|Thread: Flying through covid !|
Well said. People spread Coronavirus, so if you don't want it, keep away from other people wherever possible. If you HAVE to be close to others take precautions. Simple isn't it?
|Thread: Grammar, punctuation, spelling|
My particular pet hate, the incorrect replacement of have with of. For example, "Could have" or "could've" are correct, "could of" is not.
Grammar, punctuation and spelling are all important in conveying the meaning of the written word.
|Thread: Redundant at 62!|
I'm pleased to hear that there is a good chance of continued employment albeit a little further from home.
I hope it all works out well. Best Wishes for a brighter future.
|Thread: What's flying over your house|
B52s have been very active from RAF Fairford the last couple of weeks. This last week at least a pair has flown out every morning from Fairford roughly ENE at 10,000ft over Northamptonshire then over Lakenheath and onwards easterly climbing to 30,000ft plus. They disappear from radar roughly over NE Poland and reappear 4-6 hours later to return on the same route to Fairford.
Quite a sight even at 8-10,000ft (I'm near Northampton too) and unmistakeable sound.
|Thread: Redundant at 62!|
So sorry to hear that Cliff.
Seems to be the modern way of management - take no responsibility, sub-contract all you can. In the vernacular of these times, Outsource.
Hope you find something soon.
|Thread: Prostate Cancer|
Thanks Andy, just over 2 years since my Prostatectomy, all going well.
I feel I was lucky to have both an excellent GP service and a seemingly dedicated Prostate department at the Churchill Hospital, Oxford. it was just under 10 weeks from initial GP visit to completion of Surgery for me.
I think there is an element of postcode lottery in addition to the Covid effect on getting initial diagnoses. I understand that the PSA test should be available on request without GP referral. What happens when you get your results is however dependant on your GP's interpretation and actions.
Best Wishes to all fellow sufferers.
|Thread: 'Great News' !|
Not really enough info, can't find a motor matching the given size on HiModel website. Unusual, but could it be that it's propped for a 2S battery?
David, I think the link should be : 3541/1270 motor . That would do nicely.
|Thread: sas wild thing|
I've noticed that the links in the SAS Website are broken.

About £12 for a box of 50. Bought my last ones from here V Major blades
|Thread: Extension Leads Problem|
+1 for (tightly) twisted leads, just good practice for longer leads. Nevertheless I can't help but think that the leads are the most likely cause of the problems. As C8 says a progressive test of all components should identify the problem.
|Thread: LED wiring|
I'd agree with that. For normal daylight use once they're more than a few feet away you can't really see that they're on. The "Superbright" Landing lights are quite different, easily visible if you're in the beam even in full daylight.
If all the LEDs were identical then series with a current limiting resistor would work, otherwise the current flowing would be governed by the lowest rated LED, the higher current LEDs would just be a glimmer. The "correct" solution would be an SBEC (more efficient) with each LED having its own current limiting series resistor.
But, hey, if the OP is happy and the LEDs light up, object achieved?
These might have been easier:
|Thread: Crimping tool|
|Thread: Forum weekend prize draw - winners!|
|Thread: Spektrum Receiver Plugs and Sockets|
Spektrum/JR standard plugs should have a small chamfer on 2 "corners". Futaba plugs are the same size, but with no chamfers and a tongue. Many "look a like" plugs are not quite the correct profile, usually a little too large, hence the problem getting them to plug in.
There are also some "universal" (fits nothing) plugs around which have neither chamfers or tongue.
Better they're a tight fit than loose, but it is annoying that the alternate manufacturers can't get the dimensions right.
|Thread: Miss Sizzle|
July issue - Magazine due out next Friday in the shops, earlier for subscribers. Digital copy already out, if you're a subscriber.
|Thread: Chris Foss Xtra Wot|
4.55 litres of methanol and oil should weigh approximately 3.7kgs, a little more if high nitro content. 500cc will weigh just over 400 grams, again, depending on nitro content.
|Thread: 4Max batteries - any good?|
Chris, I'm all too well aware that almost all are manufactured in China, but you'll note that I said others from afar. Specification and quality control can however have quite an impact on the final product.
