Default So I met this lady in HobbyTown

...but she had a boyfriend.

Anyway, I was very impressed with her knowledge. She had some sort of degree with automotive and had just recently became involved in RC cars. I appreciated her patience, 'cuz she got over my head pretty quick (but was still able to explain things simply.) Her and her boyfriend were wanting to convert a vehicle motor from brush to brushless. I believe she was successful even though they had to piece it together from parts (I had to leave before her and the HobbyTown guy finished putting it together.)

I enjoyed talking to her! I've heard the stories about how women aren't taken seriously in the RC heli hobby and I wonder if it's different in the RC car hobby?

Anyway, I hope to meet more women in the RC heli hobby like that lady (not that I'm comparing anyone, I just meant "friendly.") I look forward to learning from them!

Sounds like you had an awesome time. Too bad you had to leave before they finished that motor. I would have liked to known if they got it to work.

I have never had an issue with anyone not taking me seriously in the helicopter world so far. If they aren`t, they are not doing when I`m around....LOL

Anyway....I`m glad you had a nice time chatting with her.

Women like that are always taken, sadly. I've been looking for my Gadget Hackwrench my whole life. No deal. You can't blame the guys. Once, when I lived in Chicago, I was washing laundry. This really pretty girl came up to me to ask me about, of all things, my pontiac fiero. She was even wearing a jump suit. Black with yellow trim all the way down to the floor. She wanted to know all about the fiero. Then she started talking about her TransAm. Which she had done all her own work on. Like me, she hated alignments. Probably, who doesn't. Anyways the whole time, I just kept getting more and more engaged. All the sudden, she backed up like an inch and told me she was married. It was so heart breaking. We talked until my clothes were done. Oh well... I hope girls like that understand the desperation, so they aren't offended. There are very few and far between. Lots of time when there are, they've been goaded on by the boyfriends or husbands. But a girl who is genuinely like that...... To the guys that are lucky, well, yeah...
