Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread
20/11/2019 19:35:05

As a relative newcomer and enjoying the hobby I think that on a matter of principle I would not pack it in. The law is the law. We vote them in so have to put up with the way things go. No way would I allow our crappy MPs (whatever party) to influence my hobby activities.

You can always use a Lemon or Orange receiver as they are cheap and work well. Do get one from a reliable source.

FMS Kingfisher is designed for easy assembly and disassembly.

The number of channels is just a marketing tool in my opinion. Unless you are going to fly jets or other complex aircraft 8 channels is surely enough. Having said that the Jumper 16 or Taranis 9XD would seem good. Open Tx needs a particular thought process to master it - I'm on the edge having had my Taranis X9D basics sorted out for me! I have a Spektrum that was easy to set up. You pays your money as they say.

On the Kitchen Table has just done an interview with CAA about registration.

Cannot add Youtube link for some reason!

Al's Hobbies are the official Spektrum repairer as far as I know.

Captain Rob at Youtube RC Model Geeks is doing a build/review video of the DW Storch kit.

At least they have spelt Qwod Coprtz and Multyrotors correctly. As mentioned above perhaps one of the Red Tops should carry out this exercise. On a positive note this could educate Council and Education decision makers on the subject.

As a relative noobie I split my spending by buying kits and bits from UK dealers wherever possible with my LHS (RC World Ltd) top of the queue.

I take up unmissable HK good offers when they occur. I have found HK to be very good and although I have had a few quality problems with foamie kits they have always been resolved speedily. The initial chat line can feel like a waste of time but as soon as a supervisor can be involved all is sorted quickly.

This is a great hobby - I wish I had found it earlier - by at least 20 years!

Thread: Much Marcle LMA Show
03/09/2018 08:28:02

As a noobie to the hobby it was my first experience of an air show and I must say for me it was superb.

Well organised and good range of trade stands - did spend a bit of pocker money! - even the burgers were good.

The Lancaster flying was amazing and the Red arrows certainly showed the skills that can be attained. To see Dick Dastardly take off in about 3 feet was unbelievable. The silhouette of the Lysander was memorable.

Hey ho onwards and hopefully upwards till next year.

Thank you to all who made the day so good.

I have forgotten the procedure of how to access the latest RCME digital copy on my PC - all is ok on ipad.

Can someone advise please.

13/01/2018 13:42:41

As a new digital subscriber can I download my RCME mag? If so how?

Thanks in anticipation

Good to see the HK Tundra working well. I'm close to doing my maiden in the week or so - weather permitting.

Safe Flying.

Crackling/varying sound could be a dirty pot. Try whipping the volume and stereo pan controls backwards and forwards a few dozen times.
