Thread: Fly tipping

What part of North Essex do you live in Cuban? I lived in Halstead for a few years before moving to Canada, born and raised in the Dengie Hundred.

Actually Glyn its FLY tipping not FLYING tip, to tip a fly you have to get a tooth pick under its back legs and lift smartish like tipping him on his back. winkthumbs up

Cuban, if you have an inconspicuous place to conceal it, something like a "game camera" preferably low light capable, you know the ones that are triggered by movement within a certain radius, that way you may be able to get a picture of person/persons who are doing the fly tipping or maybe even a plate number.

Our club invested in a web cam - I realize this is not possible for everyone - but it has stopped such activity but was not inexpensive, whatever you do it will not unfortunately stop them all.

Nice to know it is not only my little corner of the world where this happens, happens here all the time, even seeing chairs, couches and appliances dumped on the sidewalk almost in downtown yet.

Most of it is because the local dump won't/can't take it and due to re-cycling laws furniture has to be broken down into it's various components before a re-cycling depot will accept it.

Thread: Goldberg Cub - Electric Conversion - Power advice

Don't have one myself John but one club member has a cub that size and it fly's very well on a E-flite power 32, 4s lipo and a 14x7 prop if you have access check out E-calc it will give you really close numbers. There is a free demo version you can use to try, if you plan on investing in electric models totally it may be worth the purchase.

Your right on the money John.

Geoff that was a really bad call by the FBI and against all protocol, written or otherwise, makes me think of the witch hunt for the red menace in the sixty's.

09/11/2016 17:00:05

Kc you are absolutely right, they do seem to look for a certain type/person to question, had several polsters call the house phone but i've never met their criteria - wrong sex wrong age wrong ethnic group wrong education wrong country of birth - and the list goes on, so yes I do believe they look for the answers they want by selective polling.

May be different in the UK but it sure looks that way here in Canada, how they got it so wrong with Trump in every way is a mystery and a big concern to us here, going to be really interesting times, will the US actually have a fully functioning Government? considering he has split his own party to say nothing of the split along racial and religious lines of the country itself.

Be careful what you wish for you may actually get it.

Thread: hobbyking - big changes

Well finally the gas engine stock is back on line, but holy crow a pretty heavy increase in price, 20% for the one I WAS going to order plus shipping, for that money I can order it here shipping included.

Think they may lose a lot of business in some areas got to check the price of li-po's yet as they are always seem so expensive here.

Anybody tried using the search engine today? I just get returned to home page after entering about 3 characters.

Thread: The 'share your photos' thread (not model flying)
06/11/2016 20:30:23

You must have gone through Active Pass John, that is THE spot when travelling on BC Ferries for spotting Orcas, ther is a heavy salmon run through there at certain times of the year and you can see the Orcas hunting in pods, very effective at it to.

06/11/2016 20:18:43

Second one.

06/11/2016 20:15:21

Not photos John but you may or may not be able to see Mount Baker in the background.

06/11/2016 18:35:53

Hi John, no I have no idea who owns the yacht LOL but I do recognize Mount Baker - Washington State - in the background, you must have been in the Georgia Strait if you came from Vancouver or the Strait of Juan de Fuca now known as the Salish sea, named after one of the first nations people, it is not always that calm or that clear, glad you had a good time and enjoyed my adopted home.

As of 6pm pacific time Hobby King site was unavailable this side of the pond, the page that did load said " Bear with us exciting changes coming, back soon " I would say say somebody opened a big can of kick butt and told the techies to fix it, although they may have put it a little stronger than that.smiley

Thread: OpenTx - Questions and Problems
02/11/2016 17:47:37

Sorry Pete will do.

02/11/2016 17:46:59

You are lucky to have a NHS that covers most everything, here in Canada our health service is very good but does differ from province to province, however Dr's visits, emergency hospital visits and all major surgeries illness etc are tended to on a timely basis at no cost, what is not covered are Drugs,Dental,Vision and Hearing and the aids I need are venturing into the five figure $ range just not doable at the moment, so with the haptic and a set of ear buds the Tx will work just fine I think. IF IT EVER STOPS RAINING sorry shouldn't shout,force of habit. smiley
