Thread: Has Your Club Made Any Decisions Regarding The Coronavirus?
21/03/2020 08:18:45

Right now, I am smiling at the reporting of the 'severe measures' imposed last night with the closure of clubs, pubs and bars etc. That is just the start of it if the controls currently imposed here in France are anything to go by. Briefly, I can only leave my house for a few specific reasons, such as food shopping, go to essential work or visit a doctor. I can only leave the garden for some exercise such as a brief walk close in proximity to the house. No cycling, no angling, no walks in the woods. No visiting friends or family for a meal etc.

If the measures here are adopted in the UK, as they surely must soon if lockdown is to have any effect, then any preparations being made at club fields etc for continuing leisure activities are optimistic in the extreme.

Stay safe, folks.

Glad to hear you're all well.

Dropped a clanger the other day, looking for a shop entrance and missed it, ended up driving in a bus lane.

Today I get a fixed penalty fine. Cheers my dear, hope they run outa loo roll. blush

Glad you're doing your bit to assuage the forthcoming National Debt rise, John!wink 2

Keep it light, folks - we've a long way to go before we can justify being tetchy....wink 2


Thread: Drone crashes are now investigated by the AAIB
14/03/2020 17:50:46

Gents, apologies for something beyond my control. I edited the title as requested after looking at the thread which definitely contained a number of posts. I saved the one-letter change and all except Steve J's post had disappeared into the ether when the page re-loaded....crook

It wasn't finger trouble, honest!

Please feel free to post the thread opener again, leccythumbs up

There is Pete who always pretend his (costly) visits to Barcelona or Paul Ricard don't bring him a clue forward.



Too busy driving or flashing up the barby to do any worthwhile research, Chris, I assure youteeth 2

I was so pleased to be able to get the F1TV 'all races live' subscription at a sensible price here in France this year too......face 22

Now I think I'm looking forward to a refund on my Spanish ticket with the way things are going - and possibly Austria too...crying 2

Autosport announcing cancellation of Australian GP, subject to statement by FIA and F1. Just announced on Sky News, too.face 21

Anyone for online dominos, snap, snakes and ladders - or can we have a Fantasy Fantasy F1?teeth 2

Every cloud has a silver lining.....

Look at it this way. All those panic-buying stocks of loo roll and pasta clearly intend to spend weeks and weeks at home, not emerging into public at all.

That's got to be a good thing for the rest of us, surely?teeth 2

As we were 15 in 2019, we are short of 2 'oldies'... frown

With all this 'flu about, losing only 2 'oldies' over the winter isn't bad going......teeth 2teeth 2teeth 2

You'll all be pleased to know I didn't learn anything from my days at Testing that will help this season...teeth 2

Not sure about the Alpha Tauri paint scheme - reminds me of the WW1 dazzle-pattern camouflage!

I haven't picked a team yet - and your comments above are filling me with gloom. It was hard enough last year...face 7


Thread: CAA ID number discussion

Posted by trebor on 23/02/2020 17:26:01:

Pete, of course it was "tongue in cheek" dont forget to delete your post with my quote in case they report you laugh

I'd like to say I'm out of reach over here in sunny France - although my CAA ID arrived yesterdaysmile

You think you've got it difficult in the UK - here I have a different registration number for each model and the IFF bit is approaching (allegedly!)face 22

We could have our own Extinction Rebellion called the CAA Rebellion, go to the head office and dig some turf angry 2 I,ve got my spade in the car yes

Trebor, please reassure me and others who have reported this post as being irresponsible that it was intended as a 'tongue in cheek' comment, rather than a plan for the next wet flying day.....otherwise I'll have to remove itsmile


Thread: Self explanatory
19/02/2020 16:47:04

If the figure talking didn't have a pigtail I'm sure the same therapy would

I'm also sure that if the lady flyers amongst us took exception to this they would not hesitate to let us know!

I don't believe the OP intended to cause hurt or upset to anyone and we see far, far worse every day, so until genuine harm or offence has been caused to anyone I see no reason for moderating the post.

This doesn't give a green light to anyone and everyone posting similar cartoons, by the way. We mods do draw a line but I don't believe this has reached it.

Ade - good to hear it thumbs up

Pete - if you're going to Barcelona for more 'inside information' I'll have to blow the dust off my video of my half-lap at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve in 2018. (Not that it helped me much last year!)

Just over a month until Melbourne... smile d

Dust it off and put it up here, p

You can't shake me off that easily - hoping for better this yearwink 2

Can I suggest an admin moves this thread into a 'general' section? This part of the forum is supposed to be for PSS mass build discussions.

Edited to add: ......or better yet close it as this topic has been done to death.

Done. I agree, the OP has the answer, the rules are fairly clear...

I'm a little late to the party but can I remind those concerned that on this forum we conduct ourselves with courtesy and civility towards other members. You can disagree with someone without resorting to insults. If that's not possible, then either scroll past the post or use the PM system to argue.

Thanks for your cooperation - I'll put this down to being weather-related.....dont know


Thread: Do you remove your lipo from your transmitter every time?.

Getting a tad heated here so, as there is enough info now for folk to make their own judgement, I'll do as Don suggested earlier and draw a line under this
