Thread: Things that have dropped off in flight

The airframe shock caused by Action Man exiting resulted in the battery hatch following suit. Both were recovered.

Thread: The big question, WHEN

I absolutely accept the risk of transmission in close contact unavoidable situations but reading the latest guidelines I consider a short trip to my local flying site a damm site safer than a supermarket shopping trip and a whole lot better for my mental health and wellbeing

Hi Piers.

Big one is the Precedent 1/3 built from the kit with an ASP 120 twin FS.

Baby brother has an OS 3O FS, It was an EBay buy about 7 years ago but I'm not sure about it's origin but it flew very well. I think the power is very scale.

It was a useful exercise as I had a struggle to reaquaint models with their correct wing tubes etc. They all got a clean .

As promised.

I'll be deep cleaning my Shed next week so I thought, for posterity, I'd record the event by assembling all my inventory in the garden for a photo call

I'll post a picture next week but thought I'd get the ball rolling.

It'd be great to see what you all have hidden away.

Thread: Anyone still using a balsa stripper?
17/04/2020 22:39:10

Still use a Slec.

Found a great alternative use for it to slice strips of 8mm insulation for my Campervan floor. Had to make lots of various sizes to fill the gaps in the ribbed floor.20200214_115831.jpg

Neither number 2 as he's likely to unravel when the going gets tough.

Definitely not Pingu, we know he can't fly....😁

If you get an email from the government saying that you can't eat tinned spiced pork or ham because it contains covid 19 ignore it. It's just spam! 😉

Ate into my plastic stash and built myself an allotment weather vane.

1/32 Revell. A 48 hour build.

A fantastic thermal indicator.20200406_143122.jpg

It is but taking advantage is not so easy. Had to open my own PH, meets all the PHE guidelines

Does a charger/discharger perform a similar function.

No, looking at the medium term forecasts for this end of the country. I suspect I have begun to chit my spuds a tad early.

Thread: Funny caption ideas?

Bang on Cliff, they were erected to deter, stop or damage any enemy aircraft from using it as a landing site. Not sure how plausible it was for the Germans to land there but as you know Dartmoor played a big role in WW2 and a lot of D Day prep went on there, there aren't many flat places in and around Dartmoor that weren't already in use by the Allies so maybe it was a sound precaution.

There was a temporary airfield near the Okehampton Range Camp long since farmed over.

Some way off, odd thing is I've stood there numerous times.

Next time you're up there, assuming you don't already know, have a guess at the purpose of the random vertical wooden stakes sticking up at various places on the plateau of Hamel Down.

There is also an interesting memorial to a WWII crash site at the northern end of Hamel Down.

I've been wracking my brains trying to work out the location. I've ruled out the North Moor so will hazard a guess at somewhere around the Buckfastleigh area.
