Thread: How long have you been in the hobby?
22/01/2019 17:27:08

Some 60 years off and on including the "sex drugs n rock n roll years, marriage, 2 kids and a career. Airfix when I was in single figures and a plan from Boys Own Paper when I was eleven, tissue dope and a Cox 010 bought from paper round money! Loved it all, no regrets just wish I could fly like Jase Dussia!

My thoughts are with you. I lost my Chris in July after 46 years together. But as someone else said look after yourself. There are no wordsbut hopefully like me your happier memories will overcome the sad ones. Best wishes.

Thread: Battle of Britain: Model Squadron

Sorry John. The hope with reviews is that the manufacturer picks up and puts it right! Its a nice model and has good "presence".

The Dynam 110 suffered from motor timing out of the box when reviewed. A fix was published with my review in RCM&E in Sep 2015. The motors wud not sync sometimes on throttle up. Could happen in flight as well which might explain the attrition rate.

Ikonnik 6 works well in my Flitezone Beaver and Aurora 9. No probs thus far.

Sorry, just spotted the Magsuk reference!

17/03/2018 23:24:31

Many thanks Beth, really appreciated but how did it come to this ? I have 10 years of RCM and E in binders and dontwant to change. Will it still be Magsuk? Thanks again.

16/03/2018 23:58:06

Beth, Thats sad. They wont match what I have already. I will now have to review my subscription. What happened tocustomer service. You could have printed this in RCM&E and forwarned everybody. Very disappointed.

Thanks kc, have made a note but cannot believe RCM&E are not aware of the problem. Appreciate your help.

Thread: Proposed new drone legislation/registration
09/02/2018 21:38:24

Having recently attended a local airport's drone safety awareness seminar with ATC and safety managers from UKs 2nd largest airport it was disappointing how few drone fliers, both recreational and commercial understood or new about insurance. Additionally one guy thought the local council were responsible for all flying in their area ( approach to uks 2nd largest airport).

It was good to note that Nats are on "our side" and also embrace drone technology, indeed using drone runway inspection between 2 minute departure arrivals!. I trained with Nats during the late 60s and early 70s and have huge respect for their vision of safety and , I believe, their respect for our hobby.

Thread: What Happens Next
09/02/2018 21:23:42

Carry 3 or 4 triangular bandages. My 1st paramedic aid trainer taught me these can be used on nearly all physical in juries. Very versatile and cheap. cardiac stuff different - needs rapid assistance.

Thread: I'm thinking of getting a compressor
29/10/2017 17:37:34

Machine Mart do a range of Tiger compressors. Had one for several years, does bike and car tyres and several sizesof airbrush and spray guns.

Thread: Did you start with ARTF and move to building from kits or vice versa?
12/10/2017 17:15:43

Yep, need another category! Like many I was building longbefore ARTF. Do all now, kits, plans and ARTF.

Thread: Wintering
11/10/2017 10:03:46

Watch out for mice- I kid you not! They love a nice cosy fuselage and use chewing on servo leads as their winter therapy.
