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.
