|Thread: Jim Davis Lancaster|
Hello Alexander, thanks for reviving one of my favourite threads, for me it was a satisfying adventure!
I'm also glad that I documented my original question and progress from May-July 2012 as some months later I was listening to a guy in a shop claiming to have found the wherabouts of Jim's Lanc himself.
You really can't believe the cheek some people!
Back in 2012 I found some info on the RCMF forum about Goosedale's closure and fate of the models, however I can't find the page now to link to.
You could try contacting SFO Museum, their contact details are on page one of this thread.
|Thread: Members Map|
Hi Robert, thanks for your interesting question.
Sorry, I missed one of your points:

Agreed, for security it was recommended that the members placed their pin in the general area so as not to make them a target for theft. All pins were manually added by the forum members and was not automated or created from harvested data. It's important that participation is down to each person to decide.
Would be nice to open the map back up if I can find a solution to the editing access problem
Thanks for the suggestion eflightray but the RCGroups Map is powered by Taboola and is not a free service.
It also doesn't allow users to make submissions to the map for acceptance by a moderator, it only maps the geo-locations of the internet ISP you are connected to and by nature is not very accurate.
---REPOST DUE TO FONT SIZE ISSUES ABOVE---
I still have the original map data, however I'm struggling to find a mapping service that would work for our purposes at no cost.
For now all I have is this link where the data was moved to:
My problem is that Google only seem to give read only or full edit access.
|Thread: Hi from the Netherlands|
Welcome to the RCM&E forum playtime222

|Thread: Retired, Returned, Looking for a club near Telford|
Nice to know, thanks.
I'm currently flying from Chase MAC as the field is very open and more suitable for large aicraft that need a longer strip.
Hi Dunkelmann, did you find a club?
|Thread: Dave Burton (BEB)|
I opened my newly delivered RCM&E just now and was very shocked to read the news about Dave's passing. I felt compelled to log in to the forum immediately as he was such a big part of its fabric, not to mention the countless hours he has spent helping us all.
It was always a pleasure to see him whenever our paths crossed at Greenacres and the Nats.
Great job with the book Chris, it will bring some comfort to his family knowing that we appreciated his presence online, in print and in person.
Class of 2014 (Greenacres)
|Thread: Famous model flyers|
Red Bull Air Race or general aviation fans would probably know the names Nigel Huxtable (Left) and Nigel Lamb (Right), I know that they both fly RC (prop & jet) now and again from the airfields they work from.
|Thread: Nexus Modelling Supplies|
Couldn't agree more Geoff, I've purchased from Nexus a number of times online and at shows.
Highly recommended from me.
|Thread: Gatwick drone incident|
Having only just viewed the footage of the quad flying over Gatwick during daylight, a few things strike me:
10pm news says that another fly-by has been witnessed during the last hour
I do hope the perpetrator(s) are caught.
Wonderful to see, thanks Josip.
|Thread: RCFerret - online websearch tool|
Thanks Darren, just downloaded it
Thanks for the update Darren, it's a shame I'm only on Apple.
The website is still as useful as ever, thanks for your work in developing and hosting it.
|Thread: Why the saddening blow to my fms mustang?|
It's always Prawn Cocktail crisps on the buffet.
I guess some people have different preferences.
|Thread: Brushless upgrade super cub s|
Back in 2014 I built a plywood firewall box, which mounted the motor perfectly for the cowl, so no spacers needed.
These days I would 3D print a mount, amazing how much the hobby progresses in such a short space of time!
|Thread: Scammer Epic Fail|
I put a wanted advert on the BMFA Classifieds to obtain spare parts for my MXS-R, however I couldn't believe that for a second time somebody would send me my own photo's telling me it was theirs to sell (same thing happened in Feb 2016).
I called Graham Goodman on his mobile: 07520 624166 and was amazed he answered, unfortunately the signal was too bad to hold a conversation. He was well spoken with a air of confident maturity about him, can't think why he hasn't text me back!
It's a cautionary tale, buyers and sellers beware!
|Thread: TJ's Hobbies|
