"Do not despise the snake for having no horns, for one day it may become the dragon".. (Old chinese proverb)...

The cash amount of club membership wasn't really the issue, it was more something i thought i could do without it. and i wasn't sure i would like the hobby so didn't want to lay the cash out if not etc, but now i realize i can't... plus the comments here and the health and safety issues concerned. So the conclusion has been reached that it will have to be a club. I want to learn everything from the basics up.

It can be done, but I won't be doing it. I am taking their advice and doing it strictly by the book with a club from now on. Cheers!

To be honest i'v not found anything that i can't do before..

Yes, I'v already began looking around Sussex clubs online. I visited one some time ago when i first bought the model but their fees were higher than normal sites so i was put off as i don't know whether i'll like the hobby yet as i havn't flown anything. Another i'v looked at seems to be under water half of the yr. So am still looking. I will find one, join and take the plane. They can check it all out and not sure whether they will want me to fly their club plane on the buddy fox or my own.. But don't worry... I had to try. I did so and i couldn't do it.

Iv got the BMFA membership already..

Don't worry, plane is grounded until club. I did read and understand but i had to try...

Am currently thinking of painting my flight tool box green with a white cross on it...

Recently, I taxied it on a remote field on the South downs near the coast, the ground was bumpy although it looked ok before the plane moved. I thought it would be easy to take off, just accelerate, lift the elevator up, and up up and away.. but it didn't quite happen that way.. I broke 2 props in 2 attempts and the 3rd attempt got the plane off the ground ( for less than 20 seconds) more like 6 seconds before nosediving into the grass. There went prop no.3 and the front end of the plane, plus an engine mounting. Since then I'v rebuilt it and attempted a smoother field take off, and am presently on frontal rebuild no.2. So I'm faced with 2 choices. 1. keep trying at the risk of more repairs or 2. club, Instructor etc. It's highly likely i will be going for option 2.

Am currently looking around at club membership, the plane will be flown around June this year at a club, in the hands of a qualified instructor with myself on the buddy system. Thanks for the heads up!...

Trouble is these company's have monopoly's, so a lot of the time they don't actually know what they are doing.. nor do they really care.. they own too much... too much going on....
