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?.
11/01/2020 17:52:00

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


Thread: CAA Registration Impact on STEM Activities
07/01/2020 19:04:41

Now that we all know what STEM is, perhaps we can concentrate on the thread topic, eh?


Thread: Tufcote / Furniglass
05/01/2020 13:50:59

Gents, there's a bit of thread drift here. If you want to discuss ammo please feel welcome to start a thread in Chit-chat and we'll keep this one on-topic about fuelproofing, ta.....wink 2


Thread: Very heavy drones!

Further on the Aphrodite project, it cost the life of one of the Kennedy brothers: **LINK**

Hi Kiwikid,

I edited the heading but for some obscure reason it has also deleted your first post containing the video! I was able to copy the video URL so I'm re-posting it here. Apologies - haven't a clue what happened!smile o

Now Pete. You are being provocative and opaque. It is clearly an argument, looking for a subject.

We really do need a 'Like' button here...teeth 2


Thread: What make is this
21/12/2019 17:01:04

These modern systems, with the refill controlled by a float sliding up the plastic column, seem to be prone to this, certainly here in France. They are a pain - I've had to replace mine and an elderly neighbour's.You could try sanding off any excess flashing on the guide part of the shaft to make sure it has as little resistance as possible. Glueing a small block of EPS to the float might overcome the lack of oomph in the, what seems to me, marginally-sized float.

I don't think they have anything like the reliability and longevity of the lever-arm ballcock system. Progress, eh?crook


Thread: From one simple question to chaos

There's a bunch of mods sitting here wondering what this thread is about....dont know

Go on - give us a clue.....wink 2


Thread: Merry Christmas

Only one post from the UK so far! teeth 2

Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year to all!!

Wishing you plenty of gift, a bit of beer orcocktail whatever your tipple is, and I hope you don't end up feeling like this....crook


Thread: How to contact the site moderators!

There is a problem with marking of topics on this forum.

Once I have read any post in a topic the topic title stays greyed out as it there no more new posts even when there are new posts. Is this standard practice and if so what use is it like this and can it be corrected.

The greying-out merely indicates that it is a thread you've previously opened, Andy. I don't think the forum software would extend to such luxuries as detecting new posts in a thread.

If you wish to follow a thread, you have the option to get email notifications of additions by ticking the box below the reply field at the bottom of the page.

Hope this helps...thumbs up

There doesn't seem to be any reason why you're not getting responses to that thread other than perhaps readers are just lurking or, Heaven forbid, there isn't a lot of interest amongst readers.

A mod is needed to transfer posts, Martin, but can only do so after you have started a thread - we cannot start one in your name. It also depends on how many posts you were thinking of having transferred - it's a time-consuming process and we normally only do so if there is no alternative solution.

To be honest, I don't think starting a new thread would achieve anything better than the existing lack of response...face 11


Thread: The Gov't, CAA, BMFA & UAV legislation thread
09/12/2019 21:21:53

If you mean the glider in your avatar, Michael, it would be better to post the original-sized pic in a new thread in the gliding section and ask there. Better to keep this thread on-topic, thanks....thumbs up


Thread: BMFA News Dec 2019
08/12/2019 21:56:06

Post deleted - we can't tolerate personal attacks here. Please think before you post, or even better, have a read of the C of C....sarcastic


Thread: Fantasy Formula 1

Well done John S for today's win - great points score! Well done to Chris too on a great season's racingthumbs up

Finally managed to get a 1-2-3 in the right order today, about time too!teeth 2

Pondered binning Leclerc and going for Bottas after P3 yesterday but didn't have the nerve - pity, as a quick calc seems it would have given me another 40+ points. Ah well, there's always next p

Finally, a huge vote of thanks to John P for yet again performing magnificently as our very own Race Directorthumbs upthumbs upthumbs up

Ordered my tickets for Spain and Austria 2020 yesterday taking advantage of a 15% Black Friday discount, so now looking forward to a few days at testing in Barcelona in February - snow permitting!smile p

Totally agree, Kevin - but I like CAKE!!!teeth 2

This year I thought I'd be a bit more scientific with the Xmas cake, which I made, along with the Xmas pud, at the beginning of November. Always use the Delia Smith recipe and usually just use a toothpick and teaspoon to administer the regular anointings of armagnac. I'm using a hypodermic and needle this year, about 10cc(ishteeth 2) each side every ten days - the next is due p
