|Thread: Delivery Charges|
A bit puzzled over delivery charges-the cost quoted by two different model shops to deliver the same Tx next day delivery by DPD vas as follows
Shop 1} £14.20 distance to deliver 86 miles.
Shop 2: £4.50 distance to deliver 207 miles.
The difference in cost not being hidden in the price of the Tx as shop 2 Tx was £20 cheaper.
|Thread: Correct tool for securing TX switches?|
One of my switches kept coming loose as I did not want to over tighten it and risk cracking the tx casing or damaging the switch I used a small amount of thread lock before retightening with long nose pliers. Since tightening the switch has not come loose.
|Thread: The WORST plane you ever had?|
Plan built electric powered Evans Volksplane, thought I had built in dodgy aerodynamics until I saw another flier's Volksplane stagger round the field.
|Thread: Christmas Caption Competition!|
Radio 5 Live presenters line up for outside broadcast.
Radiohead album cover for Christmas
|Thread: Red outline boxes|
Every aircraft (jet age)I have worked on the walkway lines/boxes have been black outlines, perhaps US markings were different before the NATO standard for military aircraft was adopted.
Not about flying - advice given to me when driving for the first time in a Middle Eastern country - "First Rule of driving is there are no rules - Second Rule is its only a game!*
Well said Tom - I just ignore these posts
|Thread: Why We board Planes From The left Hand Side.|
BEB good theory and one I will not dispute, but the designers of the Lancaster Bomber and Canberra B1's & 2's had different ideas - as the aircrew entered these aircraft on the right.
|Thread: BMFA Online Membership portal open for 2018 membership renewals|
Andy - Just joined for another year on line. All went smoothly and took a few minutes.
One minor comment, I missed the survey link on the member' details page but saw it on the second look when I put my new telephone number in.
Perhaps the link could be more obvious as the survey is about Country members who are also members of BMFA Affiliated Clubs.
|Thread: All very nice, but who cares?|
Good luck to them.
I certainly won't be following the media frenzy as I don't buy newspapers, watch televised news or breakfast tv - too much non news about so called celebrities on all three. .
|Thread: Good News from the BMFA AGM|
The BMFA news part of the website also details the annual membership fee - Seniors £34 for 2018.
|Thread: September Special Issue|
Second that comment and don't forget Me 109; FW190.
|Thread: My Hermes|
Our Hermes delivery person is always the same woman or man in a saloon car. No white van see them regularly in the area and they appear to know their patch/people and where to leave parcels if they cannot deliver at the door.
Only problem we have had was when DPD sent two different vans to pick up the same parcel, you can imagine the second drivers reaction.
|Thread: Did you start with ARTF and move to building from kits or vice versa?|
Other - bought an RTF to learn to fly and a kit to learn to build at the same time. Only bought an ARTF recently.
|Thread: Another Shop Going?|
Anyone know if Model and Hobby World is going to re-open? A quick google reveals a web page that is completely devoid of items and a new owner.
|Thread: BMFA NEWS|
Me too just pick the bits out of interest and ignore the rest.
I like to new format of the Members Handbook, appears to be much easier to read. It is a much needed replacement for the old one, although I cannot comment on all the contents as I have only flicked through it.
|Thread: Horizon Hobbies|
Not sure fitting a genuine Spektrum Li-on battery which is recommended by the manufacturer for the Tx would suggest the problem is obvious.
Straight out of the box for the dx6 would be Duracells (or similar).
My Dx6i worked fine on dry batteries and I never had a failure the batteries lasted for ages. When I bought my DX6 I decided to install the Li-on battery, as previously posted when not in use it completely every 10 days or so.
I am not sure if the DX6 is at fault, or as previously stated the battery has a charge protection circuit built into it, and it is this circuit causing the problem. To determine if its a Tx or battery fault I intend to remove the li-on battery and fully charge it and leave it disconnected to see if it loses its charge as rapidly. At the same time I will fit dry cells in the Tx and see if they discharge.
My Dx6 also discharges when switched Off takes about 10 days before the Li-on battery goes flat. No idea what a FET is.
