|Thread: Beautiful Ford Flivver scale 1:5|
Nice to see this unusual subject, it's fairly rarely modelled.
My father did a Flivver for an OS .20 / .28 fs at 1/6th scale..... it was a bit twitchy to fly even after careful trimming, very short moment arms and big controls surfaces. Once the control input was mastered it was really quite docile.
I doubt that there's another tail dragger with such awesome ground handling, once it was down it was stuck until you told it otherwise.
Well, iirc a 'removed vid' is not actually removed, just blocked and only the up-loader can watch it on their channel.
I couldnt get permission to use my friends 100mbit connection so didn't manage to rip the first two posted vids..... but I did manage to get some of their others......
There's others that have been removed too, which is a shame
So, who's the best bod to contact within the BMFA?
Contacting the BMFA and making them aware is the thing to do, not get a thread deleted, wish the whole deal would go away nor inserting thumbs in orifices varied.
They have a facebook group as well.......
So, I'm gonna contact them, feed em some bovine droppings and see what happens.....
|Thread: rc plane crash - 68% pitts challenger robbie skipton at raf cosford|
£1349 is the kit price, purchaser has to put 50% deposit down to initiate cutting.
I was only reading a thread about this model on FlyingGiants / on the builders website a few days ago, What a shame
|Thread: aerotow hook position beneath a glider|
I've never done aero-tow but have done flat field, where one sets the hook 28 degrees forward of CG +/- 2 degrees...... if you think of the whole bungee, winch launch and running tow-ee 'flightpath' this makes sense, but to tow from that far back (I think) would put the glider too far above the tow plane for safety
From what I've seen / read here: **LINK** an Aero-tow release does not Have to be located the pointiest point.... at a guess some of the models have the aero-tow hitch at 80 degrees in front of CG.
|Thread: What's flying over your house|
Just had a Bae Hawk make two passes over Porthtowan (Cornwall) going pretty damn quickly.... I guess it's doing bombing runs on RAF Portreath.
By the sound of it, he's loitering and maybe about to make another pass.
|Thread: Le Tour de France...2016|
What a horrid situation for the trio to be in.
Too many vino heads, too many motorbikes.
Froome riding away from Quintana..... no surprise as he's Nothing without his security blankie named Alberto.
|Thread: tbobborap1 at weston park international rc airshow - 2016|
Germans Love Cornwall!
During the holiday season, Porthtowan (where I live) is a prime destination...... well, the whole of Kernow generally.
Not that this is a problem as they are super polite, have a great soh and respect the village to the point where they will tell dog-walkers who dont pick up their dogs effluent Exactly what they think.

Hope the conditions are floaty for your ride
One reported case of this in cyclo-cross - dirty bunch of what-nots they are!
|Thread: See What You Missed|
Some amazing flying from the helicopters, the night gyrations need a health warning though!
I copied the link to watch full screen and noticed that they did a toffee bomb - I thought doing that had been 'banned'?
Anyway, it looks like those that attended had a great experience.
|Thread: Fournier RF4D - Gentle cruising|
The 're-looking' into is your fault Steve
It would be a nice small / cheap project as you say.
Out of interest, what span is your model?
Being called annoying or silly is hardly an insult - my 70yo mother calls me a twep at least twice a week and you wont see me blubbing!
I gave up cycling with clubs shortly after the 'Wiggo' movement took hold as 'Wiggistas' were not only a danger to themselves, they were a danger to myself AND car drivers....... on one ride I got asked why I raced ahead when we were about to turn at a junction to wit I replied:
"You have no proficiency, so I'm safer making the turn on my own."
I urge you with all sincerity to find out who the local clubs are that litter your garden and go complain to the council (you pay the fee so you have a genuine Right) rather than playing devils advocate / back sliding to cover one posterior on an AEROMODELLING forum.
P.S. I'm a Senior Moderator / Server Admin of a Sim-Racing forum (100Mbitracing.com) on which your 'attitude / devils advocate' post would be jumped upon from a huge height under 'Trolling' rules - which I happen to know a fair bit about because we (UK) have the staunchest rules / LAW regarding such. Having said this, I would never use my knowledge of such to bend Any forums rules.
Should the Modelflying.co.uk moderation team feel the need for me to make pennance, then I will with all sincerity via a public posting.
|Thread: Fournier RF4D - Gentle cruising|
Steve, there is also a small trad kit by Westwings **LINK** @ 60" span, which I looked / re-looking into into for 'local to my locale' flying.... I have cliffs on my doorstep so it would make a good / unusual sloper with a 'get me home' up front.
I had the same thoughts Percy, so I purchased Mick's 1/3 plans.....
Tis one of those scale subjects that looks 'right' at any size And retains the grace of the full size as seen in Steve C's vid
|Thread: scale model aircraft (film)|
What a great film, thank you for posting Phil.
Cars have no more legal right to be on the road than cyclist, horses of pedestrians..... the twerp that stopped me from cycling had the same attitude as you.
You would know that IF you wernt of twerp attitude
