The ultimate question that all beginners face: IC or Electric?

" Simply stated i.c. engines just aren't as reliable as electric"

 

David, I can already hear the wailing and gnashing of teeth

Not exactly the ultimate question.

I was expecting the answer to life, the universe and everything

I was expecting the answer to "is it two or three eggs in the perfect omlette? "

I enjoyed the magazine. Danny Fenton's report is excellent and I enjoyed all the other articles too. The Icon one was particularly interesting. For Pete Lowe's OS or Saito debate I voted Laser!

That quote probably has more to do with Davids ability to run an IC engine than anything else

dry joints, intermittent connections, poor charge regimes, incorrect prop/esc/motor sizing - more reliable for a beginner - really?

Bought my mag. today in the local newsagents and am having a quick 'flick through'. One glaring error is in Dave Roberts article on the Bristol Freighter - the photo on page 71 of Aer Turas EI-APC was christened 'City of Cork' and not 'City of York'. Better picture HERE. wink

I enjoyed it as always, it was especially nice to see one of my comments in the lunchtime debate.

However I do Have a bit of a moan, now I realise that the magazines are a commercial item and have to make money and as such adverts are neccessary, but now they are taking up vertical half pages in amongst the articles.

I much prefer the articles to be complete and the adverts on there own pages, full page if needed.

Good idea, I agree with that, adverts fine but keep them outside of an article, any chance of this happening?

Many thanks to RCM&E and in particular Alex Whittaker for the article on my Flea, some fab pictures, why they make the Flea look positively sedate!!

When can we expect the third part of the Graupner MZ-24 radio test? The world is agog, awaiting the RCM&E insight into both programming, and, the various telemetary options this radio has to offer.

Had a browse whilst in Sainsbury's this aft. Afraid I'm going to be brutaly honest & say that I didn't see £4.50 worth of reading in it.
4 pages on making a dummy pilot, 2 quads reviewed, 4 pages of Wizard of Oz plus two or three pages of his review of an engine - sorry but there was just wasn't enough in the rest to make it worth the money for me.

no

no

Yes my thoughts to sadly, two quad copter reviews and a very poor article "telling" the beginner that electric is the way to go.

I do understand what the winter is probably a hard time for articles but the magazine is turning into an electic flight only read.

As Cymaz puts why not look at different angles like clubs etc,

My wife picked up my copy this month but I won't make that mistake again any future purchases will be vetted at the newsagents first.

Alex Whittaker's input was about all I enjoyed this month.
