Thread: How do all

How do lad. face 1

Wasn't having a pop Martyn, we are individuals, stuff happens, rather not pay an increase but a fair case was made for it (in my opinion).

I think we do consider risk analysis, consequences would be much worse if we hadn't. It's a hobby with risk involved, it's a hobby with a variety of fields involved, are we going to call for fields that reach a certain criteria before allowing flying there ? all must park, set up to an agreed standard, impossible.

Fees went up £4, BMFA gave the reasoning, I'm O.K with it. Allow folk to comment without the usual us n them stuff.

Good man, than bolt looked annoying. wink

Thread: No space left for new models?
15/11/2018 14:33:58

Most I ever had is 22, can't be keeping them in a damp shed where some rat might break in and steal them, looked at it one day and thought, well this is daft, time to get shut of some.

Like a variety myself, wouldn't want all large models nor all small models, how they fly not how many for me.

Depends on your pocket C8, I had 4 kids they cost a fortune. crook

Never considering the cost when buying or flying, if I couldn't afford to lose what I paid, I wouldn't have bought in the first place.

The spinner turned up today from HK. Very quick turnaround. Quite on monster!


Holding it against the cowl i am not sure I am going to need to spray it blue. The orange blends in quite well. I will see.


Oooh you'll have somebodies eye out with that. face 1

Thread: Which Set Should I buy
13/11/2018 17:03:45

Club mate has one Eric, I reckon you'll be happy with that set. yes

Thread: Foamies for beginners?
13/11/2018 12:35:12

Our club had one or more trainers for years, not the case now, the lads got worn out fetching and carrying them, others didn't come forward to do a turn.

Much easier now to buddy up with new peoples models, we've a good range of sets and leads, also a few lads have their own foamies/trainers set up to buddy.

Training is done by quite a few people, if student trusts someone to teach em, club doesn't interfere unless there's problems, stick time is important when you're learning. Don't teach much now myself, mojo's not what it was, I help a couple of lads I fly with, leave the rest to the younger enthusiastic lads.

Never made me nervous taking newbies models up, give it a good check over first and usually jobs a good un, Gary mostly does the newbies models now or test flying, he does a good job. very few ever fail to get solo.

How many have I trained ? haven't a clue. I mentor them constantly, I'm gobby. face 1

My first project was a small free flight done as radio control (Matador) didn't have a clue what I was doing and made a mess of it, used wrong wood on wing spars (too soft) and it folded up, lad teaching me took pity on me, and gave me a Ripmax trainer, happy days, much easier to start and learn now, artfs and internet. yes

Probably Igor rang up complaining about something. wink

Our treasurer dragged our club out the dark ages and set up a facebook group, been a big success, plenty new members via it, m/rs, petrols, helis, some traditional stuff and loads of new fliers with foamies.

Been stomped on plenty of times on here Dave, regardless of that, there are plenty friendly people on here, even those who stomped on me ain't so bad.

Which part of building a new traditional balsa aeroplane do you enjoy the most?
Q: Which part of building a new traditional balsa aeroplane do you enjoy the most?

 Research & choosing the model
 Building the fuselage
 Installing the engine and radio systems
 Building the flying surfaces
 All of it!
 None of it. I'd rather someone else did it!
