No, once again, I have only called you a jerk.

Not becasue of what you said, because of how you said it. Not to mention, all the useless posts after I asked a question.
the analogy still works, if you remove the jerk part...

I have to agree, I have been following this and although its been distasteful there hasn't been enough to shut it down. Please consider this thread closed for now as per the authors wishes.

You can make a request to one of the Moderators to have your thread closed.

Fred you can't close a thread yourself except for a for sale thread. A mod has to close it.

Trust me, If I had the power to shut thread down it would already be gone. Know this however that other all forum Mods WILL take action and close this thread as asked. Theres nothing to be gained on posting in a dead thread here.

I seriosuly wanted this to end long ago I just want to say:

I started this thread asking for the best plane for my money. I wanted a cool plane that I could fly a few times, crash and leave it. ... I did not get that. At all. Instead, I got an introduction to what I now consider to be my new hobby. I would like to thank all who helped me get into this and appologize for any time that we had arguments or discrepancies.

I would like to stay on this forum, but I don't know how that would be for the people here. My next post unless you guys want me to leave is going to be after christmas to update what I got and how it's going.

Thanks again.

Carl,

If you want to stick around, feel free to do so. Honestly, all of us do want to help. I would just consider this thread done and give it a fresh start.

Carl...Please don't leave......We definately want to know how you do with flying, and really want to know which plane you end up buying.....I personally hope you get the one we recommended because I think you will learn to successfully fly with that particular plane.....

Please stick around and keep us updated on your progress...Please know that after the hard learning phase, a wonderful world of many great models will be there for you to fly and enjoy....The first and immediate hurdle is the hardest one....persevere and you will eventually succeed...

I have to say as hopefully the FINAL post on this thread that Wattflyer members gave you is sound advice. And how you chose to use it is totally your choice but we all hope to hear more from you at some point.

About 85% of the people here can and will help you out given the chance. Most on the forum members are only here to have fun and help others.

Your welcome to make any new threads to keep us informed how your doing.
