Thread: CAA registration consulation
02/05/2019 07:40:55

We can complain all we want but registration will happen. The cost well correct me if I am wrong but doesn't the CAA already have an infrastructure for commercial UAV pilots which surly is already 80%+ of what is proposed? I work for a €130m worldwide company and our IT department complete with offsite Halon gas protected backup server budget is only €1m pa. and we complete upgrades within that budget, so some IT company is fleecing the CAA. at £2.8m pa unless we are also covering the commercial side as wellsad

Thread: NEW POLL - Does your club have a safety officer, or is the emphasis on individual members to each be their own safety officer?
21/03/2019 15:18:09

Both - So I can't vote as we have a safety officer as dictated in our constitution who communicates by a quite word if he sees or someone mentions an unsafe practice. But then we also have in our constitution that safety is every members responsibility. Any differences in opinion are decided by majority present as they will be effected. Works for us.

Thread: Does your club prohibit the use of after-market receivers?
20/03/2019 19:43:06

As chairman of our club we have no such rule and to be honest I personally can't see the logic is valid without bona fide evidence. Now correct me but I haven't seen, read or heard anything that proves 3rd party receivers are less reliable and while the BMFA are happy in their use so will our club providing the usual safety checks are made.

For those cubs who have imposed a ban I would be interested to hear how the decision was taken. If at an AGM - fair enough that is democracy but apathy from the members may have also played a part. If just a quorum committee imposed the rule without calling an extra ordinary general meeting then the AGM could be lively wink

Thread: DX9 problems
27/02/2019 22:29:50

I have one of the last DMS2 / DSMX DX9's and have driven 0.8 of a mile away and still in line of sight slightly elevated from a hill. Then with a phone to my mate next to the aircraft I still had full control. Couldn't see the actual plane at that distance - if I needed to control it that far away I would have bigger problems than worrying about range. So no concern about range for me.

Port Broughton to Balaklave is about 75km and with a bright summer morning in S Aus he would have had good ground vision to spot his marks - and yes I bet it brightened up an otherwise mundane flight. thumbs up

Hiking boots, cheap Ski trousers, cheap unlined Ski jacket (snow skirt keeps draughts out) with fleece and lumber jack cotton shirt, Faux lined Russian tank driver hat with flaps and fingerless gloves. If really cold/windy I break out the transmitter muff & ski goggles.

Thread: Christmas bush
21/12/2018 13:39:04

Hi Kooka, Tipsy P,

Once the bougainvillea have finished flowering, the Nuytsia flowers start appearing, temperature rises and the sky clears Christmas is coming Arrrrrrr

However here in the UK its wet, grey and I would say miserable but as as an optimist that's what makes the UK so green - can't have everything.

But then a sharp clear frosty morning has its own beauty and when it snows I am in heaven.

Merry Christmas lads.

Back in WA (Western Australia) this is our Christmas tree complete with tinsel.

Western Australian Christmas Tree (nuytsia floribunda)

The bright golden flowers appear during the festive season and hence it's name. A simple strip of tinsel is all that is needed to create a perfect tree for Christmas. Known to the local Noongar people as morjar, they would use it's bark to make shields and the gum from these wounds is sweet and and can be eaten raw.

It is a tree, but it is unique in that it is parasitic. It’s roots search out other roots, circle round them and penetrate, sucking out nutrients. They have been known to cut unprotected underground cables.
