My models don't need a throttle servo, so if I want to use an old or suspect one I put it on the rudder cheeky

To quote some of our lads "Wots a rudder" ?

To me It's going round in circles, you don't get to choose my thoughts. Did the mods err ? Maybe they did in allowing a thread about who wasn't going to register, or pay their money, that could portray modellers in a bad light and be unhelpful. I couldn't possibly comment as I leave the mods to it. wink

Playing with words Nigel, we are discussing the decisions taken.

I did Percy till the club opened a site, some good groups out there.

Going around in circles Doc, I'm fine with the mods.

22/05/2019 13:48:45

There's some real dross on facebook Percy and plenty unpleasant people, block them or don't join the groups.

22/05/2019 13:16:51

Whilst I miss BEBs presence myself, I see no difference in the modding standard, BEB joined discussions more. The fact that we're discussing modding goes against the CoC, yet here we are and threads not closed ?

Maybe we should look to ourselves for why the threads got closed eh.

Facebooks been great for our club, brought us new members and causes no grief.

I expect there'll be more threads on it when there's stuff to say, it's a forum.

Ah right, been stung a time or two myself, been stomped on as well, rub a bit of cream on it, you'll be right.

Compared to many forums it is a hive of activity, wonder why that is ?

face 1 Pick a topic I'm game, can we have some optimism, maybe a bit of humour ?

I just have........ until it gets reported, then it'll get slammed shut.

Yes you did, my apologies, never reported a thread myself, I leave that to the mods to deal with. Seen umpteen threads on here that have been feisty and strong opinions posted, many not been closed, BMFA ones being one example. Mods do a good job, I've no complaints.

Thread: What a sick world we live in

News says they have arrested 4 teenagers, not proven guilty, but hope they caught the ones. My son joined the army after leaving school, no qualifications, next week he's going for the interview ? to apply for Captains rank. Kids ain't so bad, it's just the wrong uns who make the news.

Fetch your new stuff we haven't seen yet Simon. yes

19/05/2019 20:43:40

Hoping to see some of you June 1st -2nd, give a shout if you're camping please. All welcome whatever you fly, only requirement, proof of insurance.

Thread: Poll for who intends to register.
18/05/2019 17:01:03

BMFA will still get my money, so will my club.

18/05/2019 16:29:22

Patronise me all you like, keeps A.S free from flak, you assuming I don't care about our hobby, only the self righteous like yourselves do ? Is that patronising ?

I'll make it simple for you, for years some have wanted sanctions on "Drone" flyers, whether they be law abiding or not, they've wanted us to distance ourselves from "them" whether they be law abiding or not.

Excluded them from clubs, whether they be law abiding or not.

Chickens have come home to roost, and you're wallowing in self pity.

Great tactics, publicly undermine your own associations whilst they're fighting your corner.

IMHO the person on this topic who has undermined the negotiations has the initials AS. In his position, I would be saying that the BMFA are in discussions with their insurers to make sure that their members are covered for civil claims even if they are not registered.


Get yourself in there then, you're good at cut n paste, A.S does right not spending all his days replying to these threads, still attacking own does work for some.

Did I mention get a grip folks ?

18/05/2019 15:10:43

I promise not to tell anyone, oops. face 1
