Maidened this Ripmax EasyStreet 2 yesterday - 3S power train: what a lovely flyer - only needed a few clicks of right aileron and two of up elevator...then smooth steady aeros and plenty of oomph! I normally fly IC but our patch has been churned up by motorbikes so this is an ideal model to get a flying 'fix' over the winter months

I have only just watched this on IPlayer and I'm very impressed at the positive / sensible tone from the presenter and the fact that she so evidently enjoyed her flying lesson whilst appreciating how challenging it can be.

Well done to all involved

Thread: Best De-humidifier for the workshop?
20/11/2019 13:31:30

No Piers there is no radiator and I only heat it with an electrical space fan heater when I’m working and when it’s cold

I have a workshop that is a 'small' double garage - even though it is insulated well after a refurb four years ago I am having some condensation problems and would like to invest in a small (desktop?) dehumidifier preferably one that has a continuous drain that I can feed into a sink and leave running.

Any suggestions on make / model would be appreciated

That's a great looking Hurricane Trevor - well done! For me it is the quality of the finish rather than the colour scheme that is most important

Yes we watch it - it is fascinating and there is an aerial shot int he opening credits of an open area next to the location that seems to have a pilots box in it although I suspect it is for horse dressage or something like that

Thread: Best Dremel Clone
07/08/2019 00:26:34

I bought a Maplins clone about three years ago to replace an old Dremmel that had died but at higher speeds the vibrations the clone created were quite unpleasant so I reverted back to a new corded Dremmel and then bought a cordless one too!

Maidened today: Sebart Katana 120 size - powered by an OS 120AX. Four flights - flew beautifully!img_7164.jpg

Thread: Field boxes
09/07/2019 22:47:34

Can’t disagree with the comments above; I still have a power panel but rarely use it. Instead I have a Prolux rechargeable fuel pump, rechargeable glow sticks and a rechargeable Align starter.....however the tools, fuel & spares I carry are used by me and pals on the flightline

Back to the OP - yes Martin and not just BMWs!

At the risk of being Victor Meldrew I see more and more cars parked on double yellow lines and/or blocking a junction or worst of all on zig zag lines near a pedestrian crossing...police cars go sailing by probably because they have more important business 🤔

Last year one rainy evening Whilst waiting for a taxi near Twickenham a car pulled into a supermarket disabled spot - the passenger got out to buy what turned out to be booze...The driver a young woman who remained in the car failed to display a blue badge so I shook my head silently in disgust. This provoked a tirade of abuse from her and the excuse that she was “very heavily pregnant “.... my wife then told her in no uncertain terms that was not a disability but to no avail and we were then subjected to abuse from the passenger as she returned with her cider and died for these idiots and their bad manners on the Normandy beaches 75 years ago.....enough said

Maidened today a Sebart 50E PC 21 powered by an inverted OS 81 alpha F/S; just a few clicks of trim and she flew very well although inverted in a half cuban seemed to stress the engine so the plumbing needs checking. Landings were slow enough not to require the recommended flaperon dialled into my Tx. A very nice model indeed

Yep that was the case with our club and now there are no club meetings save for the occasional special one and the AGM

OK thanks for your help David

It's hard to remember exactly but I am pretty much sure that the payment was not made through model flying website rather through the mytimemedia website as this was referenced in the paper reminder I received

Hope this helps
