Thread: Multiplex Acromaster Where to get One?
06/10/2016 17:30:36

Hi Everyone, some of our club members and I are looking to buy/replace there beloved Acromaster's But I have scoured the net here and in Germany and cannot find Stock.

Have they been discontinued? or are they just very popular??

If anyone knows of a LMS that has stock I would be very interested to know, many thanks.

Such a shame they don't seem to cater for your average club stuff anymore, where are all the Demons and Magic Fun Flys, all out of stock or long since discontinued. Great shame.

Thread: Wings 'n' Wheels
27/06/2016 15:20:33

I haven't been to WW for two years due to Holiday clashes, but I was really looking forward to it, especially as it was billed as the 30th Anniversary.

I did go last week to Weston Park in the Dark for the first time, and you cant help but compare and contrast the two.

Wings and Wheels was no different to the last time I went, they didn't push the boat out for the 30th as you might expect.

They could have had a quad area with large screens and enough room to watch from the sidelines .They could have had a heli only flight line and where were the "wheels"? There was also room if they planned it right to have car racing track and the show could have been so much better, maybe some fireworks, and the Dawn patrol, where was the pizazz?

I know the weather wasn't great and the flying was enjoyable in tough conditions,but when people leave the show already thinking well I wont bother next year then something is clearly wrong.

Thread: Weston Park Model Show...an AMAZING show !
19/06/2016 17:52:27

Totally agree it was my first time here and the wife wants to go back next year!!

Enjoyed Saturday nights display, only wish we had wandered down to the Heli flight line later it sounded amazing too.

Thoroughly enjoyed the Dawn Patrol on Sunday and emptied my wallet.

Will definitely go again

Thread: USA import
01/04/2016 15:11:42

ive been tempted to Order from Balsa USA for some time, its not the costs that really bother me, as I'm sure I would save money importing what I need. Its the size of the parcel and possible damage on Transit.

Anybody done it recently?

Thread: SC Exhaust Nipple
30/03/2016 17:52:36

thanks for the help, ive ordered off the ebay link, a "local" LMS I must admit ive never been in.

cheers everybody

Hello,

I need to obtain the Exhaust Nipple for a SC15a or indeed a SC91 as they are indeed the same size.

Does anyone know who stocks spares for these engines?

perkins website lists entire exhaust for 91 at £25 but I didn't want to do that so I pinched the nipple from an unrun 15 and it fits

But I will need a replacement.

Irvine OS and Jen nipples too big.

Thread: What Would You Do?
13/03/2016 11:27:03

i work for royal mail as a postie, the only thing I would suggest is to clearly write on the mail Unknown at this address since (date) or Gone Away/deceased/refused. Delete as appropriate. And stick them in the nearest post box.

The postman on your delivery then gets them back next and day, we then attach official stickers on them,marking them up as above, sign em date em and with blue crayon circle the return address.

Or if no return address is given they go to Belfast to be destroyed if they cannot find return address when they open them officially first.

They will then slowly stop coming and you will have piece of mind.
