Thread: Is it a record
28/07/2017 13:59:07

Just to add some balance here, despite me being one of the contributors on this morning's thread (and still of the opinion of excessive moderation here) I PM'd Pete this morning and to his credit he replied quickly and it was a very thought out, comprehensive and positive reply thumbs up I have confidence that the topic will be discussed by the management team, here's hoping for a change.

As an aside, I bet a friend this morning's thread would be killed by 9, I was only out by 14 minutes laugh

Thread: gagged

I also agree with TWS too, to a degree, but the over moderation has been going on for years and goes much further than the recent Traplet threads.

Interestingly I've had a PM from someone who doesn't want to post on the thread but agrees with the posts above. It seems a few of us share the same view.

No, it isn't right. I've been censored before simply because I was outspoken enough and they didn't agree with me. I've had tens of thousands of posts on dozens of forums without issue.

Far too over zealous here.

edited to add: it would be great if this thread could be left open for SENSIBLE discussion with a view to improving moderating rather than it being silentlt removed.

Keiran, I'm still not clear why you're grinding this particular axe?

They're not in it for commercial gain ergo not commercial therefore allowed.

If an aerial view of an accident site could help to identify the sequence of events and what happened (and so helping to prevent future ones) why would you have an issue with it?

Thread: Redundancy in larger models?

I did, smart switches. Probably the result of not reading the full thread.............

I think we have a duty of care with big models to ensure that everyone and everything we fly near is safe. IMHO a 20kg Spit with just one battery should not be flown, and these days falls under the remit of the CAA / LMA.

I agree with Andy and take a similar approach of multiple batteries and smart switches to minimise risk, I have a power distribution board in my biggest. For the scratchbuilders among us we invest too much work in big models to lose them due to an avoidable failure.

Looks like it needed some stabilisation, it was all over the place.

To be fair he's not as young as he was, reaction times tend to increase with age. Let's not give him a hard time just because of his advancing years.

Could we not have a bit more variety please.

Sure MaxG, build a model and come to an event, then feel qualified to comment.

It’s great to know that building unique models, travelling 7 hours, then taking time out from flying to take pictures is so appreciated.
