Thread: RC aeromodelling promoting
23/01/2021 12:31:13

In the club when i was learning, the vast majority used MODE 1. I still use mode 1 although i can if needed use mode 2. I dont know if this is down to being ambidextrous or not.

Thread: Cutting out ribs etc
18/01/2021 12:27:24

Flight 1, Try looking at LIDLE or Aldi, They sometimes have bandsaws in. Not very big but suitable for most jobs if set up right. Steve. PS, I got one here in Portugal.

Thread: rubber / synthetic fabric runway
06/01/2021 10:37:15

We used to have some neoprene matting strips where i worked, designed as non slip and preventing your feet being "drawn" on concrete. About 1.5 mtr wide and as long as you wanted with a yellow stripe down the edges.

Thread: Royal Mail Track and Trace
03/01/2021 16:16:54

Just got a card in post box saying i have a parcel to collect. It was posted on 10th DEC and PO tracking said it was still in Uk on 27th. PS we are in Portugal.

Thread: Hello from OG Tier 4
30/12/2020 17:50:39

Hi EB, A straight answer would be "they are plugs" obviously different types. The wires are "crimped" into connectors which are then inserted into the plastic mouldings. The crimping is done using different types of crimp pliers, similar to (but not the same)as those used on a multitude of low voltage cables eg car wiring. Steve.

PS welcome to the forum.

Thread: New scam alert!
10/12/2020 11:37:09

Andy, I had one of those early this year. A disjointed recording with a "american" accent. Send it to the phishing site at hmrc.

Hi Cuban8, My son works for BT and has said he gets loads of complaints(including me) about the "NEW" e-mail system. Also the cursor marks are nearly invisible.

13/10/2020 13:27:11

This last week I received an e-mail from DVLA, Telling me i needed to update my details. That immediately flagged a scam, as 1, I don`t have a vehicle registered in UK, 2, I live abroad.

Thread: Awful Aviation Documentaries
11/10/2020 11:14:17

I always thought Discovery was an American channel. On this assumption you can understand why they have to repeat themselves so often, in order to get the required length of programme, and to cover how long has been cut out (where the yanks get adverts) i;e; short attention span.

Thread: Enya SS40.....fuel
29/09/2020 15:53:43

I am currently re-furbing my ss40 after a 15 year layup. It is approx 40 years old and has only had one new bearing over that time. I ran it on SMC 5%. It used to be in a ROBBE PUMA, not a light model but did very well.

Thread: Why RC? Why not FF?
29/08/2020 14:14:33

As was told to me many years ago at Primrose Valley modelling week by a number of the older generation who were flying freeflight models.".Radio is only a means of ensuring the model lands in the same county"

Thread: Help with continuity testing
21/08/2020 23:22:44

Does your meter have the facility to do a continuity check? not all do. They normally give a tone on continuity.

Thread: RC IC Engines, you've probably never heard of.
17/08/2020 14:42:03

Were´nt they marketed by MFA?

Thread: Pusher props
16/08/2020 17:22:49

John, I have spoken to someone in the trade and he says that they are the same thing. I cannot see that, in that the airfoil on the blade would be wrong as well. Still not heard back from the shop i bought them from. Steve.

Thread: Jim Davis Lancaster
12/08/2020 11:23:41

That would be the same as Roy Levers big Lanc They used to fly it from the back of a car with the roof down.

Thread: Pusher props
02/08/2020 18:27:59

John, I have recently received 2 3-blade "pusher" props from a major UK model shop as spares. Looking at them after unpacking they are the same as yours. In the picture on the shops website it is clear they are Proper pushers, yet i received RP as you did. I am contacting the shop to let them know. Steve.

Thread: MFA Power Panel
31/07/2020 17:16:17

Not sure what the layout is inside, but i suspect a resistor has gone down. That would drop the 12v to 2v for the plug. If you have a multimeter check against what is on the resistor/s. Steve.

Thread: Pusher props
29/07/2020 19:18:00

John, I have two models with pushers, Both are mounted as normal with flat side to washer and nut. Steve.

Thread: Masks
25/07/2020 18:04:08

Here in Portugal we have been wearing masks for several weeks now. We have not had the "mass hysteria" you seem to have had in UK. It is taken for granted that if you want to be in shops you wear a mask..We have one of the lowest rates of infection (despite not being on the "air bridge "list. Spain has multiple outbreaks all over the place but is on the list. It is not rocket science to take basic precautions.
