Thread: Kiwi Assistance Please
10/01/2018 10:19:33

Thanks for your help.

I sent a pm a couple of months ago, so there is one waiting for him.

Brian was probably responsible for my getting involved with the Airsail kits and bringing them over to the U.K. At the time he was flying a Chipmunk and wanted to build a Tomahawk, but the Airsail brand had been dormant for a while. Although there is still a lot of work to do on the kits to bring them up to date, we can now supply a range of spares and there are a few "old stock" kits available of several of the models. The Tomahawk is not an easy kit to manufacture, but Brian was very keen to have one and we can probably scrape enough bits together to send him one.

Can any of our Kiwi forumites help please.

I'm trying to get hold of ZK BAP (Brian). He has been absent from the forum for some considerable time. Does anyone over there know of his whereabouts ?

He was wanting an Airsail Tomahawk kit and I am now in a position to help him.

I was once in my LMS (now sadly closed down) when a chap returned with one of those mini helicopters. "I can't get it to work, I've tried everything" he said. The shop proprieter picked up the transmitter and looked in the compartement where the dry batteries fitted. He then lifted out the battery box and saw that batteries were fitted in just the side that was visible, with no batteries in the other side of the battery box, Clearly, the chap hadn't read the instructions and lifted the battery box completely out of the transmitter. "Oh, I thought the other batteries were reserve ones" said the chap.........

One of my favourite sayings, quoted from a well known song of the past.


Peter ! That's speciesist ! Go stand in the corner and no figgy pudding.

Now where did I leave that banana ?

Thread: NEW POLL - Does your club welcome multirotor flying?

Generally multirotors are fitted with cameras which are banned at our site, due to being next door to an extremely sensitive MOD site.

Bad news kids. Daddy shot Rudolf, so no presents this year.

Good news. Venison for dinner.

Went to the field yesterday.

There were 3 of us there. I had several great flights with no mishaps. All in all a good day in the fresh air.

Very little wind, no rain, relatively warm and blue skies. Not what we normally expect 3 weeks before Xmas in North Yorkshire !

Hi Minze and welcome.

Model flying family ?

Upside. No problem justifying a new model.

Downside. Keeping it to yourself !

See all the trouble you building lads would save yourself if you went ARTF. cool

Yes, but we don't get bored when the weather is too bad to fly. We know how to mend them and are always too busy finishing a model when there is house work to do. wink 2

Keith, I don't know. Flying toy planes. It just ain't cricket!

Oh, I don't know.

Some models I have seen have born a resemblance to cricket bats. wink 2

Just a couple of suggestions Nigel.

Make your battery hatch easy to access. Best if you can make it between the motor and the wing (ie windscreen area.

Secondly and more important. Make the nose leg steerable. Much better than trying to rely on the rudder with a tricycle undercarriage. A tail dragger will pivot about the axle line. A trike will try to follow the front wheel and if it is fixed, then they will fight each other. You can't have a castoring nose wheel !

Thread: Did you start with ARTF and move to building from kits or vice versa?

I think the "Other" category is a polite way of saying, if you are an old fart that started building before proportional RC and iron on film, then vote here.

That's me. wink 2

Thread: My Hermes
11/10/2017 18:43:36

Check with My Hermes to make sure they have the correct address.

However it could be that a delivery driver saw a dog at the gate and perhaps decided it wasn't worth the risk. There again if he had your phone number he should have called.

I have a great deal of success with My Hermes and to date they haven't damaged any of my parcels, which is more than can be said for Parcel Farce.
