Dave, with all due respect, 20% of your stock going pear shaped after 6 flights does not speak volumes for value or quality.

Nigel, I only paid £12.00 for each pair of batteries, including P&P. They were on FleaBay at a not to be missed price. £48 for 8 batteries seems quite reasonable to me. Floureon 3S 2200s are still available on Ebay at £22.99 including P&P.

I have got 3 and 4 cell. 2 years ago I bought 10, 3 cell 2200's. 2 went puffy after about 6 cycles and the rest are still going strong. I think they are great value for the price but will not last long if you leave the throttle fully open for too long. And you get a free battery strap as well. Easter looks great weather wise down here in the South East. Happy Flying.

"The fees have gone up, tough, everything has, fuel, food, insurance. This is called Inflation. 12% is less than real inflation at the moment."
What planet are you on? 12% is not anywhere near the inflation rate.
£2.00 increase is a fair rise and I would not expect that to be a problem within our club.

Thread: Computer help required
27/03/2013 16:24:56

If you are brave, it is possible to go into the registry files and find all reference to the unwanted software and delete it. BE WARNED though. Make a backup of your registry first, just in case something goes wrong. Good luck.

Anti virus software? Update? Just stopped working? ..Get asked to sort out friend's (PC) problems once or twice a month? Sorry, but I just don't know what you are talking about. I got a Mac!!

Edited By Piers Bowlan on 24/03/2013 14:34:24

I meant different friends, not the same friend. What or who is Mac anyway dont know

24/03/2013 00:27:13

There are lots of reasons why IE would stop working. Sometimes problems ocure when you have installed an update. You might have got a virus from an email. The 2 easiest things to try is to check your anti virus software is up to date and then use system restore to install from an earlier date. If you don't know how to do this then seek advise from a pal who lives near you and could pop round to help. I have been tinkering with PC's since the 80's and I get asked to sort out friends problems at least once or twice a month. Good luck and I hope you manage to sort the problem.

Thread: Pull Pull Rudder Cable
25/02/2013 23:13:52

For the crimps I use the brass grommets from old servos. They allow you to thread the cable back through to create a loop, flatten real easy and with an extra gentle squash using the cutting part of pliers, does the trick. If you flatten gently first, you can even tighten the cable to get the tension correct.

Thread: What type of aircraft do you fly the most?
20/02/2013 19:56:55

Depends on the weather. If windy say up to about 20mph, then I am quite happy flying my Wot 4 foamie or MX2. Nice sunny day then I fly Blaze glider in between my Carbon Yak54 and for a bit of speed and fun then it’s my Stryker. BBQ day, then out comes my Junior 60 with IC 25 in her. Great fun is to take my Wildthing up the slope for some 25 to 45 mph thrills. I have still to fly an early 80's Pattern ship and an Aggressor 240 with Moki 210 up front. I have found that I am getting very lazy, as IC motors are a lot of trouble setting up and all the additional items required. I find electric is clean and easy to transport about. I nearly forgot, I also have a Blade 400 3d helicopter, waiting my attention. In reality almost anything will do, that my pocket can afford. Lately with the weather being so, how can I politely put it, inclement, I have bought a small quadcopter and play with that in doors.>>

Thread: Should we be licenced
10/02/2013 22:56:14

I agree with a lot of the points already raised. Why stir up a hornets nest? The Government would be delighted to take more money from you, if you so wish. The flyer who does not have insurance, is not going to be bothered about where or who he upsets. If you count the number of serious accidents occurring in our hobby, it is a very small, unfortunate, but extremely low number, per numbers of people in it.

>Let us all keep enjoying our great hobby as it is.>
