RCM&E is the best value rc magazine Available in Australia. A pullout plan, plenty of advice and techniques along with great photos of some very good models that are far from the ARF scene. purchase one or two OZ publishing's and you will understand what I mean.

I know we are a very small market down here and the costs to make anything including dinner send accountants to the bottle. but we down here in Oz just do not produce a magazine of the same Quality. Long live RCM&E

Disaster has struck while covering my horizontal stab. covered bottom and top rear 3/4 with white hobby king then turned down the iron for leading edge 1/4 with orange Easycoat, well the edges bled and i grabbed metho to wipe the bleed it spread further and has stained the white like a curry on a white shirt. boo hoo have to peel the white off and start again unless there is another solution from fellow RCM&E-RS

that is my first experience with Easycoat, have used the other name brand coverings with never a problem.

John Stones, No gripes here either, and definately not questioning integrity of any examiner at all. Just another way of assuring our sport maintains a safeguard from idiots that don't care about the consequences.

I have witnessed experienced pilots performing worse than those that have been solo for mere months.

I have also seen non certified pilots that fly better than examiners too.

Cracking model Bob, I still covet that King Altair in your hangar.

Wanna buy it? I really, really need to have a clearout.

I would jump on that like a woman on a handbag and extra pair of shoes deal. Now Australia post would be getting pricey. I would love to take the Altair model home if i was nearby. Hope you get a good sale nearby, it cost me $3.50 Oz to post weighted mail of 50 grams a distance of 35 kilometres today.

Genuine thanks for the offer, and i am genuine about the joy of owning her.

Yes BBC i understand it can be difficult and fall outs are unpleasant, nothing the BMFA can do about it though.


Well a better way is two examiners.

John You are proving the point.

But two examiners being in cahootsa is a very realistic issue for our hobby/sport.


It could be the case BBC, but that can only be addressed by clubs and it's members, nothing the BMFA can do about it.


Well how do we address this possibility? I don't want to argue with my clubmates, this type of disagreement will go on for months if not years. Do we have a five yearly examination of the examiners and one of the pilots they have passed?

this is a sport that is gaining a danger to others reputation because of idiots and i would rather we all pass well with a registration number as has been the norm. If we need an outsider as the second examiner then all is fine with me.

it flies! Black Horse Percival P56 Provost, Laser 100, FrSky radio and miscellaneous servos.


It needed a lot of right aileron trim despite having a few degrees of sidethrust built in, but not even a single click of elevator trimsmiley. The only fly in the ointment was a heavy landing - my fault for coming in too slow but I'm going to blame it on the wind strength. Both U/C legs bent the pins holding the oleos to the mounting plates in the wings. Could have been worse sad

Been reading up on my M/R A test and got to pondering things wink

What's the thinking/logic behind needing 2 examiners to take us for a B test ?

I get the logic of Examiners for differing types but why 2 Club examiners for a B and 1 for an A.


Edited By john stones 1 on 04/04/2017 12:39:26

My understanding in reading between the lines is to stop a seemingly "he got his easier than i did" etc.

The "mates help mates" scenario. No i am not slapping the examiners and never would, but imagine for a minute i had a close mate pushing me to give him wings and it would make our friendship a struggle if i said you are not up to standard. Then i would rather another examiner be part of the test too. Safety in numbers............

Thank you Andy.

Wait a minute! how did you go with the Cutlass? Yours was an aeromodeller in action that was forgotten. Aeromodellers try to fly the aeroplanes they build.

Thread: Is it Murphy's law
03/04/2017 05:34:40

Murphy's law? don't be ridiculous. I had a door slam on my fingers on a windy day as an old guy, a horse kicked me on one side of my Head needing plenty of hospital care as a late teen, One got to get home quick driver hit me while on my bicycle when 12 and i flew over the windscreen but was only bruised..( they tried to sue for damages to their pewjow---failed), i have 8 children from hundreds of bedroom encounters.

Murphy who is he?

why was i grinning while watching that? they should be arrested for having too much fun.

Thread: Wight Maiden

Thanks Kc. I ended up doing the full span after reading the article, and added a little extra strength to the wings, i put on a false leading edge of hard balsa strip before the medium leading edge and sheer webbing between ribs/ main spars. rather than single servo and bellcranks i will use 2 Hitec hs81. still a fair bit of shaving and sanding to do but i am happy with the progress.

I have gone through all of this thread and you would be hard pressed to pick a winner. Absolutely enjoyable.
