|Thread: What's your rate limiting step?|
After glassing : fill sand spray / fill sand spray / fill sand spray....zzzzZZzz
|Thread: 104 inch B-17 Identification|
For sure,dual TX etc is very belt and braces, but the common points of failure are all in the air (from BMFA's own stats I think) and it's usually the battery or switch that'll go first - the cheapest components typically.
|Thread: Wanted...Rcmw mags|
Phil - this may also help. Mr Cooke said he can make the instructions into PDF format for you, but there was more info on his build thread anyway.
Crikey, it's all happening here this morning. Please see your plus.com email address for a word file

Hi Phil - if you get stuck I can bring my copy of the mag in April if you're going to the first meet?
|Thread: Gone,but not forgotten kit mfg|
Brilliant, where I flew for many of my teenage years I flew Mr Norris' (of Melksham Models) Chipahawk for a few years as a loaner, lovely aircraft.
Seeing Micro Mold there reminded me of the old Avenger, as seen here on the revered bible itself :
I did have an original plan of said aircraft back as a yoof, but alas it was destroyed when mice got into the plan store and ate the lot of them. I have since re-created the plan in CAD from memory (I studied it often as a wee lad) and from the 3-view within the holy pages, but would dearly like an original again if anyone has one knocking about.
|Thread: I.H. Brown|
Similar to the one in the RCG link you posted....
Whether it was drawn by Brown or not, the Outerzone fantrainer looks remarkably similar. +1 for drawing your own though, maybe use the outerzone version as a starting point.

|Thread: D40 Flying Wing - by me not Joe Manors|
What wing section was the D40 Pete? Looks interesting, always good to re-use and re-purpose
|Thread: PSSA Gliding Events 2019|
One month to go guys - get those airframes checked over, and cycle-up the batteries
Doc - S isn't a protocol, it just shows that those receivers have stability built in - i.e. gyros. You can then tune them to your aircraft from a FRSky transmitter or via a cable on the ground. They still use the X protocol for controls and telemetry.
The paragraph on protocols is spot on, however. I use a FRsky X12s on non-eu firmware so I can talk to the raft of older D type receivers I still have in smaller aircraft.
Ah, Looks like we've crossed over Pete

|Thread: Power Safe for any receiver|
Chris - any closer to releasing these at all? I'm at a point now that I could do with a couple for projects nearing completion
Well that's a pretty little thing, great work and I echo the above comments on hoping for a plan in the future.
|Thread: Aldi Bench Drill|
I've had the centre pulley seize on mine recently - low quality grease / cold weather meant that it went solid and the motor couldn't even turn it. Strip the belts off, pull pulley straight up to remove, clean then re-grease, all was fine again.
Just a heads up for maintenance. I've used mine maybe a dozen times in two years from new, so something to look for next time you have the belts off and changing speed.
|Thread: Installing servos in confined space|
I designed and print my own low-profile servo mounts in "carbon fibre infused" PLA plastic. Work a treat!
|Thread: PSSA pre-season get together - RAF Cosford - The Return!|
|Yep, now it has electricity and running water! :D|
I thought he was advertising his rates
|It looks like someone forgot the cockpit until the last 5 minutes of putting it together. Just awful.|
Glad we've got a few attending now.
