|Thread: How to Fly on a Windy Day|
Had the urge to fly today, it's warm, dry but a tad windy ... two out of three is good enough. Nearly lost it though when a gust took my head gear off.

|Thread: HobbyKing Navy Cub Breaking?|
I've broken the plastic undercarriage (port side),on my HK Navy Cub and HK are waiting for spares to arrive so is anyone breaking one up for spares?
It's easier just to replace than repair!
|Thread: KK Pixie with my landing tips|
I do see your comments and they're always complimentary, thanks for subscribing as well.
This great hobby is all about enjoying yourself isn't it? party on ...
Hi Martin, here's a picture of the motor, it's very small as you can see, it swings a 9x4.7 APC slow fly prop.
Hi Foxfan, it's twice size at about 42in span, the hardware was removed from an Ultrafly Outrage biplane and the auw is just a shade under 1lb, the receiver is a standard Graupner model, these are pretty small and light and it flies for about 25 minutes on a 1300 3s lipo.
Here's a link to the build of a couple of years ago on this site:
Hi JD8, it's not my usual club field just passing through really but either way scytheing it would be interesting, I'd pay to watch someone else do it!
Thought I would share how I like to land at the end of the video, obviously there are lots of local-site variables but as a rule of thumb ...

|Thread: Sopwith Camel Electric Conversion|
Hi Geoff, sorry slow response, the motor is the Tornado Thumper 4260/06, with a 4s 5000mah battery, not sure about the rest but 13in prop sounds about right.
Enjoying my newly acquired Hangar 9 Sopwith Camel converted to Electric.
|Thread: Microaces DH.2 Evening Flying|
Glad you enjoyed it Josip, I'm currently building the Microace's Sopwith Triplane to add to my collection. They're working on a Nieuport 17 which is one of my favourite planes as well so I'll be pre-ordering that one as soon as it becomes available.
It was nearly too dark but I filmed it anyway!
|Thread: 2.5oz spinner on motor?|
Does anybody know if a 2.5oz brass spinner would adversely wear the bearings on a 42mm dia. Thumper motor? Or would I be better off putting it in the cowl?
|Thread: Getting New Members|
Our Club gained some new members today in a most enjoyable way, here's my report from today's display at Newton Abbot, S. Devon.
We had 21 planes on display and we all had really interesting conversations with the general public. Personally I spoke with a pilot of a Liberator and Dakota, an observer of a Liberator both in Egypt, a chap who's Dad flew observer in a Swordfish over the North Atlantic and a GWR retired worker who remember Spitfires at Little Haldon. He also spoke about De Havilland's landing at Little Haldon to be picked up by the GWR bus and ferried to a GWR hotel in Torquay!
Another chap told me of his 250ft O-gauge railway in his back garden and another chap whose hobby was building and repairing trailers of every sort.
All in all a really varied day full of interesting people.
Oh, and Steve Pope photographer turned up from the Mid Devon Advertiser (just over the road) and took quite a few pictures which will appear in the next edition so make sure to pick one up. In fact quite a few people said they saw our display advertised in the MDA and came down especially.
As a final bonus I think Cliff will confirm we had three new members sign up to the club and two may-be's. We also distributed loads of old magazines to interested youngsters and their parents ... great PR for the hobby.
The picture shows our display early in the day, the sun probably helped a lot as well.
If you're looking to find new members I have to recommend this as a pretty good method.
|Thread: A typical fun flying session|
These sorts of mornings is what memories are made of, not much happens but just a load of members enjoying each other's company.
|Thread: Se5a on a Summer's Day|

|Thread: Full-Size Lancaster at Woodsprings today|
