  3. 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.
  4. Welcome from me too Dave, I enjoy your scribblings, good useful stuff 😉👍
  5. 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?
  6. Selling these as a lot, all in 'good' - 'not bad' condition. £20 to include postage.

  11. Several people have reported this post as spam/advertising. I’ve contacted Sandro and am assured he’s neither although the title (now amended) and pasted content do him no favours. His posting history should dispel doubts.
