    Can you imagine!! AHHHHH!!!!


    No more RC's are being made.. this is a sad day. After all of the work I have done to the site and all of us have no more part support... Sigggghhhhh The ability to create new RC's is now gone..

    You know why? Because this thread is about what you would do if there was no more production of RC's allowed!!

    For this game.. all you need to do is post what you are gunna to today..

    You may use the RC's that you have now.. but if they break.. what are ya gunna do?



    Ill start...


    Now that RC doesnt exist.. i may as well find a job.... Lol

    Invest in some schooling for electronics and micro engineering, and re-start the RC world. It's not fair that our children might not know the fun times!

    So many of my RC's are old enough I can't get parts for them anyhow, so I make my own replacements.

    And probably do more gaming. Racing and flight sims mostly. :)

    Here's my plan:
    Only RC's are out of production, right?
    There are still tools, CNC machinery, etc....

    Ok.... Everybody on RCSparks.... All of our creative minds get together.
    We take all of our collective knowledge of what works & what doesn't, as well as build skills, etc.... Everyone could help in some way.... Even blueprinters, designers or just plain artists....

    Now, we all kick in a few bucks (lotsa members.... wouldn't cost much) & we rent/lease/buy a large warehouse & some machinery, tables, etc...
    & WE take over where the RC companies left off....

    Everything that becomes popular or fades away, does so for a reason....
    With the epic.... TRULY EPIC.... RCs we all could design/build, the hobby would make the greatest comeback in the history of anything.
    :cool:

    I'm not prepared to allow the death of the best hobby I've ever had, & the depression of some of the coolest & most talented people I've ever met (in any hobby... RC people are THE BEST!)

    LOL how's that? :D

    LMAO...

    Bro.. I would have expected nothing less :) That is what makes you truly awesome ... You are leading us right back to RC!

    Unfortunately .. the idea for the thread is to let other people know what you would do if there was no more RC available to us.. Even with machines!! (though your idea is TRULY EPIC)

    This is the land of imagination..

    Keith.. What would you do.. if the production of new RC's didnt exist anymore..? Are you a Hunter? Always wanted to learn how to Fly? Travel around the world? Teach your kids how to make fire with sticks?


    You name it.. you got it.. but it is illegal to make new RC's now!!

    Aw, dang it.... (though breaking laws by building RCs for the black market sounds like something I might try LOL)

    Well.... I have always wanted a Suzuki GSXR1100-powered golf cart.... :cool:
    Or a 4.3 liter V6 (262 c.i.)-powered lawn tractor.
    (outlandish redneck creations amuse the heck outta me LOL)

    Other than that, all I really have to fall back on is auto body work, etc., or MMA (maybe coaching or something.... 32's a bit 'seasoned' for a fighter LOL)
    Perhaps I'd take a crack at building custom 1:1 4x4s.... Not mass-production or anything, but a small business to keep me busy, with plenty of personal rigs of my own to have fun with :D

    If RCs don't exist anymore, I'll probably move on to learning more about 1:1s.

    To be honest, getting into RC is the closest that I got to learning about mechanisms like gears and suspensions and all that fun stuff.

    I'll probably take up a course in auto mechanics and learn that trade, build myself a car and go racing! Or crawling. Or bashing. Wait...

    Well, I guess I would spend more time with my wife. Probably use the funds that would have been spent on rc's for more weapons. I'd get that match grade DPMS SASS 308 that I have been holding out on. Those zombies aren't going to kill themselves.
