I ain't researched Stearmans post history nor his spending history, you obviously have, I stand by the points I made.

You don't need to "research" anybody's history, it's the principle, okay for one company but not another in the same circumstance.

I have no idea what's got your feathers ruffled S. T. frankly I don't care, you have a nice day.

No snowflake here, do your worst I'm o.k with it, good manners cost nowt, not even a £1.

Glad you're sorted Stearman, pay n go phone myself, so I agree with your point, if people can take my order via e mail, they can update any issues via e mail. They spot the order quick enough, why not a query.

Hobbyking take orders by email but that didn't stop him bombarding them with endless phone calls.....where's the difference?

There was a really interesting article on landing that was in a LMA mag last year...could have been 2017. I will attempt to find it

Well, I’ve looked over the back issues on line and it’s not published there. I’ve drawn a blank but I’m sure someone might know, Ian Redshaw might.

Maybe it's farther away than you looked. face 1

Well simply put, my eyesight is not as good as it once was, hearing as well, bones n joints ache a bit also. My long time experience of modellers is you've always been further out than you think, but won't admit to it unless a tree says so.

Thread: club drone ban
09/01/2019 19:55:29

You are the one going on Sonny, same knee jerk reactions you're worried about from others, you want to apply to others, capital letters don't make it more true, and asterixs ain't allowed, abide by the CoC. I get your point but disagree.

09/01/2019 19:29:18

Acts of terrorism and other illegal activities are not permitted at our club. wink

Government chose to accept us as reasonable law abiding people when they formed the new rules, we chose to follow their lead, and accept any flyer behaving within the laws. Happy landings all.

09/01/2019 17:05:38

Ban X Y or Z, never works in my head, I can see with some fields, due to size or locations it might be the way to go, otherwise it's people that can't work together, not what's being flown, a selfish flyer with a aeroplane causes just as much grief at the field, as one with an heli/mr/etc.

Despite popular myths, most of us have our faults/quirks, give over pigeon holing folks.

just wondering if it would be a good idea to ban drones from our club to avoid unwanted interest from the authorities in light of the recent announcements

I've yet to see any negative article in the media, about drones being flown on club sites, and within the laws. I've seen quite a bit lately where we are recognised as responsible groups, who are law abiding. I would sooner try and be part of a solution myself, than turn my back and hope drones go away.

Thread: Not sure my linkages are up to the job
07/01/2019 16:03:11

If you feel threads wearing, change them Adrian, you wouldn't forgive yourself if it let go. Check for any burr on the threaded link as well.

07/01/2019 15:46:23

I have both on various models Adrian, I've found myself tightening up closed loop on my Cap, that has metal clevises, I put it down to the wire stretching slightly, couldn't find any other obvious reason for it. The nylon links are so good a fit and tough to thread on, I've had no problems with em.

Thread: Do You fly Drones? An opportunity to explain why

Strange though process some have, Geoffs always seemed pretty level headed and fair minded to me, I couldn't give a monkeys what paper he reads.

05/01/2019 23:24:57

Took me a while Geoff, I filled it in though.

Pretty straightforwards, leaves what you say and how you feel about it up to you, will it influence owt ? Who knows, it won't unless you take part though.

A) In no way can The Grauniad be compared to The Daily Fail. One is, yes, a left-leaning paper but it does have a modicum of considered thought behind what it prints. The other is a rabidly right-wing rag that hacked into a dead girls mobile phone answer service.

B) A lot of people on here have moaned that model flying, model planes, the hobby and drones in general are being misrepresented in the national press, BUT when a national newspaper offers the chance to present your side of things your first thought is to rubbish the idea and the motives behind it.
