|Thread: Flite (sic) Test paper and card model - hints?|
My glue gun is pretty useless. I suspect the problem is the wattage and the temperature it reaches. There will be less stringing the hotter the gun gets.It also leaks constantly.

|Thread: Horus TX battery|
I have my main screen widget set to show the actual tx transmitter battery voltage. It should be in the range of 11v or higher when fully charged, and is usable down to about 9v. That way I can be sure it is fully charged. I've not had a problem with battery life. it could also be due to the settings you have for the battery range. These should be set to 9.2 to 10.8. If the lower value is set higher then you will get early low battery warnings.
|Thread: What's a Watt?|
1.2kW is not normal for a kettle, most kettles are between 2.2 and 3kW.
You can get the NATO mils, which is a circle divided into 6400mils. Much more sensible.
Actually in 1668, it was a British cleric and philosopher John Wilkins who first proposed a decimal based unit of length. It was based on a pendulum swing and was 997mm long.
|Thread: OpenTx - Questions and Problems|
No. The bluetooth is for the trainer function. In any case openTX 2.2 can't handle this function yet.
You can plug a bluetooth transmitter into the headphones socket and use that, however its a great deal more faff than simply using headphones.
|Thread: Phone Volume|
Modern hearing aids are completely different. I've always been profoundly deaf in one ear and the other one is slowly on its way out. I got some decent hearing aids and the difference is amazing. They are tuned carefully to the frequencies you can't hear well. I can now hear clearly in my bad ear, something I've never been able to do for 60 years. I have a TV sender which means I hear everything going on in the room, but the TV sound is also sent to my hearing aids to supplement that sound. No the TV is at the volume comfortable for the OH.
I even have a device which plugs into my Horus, so all the speech goes straight into my hearing aids and does not annoy others. It also plugs into those radio things you get when you go round historic places instead of a guide. - You can't use headphones with behind the ear hearing aids.
I've worn mine every day since I got them and now after a year, everything is sounding far more natural. At first while I could hear much better things sounded tinny.
|Thread: Long wait for car parts|
When I damaged the boot of my Mitsubishi a few years ago, I phoned the insurance company on a Tuesday night. it needed a new boot lid, a bumper plus a few other bits and pieces. I had a phone call from the repair centre the next morning, and the car was picked up that day. On Friday evening they returned the car. 3 days. This was a new model car that had only been imported for just a year, and there were less than 2000 of them in the UK. Well pleased with both the repair centre and Mitsubishi.
|Thread: Prop Fixing|
The OP says the shaft is attached to the rear, this is an electric motor, however job done.
|Thread: Rabbit Problems|
Simple really..... **LINK**
|Thread: Friday the 13th|
Be positive. The prop looks OK.
|Thread: Unable to flash X6R with EU LBT firmware|
Not that at all, you will not affect your BMFA insurance and updating to the EU firmware means that older kit will meet the newer EU standard.
Personally rather than doing the half-way house of an upgrade to an older version of OpenTX, this topic illustrates why it is useful to keep OpenTX upgraded. Winter is approaching and now is an ideal time to do these upgrades.
|Thread: My Hermes|
You should try buying a new caravan BEB. - 3 new British-made caravans, all leaked within the first year. .... Could be a whole new long tedious topic.
On a more positive note, the stuff I ordered on Tuesday night at 9pm from HK arrived at 9am this morning by Royal Mail.
Think that's bad. I recently bought something from Germany delivered by DHL to the UK and then to be delivered by UK Mail. The delivery day came and went. No delivery, no card through the box. Looked on line, it said address could not be found. Re-arranged delivery for later in the week. After another non-show, looked on line again and same message.
Then drove a round trip of 24 miles to collect it, to discover two DHL/UK Mail barcode labels with completely the wrong address, and sat between the two, the suppliers delivery note in the usual plastic wallet with the address plain for all to see and correct. Complained at the local office. Waste of time. Have done 5 on line complaints and they haven't bothered to respond to any, only sent a complaints numbers.
Having said that, Royal Mail have been very good, stuff always arrives promptly, and the postpeople are really friendly.

Sorry to disappoint, but its message member, not massage member.
|Thread: Taranis x9d newbie|
I make no money at all from the manual I wrote in the link above. Over 150 pages and by far the most comprehensive manual for OpenTX out there, and free to download. The spirit of OpenTx is that work done on the project is freely given.
I wish it were that simple. It would be foolhardy to load a set of library settings and expect them to work on your models as expected without quite some tweaking, which requires knowledge of OpenTX and how the systems on your planes work.
I would suggest you do one of two things.
Either: start here **LINK**
download these documents and start doing some night-time reading until you have some familiarity with OpenTX,
Or: Ebay it.
As a newbie flyer and also only slightly pc literate, I would definitely suggest the latter. Almost certainly you will need to update the system with some of the latest software.
|Thread: WOT 4 CG and adding nose weight|
I think if you read my post, the Cof G is exactly 82mm.
