Caution - Fairy Power Spray turned the alloy on either an ASP or SC 2* very dark grey when I tried it several years ago. Now what I can't recall is how long I left it on dont know It did clean the engine but chemically changed the colour permanently.

Very nice piece of PR by Jim, Andy and all involved. I thought the inclusion of the long history and how to get involved was a nice touch. thumbs up

Thread: CAA registration take-up?
14/12/2019 13:54:51

Is that registrations or tests?

Only I took the CAA test and both BMFA versions just to see what was required without completing, as being our club chairman I may need to offer advice to fellow members without an achievement pass.

Thread: Orange RX R620X full range rx.

Another big thumbs up for the 7 channel Redcon - several all proving ultra rock solid. Also have Lemon 6,7 & 10, all diversity and all excellent. However you might want to check but I don't think the stabilized 7 has a failsafe option ?

Thread: Need new Dehumidifier

We have a Comet (gives you some idea of how old) DH10, 10l per day that's just come out of retirement after re-plastering several rooms - works brilliantly still. Downside 250w per hour running. As Cuban mentioned sort source if possible.

Not quite the same (newer model) but on sale at Machine Mart. Clarke DH10 sale

Thread: F86 speed brake
25/10/2019 13:25:05

Missed the edit window crying

Na sorry the above suggestion would't work.

What about the pivot base being angled in away from the skin with the brake mounted at slight twisted angle so it sat flush with the fuz when shut,  but would pivot out and down when extended?

No engineer, however if say he pivot point in the fus was vertical and the both arms are the same length, but the top arm had a slight dogleg into the fus. Then when the airbrake was opened/rotated the top arm would travel further causing a slight droop? only a thought.idea
