|Thread: E-flite Cherokee 1.3 BNF|
Tim I have still got the original servos with no problems, I would wait until anything happens then decide what to do. I fly Futaba so cannot help with your set up, sorry.
Tim set the deflections at the the trailing edge as given in book. I set mine at book settings and it is a pussy cat to fly no problems at all a good low wing trainer but loops, rolls, spins etc and on low flap takes off quickly on full flap you could almost pick it out off the sky in a 5mph wind when landing. The hatch aerial is rubbish I changed mine to a piece of wire acting as the aerial. I've also improved the the front leg, there are suggestions on RCGroups site. I fly from a rough field and have had about 50-60 flights so far with no problems. Hope this helps, Brian

This year for the first time in British history we might see the end of May before the end of April!
|Thread: Who uses blue or pink foam?|
I get Blue foam in various thicknesses and odd shapes from a local industrial insulated roof supplier. I have to pick it up on a certain day of the week whereby the firm leaves it out before they chuck it all in a skip which I can't access.(H&S). It is used as packing sheets by the manufacturer for when the roof panels are delivered. I supply it to model aeroplane enthusiasts and some local model railway clubs and a shop locally here in Bournemouth. Maybe if people in different parts of England can find similar the supplier would be happy to give it away as otherwise it costs for a skip to be taken.

|Thread: A bit of nostalgia|
I have a few of these posters and a few box tops as well. Must get around to getting rid of them!
Here is a bit of Veron Model Aircraft History to stir our older members memories of either building some of these models or licking the model shop windows looking at the and saying one day when I'm earning enough money!
|Thread: William Layton|
As the person who instigated this thread I put it up to get the name of WILLIAM LAYTON about so no-one would give him the time of day to carry on doing it on this forum. I agree with my namesake Tom and go along with what Simon Craig is saying. It not a case of educating pork as there are some very intelligent people on this forum who can see just what I am doing. It has been reported to the police and they are happy that this discussion is on going as others have had William Layton contact them and that just proves it is a scam.
I've advertised some r/c equipment on this site and have had a reply from a person called William Layton. He didn't sound quite 100% from the start but I am quite cynical when it comes to money. This morning he has said he will give me £9000+ for my radio and I'm to send him the difference minus £100 for my trouble, all for a £90 radio Tx! Beware, I know you have all heard of this before. Needless to say he won't be getting my Radio neither my bank details or difference!
|Thread: A Glider at 76,,000ft!|
How on earth did the Airbus Perian II get to 76,000ft? It is designed to go to 90,000ft, it got to 76,000ft this week. Are there thermals to that height? who will build the first RC model of this glider.

|Thread: C of G Which way up and why?|
I use the little bump stops that you use on kitchen doors. Half spherical, self adhesive, about 20 to a sheet in B&Q.
Update on changes to UK Regulations (and the 400ft height limit) - CAA Permission & Exemption published
The recent 2018 amendments to the Air Navigation Order will come into effect on the 30th July, making it illegal to operate any unmanned aircraft (including model aircraft) above 400ft.

|Thread: Gorilla glue offer|
I store my bottles upside down and have had it last 2-3 years and use nealy all of it.
|Thread: Basen Battery|
Has any one on this forum used Basen LiIon Batteries? A few months ago whilst surfing I came across a firm that sold Basen batteries for R/C made up into 4 cells with a choice of connector on them. They also could be high discharge or low rate discharge depending on what type of plane one was flying. I wrote all the details down EXCEPT the web site! Could anyone out there help me please?
|Thread: BMFA Classifieds Scammer Alert|
I had this about 14 days ago complete scam. Same name and very similar approach. Ignore.
On Monday I placed 4 planes for sale on the this forum. Tuesday received a request for some photos from firstname.lastname@example.org which I duly sent. Wednesday relied the following letter which I believe to be a scam. So I look forward to comments on this. I have not answered nor will answer any emails from him. Brian

|Thread: Legislation Proposal at last|
It is claimed by the powers to be that this will stop criminal activity. Ha Ha. There is a sign in every town, village city saying 30mph does that stop people doing more than 30mph? There are gun laws, if your a criminal does that stop you from buying/using a gun? I own DJI450 which I have flown responsibly (I believe) I also fly model RC aircraft, which I fly responsibly and I am a member of the BMFA. What astounds me is I walk into Maplins, PCWorld etc there you have drones of all sizes and there is no facility for insurance on them in fact the staff know nothing about the BMFA insurance scheme in many cases. You hear of accidents with drones, sometimes life changing, and there is no insurance supplied by the offender. This will not stop the law breakers.

|Thread: AXI Motor repair|
AXI's do lock tight screws etc in so a little heat on them lossens the lock tight. I use a soldering iron with a thin tip. I also go to the local bearing supplier for my bearings, much cheaper and possibly better.
