|Thread: How many flyable models do you have?|
10 that could goafter a charge. 1 getting a new petrol motor, 1 scale been building for 3 years, 1 nude electric being covered, small Aldi heli to keep grandkids amused and an Inductrix drone I won in this years club dinner raffle. Cost me a bit to get a DSMX trannie to get that going though!
I think some of us may have more serviceable aircraft than the RAF!
|Thread: Help with a Laser ID|
Hows that look Jon.?
Thanks Jon. Will try and do with my tablet! Be a first for me!
Hi, Got a Laser engine with a purple anodised carb and P2 on the engine mount lugs. It also has a 6 finned cyl head. Just need to know if its a 90 or 91 if anyone can help please. Its probaby 8 to 10 years old or thereabouts. Thanks everyone.
|Thread: How do fairy lights work?|
Bet you did that to flies too!
Everyone knows that Fairies dont die - that would be cruel!
|Thread: R.I.P. Rick Parfitt|
Yes, very sad news. Feeling my mortality now - my 68th birthday was last week! Thoughts with all his family at this time of year. Great musician.
|Thread: France to implement onerous new drone laws|
Tend to agree with Gonzo. Primary radar pulses are pretty high power and travel a long way. They come from a Klystron ( back in my day at NATS anyway). Secondary radar (equates to transponders) also complex to carry all the data needed for a regional ATC to manage eg Swanage. They have more tha enough to manage with both military and civil passenger carrying full-size and all the VFR traffic as well. They really dont need drone UAVs (multirotors) To try and manage as well! IMHO for what its worth although I appreciate the commercial benefits of multirotors.
|Thread: Wot 4 mk 3 what engine to fit.|
Have an Irvine 46 in mine. On song it goes like the proverbial stuff off the shovel! My other Wot4 had an SC52 4 stroke in but a bit more staid so about to try an Irvine 53 in it. Looking forward to it!
|Thread: Sink or swim|
Glynn, Nope, not even in the bath! Missus isnt a fan of IC exhaust sadly, even with the window open. She wont let me run my planes in the kitchen either!
Erm! I built a Vic Smeed designed boat(Moonglow) back in the early 70s while wife was in hospital with a Cipolla IC engine . (boat had the Cipolla, not wife!)Took it to local lake, waders on etc to find council had removed clay, water had drained so no boating. Still have boat, not sailed yet!
Working on the assumption that councils can't drain the sky (although some might want to!)
But variety is the spice of life - give it a go.
|Thread: Christmas wishes|
Yep. All the very best to everyone for Xmas and if anyone can curtail the wind a bit for next year even more best wishes. Ok I know the soarers like a bit of wind and best wishes to all of them as well. Here's hoping for lots of goodies from the man in the red outfit (Steve Webbs longest day may help as well!)
|Thread: hobbyking - big changes|
I wonder if HK will announce a new site to put everything right! I'll be managing without them whatever. Still admiring everyone's patience and perseverance though.
And how did it not get signed off by HK Executive who should really be accountable if it had been a half decent project plan!?
Donald, maybe worth trying Companies House? Not sure how they are registered. Think I, ll stick with UK based traders. Maybe bit dearer but loss less stress!
I have to admire you guys perseverance! Working for thr big blue budgie in the 90s we would always have had a comprehensive project plan milestones, critical path events etc. When doing the Millenium bug project in 2000 we had tested virtually every scenario to destruction, hence my night as as a project manager on 31 dec 1999 was totally incident free. Obviously HK failed toattract the right IT staff! ( And maybe senior management who cant manage! but should still be accountable under project management principles)
|Thread: Leonard Cohen|
Button my lip! His lyrics were on a par with the the great poets. His voice may have been an acquired taste but he still had a profound effect on contemporary music. One of the greats.
Absolutely! What a giant of music - a true minstrel.
