Sames shady to let moderators troll threads and users

Billy, i was thinking if you still had your laptop and your VTOL airplane thing you might rather enjoy the realflight RC flying software.

I noticed they had that airplane in the game. Depending on your radio for that airplane you might just need a dongle or cable to try flying it virtually with the controller

im betting my sarcastic evangelical cleansing in hellfire comment was taken as political and that's what caused the deletion. or maybe somebody answered back to that, idk. i made the post Thursday evening and the thread was gone Friday morning. don't know, don't care. but daves thread won't go anywhere. 3 things iv learned about forums over the last 20 years.
1. authority has no sense of humor
2. a forums gestapo are typically made up of megalomaniacal narcissists who even when proven to be over reaching don't let up, they double down. which always leads to frustrated users and an us VS them mentality. i have literally watched that destroy more than one forum. i don't think it's possible for a person to maintain any kind of humility or amenity when they're hidden behind a wall anonymity with empirical powers. not so oddly enough it's the power hungry looking to self impose ideals that seek out these positions of power, usually receiving and maintaining the prestige through being a yes man and butt kisser. it's a status only sought after by sociopaths.
3. it's easy to pick up where you left off. so now we have a new thread. enjoy.

Iíve still got them. Itís been 5-6 years since Iíve seen an RC flight simulator. They looked like late 80ís video games last one I tried. I didnít get the point of it.

Dragon.

I’d be ok if they’d given a warning. Or just closed it. But to completely remove it is wrong.

I'm blown away with new version. It came free with my EDF, but only has 6 aircraft in that free version. Everything on transmitter functions the same (safe mode/ changing rates, ect)

My brother and nephew been learning to fly with it. The two airplanes I've flown operate nearly identical with the software.

They have done it before so it shouldn't be surprising they would delete another one without explanation.

I'm glad my airplane is a beat up trainer, lol. Tape install was total fail. Holds on in the air, but super ugly.

My neighbor gave me permission to rc at school, so if cops come that's what I'm telling them, lol.

Airplane seemed to max out altitude at 450 feet in beginner mode. That's if telemetry is accurate, it didn't look 450 feet in the air but i have no frame of reference.

im sure with a turbo you could make 150. just throwing that out there if you're actually looking for motivation to pull the trigger

Gotta say $320 for fluid service on a Ferrari sounds pretty reasonable
