|Thread: A request to the Forum Web Administrator|
It's easy if you're using an ipad, you just hold your finger on the link and it asks if you want to open it in a new window/tab.

|Thread: Steve Backshall South American Adventure|
Can't stand the guy unfortunately, however did watch the start on iPlayer, and like Martin, I reckon it's an Antonov.

|Thread: PA KATANA MD|
That's a lot of aircraft for a very good price, someone will get a bargain. I have one still in the box, same colour, same motor, wingbags and extra carbon bits. you've spurred me on to finally get it in the air.
|Thread: Dash cams|
If your still looking for a dashcam, theres a product test of dashcams in this weeks Autoexpress magazine.
|Thread: Nice TV programme on BBC iPlayer|
Cheers for the heads-up Wingman, recording on my SkyHD box now
|Thread: Viewing magazine on Android device|
Hi Katy, I'm confused now, you say the archive uses Flash, so how come I can view the archive on my iPad Air2 using iOS which has never supported Flash?
|Thread: 2016 Nationals|
Before I retired, one of the many areas I was involved in was Business Continuity. Basically it's a contingency plan that can kick in if you are unable to continue your business from your current premises, if an event occurs preventing it, e.g fire, flood etc, by moving to backup premises using designated staff and equipment.
Well I think that's answered my query, we really are a multi-national forum
..........albeit with the odd insomniac
I've noticed recently a great number of posts are being added during times when I am away "in the land of Nod". These posts are appearing at any time between midnight and 6.00am.
I find this intriguing! Is it just that the aeromodelling fraternity contains an inordinate amount of insomniacs, or if they are of a 'certain age' such as myself, find themselves visiting the smallest room in the house several times during the night, and, failing to return to the arms of Morpheus, are turning to the forum for solace?

|Thread: HobbyKing servo pin crimping tool|
Excellent pictoral explanation Chris.
|Thread: Do you fancy a new Air Show?|
That's why for the last couple of years I've gone to one of the local farms near to the runway at RIAT, that allow you to park for the day and just watch the flying display in comfort (catering and toilets on site), all for a tenner for the day, and you don't have to book in advance.
Edit: I must add that the other reason I do this is that I have difficulty walking any great distance and I find this much easier.

|Thread: Model Shops|
A simple phone call to the shop first to check stock would have saved you a trip.
|Thread: Aldi tools|
Popped into Aldi yesterday and picked up the small clamp vice for £6.99. Very good for the price. Also picked up an extending window cleaning device for the car for £2.99.
|Thread: Never realised that The Avengers had problems with RC Models|
Best of all was the Childrens Film Foundation "Sky Pirates" from 1976. Only managed to find a 5 minute clip on Youtube, but I seem to remember the whole film there at one time, although I believe the CFF now hold the rights, so may have removed it.
|Thread: Safe Discharge Dodgy Lipo|
That's a neat idea John. What I would also do is use some heatshrink on the XT60 and some insulating tape around the bulb contacts...........just in case
I've seen a Youtube video of a lipo that was just chucked into salt water without discharging first, and the problem is oxidisation forming on the cell terminals and cable ends which prevents the cells discharging. Far better to discharge using Terry's method first, then dunk in the salt water.
|Thread: Air Shows under threat|
Correction to my previous post, Shuttleworth have NOT cancelled any of their 2016 shows, I contacted them to check. Seems I quoted someone else's incorrect info. Apologies for that.
Edited By Essjay on 10/02/2016 12:17:08
Add to that Shuttleworth evening shows and flying proms.
|Thread: World's SMALLEST video drone/quad|
This is the second time in 5 days that more than one person has had to "remind" Dom of a safety "slip", so I would hesitate to call it jumping to conclusions!
Agreed John, I think "Essential RC" needs to learn a few "Essential safety rules".
