Default Has RcTech Been Hacked Like My Last Club Race?

I'm not sure what else to do about it. Every time I click on a thread, phishing ads pop up on my Galaxy S7. It happened last night. It worked fine earlier today. And now the same thing is happening again. Once the ads pop up, they won't allow access to RcTech. It doesn't happen on any other website on my phone. My desktop works fine.

No issues on my tablet. I have a very good security system on my phone and tablet to prevent things like that from happening

rctech shouldnt allow any ads unless they are rc related. that would help a ton. and any ad that automatically pops up and takes you to a different page and wont allow you to go back without closing and reopening your browser needs to be banned from the internet! so frustrating im almost to the point of staying off rctech.... well almost

This has been an issue on iOS devices for a long time. I REALLY wish they would allow up to use Tapatalk on mobile devices.

It seems to be better if you use the full site as opposed to the mobile but it still happens. Makes it REALLY frustrating on use on the go.
