I've noticed that this site has pretty much gone lame as of late, especially the classified sections.

We ain't the busiest site but we do have friendly posters. RCG and RCU have fairly good want ad sections.

Is it how the forums are organized or the lack of posts in them?

Take care and thanks for posting at WattFlyer!!

Definately not a facebook guy in the least. Back when I first joined it seemed more "active".
Just wanted to see if anyone was paying attention, and so far 3 are! I'm not the kind of guy that spends hours on a site "posting", got better things to do. Like when I go shopping, know what I'm going for, get it and get out! Unless of course I'm in a hobby shop or gun show!

So everyone else should post and sell and such and you should just come here and enjoy it? Sounds fair to me.

I am guilty of not posting much lately either. Life gets in the way sometimes and the interwebs get shuffled to the back of the line for me.

Wattflyer is and will remain one fo the best forums out there for sure!

I can agree that it would be nice to see more activity in the for sale area. Here's the thing I don't miss the drama that can go along with it. I see it on a couple of other forums I belong to, and it must be a MOD nightmare to deal with.

Bill nice to see you back life does throw us a curve ball once in a while.

Sometimes I wish more would post ... but then again - as previously said - WF stays better on topic and better posts. It is also one of the best mannered, friendly sites ..... not like one I can think of !

Default For Sale

I don't remember my last post here with most of my activity being at RCG.
I do look here first though.
My take on fewer for sale items is that shipping costs got out of control.

As a seller I have to almost give my stuff away if I include shipping.

As a buyer expected to pay plus shipping I can do almost as well buying new at my LHS. OK, I know the shipping is bundled in and I have to pay sales tax, but am comfortable in knowing I have local support.

Don't get me wrong, I do buy and sell on line and in the forums if the deal is attractive enough!

That is true. I just sold a glow engine (I know,... yuck, that's why I sold it) and it was over 8 bucks just to ship to Florida from VA. Crazy

As a real placed Texan, WF is simply the best site out there. The friendliest most helpful people with a real sense of camaraderie. Okay, RCG for extended techno , sometimes nauseating & exhaustive diatribe and classifieds but WF is home for me.

That's my $56.84 worth.

With that 56.84 is that including shipping and PayPal fees?

Yeah, I just received a replacement canopy for a model I got for free!

Shipping price for a pretty good sized box as quoted by UPS was about $14.

The other shipping option was United States Postal Service at $6.95.

One thing I like about this forum is its size. Large enough to have enough dialog, but not so big that threads are 20 pages long all the time and too much to read. TalkBass and CNC.com are examples of big forums, where 10 responses can come in between the time you read the thread and write a post.

p.s. Wattflyer is not lame.

Default Site gripe

I cruise rcg for most of my multicopter info, but when I first started in the hobby, planes only, I found this forum to be chock full of friendly, extremely knowledgable people. If I want to buy something, I usually go to rcg as they have pretty extensive listing, but I always come back here for pertinent concise information on most subjects concerning rc, and some really good jokes, thanks gramps . Hopefully my opinion is worth more than 2 cents.
Anxiously awaiting flying season in TN. New house has a private airstrip next door, 2000 ft grass runway. Our local field was closed due to Waste Management expanding this operations.
