Thread: New ipad
18/09/2020 15:17:31

Wow, how is this achieved Richard. Has it some thing to do with blue tooth, as I know next to nothing about Bluetooth lol. Thanks

18/09/2020 12:48:04

Thank Shaun. Got it, well explained. Take care

18/09/2020 11:54:18

Thanks Frank. Does this also apply to other forums that I use ? It's an age thing lol. Cheers

18/09/2020 11:15:44

Do I have to install this forum, or rejoin when I use my not yet arrived new iPad. Is there a correct procedure ? Thanks

Thread: Aerotowing Large Scale Gliders
18/09/2020 11:12:58

Keep em coming Cliff. Great video I enjoyed it. Quite some unseen skills by pilots taking off and landing in bad cross winds as indicated by wind sock. Cheers

Thread: Got away with it!
10/09/2020 12:56:22

I agree with Geoff. I fly in Summer a venerable Super Scorpion. It must be directly into wind on take off, also normal practice of opening the throttle slowly must be discarded. Half to thee quarter throttle ( model being held back) is the order of the day to get some wind to operate the rudder. Any slight deviation and I am running around. LoL

Thread: To stabilise or not to stabilise - the gyro question
08/09/2020 23:20:59

Hi Tony, cheating ? not at all. If you can utilise any thing to get a less stress full flight,go for it. Using flaps etc to I've better lift and slower landing speeds is not cheating. Using a gyro you can fly in a strong cross wind but without it you may have to go home without a flight. We have a run way that always has a cross wind. Taking off and landing always gives trouble, but ok once airborne. Always thought a gyro would come in handy in these conditions.

Thread: Photo rotation problem persists
07/09/2020 20:11:34

I use another non modelling forum. This problem is the same on this non modelling forum. I always use an iPad to take and upload pictures. As mentioned above,by using iPad in landscape mode with button on rhs the orientation is correct always.

Thread: redundant at 62!
05/09/2020 18:50:01

Employers these days are like insurance firms, they will try all ways and tricks to get out of thier responsibilities. Cheers

05/09/2020 14:20:37

I'm, afraid these days employees are just a number, and loyalty only works one way. If they can get a robot or a machine to do the work they would get rid of you in seconds even if you had worked there for ages. A book I can recommend, "The ragged trousered philanthropist" one part was even banned years ago as it give the working class too many secrets as to how employers kept the means of production to themselves. Hope things turn up better for you.

Thread: Drones/multirotors
02/09/2020 20:06:39

Hi all, is it me or am I the only one that thinks that the multirotor fad is on the wane. If so would it be down to the new rulings or just gone out of fashion. I used to see at least three or four being flown in local parks by youngsters, but not any more. It's possible that Covid has also had an effect on these fliers.

Great video supplemented by some nice smooth flying. Keep it up Bjarne, top quality stuff as usual. Cheers

Thread: LMC Gnatty
30/08/2020 21:37:25

Many years ago we had a club member who would always build a model that was far in advanced of his flying skills at the time. He either crashed or would ask another member to fly it. He turned up one day with a Gnatty. Egged on by fellow club members who should have known better he decided to fly it himself. He exelled himself and after a great landing announced "this was the best trainer he ever had".

Thread: Sunrise v.2, New and improved
30/08/2020 20:37:31

It surely does that. If you had waited a bit longer you might have had sun light glinting off the models wings. But then it wouldn,t be sunrise.

Thread: Removable u/c
30/08/2020 16:16:18

Thanks both. At the moment I have I have nothing suitable for this idea. Soon I will be building Sid King,s Novice e, and if it it an easy mod may think about it on this model during the build. Do Bixlers have ply plate to incorparate the u/c clamp screws, or is it totally different ?

30/08/2020 14:38:44

Hi all. I am told one of the Bixler models has an u/ c that can be used as such or removed. This seems good idea for use on differing runways such as Tarmac, grass etc. Any one have any ideas of how to install this in a model other than a foamy.? The long grass on our pitch does cause problems with Rog sometimes.

Thread: Why RC? Why not FF?
29/08/2020 14:47:15

Wow, I did not expect those pics, things really have moved on. Your comparisons seem spot on FF. Pictures are one good way of changing perceptions, perhaps a vid. of these models inflight too ? Thanks

29/08/2020 13:51:07

Hi FFPete, I love all things model flying. Any pictures of the modern up to date models you speak of ? Non cabin type models I presume. Cheers

Thread: Recommendation
28/08/2020 20:04:48

I have a new laptop os Windows 10. Can any one recommend a sim that runs on this and would not break the bank. What interface would I require between Tx and laptop. Gearing up for the Winter lol.
