|Thread: What the hell has happened?|
Agreed, however all these new draconian regulations and restriction do nothing to help newcomers into the hobby either.The lack of free flying sites is another issue.
'Everyone' certainly has not done it. I for one will never be paying the unjust registration tax.
|Thread: So what's happened to the August issue?|
Finally arrived! All is well with the world now.....
OK, I'll take a few slow deep breaths and try to relax......

Mail seems OK where I live. We still get our mail every day (mostly all Junk of course). Not sure how long I should wait for it to turn up in the mail before I contact somebody*
*not sure which 'somebody' I would need to contact either.
I have still not received my copy of the August issue. Am I the only one who has not got it yet?
Still waiting for mine.....
|Thread: (Last) Flight of the Phoenix|
Never had any bad tendencies with mine. I would guess your elevator servo gave up.
|Thread: Cheap or good Quality Lipos ???|
I'd take two Turnigy's over the Admiral pros every day of the week. In fact, I have done exactly that with all my 5000mah 6s lipos,
|Thread: Fly aways|
Very difficult to ascertain if they have flown away! One can only deduce lack of pre-flight checks is the biggest cause.

|Thread: VOLANTEX asw 28|
I would agree with this, just didn't want to be to blunt!
PS, the model also benefits from a 4 flap wing setup, with full span ailerons (using flaps and ailerons at the same time) to achieve higher roll rates, differential aileron to help prevent adverse yaw, and it's also good to setup crow, camber and reflex to help during the different phases of flight (if you are planning on trying to thermal).
I think you have only got 6 channels, so you will not be able to achieve all that, but you could either use just one channel for flaps and 2 channels for the ailerons to enable you to program differential aileron (if you transmitter allows it), otherwise you can mechanically build in differential by offsetting your aileron servos to allow more movement up than down.
Also be aware that the model has a 'heavy' nose, so you will need to get your receiver and battery as far back as possible to achieve the correct CG.
If the above is just gobbledygook, then I really would recommend getting somebody to help! (or trying to get hold of a simple cheap trainer plane first).....

I own the Volantex ASW28. It's a great plane, but it does carry quite a bit of speed in flight and is not a beginner model in my opinion. I'm guessing you do not have any flying experience? I would strongly recommend you find somebody with some experience that can help you set up your transmitter, get all your control throws set up correctly and going the right way, get your cg correct, set the motor brake on your esc (its not set by default), and help you in your first few flights. Where are you located?
|Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread|
I was aware of the dart, but had not seen the drift before. I may well pick one of these up for sorties closer to home....
No £9 back for me - I refused to sign up to this unfair and unjust scheme in the first place......
|Thread: How Windy is Too Windy|
50mph is the maximum wind speed I have flown in. The flying was fine, but standing up was an issue.
Steady wind is no problem at all (once the plane leaves the ground the plane will have no idea it is in wind). Some of the most fun flying can be had during strong wind.
Gusty/turbulent weather is a different matter, and I don't enjoy that much.

Yeah, like this thread:
|Thread: Is the hobby dying/dead|
Mail order is starting to change too. Just try ordering any type of stanley knife, snap off knife or knife blade from screwfix online - you can no longer do this, even if you have a trade account like myself! The nanny state is slowly closing in....
