I downloaded 5.5 and saved it for future use, just in case mine went down.

Let me know if you want it sent to you; it's 1.41Gb zipped.

I must be lucky ! Just put a coat on over my shirt ! Got a pair of £1 gloves Mrs cut tops off thumb and finger .Put them on if it's cold wind while flying ! I wear same pair of goretex boots all year to keep feet dry ! I drive my Mrs up the wall cos I'm always saying it's not cold !😁😁 2 of us this morning early . Minus 2 lots of sun no wind .Lovely 😉😉 Colin

You certainly are Colin yes

As a youth on a flight deck in the Arctic it was often below -30 and the wind chill during launch/retrieve made it a lot worse but it didn't bother me then.
Nowadays Raynaud's and age dictate otherwisecrying

22/11/2018 15:28:52

I bought two pairs and they are very good but, I have Raynaud's and my fingers from the middle knuckle still go white within a few minutes, just not as quickly as when I don't wear them frown

I would like to try heated gloves that send the heat directly to the fingers, if they exist?

15 years old. Ye Gods.

My wife and I spent a week or so touring the Somme area in 2006 and visited many of the military cemeteries and memorials including Thiepval and Beaumont-Hamel. Canadian youngsters are sent to Beaumont-Hamel every year to act as guides and learn about their ancestors. We thought that that was a great thing to do and should be encouraged by all nations involved.

The underground tunnel museum in Albert was interesting too, but the lasting impression was the sheer numbers of casualties in that war and how remarkably pristine all the cemeteries are maintained. The youngest age we spotted on a gravestone was 14 years old!

Thread: ALDI scroll saw now 9.99 !!!! in Coleshill

That's right, I've just returned from the new ALDI store in Coleshill and they are now selling them at £9.99.

I asked an assistant and he confirmed the price; there were eight left.

Where abouts is the Aldi in Coleshill, might be handy for the odd spot of shopping on the way home.

Station Road, on the right a few hundred yards after BMTR tyres.

Aldi opened their new store in Coleshill today and have these at £29.99 as an opening offer.


PS Sorry Geoff crying

And their soldering centres at £9.99 instead of £19.99

I've just got back from shopping and picked up one of these for £28 (reduced from £69.99).

I wasn't looking for one, but at that price I couldn't resist!

Suggest you phone your local Aldi first as the one I bought was the last at their Castle Bromwich store.

Happy New Year smiley


Further to the above, after several months I haven't even opened the box!

So, if someone wants to collect it from near Coleshill (B46) and reimburse me £28, pm me.

I eventually bought a DJI 450 and flew it a few times but the novelty has worn off so it's in the BMFA classified ads if any forumite fancies trying a quad:-

I suffer from selective memory and selective hearing, or so my wife says!

The symptoms started shortly after we married forty eight years ago laugh

Thread: Liquid weld

I was tempted after seeing the article, but £21 a bottle? Liquid Weld or Liquid Gold?

John - this stuff is reported to stick just about anything, not just plastics!

Buy it at the shows it's much cheaper.

I bought the 3 pack (£34) for either £10 or £15 can't remember, but certainly no more.

15/02/2018 12:36:51

I bought some at Weston Park, good stuff.

Can you still change the Esc programming ok ?

Don't see why not, though I haven't had to because I programmed the esc before wiring in the UBEC.
