Thread: Returning after a 20 year absence!

No issues with 35 mhz myself, however I agree with C8, Vanguard 4 ch is very basic, you have your Son interested, update for me, by comparison radio is much cheaper these days. To which Radio ? Well the Worlds your Oyster, plenty out there.

Yep so do I, never a radio failure, 40 years. Always a late adopter of new tech, I let other more tech savvy and adventurous explore the new stuff first. After much watching and recommends from the likes of Chris Bott, BEB, Bob Cotsford, Matty B etc etc (Soz if I missed your name off) and our own clubs tech gurus, I took the plunge, happy to report usage confirms said gurus opinions. You Imply "Cheap Chinese" you may fiddle around with yer cap to suit your post, but that's how it comes over.

KISS, and spend your hard earned wisely folk. Stay a Lert.

Agree about battery uncoupled, the only truly safe way.

Why are people so defensive about Friskey radios? Am I missing something ?


Not being defensive Barry, those are your words, weary of the cheap Chinese jibe though, It implies I take money more seriously than safety. I have never had a radio failure, explain that ?

Might be that said Martin still uses FRSKY RXs via a module, I could be wrong but It would be Ironic eh.

As it happens Barry I've been around a while, sat many an hour watching top lads fly, even some of the modern stars perform, and I use a JR9X Tx as well, FRSKY module in with FRSKY Rxs in. Never a failure just like my JR ones of old.

Stand with PJ myself, KISS, flight done, battery uncoupled.

Even gladder now that I still use JR DSX9. None of that would be possible.


I would be very disappointed if a modeller of your calibre and reputation was using a Friskey radio or similar, in fact it would shake me to the core !!



Satire ?

Never owned a Riot, some members have them though, they seem to like em.

+1 for free lunches.

Thread: The Lockdown Restrictions Have Been Relaxed. Who's Been Flying?

About a dozen there today, only one fly for me, spent most of the day, talking a new member through various issues with a model/engine he bought. All pretty simple issues and easily sorted, good to see the smile on his face.

My mate is a pilot for Virgin Atlantic but, because of the lockdown, he's off work so l asked him if he fancied doing a bit of decorating for me while he's at a loose end and he jumped at the chance.
l must say, he made a lovely job of the landing.

I believe the word is Lol. Lol face 1
