Thread: The thread for your subscriber questions and queries **please do not start a new thread**

Hi Paul,

If you did go digital only and wanted a specific plan, all back issues which include the plan can be purchased separately through Only certain plans will be going over to Sarik, so your safest bet is to buy the back issue and then you will also have the article.


Thread: Christmas Caption Competition!
02/01/2018 10:45:25

Thank you for all your entries! A few that've tickled us include -

John Stones with " RCME forum mods on new weight loss regime...Lipo suction. "

& BEB with "Doubts are raised as to whether new EASA guidelines were really drawn up by someone who had actually flown a UAV."

But the winner for the Christmas caption competition is -

Dane Crosby with "No Guys, I don't think you quite understand the concept of FPV."

Your prize will be in the post for you today!

Hi Chris,

It could be worth checking the issue again today and/or refreshing your browser and clearing your caches. Sometimes everything gets a bit stuck and says you should be paying when you don't need to, clearing caches can sometimes work wonders! If you don't have any luck, PM me your subs number or address and I'll look into it further for you.


This sounds like a direct debit for our print and digital subscription, if you'd like to PM me with your address, I'll look into it for you.

Hi Robert,

Yes! It is now available with all of the normal back issues in the 'magazine' section of the website.

Hi Andrew,

I'm sorry you haven't had a reply from the subscriptions department, they normally take a few days to reply. Because of the Special issue, we're a bit out of sync, so we only received our copies in the UK last Thursday. I'd give it another week and then if you still haven't received it, let me know and I'll look into it for you.

Hi Dave,

It could just be that when you signed up, you missed the cut off date for the special issue and your subscription will start with the November issue but to be sure, if you give the subs bureau a call (number in post above yours), they will be able to confirm this for you.


Thread: Did you start with ARTF and move to building from kits or vice versa?
12/10/2017 19:40:30

Two more options added... Started with kits and plans and moved to ARTF and 'other' for all other possibilities.

Thank you for your feedback yes

12/10/2017 15:16:23

Thanks to the suggestion by Peter Gain, we have a new poll. We want to know how your flying/building has graduated?

Did you start with ARTF and then graduate to building from kits or building from plans, both or neither.

Discuss below!

The tech guys are still trying to find a solution. They wondered if you'd mind letting me know which browser your all using to access this (that doesn't work)? As they've checked the default browser on android 4-5 and that seems to be working okay.



Thread: Caption competition!
28/09/2017 13:04:01

As always, thank you for all your entries. The winner is...

David Mellor with - Having boasted that is was still possible to comply with the new EASA regs, Brian was having trouble piloting his new pet bumble bee out of the boot.

If you have any photo's that you think would make a great competition, I'd love to see them!

19/09/2017 16:29:08

Thanks to Pete Willbourn we've got a new photo to caption!

Thread: Traplet statement
03/08/2017 09:31:38

Please all take a look at the additional statement from Sarik, now included in the OP.

02/08/2017 09:44:12
Morning all,

Please read below the official statement from Sarik Hobbies in regard to Traplet.



Sarik Hobbies Ltd. are pleased to announce they have acquired the rights to sell many of the products and services previously offered by Traplet Publications, excluding magazine publishing.
A new web site is under construction and we hope to be in the position to offer these products and services in the near future.
We hope to update you again soon.
Sarik Hobbies
As and addition to the previous statement regarding Sarik Hobbies, please be aware that the company has not taken on any of the liabilities of Traplet Publications, whose creditors should consult the administrators MB Insolvency, using the contact details below:
Anyone who placed a credit card order with Traplet exceeding £100 should contact their card provider to claim their money back using section 75 of the Consumer Credit Act. Some card companies also offer consumer protection using a 'chargeback scheme' that may cover lower amounts, so again, please check with your card provider.
Sarik Hobbies
Here at Sarik Hobbies we are now getting close to the point where we can begin selling the former Traplet products.  We will post here as soon as things are in place such as phone line, website etc. 
Just  a quick note here to clarify the original Sarik Hobbies statement, that we would be offering "many of the product and services of Traplet"
We can confirm that ALL the plans and parts, including wood packs will be fully available, along with vac-formed and fibreglass accessories. 
This of course includes the old Traplet plans catalogue in it's entirety featuring the Brian Taylor, Dennis Bryant, Phil Noel, Duncan Hutson plans to name but a few.  The huge range of MyHobbystore plans are also fully available too.
Though not so relevant to readers on this thread, it's perhaps  worth mentioning that all boat, engineering, railway plans, line drawings etc along with kits from Myhobbystore and the former Traplet are included as well.
Sarik Hobbies

Hi Andrew,

I'm sorry you haven't received a reply yet, they do normally take two working days to get back to each email. If you want a quick reply, I'd suggest giving them a call on 0344 243 9023 as they will be able to help you immediately.

Hi Ron,

As Pete said, your confirmation should have had your subscriptions number on, it will always begin with '400' if this helps locate it. If not, customer support will be able to provide you with it on the email above or you could just give them a quick ring on 0344 243 9023 and they will be able to let you know there.

If you have any more problems, let me know


Thread: Caption this...!
24/07/2017 11:18:40

Thank you for all your entries, as normal we had a difficult time deciding the the winning caption is -

Rob Fairweather - I remember now, the last time we came here we looked up, but I cannot remember what else we are supposed to do .

If you drop me a PM with your address, I'll get your prize in the post!
