Thread: Bungee
09/04/2018 14:14:13

Thanks PatMc

No Slopes within 20 miles of where I live. Appreciate that Duration will be short lived. Better than nothing though.

Did Bungee a Cambria Models Slingsby T49 b Capstan a few years ago now but, the Site I used is no longer available.

Will give it a go in due course.

I have been given a West Wings Swallow Semi-Scale Glider Kit.

My problem is that I have no experience of Bungee Launching!

Anyone able to help as to what components I need, as the Aircraft is very light?

Can anyone Scan a copy of the Article from September 2015 about the Aileron Wing?

I have the Plan, with the Autogyro, but have lost the Magazine including the related Text.

Am aware that I could get it with a backnumber but am not very flush, being a Pensioner.

Many thanks



Thread: Do you think some sort of registration system would protect the hobby from rogue flyers?
11/02/2016 08:37:38

It would not prevent the Lunatic Fringe doing what they wish!

Speeding, mobile phone used whilst driving, drinking & driving etc. All done despite the existing laws.

The main point is, if they cannot respect those laws, and they are almost unenforceable, who is going to enforce registration and compliance? Certainly not the police, who have difficulties enforcing the laws on the statue book currently!!

Have a look on the BMFA Web Site for Clubs in your Area.

I have no experience on the friendliness aspect, as I live in Redditch!
