Holy Cow! October? Where has this year gone???
Hope you all are well and enjoying our wonderful hobby as much as I am. I have had a visitor here the last half of September and first half of October. You may all know him as "Sweeper" here on the site but he is my good friend Goran from Sweden who visits every year. I had taken two weeks off work to spend some time with him and we have been up to our knees in airplanes in the shop! This is just another example of how much I appreciate this site and you guys. I have met some wonderful individuals through our hobby and this site, and hope to meet more of you in the future. Why keep our hobby all to yourself? You know there is that one individual at your club who has been itching to build a scale model. Why not mentor them and share your building skills and any tips you have picked up from others? Or, if you are starting a build be sure and share your experience with others who are learning here on the site. Sharing your knowledge is the core of what drives our hobby!
Not a whole lot to cover this month in the site news. Just a few items to touch on.
1. Review of RCSB!
RcAdvisor.com has reviewed RCSB and gave it FIVE stars! Thanks to all of YOU for this. Our community is a special one and this just backs that up. http://rcadvisor.com/review-rcscalebuilder-forum
2. RCSB Mobile App for Android - It's here!
This is NOT a mobile replacement for the site. It is simply an app to tie all the various resources together. Hope you find it useful! Of our mobile users over 80% use the Android platform. Unfortunately I don't see us doing an Apple version because it's simply cost prohibitive because of apples current iTunes developer policies. Sorry iPhone/iPads.
3. Got questions on how to do something on RCSB?
Visit the FAQ (Frequently Ask Questions) Page by click on "FAQ" on the site menu at the top of every page for answers to your most common questions. http://www.rcscalebuilder.com/faq.asp
4. October Renewals
All renewals for October (and reminders for November) have been sent to those members via a Private Message here on the site (you can access your private messages by clicking on "My Profile" on the site menu). Also, all expired subscriptions have been downgraded to "Basic" members. Thank you all for your continued support of RCSB, the worlds Scale R/C community on-line!
Well that's about all for this month. The RCSB Monthly Pod-cast will be returning the middle this month after some reorganization. Hope you all have a great October and remember to measure twice and cut once!
