I like the location and the flying aspect is fabulous.I am providing a small level of sponsorship as I want to see this become a success....I like the bold way in which this can help to take our sport/hobby forward and the facilities on offer are very good.

Well done to Manny and the BMFA team

Not another thread of negativity and nay-sayers.

I think it's great idea that this is being done and shows that the BMFA has some vision and has had the determination to get Buckminster this far.

It was not so long ago that many on this forum were saying "it will never happen, BMFA are to clueless/useless/toothless etc"

Is it also the job of a moderator to have a certain arrogance and boast about how even with their pension they are better off than most people who are in full-time work?

I didn't vote for it, I still hold to the view we were not properly consulted on it, I have no intention what so ever of ever going there.

Why should I pay for this white elephant?

Especially as we have been "promised" that wouldn't happen. No, if you want to pay that's fine - a voluntary contribution would I am sure be very welcome. But don't commit my wallet to this please.


Bah Humbug!

At the beach yesterday

Not much slope needed to keep the Arthobby Odyssey 2,7 in the air

Cheers Soren

That is amazing Soren - and great control to keep it all going. What was the wind speed?

Time to return to the thread topic, I reckon.....

Too right Andy,

I thought it was a bit of friendly banter that we engage in all the time, then BEB leaps out and starts making threats to the poster of an innocuous comment. Who moderates the moderators?


Thread: why do people feel compelled to build such large models?
25/09/2016 13:21:11

As the "inspiration" for this thread, here's my view.

I was thinking my are people compelled to big the monster models, half scale - that sort of thing.

The guy who has 100" Lancasters - well I do not consider those to be large.

Personally, when a model is weighing over 100 Kgs and costing tens of thousands of pounds, then that is a step too far. I'd rather learn to fly and buy my own aircraft!

But hey - each to their own - but it certainly isn't for me.

On a wider note - why do people feel compelled to build such large models?

Ha! Cliff, you should have "styled it out" as the kids say!

Nope - need to drop about 40 miles SE of Solihul - It's in Northants. Crossed post - Spot on!

That looks like a drone shot

It is!

Three bracketed images combined for a High Dynamic Range image, and a bit of processing in Lightroom.

I love the lighting on this one

Each and everyone to their own - but a noisy oily engine in a glider makes no sense to me. frown

Just saying - without prejudice.

Thread: Recommendations for good first model for FPV / Air to air video
12/08/2016 14:43:02

Just a thought - posting a video does not mean the forum or the poster condones or supports it.

If that was the case, BBC, Al Jareeza and most other on-line news sites will be guilty of condoning all sorts of illegal stuff.

Just saying.

I can just imagine it. OK so some people want to watch it ALL.

I bet they are sitting there with THREE (3) TV sets tuned to BBC 1, 2 and 4. Oh and another set tuned to TV so they can see any unlisted football matches that are suddenly popped into the programs.

Peter - get with the times. TV and red button will be on one sport. Tablet and Smartphone will keep track of two others.
