    One of the benefits of a forum like this is so newbies can learn. If you don't want to help you are correct, you can just not answer the questions. It is fortunate that many members here like to answer questions and help others out. I personally will post an answer and politely show them in the manual where the information is found via a link.
    I like to think Rule #14 applies here too - 14. We take the "be nice" rule VERY seriously! We do not tolerate discourtesy or disrespect.
    ;)

    They said even an educated/trained ape can fly a Phantom 3.

    Yeah, but only if he will RTFM.

    Not one single one of us came out of the womb as experts in flying R/C aircraft.
    I know that I read the manual, and forums, and watched videos, and read reviews, and about 3000 other things while awaiting my first quad, and even though I read it, there's a hell of a lot of information to process, and it's just possible some of that might get forgotten amidst the information overload that many of us put ourselves through ahead of time.

    It's not hard to answer a simple question. And it makes us look much less like a bunch of knob-jockeys when we take the time to politely help a new person.
    If you can't be bothered helping a new person, then don't. But perhaps you better also never ask a question yourself either.

    @Ezookiel,
    Um kind Sir, I think you may have slightly misunderstood the true intent of this thread. It was meant in jest, and therefor the humour inside. No one is here, saying that they wouldn't help a stranded Pilot.

    We have all Been there, and perhaps in the future will revisit, and we'll be all déjà-view.
