Sad to hear this. Was hoping to meet him one day to show him the restoration of his 1/4 scale SE5A which I have tried to bring back to it's former glory with my limited ability, tis nothing like the past master did but I have tried. He only lived down the road and it is one big regret I never made it. RIP sir,I can see why you were so admired as a builder and designer..

Thank you Martin, most helpful and appreciated.

Thanks for reply gents.

Jack it has powersave on the unit, servos plug into one side bank of connectors, opposite bank go to rx.Separate battery and switch to this unit and usual battery and switch to rx so if this battery fails the other one kicks in.

John thanks for that will have a look.

Can ask some of my mates at Gaydon tomorrow.

Would anyone happen to have the instructions for one of these that they could scan/copy please. Purchased model with one of these fitted and been messing about haven't I, all seems to be working ok but need to be 100% sure. Any costs incurred will of course be reimbursed. TIA.

Your usual neat and tidy build young "Steph", pleased to see you back in shed and sharing.

Wish I could get motivated, this blooming wind we have been having most of the year I look outside and think whats the point of building anythingsad

It's just the same as folk moaning about having to sit and watch that load of carp on tv, leave the room or turn it off. If folk do not like the magazine recycle the blooming thing, I put mine in the docs surgery waiting room when I have finished and do notice it getting read. Not everything in it is for me, helios, drone etc.I do appreciate though a lot of people doing their very best to make a meaningful contribution to our hobby and think they deserve our appreciation, I'm very long in the tooth and do not totally agree with all this electric writing, personally I enjoy reading my mag down the garden with a cup of coffee, each to their own, we all have opinions bit like Marmite isn't it!

Through reading the issues I am thinking of FF build, it looks interesting and a challenge and something I would never have contemplated in the past. DD says he's only in his fifties but looks eighty cheeky

Re the best place to live Erfolg is your home and where your family are. Without any restrictions of all the places I have been it would be Singapore as was 40 odd years ago.

I believe Cymaz lives up the road St Austell area. Certainly can't beat the surf here with those Atlantic rollers pouring in on the backend of Irma. Staying in The Unicorn, do you think you might be getting mixed up with Perranporth re the pub on the beach, The Wateringhole?

11/09/2017 23:50:05

Congratulations Cymaz, 51 years us and I still believe I'm the gaffer, yeah dream on sunshine.

If I had known would have gatecrash the party as we are in our 2nd week in Porthtowan, bloody wind do you ever get to fly down here 😆

Had enough last year listening , Weston Park  this year ended up turning my aids off as I was constantly saying for lords sake shut up for ten minutes. Sounds like I will need to turn them off again Sunday.

That would be good if the cowl is built up Danny.

Yep I would opt for the Navy Nimrod single seat version, Mk1 which had the unswept wing.

Is there one at Cosford Danny? I cannot recollect one there!

I am always amazed at the dedication and skill levels of some builders, you are part of that exclusive club, IMO.

I am looking forward as to how you will be attaching your spats.

As to absent instructions, I have surprised myself, in that I thought I did not bother reading them, until a problem arose. Now i recognise with a build I am doing, that I do read them far more than I thought. I guess that many drawings of models have the bare minimum, in the way of detail, as it takes a lot of time to fully detail and annotate.

It's not the attachment of the spats he needs to worry about Erfolg😁😁😁

Oh gawd he's back and looking over my shoulder says he.

Coming along nicely mate, just got back from hols is why I didn't reply to email

Now you're talking Mr F. hopefully can clear build backlog and join you. Simon (Your SE5a supplier) built one not long ago, in camo markings. I like the silver but how and what way I do nor know, heard people having trouble with the silver tex. What change to turn it into a Nimrod , for obvious reasons cool
