I hadn't seen that Eck, that's nice. Ok forgot to add that, as always feel free to let us have your thoughts in relation to the new Feb issue. Hopefully we'll see some smarter delivery times this month.

Haven't got the issue yet, but I was disappointed to see Mr. H getting interested in itchy stuff in not one, but two columns...

Was nice to see a picture of Geoff Franklin. My Dad bought my first model from him at his shop in Leicester in 1980 (I was only 9). Geoff gave me my first 2 or 3 flying lessons, then I was on my own. Some happy memories.
 
Cheers,

I'm confused.  Doesn't take much
 
The "next issue" page in Jan mag said the free plan would be an Alex Whittaker designed low winger
 
How did that turn into Glen Block's BV215 ??

I'm also confused I was looking forward to Mr Whittakers low winger which I assume would be IC powered.   I have to say though these funny electric things certainley seem to go ok,  just don't sound right.

What's an "e" between friends?

PS Bit off thread but picking up on Plummet's comment...
There is this guy lives in Yorkshire, and sadly his wife dies. So after the funeral he goes to the stone mason and orders a headstone for his wife's grave. He tell the mason, 
 
"I want the stone to read, 'Lord, she was thine'"
 
A few weeks later the stone mason contacts him and says he's finished the work. So the guy goes the grave to inspect it. He is horrified to discover that it says
 
"Lord, she was thin"!
 
So he phones the mason: "You've got it wrong", he says, "you've missed the 'e' off"
 
Well the mason apologises profusely and says he'll get right on it and that if the guy goes to take a look the next day it will all be sorted. So the next day the guy goes back to his wife's grave - imagine his dismay when he read on the stone....
 
"Ee Lord, she was thin"!

My January issue turned up today........

Arrived today - usual high quality offering that continues to be the benchmark.
 
However...
 
Why does Alex Whittaker continue to try and make model flying appear cool and trendy - reference his Electric Masters report?
 
I love model flying and have done so since I was 13 - over 35 years ago.  Maybe it was cool and trendy in 1958 - before The Beetles, the pill and mind altering substances came on the scene - but it never has been in my experience.  Punk rock was, motorbikes and then cars were, your first under-age pint in the local Rugby club was and girls have always been cool.  But model flying?  Get real!
 
My 23 year old daughter falls about laughing when she looks over my shoulder and sees the "cool and trendy" characters who adorn the pages of RCM&E.
 
Last August, she saw a picture of a group of forum posters at the Nats (on this site) and was convinced she was looking at "Britain's Most Wanted" website.  In the cold light of day, it was quite scary

Free plan looks great, it looks very stable and a good flyer at slow speed too,  after watching some of the bigger models fly I have to wonder how stable the full size was on the ground in any kind of a blow.
