Thread: Servo Arm Numbers
12/03/2020 16:47:51

I've known about these different angles for some time. First met them on Futaba servos. Very handy for getting the servo arm as near neutral as possible without resorting to subtrim settings. Only found them by accident when fitting an arm and finding the neutral point changed as I put the arm on in a different position accidentally.

Thread: Is this weather ever going to get better!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cuban8. We have the same problem, except we can't get cars ( even 4x4) across to our field. We are 3 fields off the road and the track is passable until the last bend which refuses to drain.we have cut channels into the ditch in the past but to no use. If we take cars that far turning round is difficult. Not too bad if you fly small electric that you can carry as we can walk to the field but anything bigger is hard. Haven't been out myself since October.

I've seen the headings for this topic but not been following too closely, but in Tesco today on the magazine rack ther is a magazine dedicated to the F-86. May beuseful for detailing, didn't actually open the mag so no details.


Thread: CAA ID number discussion

As one of the committee that can update info for members on the portal, I can't find anywhere to record members OP numbers. We have recorded these on our mebership database at the moment for internal reference. As most of our members registered through the BMFA I thought there might be someway to do this.

I have to admit the the problem I had was of my own making, I was one digit wrong in the number I dialled. I didn't use my glasses and dialled a five not eight. Did get through in the end and soon sorted my problems.

Thread: What make is this
21/12/2019 19:23:16

My flush unit- one of the "Clack" valve type, not siphon worked well for about 18 months then leaked as yours does occasionally. After changing it and still having problems I found the tube from the unit to the bowl was about half an inch too long going into the bowl, putting a strain on the valve. I cut it back and has been perfect since.


Thread: Fan /Model match ?
15/12/2019 15:20:27

I know nothing about EDF but our club had a noise problem with some EDF fliers and it was reccommended to us that 12 blade fans seem to create less noise,. Just an observation.


Thread: Appointment of club committee members
15/12/2019 15:10:08

In our club the chairman does the agenda for committee meeting and he is good with coming up with new ideas to keep the club interesting - special events. The secretary deals with the paperwork and day to day practicalities. I am BMFA contact so do renewals etc. Our field mowing consists mainy of our committee as we are all retired and have been joined by one other who at the moment has been made redundant. We have a "work party" every Good Friday (no flying allowed) subject to weather and usually have a fair turn out to roll the strip, tidy up the club hut and generally tidy up the field. Apart from this day most of the "work" is done by the committee. The club members do, to be fair seem to appreciate the efforts made on their behalf and thank us at the AGM.

This equates to most of the effort being spent by7 people out of a club of 100 + 4 juniors

Should have added that the AGM is always well supported especially this year as we were discussing the CAA's latest news and geeing up those that still have to do the test and register, which was easier in a forum than one or two discussing between themselves

Every year our committee all stand down. At least a month before the AGM all members are asked for nominations. If there are any ( not too often) there is a vote at the AGM, if not the committe are reelected if they wish to stand again. We have had a turn over of committee members in the last 10 years to keep the committee fresh. Most club members go for the quiet life and let the existing committee carry on ( same as in most hobbies I have found). We did have a minor "rebellion" a few years ago by some members who thought the club should just for them on their terms but that blew over quickly.


Thread: CAA registration take-up?
15/12/2019 12:01:44

I didn't do the test but I talked a member through it over the phone as he had trouble finding the right site, he was on the A test site. He read the questions and answered them himself and passed. He then had trouble finding his pass certificate. He got there in time to renew his membership at our AGM


Thread: Thanks BMFA
