Mind you club website seems to be visited by only eight to date (12 months) despite several reminders in various format. (Horses and water come to mind!)

Is that for the website as a whole? Or a specific forum section or something on it? Our club website stats show around 40 unique visitors a day... Have you given yours an obscure URL and taken steps to hide it from the search engines?

That was for the members section.

Thread: My Spitfire flight
13/08/2015 15:03:26

It wasn't me that put it there! Although the one I flew (In process of house move so will need to lay hands on my log book) came a cropper a few months later . I understand much of the parts were recycled to build a another Mk IX.

Excellent . Very envious. I did something similar in South Africa some 15 years ago.

Thread: Chriss Foss Wot 4 ARTF Wing Bolt Size?
10/08/2015 11:22:35

Its a "funny" thread (I have had the same conversation with both my LMS and Ripmax!!)

I took out the captive nuts that were in the model and replaced them with ones that would take M6 plastic wing joiner bolts (so that I didn't have to keep searching for my screwdriver down at the field)

Kit, I would very much like a copy of your plan too. I have the Flair stearman sitting in a box ready to be built. I had been scratching my head with setting up some form of Jury rig system.

Thread: Horizon Hobby

That is such a shame. I understand from my local model shop that the service, stock levels and product range has been severely curtailed since the main UK operations was moved over to be run in Germany.

I have up to now bought products from Horizon Hobbies happy (and confident) in the knowledge that even though they tended to be a bit more expensive the back-up was there if needed. I very much hope that they get their act together over here.(I also write from recent experience and chalked it down to a minor blip )

Hello John, I don't have direct experience of the NGH 25 , however a club member has . He is on his third tank. Using a 15X10 at present but will be going for a bigger prop once its run in well. It has quite a bark and he fashioned an insert (simiar to the ones I use on my petrol 2 strokes - I 'm experimenting with a DLE 35 RA with one of these http://www.troybuiltmodels.com/items/TBMDLE20SILENCER.html. I understand that there is a seller in the UK but not sure who that is)

Jez very sorry to hear about your accident . I wish you a very speedy recovery. Your build threads have been a real inspiration so on a very selfish note. Get better soon!

I have to hold my hands up to having had the H9 35% Extra - with a twin 100cc . I converted this to electric (different type of noise !) . Ended up having to buy a three blade prop . Batteries were a bit expensive and I sold it on.

One of the club's I attend has a number of members that fly petrol (although mutual agreed to limit this to approx 50cc - I fly a geared 62 on a scale WW1 model which just pootles about). Following a visit by the EHO who informed us that regardless of our "noise" policy (although it would be taken into account if an issue arose) the councils findings would be based on perceived noise issue at nearest point of nuisance (eg nearest house). So no throttle jockeys!

Bob/Area 51. I have a similar issue at all three clubs of which I'm a member  . I'd hate to be responsible for causing any issues and will try and find the most effective solution.

On the two stroke petrols , I've tended to go for the K&B's with inserts (it does drop the top end by a couple of hundred revs - but does give a much "softer " output ) . Looks like a call to Johnor Nigel at TJD's might be in the offing!

Looking forward to using it. We have had noise problems at our site so will be looking to see how I can fit a silencer on it. (I have one left over from an old Laser 180 - pretty much the only bit that survived a rapid vertical descent into the only bit of rock on our field)

29/07/2015 00:42:49

Excellent Bob. I bought the 38 also to fit into the Acro Wot XL and hopefully will get started this weekend.Look forward to reading your experience with the NGH (are you intending to silence this?)

Flight1 I have sent you a PM re silencer for the NGH 38

Having checked with my bank , it would have been cheaper to have paid HK's fee for using my own banking system . I now know for the future.
