|Thread: Future balsa supplies in UK|
I think you guys are missing a trick here. I have been buying lots old shed/loft/garage crates from facebook etc. I bin the I.C engine or motor but recycle the balsa. I have bought 47 so far.
|Thread: Covid Vax......club passports?.|
|Thread: Workshop Lighting|
Not exactly on topic BUT as anyone seen them "seriousreaders" adverts on TV? Have you seen the price! Are they that special,I bought a normal angle poise lamp and put a daylight bulb in it and its brill,way cheaper.
|Thread: Balsa Cores for Turbine Blades|
|Thread: Banggood servos|
Something similar, had bought 25kg JX brand servo`s from ebay and really pleased with them. This was from different vendors depending who had in stock and delivery time,all from China.
Then the last one sounded different when testing,then a close look showed it was not as good quality. Minor differences .So it was either a knock off most likely.
But the originals were very good for the money
|Thread: The Threat of Overpricing|
Well the way things are going now with jobs being lost etc,spare income will be less. Once the stuff does not get sold perhaps we will see prices fall?
|Thread: Balsa Cores for Turbine Blades|
I think you guys are missing the point. Balsa is not used in the construction of the blades. The balsa is burned to power the Chinese factories that make them. Then me buy the wind turbines to save the planet,the same turbines that spend more time not spinning than spinning in the UK, well at least the ones near me.
|Thread: Modelflying.co.uk platform migration plans, a 'heads-up' for everyone|
|Thread: Lone flying during Lockdown|
This is where all this gets stupid. if I am in the park by myself OR distancing , flying,walking,running,golfing or picking my nose ,WHY should me DRIVING there in my car ALONE be a issue. Too many stupid rules set by NEW "covid experts" or "advisors" now making a living out of covid. This is why covid rules will be around for many years after covid does decline. The sooner people start to realise this the better. I am 60 so not young and tip top condition BUT this virus does not scare me. I wear a mask to protect others "fears" .
One last note, my friend has been put on forced furlow again because he as a breathing complaint. Yet his wife works in a care home and daughter in a hospital. He is in more danger at home! He is not allowed to stay with someone else!!!! If he wanted to ,which he does not.
To many stupid rules. Latest one today, free data for youngsters so they will stay home on phones.Good luck with that.
|Thread: Flying through covid !|
Its like Peter`s mention of the 101 neighbour. She needs to have contact to get by. So precautions must be taken BUT needs people close to help.
It was said here that a family member has had covid 19 and had a nasty cough BUT that would be much worse for a 70 year old, yes so would the flu or such like.
The vast vast vast majority who get Covid have minor symptoms. We need to take care of the old and weak etc BUT get on with life. The way things are going no one will be able to afford any hobbies or pastimes soon.
All the rules and regs ARE NOT consistent. This will never go away, what are we all doing, waiting for a vaccine,good luck with that.
Look out for the next great depression because that's very likely.
Been put off using shapeways because of being in the US.
Just read that shapeways has a branch in the Nederlands, so should be less shipping and no duties.
As anyone used this or have info please?
|Thread: Modern domestic heating thermostats|
The stat on my valent is a Honeywell and although many functions is easy to programme without the manual even,apx 3 years old.
My parners on the other hand is a nightmare,still newish. Must be down to make model I think?
|Thread: Get it off your chest.|
Everyone under 45 being a "PC correct/snow flake/lilly livered/save the plant/gender correct/etc/etc" woss.
|Thread: And so it begins............|
See this also and thought here we go again. Remember using birds of prey to down drones? these drones are a worry of damaging jets, what about the birds then????
Then there was the autonomous delivery buggies being trialed, yeah right,they are not going to be vandelised or robbed are they for the goods.
More rubbish to waste money on doing studies.
Knife crime can not get sorted yet want to imprison yobs with offensive dogs. The list goes on.

|Thread: USB (rc date cable) not recognised|
Thanks for the link. I have done pretty much all of that already. The only difference that I can see the driver. the radio is not the same as mine though. I will try that different driver and see what occurs.
Trying to use the data/programme USB cable for a Flysky radio. It does not seem to work,keep getting "usb device malfunctioned" "not recognised" and error 43?.
I am pretty sure it not the radio or lead. I tried a different lead and still the same.
The driver is CP 2012 siliconlabs. When th cable does show on device manager there is a exclamation mark,so a prob is present. When I do update driver it says the latest is running.
Looked at a few places for help with no luck, the last said to uninstall all the usb devices then reinstall. Did that and my wireless mouse would not auto install like always!
any ideas anyone?
|Thread: 3 way radio switch.|
Seen vids where a 2 way switch was replaced with a 3 way. Just needed 2 equally rated resistors added.
Can this be done to replace a rotary knob? will never have need for rotaries.
|Thread: Problems with a supplier|
I know it might vary from CC to CC but I had a issue with a company saying they had sent me the item,then they said that it was a mistake had not been sent and was sent that morning,then that did not turn up!
My purchase was apx £30 and Barclaycard was very helpful. asked the details of vendor,did a check on them while on the phone, see that trustpilot had a few bad reports on them!!!
They refunded my money with proviso if it arrives the money will be deducted again.
