60ish members, don't need A to fly solo, just membership card signed by an instructor when passed out

3 examiners, all juniors have at least an A, kids love it, comes easier to them

most of club has an A or B. some are not bothered, that's fine

clubs in favour of scheme, but its individuals choice

no problem Andy Hsmiley

its a club issue Andy

club belongs to its members

I like old Fred though hes good company, done a lot for the club is one of its founding members

Fred has a bit of trouble getting back up when he kneels down, so I usually start up for him and carry his model out

I then stay by his side make sure he's ok, discreetly of course, don't want to hurt his feelings. when he's done I retrieve his model for him and then sit and have a natter.

Fred knows i'm keeping my eye on him, but he humours me.

funny enough this is just what he did for me when I was learning to fly

Thread: A Quarter Scale Hurricane Build
19/02/2014 04:43:07

that's some story Ken

Paul must be some fighter himself, and a very determined character

as you say the engine looks a work of art, as is the tailwheel.

from what I've seen of the build so far, looks like a work of art all round

I wish Paul well and shall enjoy following his build

its a well behaved cat my friend smiley

there are better qualified people than myself to answer some of your question WF

so ill leave it to them, you've cracked on though I see and sounds like your enjoying it

maybe you could fit another spar to the bottom rib, directly under top one, what you think ?

you can then put webbing between ribs, adds lot of strength for little weight penalty,

also you can then add a dihedral brace wink

dimensions of it look ok to me looks like a flier, has it got a name yet?

if you display poor safety procedures

your examiner will TELL you this is his reason for failing you

not a thought process

was your actions, displayed by you
