|Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread|
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.
|Thread: One handed operation|
Here is a link to an interesting TX from Hobbyking
|Thread: Online magazine viewer problems|
I have just discovered that I cannot view last years and back to 2008 mags anymore. I have a Windows 10 laptop and have not changed any settings -I would not know how to.
|Thread: Electric Junior 60|
I have a few of them. Could sell one. Will be at cosford on sunday. PM me and I could send you some pics. Have no idea how to use classifieds/m I am a BMFA member.
|Thread: Looking for a flat pack high wing leccy trainer that will fit in my car boot|
FMS Kingfisher is designed for easy assembly and disassembly.
|Thread: Switching Brand|
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.
|Thread: CAA registration consulation|
On the Kitchen Table has just done an interview with CAA about registration.
Cannot add Youtube link for some reason!
|Thread: Spektrum Radio repairs ?|
Al's Hobbies are the official Spektrum repairer as far as I know.
|Thread: Dancing Wings Hobby "Fiesler Storch Kit"|
Sorry should have said part 1 announced last week has not appeared yet.
Captain Rob at Youtube RC Model Geeks is doing a build/review video of the DW Storch kit.
|Thread: Do You fly Drones? An opportunity to explain why|
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.
|Thread: Hobby King|
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|
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.
|Thread: The thread for your subscriber questions and queries **please do not start a new thread**|
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.
As a new digital subscriber can I download my RCME mag? If so how?
Thanks in anticipation
|Thread: Bj's Modellflyg videos|
Good to see the HK Tundra working well. I'm close to doing my maiden in the week or so - weather permitting.
|Thread: Mike Oldfield|
Crackling/varying sound could be a dirty pot. Try whipping the volume and stereo pan controls backwards and forwards a few dozen times.
