Isn't it an invasion of privacy showing some ones number plate on a public forum. I say this in all seriousness, eg the TV block of car numbers on news items. smiley

I am NOT going to get into an argument but a news story would show the date and place where that number was which would then locate the owner at a time and place. That might possibly be an invasion of privacy.

So, if you can tell me where and when that photo was taken I will remove it

I would also add that people with very obvious cherished numbers as extraordinary as that one must expect them to be photogrpahed

Let's hope he covers his number plate up when driving then.

Exactly Peter.

I'd imagine the whole notion/idea behind a personalised registration plate is to display the fact that the owner of the said vehicle has personalised it and would like you to know that. Otherwise what would be the point?

If the owner of the car I photographed hadn't wanted his plate to be seen by me or anyone else while it was parked among hundreds of other cars, then perhaps a cover over the plate may have been the way to go?

Well I for one am getting out far more than I usually do and clocking up a good number of flights. Long may it last. It feels like living near the Med.

The harder than usual runway is suiting one or two models better than others. My Chilli Wind, wide stance taildragger, likes it, the RM Trainer with its trike gear also does, the Bi Fly with a slightly forward, narrow and high UC, not so much. My foamie MX2 will nose over on any ground, but it's UC is useless.

This week I have a newly inherited (and quite well used) Pushycat style model - although a touch bigger at 42" and about 3lb (I think built on some Mirus wings) - to "re-maiden".

Had a great day Saturday flying my World models Spitfire which has a great performance with its Laser 80. I did my first bit of “Warbird formation flying” with a clubmate piloting his very nice Seafire(navy Spitfire) powered by an OS 120fs. The two planes sounded great together with their 4s sound and it was much harder than I had anticipated trying to keep in formation . I must admit I purposely missed out my club mates synchronised “loop” command as I wasn’t ready ! Great fun!

On Sunday I flew my Seagull P47 (my favourite) having had a really good flight I flat stalled it on landing whilst attempting to go around and sadly broke a wing ( new wings now on order) . The P47 with its Laser 100 has been my “go to” Warbird and has had s lot of flights so I’m not too sad about my mistake . Hopefully it will soon be up for more action 😊

Along with the other 30, 000 model fliers i have been out, flying my models.

Somethings never change though, United Utilities had more road works on the principal road that I take. Then of course those Fracking protestors were back, although not closing the road. I guess the rather serious, fit looking (rather than the rolly poly) police persons were a serious deterrent. Although the protestors still wander into the path of cars that do not beep in support.

On that basis on Saturday I decided to take the coast road to our site. What a mistake, why, because an attempt at a Guinness record was taking place on the beach. The coast road itself was closed, the detour went at a snails pace. Oh, if my state education had only taught me to read. Then I would have read all about it in the local rag. Oh, if I only had a bit of commence sense, I should have thought that the Lytham festival, with all the singing artists, would have have hoards of the holiday and day trippers in town. I did not twig the obvious, when I was going to see El Divo on the Sunday Night. How dim can one be?

My flying has been mixed. After another repair to the Do 335, it has finally bit the dust. All the repairs, the checks, the hours of blood, sweat, and tears, had it spin out of the sky, totally unresponsive, smiting the ground with a mighty thwack. For £20 from BRC hobbies, years of successful, pleasure laden flights, not bad value.

My Junkers/ Meschersmitt 263 has flown a few times. It needs more development and repairs, as it goes posterior over chest, when it lands. This is due to running out of elevator as it does not flair to land, then going, you know the rest.

The brilliant news is that my HK Arcus is now fling like a Pushy Cat. The one down side is that it is not as sprightly on a APC style prop, as it was on the original Gemfan prop. Weight really does matter, it seems.

At long last my old Ta 152H is back in the air, thanks to a club member launching it for me. I have cut down on elevator throw. One thing I have learnt at my new club is that it is better to harmonise the controls, than to fly round the vastly differing reactions of the model.

Other than that I continue flying the Sterling Kits Stinson, the PM Cassut, he really needs to scale this model up to about 50" span and Bills Models Slingsby T67, which rather flatters the flier.

As to the smaller stuff, it will have to remain my Delta and bring the Pushy Cat back into service.

Long Live Summer!

Sadly, I too couldn't resist the weather and my lidl glider paid the price! I let one of my friends who flies quad copters chase me. There I am having a wonderful time with my lidl glider and then he cuts the tail of mid flight with his props! All that being said I was up at the club yesterday and having a wonderful time flying my Super 60 and Vampire.

Managed to get flying today, only the second time this year. Managed 5 flights with my re-motored WOT 4 E Mk 2, took out all the church roof and fitted paralleled 3S 2200, it balanced a treat. Flies like a WOT 4 should now.
