Thread: noise restrictions
29/08/2017 16:19:30

I An article in Sunday's mail about noise in restaurants listed places with noise levels regularly over 82 dB with some reaching over 100 dB. It would seem that some people actually like it the louder the better.

I personally hate loud 'music' in pubs, restaurants and bars weather juke box or live. In fact in my opinion high volume used by live performers is generally in order to mask lack of talent.

.Our clubs previous flying site had bullocks in it they were kept of the strip by an electric fence (apart from one that occasionally jumped the fence!) the main problem was they would lick the cars and that took the shine off and a couple tried to 'mount' the cars , knocking the wing mirrors off.blush

Surely the important thing on a profile is where you are, this would help when asking about clubs and flying sites and may prompt someone to offer help in person. If buying or selling a location may also mean someone local to decide to at least have a look at the goods before deciding to buy or arrange delivery.

Martin you have hit the nail on the head. with the law as it stands the directors of 'Limited Companies' are not held responsible for the debts of said company if it goes broke and can (and often do) re start what is in effect the same company with a slight change of company name whilst leaving the customers of the old company 'up the creek' an feel nothing for them. In other words pull the ladder up I'm OK.

Yes it stinks.angry

Thread: Can anyone identify this please
18/07/2017 09:28:51

Reminds me of when a pal at work got exited on seeing what he thought was a UFO. When we got the binoculars out we could see it was Father Christmas, actually a large inflatable santa that had 'escaped' from ??

This was slowly drifting along the flight path about 12 miles from Heathrow

Thread: Why It's Worth Spending Money On Your Flying Field
13/07/2017 10:15:30

Great. if only our club was big enough, rich enough and owned its field.

Long term it could all be for naught if the current trend of concreting over the countryside to provide houses

for ??? continues or some determined killjoy moves in near the field.

Sorry to sound like a doomsayer but I do applaud your efforts and wish you a long future at that magnificent site.

Reading Shaun Garrity's item on early mixers I remembered building an electronic one from an article in this mag way back in 97(I think) I seem to recall that I bought the components as a kit from the mag. It was completed and tested satisfactorily on the bench but never used in a model. I have tried to find it but no luck so have no idea what happened to it. I wonder if there is any one else who built one and maybe still has it?

Having seen Peter miller's comments about the mini squeeze bottles from Bang Good I looked them up and realised that I have been 'binning' 3 or 4 similar bottles every week for the last 2 or 3 years.

My wife is attempting to stop smoking by using a vaporizer and the liquid comes in similar bottles so I washed a couple out and re filled with aliphatic resin. Success! and they are free! So if you or anyone in your family is a 'vaper' 'recycle the bottles. and save money.
