I personnaly liked being on the battle field with the tanks. It would have been
very difficult to control and aim them from a distance. If there was an elevated
platform to control from, like they have at R/C car tracks and Battlebots, that
would be different.
My two cents worth.

Subject: Rules Question:
I'm not bringing this up to tinkle in anyone's coffee, but I'm confused. If you
check this link: http://www.rctankcombat.com/archive/current/msg00004.html you will
see a mailing from Frank Pittelli in which he mentions that the battlers were
standing about ten feet behind their tanks to aim better. Isn't this a flagrant
violation of the rules? Section IV, items 6 and 7 define the conditions of a battler
being on the field, and aiming isn't one of them. They are even marked with the
skull symbol to denote their safety importance. Now, before anyone gets mad at me, I
would like to say that I think I would actually prefer to be on the field with my
tank during a battle. Better control, better aim, better idea of the terrain around
you. I play paintball, so being shot doesn't concern me, that's what the masks are
for right? What I'm saying is that we change how we play to match the rules, or we
change the rules to match how we play.
