Thread: Data protection regs

Should club secs be worried about this when the DVLA regularly gives out information ad-hoc and many companies sell lists of names, addresses and e-mail addresses I think a sense of proportion is called for .Added to that most ISPs use cookies to collect information, and how secure is that?

 The only thing against 35 MHz occurs if you still have old models with it installed but are now mainly using 2.4 in your latest models then one day decide to fly that. old hanger queen, and forget to extend the 35 Tx ariel, don't ask me how I know !!

Thread: The plane that saved Britain
01/04/2018 11:22:43

All the aircraft mentioned were important but were no use without crews. The men who flew them ( and the women who delivered them) won the war. Also important were those who built and maintained them.

Thread: wot4 on floats
24/03/2018 16:14:31

Some years back I was a member of the Reading club and they had float plane flying events some members Wot 4s on floats. The floats were made from eps by one of the members then skinned with thin ply. All flew well. I believe the same floats were used for Puppeteers.

X-Acto was the brand name of the favourite knife when I started 60 years ago. they were available in boxed sets of three handles and a selection of blades. These sets are now copied by various makers but are often of poor quality. I have a set of the poor copies but it is in my garage so 6" of snow is stoping me from getting them and photographing then to attach to this post.

ARC Ready 2 was very popular trainer in my precious club so all looked alike.

Decided to make mine a bit different and used Plasticote dayglow colours aerosols in a camouflage patern to create Shamoflage.

Thread: APC tiny bite
14/12/2017 11:30:46

Once spent ages trying to start a PAW 15 with APC prop, as a precaution I was wearing leather gardening gloves, after some time and many attempts I felt as if my finger we getting wet then found the glove and finger badly cut. Used a chicken stick there after.

Music as you fly, Why?

It seems that many people today are not able to do any thing without some drug addled pop star screaming in their ears or another spouting rap cos he can't sing for ??This will mean that even with a quiet electric model they will not be able to hear when the motor stops.

Sadly that seems to be the case in many small rural villages, the price of a 'place in the country'

Just a small point, the law that allows Americans the right to be armed was started when there was very little law enforcement and the 'native Americans ' were trying to protect their lands against the 'white -man', The weapons available at that time were mainly non- automatic and often muzzle loaders . Times have changed and so have the weapons available. but the law has not kept pace with technology.

I watched the program again last night ( I had seen it when first broadcast ) then I thought , footballers, news readers, comics ,pop singers and lots of 'party contributors' get knighthoods !

Does that make you feel proud to be British?
