One powerful aspect of this online community is the potential for networking each others resources.

It may be that you work for a company that makes and needs something that I make or need.

Wouldn't it be great if you could help or be helped in your job by someone from the RC community?

I, for example, work for FKI Logistex (formerly Alvey) a company that makes conveyor systems and palletizers for the general food and beverage manufacturing market. It might very well be that one of you works for Pepsi, Coke, Quaker Oats, General Mills, etc, and could use something FKI makes. I, a fellow RC'er, would be more than willing to see to it that your needs get attention and a good deal.

You (all of you) might be someone who works for or owns a company that installs equipment, or is an electrician. We might be able to use your services in doing a project in the ChiTown area.

So, I am asking... what do you do for a living? Maybe we need each other.
I work for family and in the office we fix windows and screens, which can be of good use if you get a little crazy and drive an r/c car though a window! We also do caulking on commerical buildings, this end of our business is not very helpful to the general public because we have to be union and the average homeowner doesn't want to pay the dues.
