I'm just back from a lovely lunch. Went on an electric bike, ( beloved's cast off, very nice bike, but I do envy her new bike, carbon frame, 12 kg all up). Wall to wall sunshine, superb food, good Bordeaux to drink, very shapely and pleasant waiter. And beloved allowed me to look. And on the way back let the leccy take the strain.

I am very lucky

Thou art surely blessed. I am on my Humble Giant Defy today. Weather is great, shorts not longs. LOL

Thread: Car indicators
05/07/2019 00:08:50

Exactly JD8, the good old days when indicators were in the right place, like on one of my 100E's.

Islands are the worst tho, especially when I'm on my push bike, having to guess when to go, only to find the car in the outside lane is going all the way round.

Thread: What effect does a large cowl have on the efficiency of propeller?
02/07/2019 12:02:08

Interesting stuff.......so much so, I have just measured all of my radially cowled models and their props. All three were pretty much 2:1. That is to say the prop was twice as wide as the cowl. The biggest, a 50 cc Gilmore has a 22 X 10 prop and the cowl is 12" across.

This would seem to confirm what JD8 has said above.

Me and the Missus went to B and Q today to buy some things. As we walked away from the van, I noticed a small motorbike carrying two youths, with a weird number plate, I commented to her indoors re the illegal plate, and as we watched they went straight to my van and started to get in with a large screwdriver..............

At that I legged it back, about a hundred yards, with the Missus howling at them. As I got there the pillion was back on the bike, but they had to go around the hedges on the car park.....I went through em.........I had them, thought I............ only to be threatened with a 12" screwdriver. Decision made ..........leave it, even if I had got them off the bike, I didn't fancy that in my tripes.........LOL

Good News ??????

Yeah, I still got my Van........smile d

I got them from Hobby King Steven. They are 1/6th scale

I had ordered some from probuild on back order, called Miracle 1/6th pilots, but they cancelled the order on me.

The ones from Hobby King are not quite the same but are a close enough alternative.

Here's a miracle one in the Moth.
