|Thread: Ajay Autogyro|
Haven't managed to maiden mine yet due to the weather. According to the AJ website the kit is discontinued? Seems odd after only six months or so.
|Thread: AJAY Autogyro Build|
Nearly done now. The instructions don't mention anything about removing the triangular piece of the trailing edge of the blades at the root. Is this necessary as I see others have done it?
Thanks to John at AJ. Got home tonight to find a PDF copy of the instructions in my in box.

Made a start on mine today. Good job I looked inside the box, a bit sneaky taping some items to the box sides
Quality is very good, those blades are so much better than I could do myself.
Two small gripes, I don't have a PC so instructions on a disk are no good, unless someone could send me a PDF?, and no Velcro which is supposed to be supplied. No worries, I have loads.
What motor have others used?
|Thread: HobbyKing Avro Lancaster V2|
Bomb Bay doors no longer servo operated on v2.
|Thread: Revolver Pusher type Autogyro trainer|
Nice one, Rich. Looking forward to it.
Any news? Have just cut my teeth on an Auto G and itching to move on to a trike.
|Thread: Another strange aircraft|
Good to know I've still got it!
Flight Radar and similar trackers won't pick up everything. Mostly only commercial airliners, and strangely gliders, will appear. The private community, especially bizjets and bizprops, seem to protect their anonimity.
Although the picture isn't great, if it was UK or european registered, the reg would be visible under the wing. Suspect it was US registered but UK /European based. US registered aircraft almost without exception never carry the reg underneath.

Piper Malibu ?
|Thread: Problem with Auto G2|
Frank. That's about the only thing I haven't tried. I'm taking it to the patch today and will try it.
Yes, I know. Everything is plugged in where it should be.
Hoping someone else has had the same problem. I can't get the auto start system to work. I'm running an FrSky 6ch rx on a Futaba T7, my usual set up. When everything is connected up as it should be the auto start won't work. The auto start esc is plugged into Ch5. If I remove the plug from the rx and connect the lead to a servo tester the auto start works. If I connect a spare servo to Ch5 and flick the nominated switch on the tx it works. I have upped the end point on both sides of Ch5 in case the esc isn't getting a clear enough signal and still it doesn't work. So something is going wrong between the rx and the esc.
|Thread: What's flying over your house|
Are you sure? Pretty certain all Starships were bought back by the manufacturer after they decided to stop supporting spares and they were all scrapped. Might have been a P 180?
|Thread: Trooping the Colour Fly Past|
Yes, as it says on the first page of the notice all times are UTC, or Zulu, or GMT, whatever you want to call it!
Notam below. Details of formations on page 12.

|Thread: 1:1 scale Sea Vixen|
Miss demeanour is a Hunter and certainly not in a Navy scheme!
|Thread: My first Depron model...BAE Hawk|
Tony, also watching. What plan is it? Looks like one from Parkjets.com.
I'm a recent convert to the light side and have found my first parkjet to be as fun as my big toys costing hundreds times more.
|Thread: Flight Radar24|
FB3, the track is the direction of travel, or rather the compass bearing.
|Thread: Crimpers (yet again)|
Got a pair of crimpers, plugs and wire as a deal from rcworld.co.uk this week. Work well once I'd mastered the technique.
|Thread: December 25th New Models?|
Some vouchers for Gliders will see me making some purchases at the weekend.
