Back on topic, you need a robot magazine, then build a robot picker upper of magazines, then you have a RCM@E in hand, and a possibility of an earner from sales of the picker upper. Need a better name for it.

I fancy you might do better if you post on one of the American sites. Rare aircraft, you need a bigger net.

Yea Percy, quite right. Mind a skilled worker, out of apprenticeship was on 15? 17? quid a week. If you had got a bit of overtime. Was a nice motor though.

Nelson Mandela, "Forgiveness starts here. Forgiveness liberates the soul"

Memory fuelled by St Émilion AOC.

I would agree with you Percy.

Steven, Simon, there was a very cerebral discussion a few days ago about lockout interference issues with a series of FrSky receivers. It was informative and informed.

When you have either something valid to say, or a statistically valid argument, speak. Until then lob your bricks somewhere else. Thank you.

I think its getting far too political,Same at work too,you cant even have a bit of banter anymore,and if its noticed you look at women too much,your in the gaffers office,and they want to know why,no more wolf whistling,or talking about sex with the lads,but yet women can be as provocotive as ever,i know its off the subject,but i believe i have a point,in general,happy landings!

When ladies cease to be provocative, I will change my sexual orientation. Then look out.

i believe I am within the COP.

There is little common ground on any topic except aircraft. On that subject we argue.

Just toy engines Jon. Mums are valuable.

You have a bid. You have offerered them for sale, and you have a buyer. Contract made. Your potential buyer might have an issue if you change your mind.

PS, Not my bid.

Francois, that is lovely. Has it flown?

Thread: YouTube Video you like

I remember a thread from a couple of years ago, same idiot in charge. Last time someone crashed a Wot 4 into the front garden of one of the houses, across the busy road, you can see at the start.

A Wot 4 is not so small, not their risk. Bye the bye, there are footpaths under their flying area.

Jon, will be restricted for elbow room in his new house, so to save him trouble, worn out that he is producing all those new engines, the 80 will produce sufficient power, as Rolls Royce used to say.

Thread: Cordless - Dremel or Aldi special?
17/05/2019 19:21:10

I had a Dremel cordless for a long time. Eventually the (NiCad) battery wore out. A fine tool, just balance the work rate against what a battery can support.

i bought a Lidl replacement, Lipo battery. It's Ok for light load jobs, but if cutting or sanding, loading the drill is a nightmare. Slightly overload, and it stops. The old drill slowed, and you backed off pressure.

So the 240 volt job does the real work nowadays.

In fairness to Lidl/Aldi tools. If I were thinking of laying out the thick end of £100 on a cordless drill, I would like a grind with it first..

Thread: Suggestions for vintage model

How about a KK Slicker type. They go vertical up, and float down. Can be very addictive to reduce the drop rate after the climb. Fit a radio DT, don't ask why. Take an armless recliner.

A nice companion to provide refreshment would be very nice.

Or even get a saw out, some glue, and use decent materials.

I intend to take the free online test to "prove my competance" and continue flying without registration. Stuff em.

You do wonder, if you made it a condition that you put your name, address, pilot number on the machine, it's gets round the problem.

I had a MIG piston fighter. Poor fittings, the elevator clevis slid straight off the pushrods thread. Undercarriage mounts poorer than most. Flew OK.

Colin, you wrote that post. Get writing a letter. Bit of advice, you did your B, ignorant recipient of your views didn't.

We are all suckers. We have all befallen the lies of suppliers, and marketing departments. We do, in time get, more cynical, (some of us).

This is, something for the aspirant, with a few quid to spare.

I note they don't bother with a 6s version, because there will be no market.
