There was a period of time during which the use of the pseudo pejorative "Knob" was considered a no no here.

Knob is a term that sort of mockingly refers to folks who like flying rockets that are anything but 3FNC and a high performance propellant - what some lovingly refer to as "toy" rockets (yes a toy rocket with an M motor can exist).

I for one am glad the TRF knobs have emerged. Luckily WiK save this thread from the unwritten TRF1.0 rule that there must be photos. I thought it probably existed for TRF2.0 to but who can keep up with the rule changes :p

a 12x snitch, okay some of the rules might be changing, but the unwritten one about pictures should always remain. Show me a picture of a 12x snitch.:)

Less strange and more humorous to the members who were around during the knob inquisition. Or at least me.

Clearly I am the very epitome of a knob.

I have 4 saucers, 1 pyramid, 4 Goonies, one plus-size Goonie, 1 remarkably unstable glider, 1 lighthouse, and one piece of go-se that spins a lot but doesn't go too high.

See my title for more details.
