I think we should all stay noobies! Why? Because we should keep pushing our limits and try "new" things.

I think a noob is no longer a noob when he realizes how much money he will constantly have to spend to remain in the hobby That's my 2Cents

I think it is when you stop asking questions and start giving answers.Also you stop caring how much it cost. Jason S.

Even though I sometimes have the right answer to a question, I will always consider myself to be a newbie because I will always keep asking questions and trying to learn new things.

The challenge is what keeps me going.

"Newbie" "Noob" "Noobie"...
Always asking questions.... always learning and trying new (newbie!!) things.... always growing.

As soon as we stop gowing.... we start dying!

Newbie is a relative term. I can fly circuits and 8s and hover all ways around (though only tail in if I'm low and close). I've been on HF over a year and I do help folks with queries, quite a lot, and I can engage in meaningful heli discussion. Yet I'm a newbie still. I can't do any aerobatics yet, I'm still trying to get a consistent coordination of rudder/cyclic during turns and I can't even do a bit of low fff without ploughing a furrow in the field.

For ME, when I can do some mild 3D, hover nose in low and close, take off and land in any orientation and be consistent then I won't be a newbie any more. Oh and I forgot to mention crashing. Pilot error crashes should be down to like one flight in a hundred or better - like plank flying.

Yeah socal, like retract the Tx antenna, hang head mournfully and start walking slowly toward the expected impact site plastic bag in hand.

Its all relative to who you are talking to. If your skill set is significantly lower than the person you are talking to, you are probably a noob in their eyes.

Agreed

Plus when you learn to just accept that crashing is all part of flying and just go out and enjoy the hobby.

Some of my best flying is done right before I crash as I am pushing my skills. Then I usally dumb thumb it into the ground :mrgreen:

I buy in bulk and keep plenty of spares on hand.

Nothing worse than not being able to fly because of a part.

I agree with you. Although I do know what to do just before I crash I still consider myself a noob. I can line up 6-10 packs without crashing but not more. This is noob!

When you can hover in all of the "4 points". I think you can do anything once you perfect those.

You're always a noob. The day you stop knowing you're a noob they're either throwing dirt in your face or people are calling you bad jerk names.
