No, and I accept that I could be wrong, the Ambulance staff don't have the legal power to force entry.

My point is that the Ambulance staff have been called to render assistance, they would have done everything they could to do this. If one happened to break a vase or scratch something they won't have done this intentionally. So, maybe give them a break? I know that the Staff won't pay out of their own pockets but did they intend to break/scratch something in trying to render their assistance? Highly unlikely. Why do we have to sue or claim for everything? Why can't we be grateful for help and pick up the pieces and count our blessings?

I've written this and then nearly deleted it several times. I'm not trying to cause an argument, I know virtually nothing about happened here, hence my reticence to comment at all. I just get a little fed up with the speed at which society wants to blame someone and claim off someone, anyone at all. I totally accept I may be wrong here with so little information but an Ambulance Crew on a call? I'd be grateful for their assistance, they do a job I couldn't do.

Totally agree, 1000%

I've been with AOL since 2006, and I had the same Email about OATH, but have done nothing about it.

I see there is no mention of a tarmac or concrete runway.

If using old COG's, make sure you check the "use by" date.

Thread: BE2e Centre of Gravity Position.

Full size aircraft with "tandem" cockpits, Tiger moth, Moth Minor, Jung mann, Chipmunk etc. balance on the region of the front (passenger) seat so the balance does not alter between passenger on board, and no passenger. So a scale(ish) model should balance similarly.

I have to say i would not be as dismissive of the c/g on the plan. Its in about the same place as my Stampe and there was heated debate on the position of the c/g for that and yet i have found it pretty much perfect. If we assume that 1/3 of the mean aerodynamic chord is about where you want to be (12.5cm aft of top wing l/e if my maths is correct) i dont think that the 17cm described is beyond possible given the type of model.

I would balance it like any other biplane, on the recommended c/g but about 10-15 degrees nose down.

You say its 'an handful' but what specifically is wrong? I ask as even with a wonky c/g it should still be quite docile

The Stampe has swept back wings,similar to a Tiger Moth, that is why the C.G. is further back.

Thread: First Bi-Plane

Now it's looking " scalish", it does need the interplane struts.

Thread: Dolly pics or drawings

Take off diagonally across the runway, the dolly runs on to the edge of the runway out of the way.

As the posh would say, they are " reassuringly expensive" !

Thread: Inverted dihedral

Posted by Glyn44 on 07/09/2016 07:37:58:

I am trying to work out what the effects would be of a model with wing dihedral that was down instead of up. Would it fly?

As well as all above, it would look " funny" !

seems to be a lot of complex stuff to have to do to achieve a certificate that is purely voluntary ..... to fly a model aircraft...ok some sites say you must hold an A to fly on your think it will put people off and also deter people becoming examiner's...we are talking about a hobby/sport.....i would like to know who decided on the change etc? ....

ken club examiner dept.

Exactly what I ( and others ) think.
