This means that the overall scoreboard now looks like this;

1 0 Roos Racers rk295ELITE 463
2 0 GASTON Formula Chris McG 454
3 +5 Pitts Specials john stones 429

12 0 Essex Racing Tony Clark 312
13 -2 Torque of the devil Stu 312
14 -1 teewrex John Tee 298
15 -1 Team Charles Picd Charles Pic 297

No change then for the top 2. John Stones' win today moves him up 5 places to 3rd, and Kev's 3rd place moves him up a place to 4th overall.

Iqon and Flyer move down 1 and 3 places respectively to 5th and 6th. Simon drops 4 places today to 10th. Gary's 8 place drop is not a real drop - he has joined the league since Bahrain, so the 8-place drop is just a statistical anomaly - as he didn't have a league position to move from!

Charles and John Tee continue at the foot of the table - their apparent 1 place drop each is just a result of Gary joining in 8th place.

Up next in 2 weeks is Azerbaijan (did I spell that correctly?) I think my team might need a 'tactical adjustment' before then!

OK folks... I'm back from a rather chilly and breezy afternoon's flying. I'm sure the Ch4 coverage will have finished long ago so without further ado let's see how we all scored today;

Top scorer today is John Stones with 170 points, with Chris 2nd only a point behind! Kev completes the top 3 today with 158 points. well done to all of you.

12/04/2019 20:14:00

Right then, once again it's time for my reminder;

Don't forget your predictions!

And it's an early start as we're in China with qualifying tomorrow at 7am UK time and the race at 7:10am on Sunday. Many thought Ferrari would have the upper hand again, but Bottas leads the P2 times just ahead of Vettel with Verstappen in third.

Channel 4 coverage is around lunchtime on Saturday and 3pm on Sunday, so I'll delay posting the results until after the Ch4 coverage has concluded.

Two squares near the middle of our runway are;

closet.views.having

boat.issue.smashes

And our pegboard is at prime.sheets.flight

Two more appropriate ones on the strip and in the pits are;

stole.prop.edge

props.pitch.crush

I just had a look over in Canada where my daughter is at the moment. The squares there mostly have much longer words! Like calculator and corporations, and a nearby street-corner has purified.backwards.lecturers - not sure if that's appropraite or not for a university city!

So, how does it look now in the overall table with two races completed?

Robin remains in top place on 326 points. Chris moves up 5 places today to take second on 285 and Flyer moves up 2 places to 3rd on 284.

Iqon slips a place to 4th while Kev moves up 1 to 5th. Simon suffers a 4-place drop to 6th and Pete moves up 2 to 7th. John S Stays put in 8th while I suffer a 5-place drop to 9th. Bondaero, Stu and Tony remain unchanged in 10th, 11th & 12th respectively whilst at the foot of the table John Tee and Charles swap places.

Next up is China in 2 weeks, and I guess another early start after the rather civilised timing of today's race!

Can Ferrari get their ducks lined up in a row next time? Great shame for Charles Leclerc today. But I was amused by Nico Rosberg's comment on the Sky commentary towards the end of the race. I don't remember his exact words, but basically saying that Vettel was continuing this season the same way he'd ended the last one, by mucking everything up...

It looks like the race on Channel4 is coming towards the end, so time to start getting the results together...

Top scorer today was Chris with 176 points. Only five points behind Chris was Flyer and 3rd place, on 161 points, was Robin - with Pete and Kev snapping at his heels!

Thread: Is this a genuine HOBBYWING 60 Amp, or a knock off ?
29/03/2019 22:03:26

+ve input is at the top on Colin's ESC, -ve is at the top on Denis's.

So they're certainly different. But just a different generation, or something else?

OK everyone, pay attention! It's another weekend, and time for the Bahrain GP. So, the customary reminder;

Don't forget your predictions!

But what to predict?... And should we change our teams? The frist two practice sessions appear to show Ferrari in control. Maybe no surprise as the Bahrain circuit is much more like Barcelona than Melbourne was.

FP3 is tomorrow at noon followed by qualifying at 3pm UK-time. The race is at 4.10pm UK-time - and don't forget to put the clocks forward on Saturday night.

Thread: NEW POLL - Does your club have a safety officer, or is the emphasis on individual members to each be their own safety officer?
21/03/2019 20:40:21

Our club rules explicitly state that every member is to consider themselves a safety officer.

In any case, we can fly 7 days a week, and in the summer up to 8 hours a day. That would mean if we did have a nominated safety officer most of the time he wouldn't be present, or if he was it would - at 56 hours a week be rather more than a full-time job!

Thread: Does your club prohibit the use of after-market receivers?
20/03/2019 20:53:14

No ban at my club, and very few genuinely radio-related problems.

If anything, the most prone to failure radio - for us - seems to be genuine Skektrum. Very few of our club members use it, but if ever there is a radio problem it seems to be with one.

kc- I have been a btinternet customer in the past and my family have a number of btinternet email addresses that we continue to use.

In the past the email was still available after moving to another ISP. But then a few years ago they started to charge non-btinternet customers for continuing to use btinternet email. Initially it was a fairly nominal monthly charge (£1.60 springs to mind, though I'm not certain) but it has now increased to £7.50 a month. I have to pay that even though my current ISP is owned by BT...

One day I'll move us all onto other addresses, but for the moment my wife and one of my daughters use their btinternet address and no others.

Just wondering who "S" is? I recognise all the rest.

17/03/2019 16:48:56

ok - as a workaround for the moment... Here's a picture of the table!

capture.jpg

Ignore the highlighting on my entry!

Flying start for Robin with Roos Racers, heading our league with 165 points. Well done Robin - in the top 60 globally!

Simon scored 127 for 2nd place with Iqon scoring 123 for 3rd. The rest of us trail somewhere behind, and last season's winner seems to be giving us mortals a head-start with his score of 105. wink 2

Bahrain in two weeks and a more civilised hour of the day to watch in the UK! Unlimited team changes until then - I think I'm going to go and tweak mine now! (And also find a better way to post the league table!)

17/03/2019 16:27:40

It's now just after 4pm and the Channel 4 folks should have reached the end of their coverage, so here is the first set of results for 2019 in the Modelflying Forumites league.


Or at least I would show the results if the "Paste from Word" functionality hadn't broken... 3 different browsers on 2 PCs - same result. "Press Ctrl+V to paste. Your browser doesn‘t support pasting with the toolbar button or context menu option" Bear with me...

16/03/2019 16:21:40

Charles, the channel 4 qualifying coverage was due to finish at 1:30pm, so I personally see no problem in discussing it now. Other viewpoints are welcome!

But yes, I was also surprised that we just seem to have more or less picked up where we left off last season. Ferrari were said to have the edge, but it doesn't look that way - at least not at Melbourne! The Melbourne circuit is a bit different to Barcelona where all the winter test sessions were held, so who knows how the teams will compare elsewhere.

Good to see Lando Norris qualifying 8th in the McLaren, Sainz could also have been in the top 10 if he hadn't been held up in Q1 when Kubica tried to take lumps out of the scenery with his Williams.

Alarm clock set for tomorrow morning!

16/03/2019 10:30:16

Hi Chris - welcome aboard!

I had a bit of a near miss - with my predictions... Despite reminding you all to do them, I almost forgot to do mine. embarrassed

Got them done at 5:55 with 5 mins to spare!
