This forum was started to provide an avenue for Indian RC enthusiasts to discuss their beloved hobby.  There are other large existing forums, but they tend to limit the posted content, because of commercial interests.  This site is intended to help Indian RC hobbyists exchange information freely.  There is absolutely no restriction on the usage of this site by any one, especially for posting and discussing commercial offers.

In summary, our aim/wish/hope/dream is for this forum to be the venue for people to post any great prices/deals on RC stuff, so that this hobby becomes accessible to even more people.

Here are some general notes/rules about this forum.

1. This forum is a personal effort by myself (My name is Anwar,  and I have been an RC hobbyist since early 2007). 

2. I am not associated with any commercial entity (which includes all RC hobby shops and model manufacturers or marketers).

3. While it is allowed for anyone to post reviews and comments on the models products they have experience with (including strengths and weaknesses of each product), we will not use this forum to intentionally malign any particular product or brand or seller.

4. If posts are placed under the wrong categories or boards, they will be moved to the right locations by the administrators.

5. As the user community builds up, more administrators will be added to the forum.

6. If you feel the need for a new board to discuss a particular product/topic, please let us know, and we will create a new category and/or board for the same.

7. Our contact email address is listed in the footer on the left side.  In order to limit spam mails, it is setup as an image that cannot be clicked.

8. You may also follow us on Twitter (http://www.twitter.com/rcindia) or befriend us on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/rcindia)

9. As it is noticed that spammers and SEO marketers are taking the pain of registering here just to put their non-RC related websites in their profile, it is a rule of this forum that only personal websites, RC related personal websites or online RC stores are to be entered in their personal profile.  Any other marketing related website links will result in the account being banned/deleted.

RC India - Flying and racing with open minds !



There are other large existing forums, but they tend to limit the posted content, because of commercial interests.

Today is an hugely wonderful day for me ! One of the items on my agenda when I started this forum was to see other forums lose their uptight and restrictive attitude, driven by commercial interests alone. Well, I see that Hobbycity links  and product links to other India based hobby stores are no longer blocked/restricted on another forum Wink  It took about 15 months, but the owner could see the writing on the wall.... with one or two posts per day there and a higher overall post count and activity here. A few more months, and it would be practically dead... glad that some changes for the good are being made !

Thank you all for making this happen Bow

I agree. There was no need for this forum had the other one been open for all. Inspite of that I visit the other forum atleast once a day and also do buy stuff from the forum owner.

Had this have happened some time back, I would have not left the forum at all. Nevertheless good that people with my mind-set (and I don't regret how I am) won't need to take such step and be a Happy Family on such forum!

RC plane hobbyist from Kolkata, but now in DC



I have had my share of problems with that forum  Bang Head...
When I first signed-up they would not let me have my choice of username... This is my story  -  I  had duly registered and  created my profile - I had updated my picture, my signature, and my website info. Then, I logged-in the next day (with correct username/password) but their system said that there was no such account (my laptop saves all usernames and passwords - so even if I forgot the machine would not)... I found this very strange, but proceeded to re-register with another username and was able to read/write on their site. Later, I realized that my username and signature (which happened to be my RC hobby blog address) was the reason of not letting me have my choice of username of their site. Were they so threatened by "IndiaHobby".  Now, one could argue that the username could be confusing to their members, then atleast the Moderator/Owner could have emaild me and migrated my data instead of canceling my account or the system could have just informed me during registration, and I would not have to waste my time...

Anyways, our interface is much more user-friendly (quite close to the Web 2.0 navigation style), unlike the other forum (i.e. that store's personal megaphone)... I truly feel at home here... lots of learning and getting to know some nice people in my city who share the same interests... Thank you RcIndia.Org

Sorry to sound like the "Soup Nazi" but some people will go to any lengths to just to put their links on any many places as they can, and boost their SEO results in Google searches etc.

Yes, March 9th is the 3rd anniversary !  I was wondering if we would hit 5000 members and 100K posts... looks like we will be close, but not there.

I am working on the logistics of a sweepstakes to mark this occasion.
