I, met Phill a couple of times at Fly-ins organised through the other forum, a nice guy but sadly not able to join in fully due to long standing illness. Sad to hear.

They are the ones Cuban 8, sadly I only have 10 Vol 11 is missing.

I am in the process of clearing out all sorts of old (and forgotten) books and have found a set (Volumes 1 to10) of books titled Wings.

I con not remember where or when I got them so any information would be helpful. They have the look of having been published as a series of magazines an are in hard back holders. There is no Publication data in the front of any of them, looking through the would seem to originate from the late 1970s,judging from the details in the text.

Any body know any thing about them and any ideas of value?

Cuban 8

the price charged for oil by servicing firms is very over inflated

.In the past I have been charged £40 for oil that was sold by motor accessory shops for £14 a gallon tin,. The garage or dealer gets the oil in bulk at a far lower price but relies on the customer being ignorant of this fact. One way over this is to buy your oil from the shop and instruct the garage to use the oil you supply.

.This also applies to screen wash.

Do you think this would be OTT ?

After getting caught a couple of times when launching my Wildwing (speed 400 Gunther prop) I fitted a hook and used a catapult l;aunch, just let the model get clear of the bungee line with a bit of height before starting the motor..

Thread: June 2020 RCM&E

I am struggling to read my June issue due to cataracts (operation delayed by current priorities) and note that both free plans use 'Jedelski wings. I can remember that this wing type does not have a bottom skin but leaves the ribs exposed, I wonder if many of our younger readers are aware of this and there is no explanation on either plan.

Hi Tony

I think this lockdown is having a similar effect on many of us, so much time that we just want to put everything off till later and no rush to do anything.

Something to keep you occupied when self-isolating.

Thread: All laser pointer users to be registered.
26/02/2020 10:48:53

Hand guns were banned but gun crime has increased. Laws that cannot be enforced are pointless.

Drones can still be bought and used by idiots, Guns can still be obtained and used by gang members, Laser pointers are freely available for any idiot to use, I can not think of an answer to these problems, can you ?.

Thread: From a Wing to a Disc

Similar to a 'Nutball'
