Personally I thought it a little quieter of late! However I am glad that the stats show forum usage is increasing as I quite like it here!

Perhaps its me, it sometimes seems that whenever I post on a topic it drops dead, sometimes I think I should call myself threadkiller. Maybe I'll just read and not post, that should help laugh.


I've noticed your a threadkiller as well shaunie wink

but so am I crying

Thank you John.

The only consideration here is when something goes belly up. I have never seen common sense used or even discussed in court.


yes gazza just err on side off caution, you'll be fine. modellers get too worked up at times

its a hobby, element of risk yes. impossible, no

air navigation order (a legal framework which governs all flying activity in the U.K.)

covers fpv also wink

also flying within controlled airspace.

apply common sense you'll be ok, got mine off my mam and dad.

if you feel rules have been incorrectly laid down for fpv.

contact B.M.F.A. /C.A.A.

fpv lads at our field fly to these rules we are ok smiley

16/12/2013 20:57:46

35ish years ago I built one of these, I think it was a D.B. kit. if not maybe flair.

it was a slope soarer, which I fitted a O.S.. 28 fsr to. tissue and doped it.

simple, rules say observer must maintain direct unaided sight of sua

16/12/2013 14:52:01

up to 1000ft size of model dictates height limit.

if observer can't see it he's no longer your observer, is he ?

if you wish to use rth, fine.

why impose it though, rest of flyers don't have to use it.

if you believe it guarantees a safe return every time, your mistaken.

could fly into a full size while not under your control.

agree with the above

keep the weight down if your building one, fit servo's last to help balance without adding lead if possible

fly it onto floor, use flaps. bit of breeze also helps. its not for a novice but its not unflyable

how about a zlin. that engine would fly it at scale speed

a mate had a skyways plan pack with st 2500 in, flew a treat

he only ever used straight fuel. never had problems with it.

I've just measured some of my balsa stock. Some are 100mm, others 4in. All 36in length! I blame it all on Napoleon, who decreed what a meter would be - and got it wrong by 3.37in. dont know

he commanded imperial guard wink

ran my car on gallons as a teenager

now use litres, its a lot more expensive crying

I have a big ruler with imperial, and metric on yes

you may not want to agree but your next step is a purpose built trainer. loads on market, 25- 40 size.

£40- £70. i.c or electric. something that will cope with a bit of wind. unless you have a good stock of balsa, covering etc, you cant build one as cheap. learn to fly, stock up on balsa etc at next years shows. if budgets tight this is your best option. building your own is magic, flying them is even better. smiley
