One of my pet hates, along with all those listed previously is the incorrect use of "non" when "none" should be used.

Steve, Very little stock in the UK. I get most of my needs from here:

Steve, JR hasn't folded. It's under new ownership (RC Depot). It's still made in the same Malaysian and Japanese factories as before. Unfortunately it's not very well represented in the UK.

Thread: How do you clean your glow engined models after flying?

I use "Rhino Goo" from Demon Tweeks. I'm sure similar products are available elsewhere but they sometimes do 2 x 5 l for the price of 1. I use it diluted 50% with water and it works extremely well, also good in an ultrasonic cleaner for engine parts.

If the Tx is Spektrum, as I think it might be, it could be the old chestnut of a faulty RF board. Send it (or give them a call )to LOGIC RC who are the UK agent for Horizon products.

Thread: Import and VAT
11/09/2020 19:09:55

I have recently bought two model related items from the USA, both from different vendors and I received both within 2 days of order with the UK 20% VAT being paid at point of purchase. Delivery to my door was by UPS for one order and DHL for the other. Parcel force were not involved and no VAT collection fee was charged? I think it is US Postal Service that use Parcel Force for the delivery and VAT payment in the UK. I just specify for USPS not to be used.

Use a large thin plastic bag such as you get with dry cleaning, not a stiff food storage type.

If you don't have access to another Tx to compare why not check the output of the one you do have?

These are excellent and good for regular checks.

Capt. K

Did you use the Glass version or the one for plastic?

I've got the same problem on a couple of Panasonic cameras which have a thin plasticised rubber coating. I've found wiping/rubbing with IPA helps but it's impossible to stop it happening. The V&A museum has got similar problems with some plastic exhibits decomposing into a dry granular state or oily/sticky condition depending on what plastic it is and I don't think they have found a solution. I had some drawing lettering stencils and adjustable squares that crumbled or developed an oily surface as well. Neither the cameras or the drawing equipment had been in contact with any hazardous chemicals and in fact the drawing equipment had been in a case and untouched for the last 40  years!

A couple of drops of silicon furniture polish added to a gallon of fuel stops foaming.
