  4. I heard that the guy who made those plans, Vincent Unrau, is no longer with us. His blog on rcgroups still has photos of his builds: https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/member.php?u=635372 ... and there's a Facebook page with photos and other images: https://www.facebook.com/foamboardaircraft/

  5. Every member of our club is required to sign the following form on joining. Members can therefore comply or not with regulation as they wish but it is on their own back.

  7. As i rarely do any real work on a computer and spend most of my time causing trouble helping on forum's, watching videos or shooting down virtual 109's i still use my ancient copy of office 2003. It works, its free, and its more than enough for my purposes even if it is very old now. That said, its not like typing has changed much since 2003 so i cant see that a new version has anything to offer me. All they do is move the buttons around so you cant find anything.

  9. Reverse flicking a prop is great, even better if there’s a spinner that you can just flick with your fingers (obviously not in the case of the Chippy). However as long as there’s no hydraulic lock the use of a starter is fine and should not be detrimental to an engine.

  10. It makes good sense, I confess to using the starter too much but what you are doing now is a lot better for the engine and the airframe.

  11. Hard to believe this took me two evenings! There was no way of getting the guns inside without cutting them up, sadly. I tried all roads to wiggle them in with the instrument panel in place, no chance. In the end the answer was to cut the breech blocks right back and fix them to the instrument panel. Even then, I had to relieve some areas inside to get it in, but finally, success! The rest of the cockpit should be easy now. Waiting for the pilot from Dave Banks.

  12. There is a 45ish degree header. Looks a bit like it might not be man enough unsupported but the silencer is super light and the engine so so smooth it hasn’t been any problem. In my case the pressure nipple has been blocked off as the engine us pumped.

  13. The Mouse was a horrid addition. The wretched things caused no end of misery. It was a happy day when they fell off, never to be seen again.

  14. This is life. The UK, for better, for worse, left the EU customs union. Choice made, train has gone, not coming back. Live with it. No use blaming shops if they are inefficient at the complications of trading across the barrier. No doubt, if it’s a core part of business, they will go to the wall, or if peripheral to the business they and you will live with it. Works both ways. Living in France, stuff from the UK has to be sent so La Poste delivers. Or I’m not buying. They send an e mail with the tax bill, I pay online, I get a code as proof of payment, and postie captures it to his machine. Charge about £2. That I live with, if I NEED that item. Otherwise, trade within my customs area. I’m still waiting to see if the UK cheese industry collapses from my loss of custom.

  15. What Eric said. Spitfire all the way. If it must be a jet then the Hawker Hunter fits the bill. Concorde isn't intrinsically British IMO - it's literally an Anglo-French aeroplane, almost the definitive version of such.

  16. Absolutely not. It's the individual's responsibility and not the club officials.

  18. Not just FFAM fields Paul. Registered sites. We are registered. Not FFAM affiliated. We would need insurance, BMFA would be fine, and a check flight. Otherwise help yourself for visitors. For information of visitors, Continental flying sites look the same, are laid out the same, and have the same flying rules as BFMA standard site layout. Picture of ours, St John D’Angely, Charente Maritime, Western France. Another gastronome club. One members job is producing Foie Gras. Not for supermarkets, but high end restaurants. So we have to eat it, with brioche, onion confit, and whiskey. Hard work, but if you have the mental stamina a keep doing this hobby, you will manage.
