|Thread: Disappointing Long Marston Show|
Well I was going to drive the 1 1/2 hours to the show today, but woke early this morning with a particularly dodgy tum!, so decided not to. Sounds very much like I didn't miss a lot. Good to hear that the show has got a reprieve for next year, but if this years content (by the reports) is anything to go by, will next year be any better?
|Thread: Important meeting|
Also nice to see Ali's lost none of his flying skill
|Thread: Caption me!|
The man in the shop told me, if I wanted to be a "gliderist", I needed to bite down very hard on this and the urge would go away, but it doesn't seem to be working.

|Thread: Cheap fireproof box for LiPos|
If you're using a metal box to store lipos, it might be a good idea to put the the lipos in a plastic container INSIDE the metal box, or cover the inside of the metal box with foam or plastic to prevent the batteries from shorting against the metal surface.
It's very unlikely that they would short out, but it does give that extra piece of mind.
|Thread: LARGE SCALE "electric" Hawker Tempest with BENDINI SOUND SYSTEM|
Excellent flying and sound. I think I'm right in saying this is being flown and was built by the very talented John Ranson. I think I'm also right in saying he built a very nice Hornet, again with the sound system, a few years ago.

|Thread: Flying air board|
For anyone doubting the authenticity of this acheivement, here is confirmation from the Guinness World Records own website.
I'm assuming from your comment that you didn't watch the video to the end!!
|Thread: The Reassembler|
An interesting episode tonight for all us ex BT'ers. He's reassembling a 1957 Bakelite telephone.
I suppose to everyone else this'll be like watching grass grow
|Thread: PayPal driving me nuts!|
Not sure what you mean Rich, I use my ipad all the time with my PayPal account with no problems.
|Thread: Model Aircraft Bomb release Video|

|Thread: Ronnie Corbett....RIP|

|Thread: Formula 1 new Sky Exclusive Paywall Deal|
Ok Bob, no apology necessary
Which is why I said LIVE! (One more time)

And still only available live on pay TV (BT Sport)
|Thread: Caption time again!|
Next time I call 'landing', it might be prudent to duck!
Guys, are you sure this is where the lipo goes?
George learns the hard way that he's going to need a very small stool to milk this seagull !!!
|Thread: Maplins rotary tool (Dremel clone)|
For those interested in a new rotary tool I've just seen this in the latest Maplins email advert. Looks pretty good value as you get an accessory kit as well. I have a Dremel 300 and put side by side you'd be hard pushed to tell them apart.
I've just noticed that the deal also includes a 'pen grip" flexi-shaft as well. Even better value

Signed. Ex ATC 1113 Squadron. Flew gliders at 613 Squadron RAF Halton in the late 60's early 70's.
Incidentally the link to the petition doesn't appear on my iPad. Had to use my PC.
|Thread: A request to the Forum Web Administrator|
Switching to a new tab or window can be much more useful when you need to go back and forth between the two, for instance copying stuff from one to the other.
