|Thread: The demise of. ASP/SC|
I must be a lucky one too. Bought a venerable Super scorpion (built in th 70s) for a song. It had an MDS 32 up front. Starts first time Summer or Winter. Never cut on me, and it's so quiet people think it's electric lol. Club ic expert tells me it the larger size carbs that give the most trouble. Cheers
|Thread: Good news thread.|
A friend of mine knowing I am on medication sent me a birthday card wich said "have a drink on me". Inside was a tea bag lol. Cheers and thanks for the birthday greetings.
I am 81 today, the good news is that I am half hour younger than my twin brother lol. Cheers
|Thread: IT help required please|
ThanksPatmc, will do.
ThanksPatmc, will do.
Thanks all for your suggestions, as it happens slots all checked out ok, and in process of having drivers updated by a helpful ( as all you have been too) friend. Cheers
Thanks Jon, and Wingman, have not tried either suggestions, but will do so. Forgot the mantra " try the simple things first " lol. Will keep in touch. Cheers
Whoa, thanks for prompt replies. The faulty laptop is a Acer on Windows 7, the laptop that showed all the pics. is a Toshiba on Windows 10. Two slots on the Acer were tried but failed. As suggested we opened "my computer" but it failed to recognise the card, and no F drive showed up. Thanks
Hi all, my friend inserted his camera card into his lap top and nothing at all showed up. We put it into another laptop and all pics showed up. We were informed it could be a graphics card, or graphics driver. Is it possible to determine which one of these it is. Thanks
|Thread: CAA registration consulation|
I am of an age now that trying to make sense of all this is making me frustrated. The one thing I read some where in all this bumf was a mention of "age restriction" but I cannot find it again lol. We do not have to be reminded that most clubs have far more older members than younger members, that does not bode well. Having said that there are people driving cars who are over a hundred years old. Cheers
|Thread: U/C fixing|
If the model is a trainer, and the pilot is a learner he/she may benifit from using banded on u/c until landing procedure improves. Cheers
|Thread: Loss of trim due to moisture and temperature.|
Thanks for that Paul. You have a wonderful collection of engines too via your album.
Hi Paul, is that the original exhaust ? I have same engine but it's a 40. Would it run ok without an exhaust. Cheers
|Thread: Hi I'm Laura|
Hi Laura, welcome to the best flying forum around. Peter Miller is a renowned model plane designer, builder and flier. "The madhouse"is just an expression of all the great building and flying queries etc that goes on with this very freindly forum lol. The Chit chat section is also very informative on all subjects. Cheers
|Thread: Disposing of modelling goods?|
Hi Stephen, what part of the world are you.? You have no profile so I cannot PM you. Sorry
I have found it is quite difficult to pass on models even if the are given away. We keep stuff for a while and if it's still thereafter some time I,m afraid it's the skip. Cheers. Ps I have tried to give away a fully built and 99% Solartex covered EAA bipe to no avail.
|Thread: 35 MHz RX|
Re crystals of 35mhz, I think you should have a matching pair for Tx and Rx. I have just purchased a synthasized Rx from a kind forum member, think this is the way to go as crystals are getting hard to find. Th OP mentioned "redundancy" but I believe there many fliers still on 35mhz for one reason or the other. Cheers
|Thread: Square Rx 4.8v batts.|
Thanks lads for all suggestions sorted. Nice one Simon, will keep that tip in mind.
Hi all, I am struggling to fit a normal flat shapedRx battery in my Winter build. I have looked at square 2x1x1 inch alternatives that might help. Wondered if this size is the smallest available (1'500ma) . I have seen on this forum pics of incredible narrow fuselages and wondered how they managed to shoehorn every thing in lol. Cheers
|Thread: Paypal Charges - how are they calculated?|
Hi, slightly off topic (sorry) pay pal have asked me to verify my account after ten years of use. Has any one had this problem ? and I hope it's not a scam. Cheers
