  1. Hello guys, Some of the long term members may remember Myron Beaumont? Sadly after a long term incapacity he died. In his will he had left old RMC&E mags to Cancer Research who understandably are reluctant to accept them. At the moment I do not know just how many there are. His good lady asked me for advice. They would need to be uplifted from from her house which is about 8 miles from Scarborough town centre. I know there is not much demand but I am sure that they could go for a donation to Cancer Research. Any one serious about wanting them please say here and I will PM contact details so they can arrange for themselves. Thanks, Bob.
  2. The Facebook page, Pitlochry model aeroplanes has been changed to Scottish aeromodellers . This due to the page owner having relocated his home. Also better reflects the popularity of this site in Scotland and elsewhere.
  3. I would have seldom got to do anything if I had to wait for, or arrange for company. I live in the Scottish Highlands and have Walked the hills, shore fished the Lochs and seashores, as well as afloat by boat. I have been vermin and wildfowl shooting over much of the terrain. I have and still do, drive on at times, little used roads. I would say,, enjoy life, do not be afraid 'cos someone else is. They talk I think, from a certain level of inability to function alone. I have had injuries,, I still functioned. A very useful tip for bleeding wounds, wrap firmly in CLEAN plastic film or bags then compress as is advised by First Aid practice. Very good for keeping fibres from causing problems, also does not wick blood away so helping coagulation. I always have some in my First Aid kit/s.
  4. For the AUGUST Nat's to use Elvington I suggest that this would entail a much reduced event to that which we are used to at Barkston. I would wait and see as Andy Symons suggests.
  5. Good 'un Tony. You can cook the dinner next time I am at "The Nats" . Safe travels, Bob
  6. A useful item,,,, Little Hotties. Use once and dispose of although they normally stay useful for in excess of six hours. Great in the gloves or the pockets, also good in an insulated "Battery Box" for helping the batteries from getting too cold. Do a Google for decent priced bulk buy. The same product also goes under other names.
  7. Ken's suggestion cures most of the engines given the same circumstance. Brownie points Bob
  8. Just been on Facebook, Three types advertised and are being offered for sale at the moment. Other than that I know nought.
  9. I am one of the guys at that event, sitting down, well wrapped, and red gloves. The build is very easy the only "hard" part the decision on the exact shape to make the nose. a PAW 06 engine or equivalent is a good choice of engine size. It is a relaxing flyer, it will fly in a gentle-ish breeze. Dead stick landings are a must really although it just about lands itself. Thermals quite well Open exhaust Diesels are mucky, the sound is good, although once in the air not at all intrusive. Be careful with covering and paint choice as not all are diesel "safe".
  10. I had a message given that I, Myron, and Eric had been asked about. So a short visit to say HI FOLKS. Myron is not in the best of health sadly. I did enjoy a visit with him and Chrissie last August. Eric is busy elsewhere and seems to be doing fine. Thanks guys for the concern. I will try to pop in a bit more often. Won't be a lot tho'.... Yet.
