Keenly watching to see it come together Jim. I'm also pleased you mentioned making plans and parts available since having now flown the original 60" model, I definitely want a bigger one too.
Keep up the good work!

|Thread: Advice re choosing a Spektrum receiver|
It may be that you can find a spektrum set-up for that model to download. This is available with the Visionaire and as it comes all fitted out, everything is in the right sense. You can probably find a Youtube showing the AR6335 set-up. It's a bit like setting an ESC - needs concentration or you loose your place in the process. In this case, you watch flashing coloured led's rather than listen to beeps!
I'm sure you will get many views and opinions on this so I will state that the following points are just my opinions:
Yes the AR6335 has standard servo connectors and requires no adaptors. I have one in a Visionaire and it does ease flying in very windy conditions. However, programming the gains and directions is quite a faff and there is much room for user error.
I would not bother with AS3X myself and just go for a simple standard receiver. If you are considering the AR400, which is fine, I assume that this is not a particularly complex model so best keep it simple.

Well you did ask John!
I don't think you could fly the 'A' that slowly without multiple stalls? When I said 15 mins, that obviously allows time for the obligatory pre-flight safety checks.
It seems a shame that you have got into this situation Airpaddler, there is a lot to be gained from being part of a club.
It's taken me a lifetime to realise that sometimes it is best to just back down and get on with life. So....... if it's a "good little club", why don't you just comply then enjoy being part of it? Anyone with the basic skills, and it sounds like you have those, can pass an 'A' test in about 15 minutes plus a night of reading the BMFA handbook - then fly whenever you want and enjoy the fun of being in the club.
What's to loose?
|Thread: fitting hinges|
I think the trick is to apply a layer of vaseline to the hinge pin before inserting into the slot. This is a bit fiddly but can be done by using a cocktail stick or similar to apply the vaseline (or grease)
It's all about.................timing!

|Thread: Ar 610 rx|
I think you'll find that the 610 doesn't have the option for preset failsafe. It is a bit of a minefield trying to find out the various options, and some of the data sheets don't reflect reality.
In fact, the Smartsafe and hold last position are the same on AR610, you can only control throttle channel and Smartsafe holds your last position on the other channels

|Thread: Drones and the law - item on R4, 8th March 2016|
And I've complained to BBC R4 this morning about Melvyn Bragg! How can it be acceptable to be continually clearing your throat on air? As a working class git myself, it may simply be that I don't understand that intellectuals have such bad manners because they are so clever. Complete waste of an email but makes me feel better, so many potentially good programmes ruined by the 'celebrities'.
|Thread: Droning on...So What's Your Answer ??|
Jon, I assume you have rules to prevent fixed wing and multirotor flying simultaneously from the same strip?

Excellent work Chris - learning lots here.

The tree stepped out in front of the car? Well that's what the trees at our patch do.
|Thread: Decision Time Part 1|
Thanks for asking the question PatMc, please let us know how you get on.
MattyB - presumably the front pages of that thread are the most up to date and relevant information available and there is no need to sift through the whole thread?
|Thread: Finish for plastic cowlings|
I think that if it's for an electric model, you can use anything you like. If it's IC, I have yet to find anything that survives the test of time!
