He appeared on numerous chat shows in his heyday and he was always very funny and entertaining.

He started out modeling knitted pullovers for one of the Cataloge companies, a major force before the supermarkets and the internet.

Thread: KK Southerner
23/05/2017 01:02:54

Just had a look in an old KK Handbook for 1953 and the Southerner kit was 48/11d (nearly £2.50p in todays money), that was a high end price for it's time. A Southerner Mite at half the size (32 inches) was 12/10d (55p).

The polyhedral version was for performance or you could build it with standard dihedral for relaxed flying.

A club that I was in at that time had a Southerner with standard dihedral as the club RC model which flew with varying success. Luckily the field we flew in belonged to the Cooperative Society and was 100 acres so a flyaway was not such a problem.

Thread: Glossary - your forum needs you!
22/05/2017 14:31:49

Aerobatic men also have different flite modes for different wind directions.

Binding; the Glossary says that the transmitter recognises the receiver.

Surely this should be the other way round.

As the man with the wooden leg said, "It's a matter of a pinion"

Only possible conclusion to this thread. If the camera had fallen off during a BMFA test, you would have failed. wink

Thread: How do they do it for the money?

Thread: Spring is Here....
21/05/2017 18:13:34

I was busy spraying weedkiller around my premises, too idle to load my planes and venture out. Forecasters say great weather coming.

Thread: Farewell

Could be, he has moved to Australia

Thread: Pilot Bails Out At Low Level

Was it Archemedies what got killed by a Tortoise hitting him on the head after it was dropped by an Eagle?

Thread: Un-even cylinder temps
19/05/2017 18:45:22

I was looking at an ad for a saito multi engine the other day and it said 'check operating temp on cylinder one'.

Thread: E-Flite Hurricane
19/05/2017 00:21:25

It was a total disaster in the USA, nobody has heard of the Hurricane over there. It was £100 more than a Park zone Spitfire (same company). They knocked off that £100 about nine months after introduction. Unfortunately after I had bought mine. It's a great flyer, really looks the part in the air, but the undercarriage legs are too weak and too far back. Best flown as a hand launched model without wheels.

Ditto, it was a long walk when you forget to light the dethermaliser fuse
