One Minor Snivel...

Not a real big issue, just an observation...I visit the swap pages often just to see what's being moved around, and I am amazed how many pilots post "...RTF..." in the title, then as I read down the description there is no receiver, etc...I even read one "RTF" that did not include the engine...THAT was extra...

Am I misunderstanding the acronym "RTF"? I thought it meant "Ready to Fly"???? I have a 3DHS 89" inch AJ Slick still in the box. Is it "RTF"?????

You are dealing with the public.
Some guys have no understanding of what is considered normal.
RTF - to me means Receiver ready.. plug in my reciever and go fly.
(It can include a rec, but so many radio choices it's hard to include a rec)

ARTF - can mean all kinds of things, like "add motor" or "add batts"...

Airframe only..... means just that.

Boom common sense.. done deal.

It goes back to the day when you had to build.

RTF = you did not have to build it. TurnKey = Bind in fly.
