Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread

My opinion,

Just do it ,for the sake of £9 and simple enough test, do it.

The police will not bother law abiding clubs or free flyers.

Only those people who fly near airports ,in towns /cities. or public events and parks.

the police have better things to do catching criminals .

Kelvin thumbs upsmiley.

Thread: Latest CAA Update

If my club registers then I will comply for the sake of my club.

If I have to register as an individual then I will leave my club and free fly as I did for several years.

I am making a stand . This is a hobby with a very good safety record.

People who buy drones and fly them near airports, main roads, smuggling goods into prison and so on are not going to register so how do we who on the whole fly with safety in mind ,insurance and obey air laws be forced to register when so called drones have been around for 10 years or so without causing any loss of life due to an air strike etc.

The Police have a lot more to deal with than someone with a toy aircraft, although you can get arrested for raising your voice to your wife (ask me how I know).

So bring it on you sad little PC law makerscheekydisgustcrook

Thanks for the feedback will contact Mike Ridley when I find the time.

Update on charging, charged up with the wall wart fully charged.

Several minutes after taking off charge it switched itself on.Turned it off, 5 mins or so later it switched itself on again?? switched it off ,waited half hour did not restart.

Been in is box 3days.Just checked still showing voltage loss.

will check to see if anything glows later.

I have 3x Futaba 6ex TX never any problems on the ground or in the air.

It puts you off a leading brand name even if it is an easy fix.

Update to discharge problem when not in use the new DX6e.

Still complete discharge after 2 weeks will disconnect to see if li-on holds charge.

Should not happen when it is an expensive horizon upgrade ??

I like the radio not put off by this, may go back to dry cell to see if they last longer .

I have a DX6e Spektrum Lithium battery upgrade discharge fault sad.

Bit of a bummer, had Futaba for years no problems of any kind.smileyyes.

Is it safe to fly or am I at risk of battery failure, not keen on sending the Tx back for repair or is it safe if I change it back to dry cells ????.

Not impressed disgust

Thread: E-flite Hawker Hurricane chat

Just put one of these together after sitting in my room for several years.list of faults flaws-
Wings have a bit of a gap in the join.
Switch for esc fell off the fusalage.
Gap between LE and fusalage.
Retracts nightmare doors fouling square gear covers fouling uc legs.gear doors stand proud of wing.
Both aileron hinges splitting only use to set up radio.
Strap for lipo poor.
Apart from those nigles very nice model.
I purchased a DX6e with a 610 rx. Impressed with this radio gears ease of use simples.having to use the bind plug is a bit of a bind being used to the simpler futaba.
Will post some pics soon.
Thread: Mode 1 or Mode 2

So long as it is fun does not matter if it is 1.2.3 or 4 mode.
Although mode 2 is the correct mode as we all should know .
