|Thread: Is traditional building a disappearing art?|
That's so true Peter, I pity people all the time lol
|Thread: Christmas Caption Competition!|
|Thread: Passenger lands a plane...|
|That took a lot of bottle, interesting end result as well. |
When I was P1 flying with my other half we use to practice approaches on an abandoned strip... Just in case!!
|Thread: IDENTIFICATION please|
|Thread: Sign of the times - funnies|
|Wifey sent me out for a bag of spuds this morning saying I could take a plane and have a fly when I passed the club field, guess what I'd forgotten when I got home? '!!!|
|Thread: BMFA NEWS|
When I've read it through I use the magazine as an advert for the hobby and our club, I just write 'Google Torbay Flying Club' on the front and leave it in a local waiting room, any bloke worth his salt will dive for it over all the female beauty mags!
|Thread: Winters Here Who's Been Flying ?|
Wow, that's lovely, I think it's forecast to hit us this afternoon in Devon, I think I would be tempted to throw something into the air though
|Thread: Veron Big Impala build instructions|

|Thread: Foamy Indoor Spitfire from E-flight Yak|
|Thread: Turning off AS3X from Eflite|
Does anybody know if there is a way to turn off the AS3X flight assistance on the Eflite receiver/esc/servo combo?
The reason I ask is because I've fitted the board from my defunct Eflite Yak into my Microace's SE5a and it simply won't fly properly.
The board is sitting horizontally in the SE5 and sat vertically in the Yak, the result is the AS3X adjusts the rudder when the plane is moved in the pitch and the elevator when the plane is moved in the yaw, the result is a plane that is virtually uncontrollable, hence my original question!
|Thread: Banggood Tiger Moth and Micro Aces SE5a|
Here's a couple of pictures of my indoor planes ready for the new season which starts next week.
The Micro Ace's SE5a has been test flown out of doors and is ready for the still air of the gym but the Banggood Tiger Moth is unflown. I've added a few scale details to the Moth, the windscreens, dash boards and pilots are printed paper as are the roundels, the spooked wheels are also covered in printed paper with the 'DH' logo on the hubs.
I think it improves the appearance quite a bit, the black on the fuselage is permanent marker and the yellow on the wings is food dye, the finished model with battery is 41g (1.5oz) so it should fly reasonably well.
Both kits went together beautifully, but I think overall I still prefer balsa!
|Thread: DX6i Rudder to Elevator Swap|
I know this transmitter is getting a bit old now so it may not be possible to do a channel swap. I can't see a way to assign channels in the menus, and can see no reference in the handbook.
So, is there a way anyone knows of?
|Thread: Wayfarer Biplane with wing tip Mobius|
I've put a Mobius on a 450mm stick forward of the leading edge and an SJ4000 rotatable in the cockpit.
|Thread: Newbie/returner from Devon|
Hi Graham, welcome to the forum, I've just sent you a private message (pm) with some info.
As Pier's mentioned the Super 60 here's a picture of mine:
|Thread: Identifying Vintage Diesel|
Is there a good resource anywhere to help me identify a vintage diesel engine, I can't upload a picture at the moment?
|Thread: Low Flying Aircraft Signage?|
The BMFA mention the wording of notices to put up where public access is possible but our field is private with a single track lane (often used) running down one side. I was wondering in the council would be the place to go?
So your signs are made by yourselves? They're not council?
|Thread: Repotage of Westland Lysander|
Lots of Google images here:
|Thread: Low Flying Aircraft Signage?|
Whilst reviewing a recent airborne video taken over our strip at the weekend I was slightly alarmed to see three horse riders coming along the lane, I had no idea they were there.
They were probably local riders and knew to expect low flying aircraft but what of drivers who didn't know we flew in the area?
A large aircraft (or an any size) on final approach appearing over the hedge could be enough to cause an accident!
Does any club have the warning triangle sign (in the UK) with an aircraft silhouette on it?
Is it something that we should be thinking about do you think?
