Three Australian cricketers were sitting in the change room.

one said "if our batsmen improve and score runs we can beat south Africa."

another said "maybe the bowlers need to lift their game and we could win".

and the third said "what about sandpaper."

Coincidently he passed away on the anniversary of Einstein's birth.

And another coincidence he was born on the anniversary of the death of Galileo Galilei. spooky!

Surely 'the coincidence' is that Einstein was born on the anniversary of the death of Galileo? Given Stephen passed on the Einstein anniversary, the Galileo 'coincidence' is inevitable! cheeky

But more seriously, Hawking certainly lived life to the full, and left a lasting legacy.

You got me on that one, Wright Stuff.yes

Right on the nail Dave Bran.yes

Demographics targeted= people with time and not a great deal of money to get started.

Advertising aeromodelling during any tv shows that have aeroplanes as well as over the radio, maybe during childrens science or other popular tv shows as well. may just help inspire the next generation.

Thread: Excerpt from Aero modeller 1971

Posted by Peter Miller on 16/02/2018 08:29:42:

Pylonius was in Model Aircraft...Not Aeromodeller

Beg to differ on that one Peter.

I have the Magazine in front of me now it is the April 1971 Aero Modeller free plans intact of Little Willie MK II (Rubber power) , Cheechack for Jetex, and Puck (rubber power).

Excerpt is from 1971 Topical Twists by Pylonius

"Apparently, constructing a full size machine is much the same as building a model, except that the wife walks out on you sooner, often just before she becomes a widow."

When one sees examples of what is often passed off as 'art' (think piles of bricks, dead sheep and dirty unmade beds) for many millions of pounds, then fifty grand for one of PM's aeroplanes is a snip.

Agree with you 100%

Thread: scale model competitions
23/01/2018 10:16:48

My thoughts were that there would be a larger pool of possible participants if the engine size was reduced from those 100 or 250cc machines, beautiful as they are it gives a poor guy like me no chance of competing at top level world or national championships.

I definately don't have the skills right now to put a masterpiece together but it could inspire others to try if the models were in a comfortable, convenient and affordable engine size. I know i would have a go if it were so.

formula 1 although not the same has had some similarities in that biggest budget helps a long way to the winners podium. the same names pop up time and again as they have the budgets to be there. I am not trying to take away from the absolutely great skill and talent to produce those flying machines that take out the top spots in aeromodelling it is just out of reach to the average bank balance. mine is less than average.

maybe an undercard of scale models in the 60, 90, 120 and 150 size engines non arf?

me rambling again just shoot me and put me out of my miserytea

22/01/2018 21:33:18

great to hear that CSB

I am usually speaking nonsense anyway

22/01/2018 21:23:43

I am either rambling or don't know what i am talking about most of the time but i do wonder if.

With the Scale competition models on national and world championships getting larger and very expensive it has become a very elite part of our hobby and out of reach for many. enjoyable to watch though.

I wonder if a 20- 30cc scale category would give more people an opportunity to participate at the top level for a national or world class trophy.

Im thinking of converting a model to electric. I'm looking for advice on motor, batteries, speed controllers etc. ideally something equivalent to .40 glow power.

Also I'm flying on 35mhz, are there any interference issues.

All advice gratefully received

My advice--- See a doctor for a second opinion.cheeky
