Thread: The WORST plane you ever had?

Galaxy Models Typhoon,Very twitchy in flight even with low rates,all of the church roof to get it to balance. On second flight a heavy arrival partialy detached the firewall and even though it was carefully put back I never did get another flight out of it despite several attempts.

Ended its days blown to bits at Haverfordwest model show BoB finale.yes

Lovely looking model and as others have suggested 1.49 PAW will be plenty. My Mercury Matador is fitted with one but has a throttle fitted and spends most it's time at half throttle.

Your PAW is of the later type that could have a throttle if you want.Good luck.yes

Find a club local to you and get some time in on a trainer.You do not want to wreck nice aircraft like the Extra and Sukoi on your first time out and be put off.

Posted by Percy Verance on 15/02/2018 21:53:33 Hydrogen is fine in theory Dave, but the high pressures involved in actually filling vehicles, along with storage risks and possible pipework leaks at delivery points etc tend to move it onto the back burner.

A British firm is working on a system to store hydrogen in quick change cylinders at low preassures. They have featured on this forum as they have been powering a UAV with it but I can not remeber where.

Adders usualy give fair warning in the form of a loud hiss and just want to get away.

Thread: What Happens Next

In my 28 years sevice as a HM coastguard rescue officer I was involved in the rescue/recovery of many casualties in out of the way places. Many of these started with a search to find said casualty.

The advent of mobile phones was a great help But as David says in his [good advice] post coverage can be patchy.

One bit of kit I would allways recomend anyone carry would be a torch,even a small one can be seen from some distance by rescuers and one thing for sure sooner or later it will get dark.

Many phones have a torch built in these days but even if not the screen its self is a brite source, HM Coastguard helo crews say that with their low light head sets they can spot one from up to five miles away.

Great judgment by the pilot.

Plenty Adders around where I live,nowhere near as nasty as those above.Our daft staffi dog got bit [daft coz it got bit twice by the same snake] and its head swelled up to the size of a football. She did recover with help from the vet.

Last year saw a buzzard fly over with a live adder still wriggling in its tallons.

Thread: Tesla launch car!

It remided me of watching the Apollo/Saturn 5 launches live on tv,all those lucky people on site cheering and shouting as the Falcon Heavy left the same launch pad.smiley

Is space becoming an adventure again? I hope so.

Thread: Ridge Runt

HI Piers,My Coyote has a flat bottom section.

It also has a small rudder,a personal mod to keep it pointed in the right direction with out deploying the ailerons. This helps keep it up if the lift drops off .

My Ripmax Coyote,a Ridge Runt in all but name. At a fly in last year where it blew a hooley it was one of the few that flew.smileysam_1389.jpg

Richard Bach's book "Biplane" is also a good read.
