Good luck with the challenge. Hopefully the time covering the model won’t cause you to loose the race

Looks like wood with slots at the correct angle, capped off with some aluminium or plastic tubing.

I do like my IPad, even though it’s a couple of years old.

Thread: When to Maiden your first new build?
12/01/2020 11:27:09

I’ve maiden a few planes for other people. I ask them is the cg correct, we check if needed. If they don’t know it stays on the ground. Run the engine up, any issues it’s on the ground, same with the high/low throws and range check.

Other than that it’s tell the owner I will do everything in my life to bring it back in one piece but that something sometimes happens.

I would say that trimming a model would have little effect on how it flies being tail heavy. It would still be pitch twitchy with throttle and elevators. Refitting the cowl it’s nose heavy so trimming would be needed but move a battery back and rebalance when home

Wait until the weather is in your favour. Gentle breeze down your runway is, as you know ,ideal.

  • It means that you can see the plane reaction to the Tx rather than trying to fly it to weather conditions.
  • Get a club member to check for correct surface throws.
  • double check cg
  • do a thoroughly sorted range check...with power on as well
  • end of excuses...go fly

A club member is covering a model with nylon and dope. I hope to get a lesson with this technique soon.

Oracover ( profilm as it was ) and Hobbyking. There is also nylon and dope.

Bracing wire spreader bars......number 27

Would someone please explain how the rigging wire spreader rods are made and fitted at the mid point where they cross over. Thanks in anticipation.

Have a look at page 14 on this thread. I managed to find pictures on how I did mine.

The remote ID requirements seem to apply only to RTF products, but the devil is in the detail and it wouldn't surprise me if UK legislators decided to move in the same direction as France where remote ID is required for anything over 250g outside certain recognised flying sites.

We should get an idea how things are going to go when the DfT respond to the Commons STC report. The report recommends that "The Government should ensure all drones, including existing drones, are electronically conspicuous within two years.".

All mine are visually Is the report assuming drone as in quadcopters or the correct usage and UAVs

I’m I being thick, obtuse, but I really can’t see any problem with the current system that the CAA and the bmfa have come up with.

The only thing that has changed are you have a

  • £9 registration.
  • If you don’t have an A then you show the authority you have a knowledge of rudimentary safety. Which, frankly, if you don’t ,you shouldn’t fly

And that’s it. Any ordinary A club flier that doesn’t go outside his patch has no real noticeable changes.

It seems to me we have a workable, fair, amicable system.

Who knows what will happen in the future? Let’s get out there, fly as much as we can, help our associates and leaders by showing a responsibility and a warm welcome to whoever comes along.

CAA registration is here to stay. Get over it.


And what has the BMFA ever given us. For aqueduct, wine, , help in securing flying sites under threat, a flying centre, a simulator trailer, insurance, fighting our corner over the last year.

Rant over

Photos can only be in jpeg format. IIRC if you take a screenshot of a page on the iPad it’s not in jpeg so will not be saved in the albums

Had to phone the office Wednesday to renew some non flying members (can't do on the Portal) with no problem. Tried yesterday and today to correct some errors on my bulk renewals and the phone just rings and rings. I appreciate they probably are overloaded with queries with the extra bits this year, but normally you get a recorded message saying "your call will be answered as soon as possible" but there is no message just the phone ringing.Tried an email and no reply to that either.

Has anyone else had problems?


Just phenomenally busy phone lines and many many emails at the moment. We are getting through them though.

Andy, will you send everyone up there a very happy new year. And thank them for all the work that they do. The unsung stars of the organisation hot
