Halt the lies you hear aren't true !

By the way Ken the reason for clean underwear was because, in pre antibiotic days,if you were involved in an accident the chances of infection were less - when first world war ships were cleared for action standing orders were that the sailors change into clean underwear.

Could you not try it out by holding the transmitter upside down, which would also be easier if you use a tray.

Thread: Sitting down whilst flying - what do you use?
02/07/2016 17:49:23

I have similar problems and use a folding stool like this . I find that chair arms get in the way and if you ever make a mistake and get the plane behind you ( don't ask ) you can easily swivel around to keep an eye on it ,something impossible in a chair. I maybe should add that I fly from tarmac which provides a firm base which may not be available on grass.

My prize turned up today and its a Cap 20 wood kit, just what I wanted. !! But I suppose I'll have to be disciplined and go and bake my Christmas Cake before I open it - I'm running a little late this year !

Merry Christmas to you all, and to those who didn't win, keep trying, this is the only thing I got out of years of clicking.
