I just bought a set from SWM last weekend, a set of mains and nose leg. They seem quite good, and have a good range, in use, not sure yet until after a few landings...

Mine flies very well. I prefer a model which isn't too easy to fly, I get bored otherwise.

When I've flown it, I deliberately flown it into the stall - at low level and recovered easily, because anyone with decent flying skills will fly this model - people who've crashed is because they've expected a floater, when it isn't.

A couple years ago, there were three of us flying the same models, in formation, and when slowed down to almost standstill, all 3 models stalled at once, did a tumble and all three carried on flying - no problems.

That's the way to do it, ask a technical question, like, what radio do you want to use in the model if you buy it, and what receiver, etc do would you put in it when you buy it.

The person will then go away, knowing that he knows diddly-squat about aeromodeling and his true intentions are found out : Scammer!

I had that yesterday - for a roll of wing seating tape I'm selling currently on BMFA classifieds and Ebay and here.

Just checked, and the email alert originated from this site, so be careful, there are not very nice people at this very moment snooping round here, waiting for some poor sucker to fall into their web...

Another good model was this. Flies even better, and much more power. And looks more scale- in fact it is.

Not made any more, was called Partenavia by Hobby Lobby.

I have a Cox .10 No big deal. Would fancy a 9 or 14 Cylinder radial, though, such as this:

This is the second incident I have had with this receiver. A fellow club member has a small sledge hammer in is van. Most satisfactory. Not much in a modern receiver.

What rx was it?

Agreed, get an approved electrician to go through the entire household circuit, especially if the installation is old - i.e, 30 years plus.

Many fires have started when old wiring has been damaged over the years, and importantly, if your consumer unit is an old fuse box - get that changed to RCD and MCB board as soon as possible - it can prevent you getting an electrical shock, if something went wrong.

Maybe I've got a good idea:

In a magazine, there is no plan included, but, there is, inside a free plan, but not in the magazine.

If the person wants the plan, the person will email requesting one, will send him/her a free plan, with just a 2nd class postage paid for by the magazine.
(To avoid non-purchasers of the mag getting a freebie - there is a code in the magazine, which much be included when the order is placed.

If you do not want the free plan, then you don't order, so say, from a monthly publication of 30,000 units, normally, you would need 30,000 plans. But if only 400 wanted the free plan that month, or whenever, it would cost much less than having to include 30k of plans in the magazines - both would be environmentally viable - less waste and less cost for the publisher.

What do you think?

I've still got the original grey one, it was my first electric twin model and flown it hundreds of time. Still using the same motors, but on 3s Lipo, which is too light, so have to use a 4000mah 3s to compensate for the same weight batteries it used to fly on: 7 cell 1800mah nicads - which just about flew it.

On 4000, I'm getting 30 mins, and only need 1/2 power as full power is silly!

Also, the electric cooker must have a local isolation, if you use the switch on a socket with a full load, it will arc, especially if you overload it.

Overloading causes fires, and can invalidate your house insurance.

Ideally the total load of any one appliance must not exceed 13amps, which is the rating of a single appliance. So a 3Kw kettle will draw 13amps at UK voltages. If using 4Kw, then you will be overloading that socket, unless as you indicated, you have 2x 2kw ovens, which is fine, but normally ovens are wired into their own MCB/RCBO not on the ring main.

Added to this, the supply wires must be a high capacity. (and the MCB a 40A one)
