No apology needed Josip, I added the link to try and keep us all together.
|Thread: Where are we with 3D printers now?|
Purchased mine from here: Technology Outlet
Ready built, UK company, tech support provided and a 1 year warranty.
I'm finding best results are produced from Cura at the moment when slicing your model into layer GCode.

|Thread: He was a great pilot|
Terrible news and also reported in this thread:
|Thread: Johannes Arch dead|
Just learned about this from a Facebook post via Nigel Huxtable (Red Bull Breitling Team).
Red Bull said in a statement that the Austrian pilot died in a helicopter crash in the Alps.
The 48-year-old was flying back from a mountain hut in the Grossglockner area of Carinthia, in eastern Austria, when his helicopter struck a cliff late Thursday. A passenger was also seriously injured.
This is Hannes last Facebook post, only a few hours before the fateful journey.

|Thread: Model shop - Al's Hobbies|
Truly amazing Essjay to be able to navigate round the shop with just your mouse to move yourself around.

I managed to make the pilgrimage to this shop earlier this year and took this photo.
It's well worth going out of your way to pay a visit, I was made to feel very welcome by Ali Snr, he even made me a coffee (a first for me in a model shop!). I was happy to find a well stocked traditional model shop, full of new and more traditional models, as well as few bargains tucked away at the back. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff, I look forward to visiting again.
For anyone interested in competition history, some of Ali Jnr's trophies are in there too in a few cabinets (must be at least 100 cups and medals).
A real Aladin's cave!
|Thread: Harrier Jump Jet- The aeromodelling Holy Grail !!!!|
Awesome project and fantastic early results by look of things, well done Tony!
I would image there are some limitations as to how fast each EDF unit can speed up and slow down to maintain the hover. Looking forward to seeing how this progresses.
|Thread: RIP AA Barry|
Sorry to learn that news, amazing contributions to the forum.
|Thread: Greenacres 2016 Fly-ins|
See you all in August then
Let's hope he meant the weather and not one of my Li-Po's
|Thread: Greenacres July 2016 Photos|
Great to see, I made it on Saturday and Sunday, shame about the wind putting so many off flying.
Will be back to Greenacres in August, see you there!
|Thread: BIXLER PROBLEM|
Heat from an ESC is not that unusual, however before you fix that you need to find out why the battery and receiver are getting hot, this should not be the case!
A hot (and possibly puffed) battery suggests you are discharging the cells too rapidly.
|Thread: Sourcing quality tuned pipes|
I would second iqon's suggestion of Weston UK.

|Thread: Strobe and landing lights using PICAXE|
Very interesting Allan, I like it a lot.
|Thread: Navigation LED Lights with Beacon & Strobe Effect (Arduino)|
I haven't had any time to progress this little project myself so far, I was hoping a few people might pick up the baton and run with it.
We do need a circuit diagram for those of us who want to run higher power LED's and we need somebody to work on the original code I posted so that the lights can be controlled from the transmitter.
I have seen some solution examples online when originally Googling around the web.
|Thread: Acro Wot mk2 artf electric advice plz|

|Thread: Searching for clubs|
Hi Ben, I'm fairly local to you.
I will drop you a PM.
|Thread: Caption time again!|
It keeps pecking the ground on landing? Must be because it's a Seagull model!
