Thread: RCM&E / Greenacres 2012 fly-in general chat
09/07/2012 12:31:22

Hi ya all, I am so disappointed that I couldn't attend Greenacres this year but my health has deteriated over the past couple of months. Please keep the pictures and video's coming. It looked great again this year despite the atrocious weather but the good old British spirit rose to the challenge and made it memorable. Cheers my friends.

Hi, nice flying with you Ian but you must get some 'ears' on. I find it flaming awkward to type a message and fly at the same time.

Hey Rusty, have you upgraded to the new 4.0.k ? I haven't yet because I want to be on at 8.30.

Sorry, off theme but why has the text on this thread disappeared behind the ads again after not having it happened for quite a while.


Thread: Missing pictures.
01/05/2012 15:01:02

Hiya all. I am experiencing some problems when pictures are inserted into threads. Take for instants the thread by Danny Fenton regarding the landing light for his Hurricane. The picture of the headlight taken from RCM&E is ok but the picture of Danny's trial piece is just blank with a small icon in the middle. This just a for instance as it is happening a lot. Any help appreciated as usual.

Hiya Rusty, managed to get there last night but not feeling too clever so had to cut it short. You'll have to try and get your ears on (cb talk) so we can compare crashes and splashes. wink

Cheers mate.


Thread: I wonder if any of you Phoenix users have had this problem?

Thanks for this Anthony. Job done. I must have been fiddling and pressed the wrong button.

Cheers mate.

Hiya all. I've got a problem with my Phoenix. Every time I go to fly solo, not logged on, there is this other chap (AlAlan) always there wherever I go. Any body come across this before? I thought I'd try on here first before I contact Phoenix.

Hiya. All these bikes and no-one has mentioned my favourite. I had a Matchless G12CSR in my youth. It was a great bike and I could see off the Bonni's when I used to frequent The Ace Cafe on the North Circular Road. Anyone remember the chain link fencing they put up between the dual carriage ways? Good stuff that 'cos when you hit it you came out the other side chips. It had to go when 'er indoors started producing the rug rats. Hoping to win the lottery one day before I get too old so I can buy a Harley Trike, as long as it's got reverse gear. lol

Hiya Robert. I would just like to add my admiration for an excellent build. Oh how I wish..but that's another story. Keep up with the pictures, I am following this build with a green tinge in my eyes. lol

Thread: New Phoenix 4 sim (beta)
14/04/2012 09:40:31

Hiya all. I've updated to the latest? offering fom Phoenix which is V4.0j. Had a bit of a problem to start with but uploaded easily enough, eventually. The reason I have gone to whole hog is because if you want to fly 'around the world' the majority of people on line have all gone to v4.0j and you need to be on this to join them. I have found no problems with this version at all and I'm really enjoying it, except when you get buzzed by the crazy Italians and you can't understand a word they are saying. lol

Darn it! missed it again. I'll have to tie a knot in my hanky.

Get well soon Myron, you are being missed already.

Thread: Phoenix Online Session
11/04/2012 09:03:23

Hiya all. Just to let you know that I have started a new session heading on Phoenix. It seemed daft to me that I am flying all alone like Billy-No-Mates when I could start an 'open' session and see who turns up. Session name is modelflying open. There is no password. This is for only when a proper session isn't going on.

Cheers my friends.

Thread: Flight Simulators. Do they help?
07/04/2012 21:45:58

Hiya all. Many thanks for all this input. I do feel that I am learning (remembering) with Phoenix but have now come to the point of practising something new. Done circuits and bumps, landings and inverted low passes, rolls etc. I think I'll take BEB's suggestion next and input a bit of weather.


07/04/2012 12:05:34

Hiya all. I have now had Phoenix for a while and I have to say that my flying skills have improved (returned) but is it enough, does it work when to 'do it' for real?

Thread: Explain your Username... ?!
06/04/2012 10:42:27

Hiya Chrissie, Great thread girl. Well it's just plain old Geoff I'm afraid, although that was down to my sister. Story goes that when I was born in 1941 Dad was on war work and Mum had a bad time with me so it was down to my sister Joan to register me. Mum and Dad wanted me to be a Frank but sis had other ideas so Geoffrey it is.

Hi Chrisie

Well, as you know i use my own name here but I do use another in other places.


Fetchermites used to be the small boys who haunted model flying fields and were used to retrieve models for ther older flyers. The name was dreamed up by humorous columnist Pylonius back in the 50s

I never was one but I use it at times as a apen name etc.

Hiya Peter. As a BTW I was a 'fetchermite' when I was a kid, although I didn't know it until now. I used to live in High Wycombe and the local flying area was called The Rye. Of course it was free flight in those days and I got very adept at climbing trees. It was one of these flyers, Polly Dimock, who nurtured my early interest in the sport.

Thanks for the memory.

Still attempting to upgrade from 3 to 4 - I'll join you next time online if I've managed to get to 4.0j!

Hiya John. I had a problem to start with but all of a sudden it loaded straight in no problem. Keep trying.
