    Hello my friends..

    I need to write this for the community as it has occurred to me that I dont have thread like this.

    Between my Youtube Channels, my Facebook Pages, Emails & such.. I get more than 7500+ contact requests each months. Thats about 100000 technical questions a year. I do my best to answer them, but I dont have time to address each one. And instead of RC Addicts / folks becoming upset, thinking I ignore them - this explanation maybe the best way to go about answering the requests I get. It's nothing personal!

    I do not answer RC Technical Questions in my "Visitors Messages" area - or through PM's requesting help. Sorry, theres only so much I can offer - but one of the major resources I provide is this forum. Technical requests in the above form (PM / Visitor messages) are discarded.

    If you have a RC Technical Question - please post it in the forums, giving others a chance to speak with you as well. This will get you an answer faster than sending me a note, as I am usually busy assisting in making RC Adventures, Designing the site, Answering fan mail, or out filming. Not to mention the building of EPiC RC's!

    Thank you for your understanding!

    Chris, respectfully, I think you need to read my post again. It says my Personal PMs, or Visitors message area of my profile. It has nothing to do with people posting openly in the forum. Opening my email to 25 pms everyday of technical questions is not why i built the forum. The common forum is for tech questions.. not my email inbox.

    Cheers :)

    Ridiculous. When I PM you which bodyclips are the best for my kit I expect a reply back in less than a minute. I can't be bothered reading the manual, that is what you are there for.

    ;)

    You're right in posting this %100. I've had to do the same thing with ATV forums in the past. And boy do people get pissed when you don't reply. My response (it was even in my signature for ever) was "we have a thread for that" and %99.999999 of the time, we did. With pictures. And video. And detailed instructions. lol.

    I sold above mentioned forum several years ago, and only visit it occasionally now. But I guess since it still says admin under my name, people think I know everything and I still get FB messages and PM's and emails asking me how to fix their ATV.

    All that being said, I'm a little upset you haven't responded to my Youtube question asking you about a new motor for my Wraith....... ;) :Grin:

    lol. Kidding of course. Love the videos, love the forum. Keep up the good work.
