Someone else mentioned it in this thread. Airsoft is a hobby. Hobbies cost money. If you wanted to join an radio controlled airplane club do you think they'd appreciate you showing up with a $30 Walmart 2-channel POS? No. They at the very least expect you to have a proper 3 or 4 channel airplane with a real 72mhz or 2.4ghz transmitter. In other words, they'd expect you to have $200-$400 worth of equipment.

It used to cost upward of $1,000 to get into this hobby. You can do it now for about half that. If you can't afford that, then get a grip on reality. Hobbies aren't free, and those of us who have spent a lot of time and money on it have no obligation to accomadate those who won't.

"Someone in a Prius tried to race me at a stop sign the other day. I couldn't believe it. I had him for the first 100 feet or so but I can only walk so fast."
