|Thread: 2015 Autumn Special|
As a long term subscriber, I am underwhelmed by both content and print quality.
Did not have the feel of a Special somehow.😣
|Thread: BMFA on the BBC, Martin Dilly.|
Cricket not a sport? What a ridiculous thing to say! Effort of bowling, batting and modern fielding demand huge levels of physical and mental effort.
|Thread: BMFA National Flying Centre|
Yes - but I was thinking of England only, as the 100km radius from the proposed NFC is in err... England. I also assumed 30,000 of the 36,000 BMFA members are in err... England.
Steve - of course the 12 Million within a radius is a useful indicator! And of course you're right that only a tiny fraction will be interested in model flying.
But there's will be more chance of people being interested from a higher population density. If we say there are 30,000 model flyers in England which has a population of say 55 Million, then the 12 Million population in that radius MAY contain 6,500 model flyers.
|Thread: National flying site|
I support the intent and vision of a National Centre.
The concrete plans must, of course, be well scrutinised, feasible and acceptable.
|Thread: BMFA National Flying Centre|
But that would mean putting the National Centre close to poor people.
According to this tool there is a population on 12 Million within a 62 mile radius of the site (approx)
Nottingham is about 57 miles away, Birmingham is 70 miles and Manchester about 124.
|Thread: Small can be beautiful|
Does the flight controller include a GPS sensor?
|Thread: Germanwings crash|
Sexism is alive and well on the Forum!
|Thread: Maths and English|
I remember raising the standard of grammar used on this forum and received a barrage of criticism that at times bordered on personal insults. 😎
|Thread: RCM&E March 2015|
David is asking for some specifics - here's my thoughts:
The Not So Good
The better bits:
Just a few thoughts.

I too am finding it a bit bland and uninspiring. Can't quite put my finger on why.
A bit dismayed to see that what was a post in the Forum becomes a letter of the month and wins a prize.
|Thread: Daily Mail on Drones|
That will be the two of us...
Article Here from the forum's favourite news paper
|Thread: Phantom Drone over Etihad Stadium|
Story here on BBC Website
|Thread: Euro 2016 match abandoned due to flag carrying drone|
|Match between Serbia and Albania abandoned when a quadcopter carrying a flag was flown over the pitch.|
Players started brawling when one side grabbed the flag and tried bring the drone down.
|Thread: Google Chromecast|
That's what I thought - but earlier post claimed the it was powered by the TV. I checked - and HDMI does not provide power.
Colin: Re Power, didn't realise that a HDMI socket also provides power. Thanks for the tip!
Hi folks, I picked one up at the weekend.
It does need a separate power supply and one is provided to plug into a 240v socket and has around 2m of lead terminating in a micro-usb plug that plugs into the device.
Do a bit of reading up first!
I bought it to see if I can get Sky Go onto a bedroom TV. You can't. Sky has not (and will not) update it's app to allow casting.
You can cast your entire desktop (or tablet top!) to the TV, but that is certain Android versions and Windows 7.
However, it's great for YouTube, BBC iPlayer and movie streaming from your phone or tablet. With the laptop, I can also cast the whole desktop and get the full Sky Go package.
Well worth £18!
