Thread: Pitts Model 14

look like they pivot to me martin, agree with your thinking.

if car and storage allow it i'd go for 1 piece wing

rigging and derigging at field is one of the downsides to bipes

looks great I wish you well with it , like colour scheme also

Thread: SAFE OR not so Safe? Using electronic stability aids
20/12/2013 08:24:34

I must have fell asleep.surprise forums, clubs, model shops, etc .have always promoted flying safe and in an appropriate area. clubs encourage new members, most allow free visits and offer free tuition. thousands of people have taught 11, 12 year olds myself included. the hobby is full of people who are only to happy to help others. I strongly suggest your preaching to the wrong audience

this thread has been up and down? ....... in our club of 112 members we have one who is interested/going to try FPV .......we are in controlled airspace and as such have to go with the ANO order would be interesting for to find out(if possible) how many forum members are interested and intend having a go with the FPV's......we had a visit from a non member who had purchased some equipment...and when we pointed out to him the ANO/BMFA STUFF he said he wasn't really interested in rules and reg's and I wonder how many people-young and old will be getting some form of FPV for Christmas and wont have the slightest idea about any ANO's/BMFA'S or CAA's.......when it go's pear shaped it will be the rule abiding flyer's who will be tarnished with the brush.....

ken opinion dept...not intended to upset any readers........

PS......i'll be amazed if someone can see an 18"dia FPV machine 1000ft from the ground.......


all clubs have had people turn up with bad attitudes, its a personality thing not specific to fpv

size of model limits the height we all fly at, not a given number. (other than controlled airspace + ANO's)

somebody could go buy a jet, heli, spitfire etc and tarnish rest of us.

also there are people at clubs up and down the country showing fpv can be safe

the words can be safe , applies to us all

Thread: Flying Tardis? perhaps not....

after reading that pete I have to agree with you, everything you need is there

also confident that lads at our field have it covered. they have read all this.

should have read it fully myself, things have gone so well, I never felt the need

should have took my own advice. (its all there read it) blush

wish you luck with that onecheeky

will get a 100 answers and insurer could challenge them all. seems to be a question for CAA and others to answer

our club does it as follows, observer is qualified to fly solo (A test standard) he has enough common sense to take job seriously.

Thread: Attila build.Novice

i'd agree with above , hitec also do 225's one with metal gear and one with nylon

which are mini servo's, and would be ideal

Just going back to the fuel consumption and petrol conversion, I have a guzzling Saito 180, and just converted to spark ignition - still using glow fuel.

Fuel consumption has halved, and easy to start by hand every time, low reliable tick over and instant pickup.

Just used a Just Engines spark conversion kit.

There is no need to move to petrol, and change the compression and all the plumbing (not import and on a new build I know)


sounds good not got knowledge of it myself
