Thread: Interesting slo-mo vid
04/08/2014 09:30:41

Great video. Those Breitling Wingwalker models could easily be real, amazing.

Thanks for sharing.

Thread: Sea Fury - Sad sight
01/08/2014 18:28:13

Not in a sadistic way at all but I could watch videos like this over and over, absolutely world class flying and recovery.

Makes our dead-sticks look rather tame.

Leading edge aircraft, first class paint job. Absolutely world class, thanks for sharing.

Some cracking photographs and also some amazing models.

RAF Broadwell near me is now a Solar Farm!!!!

Thread: Large B-29 Display mishap - USA
11/07/2014 14:45:34

I'm actually a little shocked by that vid..........posted for all the right reasons Pete, members of our hobby need to see things like this if not for education alone.

I don't normally like to dwell on the "What could of happened" type scenarios but that was a bit close for comfort!!!

Thread: Panshanger aerodrome to close
11/07/2014 14:40:09

That is ridiculous news, such a shame.

I used to fly over it regularly and have operated from it. It is a beautiful little strip that will be a big miss.

Thread: Tin Hats Everyone!!!

Brilliant, as much as it is probably seen as being reckless or silly, every one of those people stood (Or jumping out of the way in fear!!! ha ) loved it and will talk about it for years.

I remember (and still do with my little boy sometimes and also at RIAT) standing on the fence at the end of 08 at Brize watching the VC-10s land. Now, there is a lot of threshold still available at that point but some occasionally appeared to be seeing how tall the fence was!

Good times = St Maarten regularly, Bad times = C-130 that unfortunately had its rear ramp down!

Thread: Best trainer plane for total beginner?

What an amazing forum! Thanks so much for your encouraging words of advice and support.

I would like to try a club, but Wormword Scrubs is a bit inaccessible for me, and I may go it alone, at first - with a Supercub which appears to be quite forgiving of a beginner!

In the future, if the bug does bite, I will certainly join a club if II can find one a bit closer to me .

Thanks again,


"IF" the bug bites??

Ha Ha, good luck with that in the future!! Have you got pockets deep enough and a garage big enough for your future collection!?

Good luck, you will be just fine. Start slow, research and then research again, practice practice and all will be ok, expect the unexpected and don't be too disappointed when you fly one into the ground.

Thread: Phoenix 2000

Thanks guys, will keep it stock but get some 1300mah batteries, cheers.

04/07/2014 20:32:00

Got my Phoenix 2000 today.

Have been reading up and cant decide what to do regarding the stock ESC etc...

I will be installing flaps and using 11.1v 2200mah 3S batteries, i have a spare 70A Esc that is not being used so should I install that rather than using the stock 30A?

Thread: You have to see this !
04/07/2014 20:24:40

Oh my, wow.

Thread: Hovering Hidiot

Sounds like John is going down the correct procedure on reporting this and fully agree with BEB's comments.

John, you mention photos but did anybody video it? If not, make sure somebody does next time. A photo paints a picture but a video makes the Sistine Chapels roof come to life.

Thread: What's the difference?
19/04/2014 12:35:37

Been looking at some literature regarding this and full size Airshows, although i fully appreciate you are looking more to the model side of things.

Display Line is defined as: "A line defining the closest a display aircraft should approach the Crowd Line"

Show Line is: "The line along which a performance is flown, usually but not always parallel to the crowd or runway. Distances involved are regulated by law.

Hope that helps in some way.

19/04/2014 11:44:06

My understandings were taken from Full Scale Airshow Displays so they may be lost in translation slightly in the model world.

19/04/2014 11:26:14

Not 100% sure but my understanding is:

Show Line: Where the aircraft are on static display.

Display Line: Where the aircraft displays takes place, beyond this line.

Flight Line: Where the aircraft are parked and maintained etc...but not on display.

Thread: Low wing aeroplanes - the differences
19/04/2014 11:19:10

The fundamental differences have been explained well i think and i agree with Peter that you will likely find not too much fuss at all. A little cautious maybe but no more so than setting up and trying out any new model i think.

I think (like i found) that your main problem will be actually choosing a suitable low winged model as the choices are endless. I ended up going for a Kyosho Calmato 60 Sport, was a superb transitional model.

Good luck.

Thread: Red Bull practice

Great stuff. I got tickets to Ascot on the 17th of August for my birthday so looking forward to that.

Thread: First flight in over forty years

Does it get any better than i don't think so.

Perfection, beautiful. Well done.
