Thread: Ben Buckle Falcon Build
02/06/2020 22:12:22
Posted by Mike Etheridge 1 on 02/06/2020 21:56:54:

Best of luck with your Falcon. Mine has been gathering dust in my loft and needs another airing perhaps with a 4 stroke motor rather than the Merco 49 . You can see through the nylon covering just about but really the plane could do with a refurbishment. When I got it from E-bay it was structurally unsound due to mouse damage at the rear of the fuselage, so I just did sufficient with key hole surgery , balsa cement and balsa wood so it could fly,which it did very well.

Lovely build Jason - well done.

I'm disappointed it's not going to be powered by a Laser 4-stroke

You've no idea how much I would love to stick a laser engine upfront, but the noise would likely cause the loss of my public flying site.

Cover that magnificent structure with " see-through " covering

Indeed! I want to be able to see the intricate structure when its done. The scheme will be transparent gold and white.

How is this amazing model progressing?

Slowly! It took me a while to recover from a spinal injury last year (which is why my wife purchased this kit for me), and this year I have not had a single day off work (not even bank holidays) due to the coronavirus pandemic. surprise

Progress so far: Tailplane & fin - awaiting sanding & shaping, one wing panel - awaiting sanding and shaping. Just started on second wing panel.

I have however decided on the all important colour scheme......

As a test, you can try pressing and holding the panic button whilst wiggling the elevator. If the elevator moves normally with panic button depressed, then the panic channel is indeed reversed.

01/06/2020 22:51:06

Try reversing the panic button - Sounds like you are stuck in panic mode.

Note that the receiver is programmed to add a small amount of up elevator as throttle increases beyond 50%, which is why you are seeing the up elevator movement as you advance the throttle.

Just checked it. I have pages 1-58 as Model Engineer, and 59- last as RCME? indecision

Me too. I hadn't previously checked beyond the first few pages of model engineer, but from page 61 onwards it is indeed RCME......

As my current build is too big for my workbench, it is on the dining room table. I am making good use of the chairs! wink

Thread: NEW POLL - Has home isolation prompted you to start trad' building?
31/03/2020 06:40:40

Nope. I was already part way through a build before the virus kicked in, but now, as a key worker, I am in work even longer hours so have no time to continue with the build. Easter holidays & bank holidays are cancelled too, so no building to be done then either.

Just as well I suppose, because I am still waiting for covering film to come back into stock at HobbyKing. Oracover is just too expensive. (Plus I have more than enough models anyway)

Thread: An Isolation Mass Build?
19/03/2020 14:43:49

It needs to be something we can build using empty toilet roll cardboard tubes, empty baked bean tins, empty pasta packets and empty paracetamol boxes. Seems there must be a lot of these building materials out there.....

At my local indoor bowls club we have a raffle each week - last night one of the prizes was a twin pack bog roll - and we've now shut down TFN

Edited By Dave Cunnington on 17/03/2020 10:09:56

I should have entered that raffle. We ran out the other day because we were unable to buy any as our local supermarkets had sold out. I had to go into mcdonalds for a mcdump.....

I'm not fretting about what happens to me.

If / when I get the virus, I'll either get over it or I won't. I have a couple of medical issues that reduce my chances, but que sera sera! My Mother has less chance than me and it's her I fret about. I also fret about my son who will get over the virus but would struggle on his own (I'll not go into why). I also fret for my nephew and his family, who are on zero hours contracts and will have no income at a time when they need it most. I probably fret for the very same people that you are talking about.

My point was that there are still apparently some people out there who haven't grasped the seriousness of the situation. They still describe this as flu and blame the politicians for their handling of the situation. The bottom line is that nobody is to blame (maybe a Chinese market trader?) and nobody knows how to handle it.

You keep referring back to my earlier comment about raising the drawbridge. You fail to notice that I said in the same post that it was too late to raise the drawbridge once the attacker is inside the castle. What I meant, in case you didn't understand the metaphor, was that we had the opportunity to keep the virus away from our island before it reached us. Once it was here, it was too late.

I'm with you Gary. Some others need to start taking it more seriously. I don't worry about myself, but I do worry about those around me who are at risk/vulnerable.

IGNOREance is not an option.

Thread: English language ?

These days I find 200% is a better target to aim at, 110% is a bit last century.

As I work an agile process, we are always sprinting.

I note few people ever seem to point out the impossibility of "always sprinting". Apparently, the more realistic "cruising at a sustainable pace" is not a sufficiently motivating expression.

Careful, you're in danger of thinking outside the box with that bleeding edge corporate synergy......

Moan, moan, moan.


The English language is a constantly evolving, dynamic tool of communication and expression. Have none of you read Chaucer? Or medieval English? Shakespeare? In form, composition, vocabulary and meaning there are many differences between what was penned and what is now accepted as the norm.


Also, gentlemen, given the focus of discussion in this thread, I suggest some proof-reading before you submit your own poor examples.

Sooo, lets go ahead and look at this. Ain't not nothin wrong with language evolving, but it's so like not evolving like. It seems to be devolving, like less expressive, with one word or phrase seemingly fitting all. It's like a whole bunch of words have gone missin like. You get me?

You should try being part of an american owned large company.

Managers aren't managers, they are people leaders...

We all have to socialise our ideas (!) amongst other oxymorons.

I could go on.

So long as you give it 110% you'll be good.

12/03/2020 21:11:23

"I didn't do nothing" is the one that gets me most. I usually answer it with "so you did something then", only to be confronted with blank stares.

That and the following phrases from over the pond:

"A whole bunch" - Seemingly a description for anything greater than 1. Other adjectives are available people!

"Lets go ahead and" - A completely unnecessary phrase. Lets go ahead and look at the next annoying phrase...

"Your all set".

So, that's it like. Fantastic.

I can't see any "conspicuity devices" small or light enough to fit inside my .049 powered single-channellers being available in 3 years time!

We are talking about something the size of a GPS telemetry unit.

Even something that small will not fit in my hotliner.....

Thread: Horizon Hobby not Responding
07/02/2020 16:30:36

I sent Horizon many emails, which they failed to respond to. I sent recorded delivery letters which they failed to respond to. When somebody finally responded after naming and shaming online, they said that they 'cannot deal with old issues'. When I pointed out that the issues were only old because they ignored my emails and letters when the issues were new they stopped replying.

As far as I'm concerned Horizon are rotten to the core. Their products are overpriced and not particularly reliable. I used to be an advocate of their products. My advice now is not to touch them with a barge pole.
