Thread: Fuel proofing - what to use?
03/01/2018 19:31:58

Two pack automotive lacquer, completely fuel proof, cheap about £20 for a litre of lacquer and half a litre of hardner, just hold your breath if you spray it then run out of the room.

Well I opened my new aurora 9 yesterday I have set up my Zĺin Z50 on it and am ready to go flying once the weather improves. Very impressed so far with aurora 9 system and it's ease of use. GaryG

Good choice, won't get head ache with it, and I bet you never have to ask how to use it.

The old saying " Nature abhors a vacuum ". ( showing my age there ).

My dear old dad was always quoting that saying.

still don't know what abhors means

Exactly you point out how much you have spent and have to spend then charge £50 an hour one to one, now imagine all you needed was a few hundred pounds of equipment and reprice your charges.

Thread: Fuel Choice?
27/10/2017 19:42:30

Optifuel all the and there from Yorkshire so it must be good

Thread: Paul Heckles - Excellent training session!
27/10/2017 19:25:32

Training is all well and good but I just don't see how they can justify the price £50 an hour, in my business I have 10s of thousands of pounds worth of equipment plus rent rates insurance phone electric the overheads list is huge, and all for only £40 an hour.

I like to give something back to the hobby that I have enjoyed for over 45 years,, as the only official trainer in our club not many weekends go by without teaching someone or helping with something, thankfully we don't have the silly rule that only allows instructors to help, most people that can help will.

Small club that encourages old young beginner and expert.

Thread: ACRO WOT XL or WOTS WOT XL ????

I never questioned your competence Stephen, I merely suggested another route to air your dislike of the picy, I sit down when I'm spotting.

You may not have questioned my competence but the last line certainly questions my motivation for the post.

or is it o.k as long as not fpv ?

Don't disagree, but you could have p.m'd, we all drop clangers now n again. Lots of flying takes place in public places, this forum has loads of talk of crashing/lost control/had nowt/is my radio iffy/i had a flyaway/did you set your failsafe etc etc etc ? Good publicity ? or is it o.k as long as not fpv ?

I fly fpv both fixed wing and multi rotor, I sit down and my spotter stands behind me, I also set my failsafe. As for crashing I do everything to avoid it but that would be an accident not a deliberate action.

Over 40 years of rc and only one iffy radio it did cause a crash admitted, but as I range check regularly i spotted further problems with the replaced tx before I had another.

Of cause they where, silly me.
