Sorry to hear that news. What Brian didn't know about IC could have been written on a Post-it note. His legacy will be the many, many articles and 'how-to's' that have helped thousands of model flyers across the world.

Condolences to his family and friends.

RIP Brian

The search function isn't too sophisticated, unfortunately, as it only search headings and the phrasing must be identical with the original, so it's best to select one keyword and scroll through the results to find the thread you want.

Both the above methods work, too...thumbs up

Still can't predict and my teams lost the plot, giz a shout if you find it, well done lads.

Me neither - two correct predictions in the past two races really hasn't done me any favourscrying 2

It can all be best summed up by the phrase from the financial world 'past performance is not an indicator of future outcomes'.......wink 2

Well done, Chris!

Bit miffed with Vettel as his overtake at the end cost me getting on for about 20 points...face 5

Ah well, eyes down and look in for Spa!smile p

Hang on, channel 4 shows penalties I may lose a few points

Yep - from, "Raikkonen and Giovinazzi had 30 seconds added to their race times for use of driver aids at the start."

That's already accounted for in the results published. Amongst other changes, it elevates Hamilton up to 9th.

Yes, John - just checked the website and they haven't yet adjusted the points - not that it'll make much difference to me!embarrassed

The trouble with an 84 page thread is that posters are loathe to read what has been said a hundred times before. wink

And if you try to start a second thread the moderators will slap you down.

Believe me Tom, given the amount of time the mods have had to devote to monitoring this thread, there won't be an opportunity for a second electric car thread.....dont know


Thread: SIG Kadet LT-40 Build - My first proper build!
24/07/2019 09:43:17

I've removed a number of off-topic posts from the thread. If any of you have any differences of opinion, deal with them, privately rather than use any handy thread as a boxing ring. It's rather rude, to say the leastface 5

Nu Me 1, I'll apologise on behalf of the mods for letting this interfere with a useful, informative build thread. We will keep an eye on things. I'm sure the majority of viewers would prefer that you continue to share the build as you're getting good advice herethumbs up

Reminds me of my first moped a step thru with pedals, it had a 1/2 gal fuel tank, I only ran out of petrol once and had to pedal 3 miles home.................... never did it again............................

Been there, Frank, and heartily agree. Mine was an NSU Quickly (an oxymoron if I ever heard oneteeth 2). ISTR spending more time pedalling it than being propelled....crook

Doc Martin.

My final comment NOT an anti American rant. Watch this and judge for yourself?.


Honestly wilco I'm not interested, I haven't opened the link nor do I intend to. This is a topic about the moon landings not a political debate

I really must thank Mr. S. Vettel for his timely assistance yesterdayteeth 2

In the league, there seems to be a gap opening up between the top teams and the midfield. I'm definitely the Gasly here at present but how soon will that become the Vettel...???wink 2

Thread: Commons Science and Technology Committee Enquiry on Drones
27/06/2019 18:49:09

I don't think it's a matter of being over-sensitive. I think it's exposed the core attitude of the 'full-size' organisations as to their disdainful dismissal of model flyers as an irrelevance. Make no mistake, this is about money and the use of sub-500ft airspace for commercial use. They would be far happier to sweep us aside without any consideration... we are economically worth zilchface 5

I've just emailed NATS here.

I am utterly appalled at the description given to 'drone flyers' as 'clueless, careless or criminal' by your NATS representative in yesterday's Science and Technology Committee sitting. I am a member of the BMFA and have flown radio-controlled model aircraft since 1975.

It is no fault of we model flyers that the authorities have decided to include our activities, as well as those of the irresponsible minority of multi-rotor flyers, in an oppressive, restrictive piece of legislation which will have significant consequences on our, so far over many, many years, demonstrably safe hobby.

It is apparent that NATS has a partisan and jaundiced view of model flyers. If not, then it has demonstrated a lamentable lack of understanding of the subject. Such a prejudiced view from witnesses should have no part in Parliamentary proceedings.

Andy Sage is clearly not competent in his role and consideration should be given to replacing him with one who is more open-minded and knowledgeable on the subject. At the very least, a public apology and retraction of that statement by the head of NATS is the least that we should expect.

I await your response with interest - as do the 36000 BMFA members who fly in the UK.

Not expecting anything constructive from this but, hey, it gets it off your

I'm sure SR71 is your best bet for contacting the other guys, John, so we'll leave it to him.

Meanwhile, best wishes for a speedy recovery - and don't give the nurses too much grief!teeth 2

I can assure you, Don, that I don't believe anything useful could ever have grown on this bit of France. That's why they probably decided to build a race track hereteeth 2

I have to admit to imbibing a glass or two of Chilean Merlot from Lidl this evening...embarrassed

Chris, will you kindly stop putting the kiss of death on my predictions, please - you've done it again!face 7
