  1. Too windy for the flat field yesterday but perfect for sea cliff soaring. We made some new friends too.
  2. Back after a holiday to find the weather hadn't improved greatly, still, there's always the hill and I had plenty of company yesterday.
  3. I’m just awaiting IT’s thoughts on the matter…
  4. All very best wishes Matty. I had a TIA aged 43 (I'm 60 now), I was fit and no obvious reasons for it. Thankfully no ill effects I'm aware of but TIA/stroke medical response and treatment have come a long way in the last 17 years, so you'll be far better looked after.
  5. Message just received from Andy in IT: Just to let you know I need to change the server for the main website (not the forum), I’ll be doing this in the next 30mins, while it is happening the main website may not be reachable by users. If users are going directly to the forum they will be unaffected, if they are coming via the main website (with www. Rather than forum.) they may get an error or not found message while the server address propagates.
  6. Yes, today was a very welcome dry interval. There were 6 of us at the field. A club mate flew his E-flite Draco. I'd not seen one before, it's an impressive beast and flies well, but then so it should for the money (£600+ new, although he got his secondhand for £300). A sun halo marked our departure.
  7. Rain over the weekend and Monday fed the river at the bottom of our field, so my floats came out again earlier this week 🙂.

  10. Very good Leccy. I’ve been tempted by the batteries on Amazon, so I might try the Zeees if you’ve had good experience with them. Service wise, for my part, and like Ken, Leeds Model Shop again. Made two orders over the weekend and, without me asking, they combined the two and refunded a postage cost.
  11. Welcome from me too Dave, I enjoy your scribblings, good useful stuff 😉👍
  12. Similar observations at the bring-and-buy my club runs at the Southern Model Show, especially the last two or three years. Old, beaten up i.c.-powered airframes, perhaps a WOT of some sort we couldn't give away. These would have sold easily enough a few years back and been patched and flying soon after. Interestingly perhaps, we found that a 'well-flown' foamie, one with plenty of scars and repairs usually found a new home. So I wonder if it's an i.c.-electric thing with many newer flyers and beginners just not au fait with engines?
