Get someone with a drone to look for it.

Thread: Vauxhall In The Doldrums.....

The Insignia sports tourer is nice, but too small. Not really and estate, hence why I bought another Vectra, though not sure what to get after that, Vauxhall wise. I suppose the Passat is a big car.

That's a nice airframe. My sort of aircraft, aerobatic, but characterful. In fact flew my Wots Wot yesterday.

Where is the plan from? Might build one next winter?

Flew yesterday. The Seagull Ultimate -120 size in the photo above. Not usual I take this model, as it stays whole, although not too bad to take apart - still a pain.

Flew the Ultimate, re-cycled Agritug, A .15 size Alley cat and Wot Wot ARTF.

The Ultimate had a dead-stick, quite nasty if you get it wrong, but landed ok. Was the poor glo-plug (not running totally right), but also found the tank was empty, which didn't help! Replaced said plug now...

The DSX9 doesn't have a module, from what I remember, it is built in. Not sure, but worth checking.

I voted for "Spektrum", but not bought any new sets since last time. Also it is my main protocol, so even if I, probably would from now on go into Frsky, but won't be main set until a few years' time.

As the cost of Spektrum rx's and availability, as D. Williams said, be going to Frsky I reckon.

I also use Hitec, Futaba and have a Tactic Set. Hitec are good, but the Aurora 9 is a bit short on channels, and as they said, they are not bringing a new TX out, or a 12, then if you are not moving forward, you are moving back.

Heard somewhere that OS Engines in the next couple years will stop producing engines - or at least concentrate on gas (petrol) engines.

Judging by their website, there has been no new two or four stroke engines for the past 10 years or so...

One time, JR and OS were the pinnacle of aeromodeling. Look at the Swap-meets now, the average age is around 70, and the people there are thinking now of passing on - and selling their stuff, not buying new.

The Police are only following CPS protocol, luckily sense prevailed and after interviews and investigation, no further action will be taken with him.

The guy should now get free counselling as a victim of crime.

"Experts" are saying when you are confronted, you should make a risk assessment and use reasonable force. but in the dark, under threat, how on earth can anyone make a method statement on actions that could happen.

You pick the first thing that can defend yourself, be it a knife, screw driver and turn the tables on your attacker. If the criminal gets killed, then too bad. The criminal was known and his MO was known.

Ridiculous. It says, to call the police if you are able. so you say to the burgler, wait a minute, let me call the police before you attack me, but don't attack me, because I have a phone in my hand.

yeah, right!

One thing, in America, under the 2nd Amendement, says that one can keep and bear arms for self defense. If someone breaks in and you stop them, you can, whatever force you have.

Like Tony Martin, the farmer stopped burglers on his farm, and blew them away with his shotgun. That;s why crime is rampent, there is no justice for victims - only the criminals.

Never heard of them, although found a link: www.williswarbirds.co.uk

It doesn;t work, so assume, whatever it was, it is no more...

Maybe one will come up at a Swap meet.

No, all my gear is now 2.4. Sold 99% of my 35 meg stuff a while back. Kept a couple of JR Max 5's, a X347 and a Futaba FF7 and a Challenger 6 for nostalga reasons. Only have 2 JR rx's left, but won't use them for flight again

Seems there was a pre-flight briefing failure. Leaving a cherry picker on a live airfield, during an airshow means a serious lapse in planning. Did the pilot know, or allowed to use the grass strip to land, or not.

Why wasn't the cherry picker moved to a safer location, assume it was used for a previous aircraft and forgot about.

Thread: P.A.W engine factory vid

Only got one PAW engine - .80 ; Reason why is that I don't fly control line and regarding rc, engines are over the capacity I use, though their .60 is good, but larger I use a four stroke, anyway. Good to see they are still going, considering the turn in aero-modeling, in general.

Only live 20 mins away and been there.
