Hi Peter, My much used Ballerina has been recovered but is fuel soaked to the point I fear it's demise is close. Thinking of a 115% version as I have a 91 FS engine that is looking for a home, do you have Ballerina plan as pdf probably the best way to get a plan printed. Can't not have a Ballerina in the hangar it's my favourite model by far.

Thanks for the update Andy, quite looking forward to a nice new membership card 😆 bit sad I know but I am easily pleased these days 😂👍

Has anyone had their BMFA membership card yet ? Presuming of course that you made the payment 😉, not complaining but just wondering if delivery has started yet .

Hi all, just got back from hols so decided to sort my BMFA membership etc using go membership site. All went well until I tried to select by card payment, I could not get the payment screen to appear logged out several times but no joy. I was using my android galaxy tablet and Google Chrome. Fired up the trusty laptop signed in to go membership and had no problem with the card payment, membership sorted, CAA sorted and posh membership card on order 👍confirmation emails received as well 😁.

Not complaining just posting for information , suspect the site may have a few quirks with android applications. I found it a very easy operation and am sure any little issues will soon be sorted, great job BMFA 👍

Sharp tap on the bolt head with hammer & punch can sometimes helps free things up. Don't get over exited with the hammer though , worth a try before getting the drill out .

we really need a 'like' button on here. Some excellent responses to being called sheeple, 'order followers' - sounds a bit 1945 trials to me but I'm not a moderator - for accepting that our objections were not sufficient to stop legislation but were enough to moderate (that word again!) it's application.

In the '70s I objected to being forced to wear a crash helmet. I was happy to wear one on my own initiative but being a rebellious teenager I wasn't happy accepting orders. It was the principle of the thing! Luckily I believe that I have now matured and accept that mine isn't always the only valid opinion, now I abide by the laws of the land in the hope that it will allow me to quietly carry on without uncalled for legal issues. If the law calls for me to kill or torture my Asian neighbours I may reconsider, but we haven't exactly reached that point yet.

If that makes me a sheeple, if it means I say 'I'm only following orders', if it means I'm surrendering (God alone knows exactly what I'm supposed to be surrendering, whatever) then I could care less because I can go and fly my planes just as I always have.

With the rise of the insults I think I really am out of here this time. It just isn't needed.

Well said bob 👍

I don't care what people call me, I've got a thick skin and I'm.not easily offended. I just find it amazing that someone would give up their hobby over a principle or £9 or a quiz. It's not something I can even comprehend doing in any way shape or form.

I'm with you Chris 👍 on my hols at the moment but when we get back will sort the bmfa membership and the £9 extra, as a pensioner I am not giving up my hobby for this in my view minor inconvenience. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion and I respect that but I will continue with the hobby I have loved for many years now.

I do like to have a membership card that I can just stick in my wallet that is easy to get at , not really bothered about discounts. Tried downloading and printing from the membership portal but have enough in my wallet without doing an origami job on a piece of A4 paper. Just another one of my little foibles 😂

19/11/2019 20:25:38

Like the look of the membership card going to get me one of those 👍

Spot on Peter different times, I think we had a much more tolerant society then. Too many Mr and Mrs angry today 😩

This is my method of creating template to cut out the wing ribs use pins and a piece of balsa to hold while cutting .works well , think I pinched the idea from Peter Miller 😀👍

Hi Chris, nearly missed this thread as PSSA is not realy my thing . Great to see you back doing some balsa bashing 👍although I don't fly on the slope I am sure that I will pick up some great building tips and have some interesting discussions on your build. I hope that Gaston has been behaving himself and is ready to assist in the build, we are off on hols this weekend but will be able to follow but posting my be a little slow. Bookmark selected so that I do not miss anything , looking forward to the build 👍👍👍

I have tried to follow all of the threads and comments on this subject but I have to admit that I am getting more confused as time goes by, all of the posers are I am sure are giving their best interpretation of what's happening and giving a heads up on any possible future pitfalls. The BMFA have clearly been working hard to get the best possible results and have done a grand job, I am confident that they will continue to do the best for us all.

To maintain my sanity I think that I will wait for my BMFA email updates on how to proceed and get on the SLEC web site to order some more balsa and adjourn to the workshop for a winter build project. Best get some more gas for the heater it's getting a little chilly out there.
