|Thread: FAA redefining aeromodelling|
Since when have been at war with Asia ?
Why is it only and immediately people of, quote, "Asian Ancestry" seen as a terrorist threat ?
Do you not remember the IRA and any other instance of terrorism not involving a muslim etc any more or has television and news media propagandised you so much anybody with slightly darker skin and maybe facial hair is an imminent threat, this is the 2nd thread in a week where straight as terrorism is mentioned its the Muslims we have to suspect.
I get numerous people interested when i`m out flying, of all sorts of origin, I don't jump to conclusions about any of them, look at the shows, How many different origins of people do you see in the crowds watching, Do you straight away think they`re here to see which models are best for fitting bombs to etc ?
Perhaps your attitudes towards the people that came to you for help are the very reason you didn't see them at your club again. Colin states above that nobody would let them fly immediately because of insurance, my club has a 3 visit rule that the BMFA insurance covers someone for 3 visits before they join when they`re assisted by a member, surely its not just my club the BMFA does this for, if it was a little kid with his mum that turned up with all the gear would you act the same, be suspicious and turn him away being so worried you had to call the police if you never saw him again too ?

As its in UK, go to Parcel Forces track and trace page, input your tracking number and Robert`s your mothers brother
|Thread: Recommendations for 4S 3300mah Lipo|
I will highly recommend Gens Ace too, I have a few of each of a few different sizes from 1800 2s in my lads rc car, upto a 3300 4s and every one has been faultless
|Thread: Thank you Horizon Hobby|
I know its nit-picking but surely if that is the case then they shouldn't be telling people "we`ve tested it and there was no fault" they should say "ok if you`re not happy and suspect something is wrong, we will replace it with another just in case"
What if that £15 / £20 item to them was in a few £thousand worth or thousand hour creation of yours that went in due to radio problems, would you want to know then if it was that which was at fault, or would you be pleased with their £15 / £20 replacement ?
The thing that concerns me about Horizons service for Spektrum is with things like receivers, they always seem to follow the same script as RX failed, was sent off to Horizon who subsequently find nothing wrong, yet replace said RX with a brand new one "just in case"
My question is how can this be profitable, if they replace every ( according to their test ) perfectly fine RX, surely they are going to be loosing money, I mean say for instance if I came around to test your electrics in your house, it all tested fine, safe and within regulations then proceeded to tell you I`ll rewire it just in case, you`d think I was havin a laugh !
Or are they possibly finding faults yet deliberately saying there was no fault with the original RX as to not make themselves in someway liable for any incidents it may have caused, or look bad for selling a faulty product ?
|Thread: Hobby King Tracking|
Its on the left at the top, opposite bottom right
Seriously though, I doubt you are using IE8 as its old now, I think the current is IE11 ?
Just go into your account, above where it says what you pasted it says CHECK in blue, click that, and then it will show all your orders, there will be a blue code next to your order, sometimes clicking that takes you to tracking site where you copy and paste the blue code into, also I often copy and paste it into parcel force`s track and trace website which tells me if its got here yet etc
I hope you lot don't have any plans for "social experiments" on our moods lol
|Thread: WingNWheels, NorthWeald|
I went to the North Weald museum ( just a little house really on the side of the road ) a few weeks ago when I went to Duxford for the weekend, Didn't know they had a model Airshow there but I thought I`d heard the name somewhere before
|Thread: p47 nose art|
Theres a few places depending on what you want / how much you want to spend etc - ModelMarkings is one and the owner is a member of this forum, Flightline graphics is another but expect to wait a while as he`s always busy, Callie-graphics is American but a good choice with ready made graphic kits so theyre fast and Pro mark is another but expensive
|Thread: oh dear ... lost it ...|
surely it would have been better to purposely crash it safely into the ground than just let it float off uncontrolled ? doesn't need to be making headway to go downwards
|Thread: Hobbyking virgin ...|
Parcel Farce don't deliver saturdays
|Thread: Home DIY help|
if possible could you remove and later refix a tile close to where the fixing points are ? When I did mine which is as you describe, I cut a small hole so I could just get my hand through in the pb nearish to where I wanted to mount it and fed in some 6 inch wooden blocks to screw into and spread the load then simply tiled over the hole, shower screens are quite heavy, get knocked and leant on etc and probably will pull any sort of rawl plug fixing out
|Thread: Weston Park 2014 chat|
According to DB the 10 year old 3D flying a H9 Carden Extra did, so maybe ?
I doubt they could get insurance to cover it as B test is required to fly at such shows which kind of rules out learners lol
The BMFA did have their stand with any information required and simulators etc too though which seemed quite busy over the weekend
|Thread: What's flying over your house|
Nato are doing more "War Games" in the Baltics, 2nd time in as many months.
The American military industrial complex wont be making as much money from selling weapons seen as America is meant to be pulling out of Afghanistan, they need an excuse to ramp up fear and get countries spending money on arms to protect them from some faux boogeyman, the coldwar were their glory years, so cold war 2.0 would be in their best interests
|Thread: Corsair Plans|
Top Flite do a 60 size Corsair too, Im halfway through one, the wings are made in 3 sections with the centre gull wing section being all interlocking parts etc so its easier to build straight, theres a good build thread on RCScalebuilder with extra scale modifications too if you are that way inclined
