:
You need to have more fun and less ranting….said he furious about alll the regulation and very excited about the sub250gram stuff 🙂
waooo….you are best
Great rant Bruce I am with you and I have shared this video
there should be a international radio control model aircraft day
Am I seeing things or is there actually a crack in the left lens of your glasses?
Why dont yoy do reviews instead of showing all tne bad shit that some dwmocrat will cut paste yoy saying drones shoyld be banned
Im semi just fucking with you your a legend
Good idea to make it simple, back to basic.
@Bruce – Wonder if you would ever consider doing a video showing the servicing steps (and solvents to use) to bring a badly gummed up HP 40 engine back to life. This engine was last run in about 1972 and it would be great to see what long time R/C pilots do in such occasions. Can’t even move the throttle 🙁 – I know, putting it away without cleaning it is unforgivable so will severely chastise my 27 year old self (if I can find a time machine). Cheers, David [NPL]
Bruce never spoil a good story with the truth !!!!
Do you have any way to get hold of you or find out times you guys head out to the field to fly? I am a learning fpv quad flyer who is also in the waikato region and would love to see some others fly as that seems to have ceased around here, I remember travelling about 15-30 minutes to watch others fly when I was young. I also have a Heli I would love to learn to fly but need some knowledgeable help in getting started..
Hey Bruce! I’m a high school kid super into aviation! I‘ve been posting model aviation videos for the past two years! Could you please check out my channel? I’d love to hear what you think! Cheers! 🙂
It’s so hard to get my son interested in any thing that’s not Fortnight ..He almost takes to fpv but the drive just is not there..
The hobby drying up is much like what happened to kites. The Luddites don’t want humans to soar in any way shape or form….. we must all crawl on our bellies like worms and never dream of looking at the sky, let alone use it
BANN ALL FULL SCALE AIRCRAFT!
must have been a drone in his way
I just wish that all people on earth would think like you!!!!!This is so beautiful hobby that we must stay in this as long as possible!!!!This hobby is connecting people from all over the world!!!!!Big salute from Slovenia!!!🇸🇮
