Thread: Confirmation - The World Really Has Gone Mad......

About time that cyclists have to pay a £16.50 registration fee and take a test, never mind us.

I pay £45 per Annum already Martin, as a member of Cycling UK (formerly the CTC), in order to protect my self from irate and aggressive motorists. I will also pay the £16.50 reg fee and you can rest easy mate.

You may also be interested to know that road tax was introduced by cyclists, for cyclists, to keep the roads fit to ride on. That's the next jibe I usually get when encountering angry car drivers......You should pay road tax. It was abolished and we all pay for road repairs thru our council tax bill. V.E.D is based on emissions, which sounds like you should pay more if that much black smoke comes out of your tail pipe. You may want to ride your bike more, that way you may be more patient when encountering us more vunerable road users.

I also own a big Van.

It is the responsibility of all road users to look out for the more vulnerable users on the highways.

When I drive my van I look out for cyclists and pedestrians and animals, when I commute to work, I cycle, and I look out for pedestrians and animals, as I assume vehicle drivers are looking out for me.

I thought everyone is taught this. Plus it's in the highway code.

You should try cycling to work for a month Gary, it may change your mind.

One of them said he was growing a beard and changing his shirt.

If they had Bowler hats they could pass as the Thompson Twins.

I dug the Plan out for the L'il cub today and had a look.

Rx are relatively cheap @ £20.

On my one the elevator join rod passes through an add on piece of balsa about 50 mm wide. This sits in between the two elevator halves, and is joined to the tail plane. The two elevator halves sit either side of the middle piece, the elevator joiner tube is glued in between the tail plane and the centre piece.

This pic shows the tail plane centre bit, where the tube is buried.

The elevator halves are then fitted onto the hinges and the joiner rod.

You can always omit the tube and add the elevators with joiner wire fitted then fit the centre piece, sandwiching the joiner in the pre grooved balsa. However you need to take care to not glue the wire in...........that is why the tube is used in the first place.

This is something I want to build too Martin, so a build thread is just the ticket. Mine would be electric.

Looks the Mutts just now Mate, keep up the Stirling effort.

I think the answer is, that it is not critical, all the J60's I have seen/flown do so with equal success.

If you construct the wing "equal" on both panels you won't have any problems when she takes to the air.

Good luck and keep up the good work.

Chortle......................

I did a refurb of a J60 I bought from a swap meet a few years ago, but all the pics have been lost. It was a bare bones buy, built but not covered and it would have helped immensely with the J60 build Q's we have had lately.

Thread: Weston Park Worth the Risk of Showers?
13/06/2019 18:32:30

Its a fantastic show.............whether its worth a 100 mile trip to stand in the rain I could not say. The local weather for Sat says showers after 14.00 at the moment.

The stalls are well worth going for and you may get to see some flying even with showers going on.
