  1. It's from the other side which looks to be photographed straight on. I just cropped it, that's all. ? no magic involved. Steve
  2. Sarik Gyroo - Autogyro - Sarik Hobbies - for the Model Builder at a price. Steve
  3. From the full size image, my version.? Steve
  4. Yes a year ago ? Hard copy for June 2022 arrived over a week ago.? Steve
  5. Are these the files? chilli breeze rib outlines rev1.pdf chilli breeze wing rev1.pdf or are there others? Steve
  6. A good day thanks John. I didn't need to shout up as your team volunteered their services helping me unload and set up, much appreciated. Good to meet you Nick, I didn't realise you were so much younger than me.? Hope I didn't break the camera John. ? and home to cook dinner as well. ? Steve
  7. Saturday for me John. How early can I arrive? If I follow my normal routine I will be with you at 09:00 at the earliest. Steve
  8. Flew Phoenix 2000 but on the last flight I decided that I could not fly when I was shivering, maybe I am a bit premature putting shorts on. ??? Not to worry three good twenty minute flights and a bubble of rising air that took me from 100 m to 200 m made my day and I was home for lunch. Steve
  9. Good one Ron. ? I was on my own until 12:00 apart from an hour when Callum (Calli) had a few flights with his Gyrocopter I was told to retire to a safe distance, in the cabin?, just in case as he was out of practice. All good fun. I flew The Ohmen and Phoenix 2000. Steve
  10. Early by name but a month is the earliest I have ever been. Being a friendly forum no one on here really objects to my definition of summer being when the Swallows return. Steve
  11. Four flights today in the premature summer sunshine, a record for me over the last three years. Eight hours at the field with a group of good mates, for the last four hours anyway. We all agreed that we would make hay while the sun shines. More of the same tomorrow, following overnight rain, the best time for it to rain. The Swallows are looking for nesting sites, adding to the entertainment with their flying skills. I am going to enjoy summer while it is here. ? Steve
  12. Here in North Lincolnshire the temperatures have been above 20c and, as the Swifts and Swallows returned a couple of weeks ago it feels like summer to me. Flying yesterday, MPX Easystar and The Ohmen. Getting ready to go to the field again for a good day with my club mates. ? Steve
  13. Talking to Chris at SLEC, one day when he called me back after missing my call, he apologised and said he was out of the office in the wood mill. Also on their about page they say 'The company still produces a good range of accessories but also a large range of quality balsa wood sheet & strips, hardwoods all machined in our mill at Watton' My thinking is that they buy balsa logs and machine to size. Looking at the almost polished finish achieved then they must sand their balsa, probably to a final thickness. I suppose I could phone SLEC to confirm all this. Steve
  14. Yes a target to aim for. Which day are you aiming for. I am in Scunthorpe so not far for me (30 miles) either day will be easy for me. Where are you traveling from and which day for you? I could do both I guess. Steve
  15. Well that didn't take long, for my arm to ache, but not being happy with the results I tried again and again then again eventually boredom set in? Started covering, bottom first with red and cub yellow. The tape gives me a line to work to, the yellow overlaps the red. I leave a small gap between the covering and the tape. Some nice compound curves to practice on. Looks better trimmed. Ready for the sides next. Steve
  16. Take a look at this just to give you a start. Let us know how you get on. Steve
  17. Unfortunately it's f. That's if I have joined the dots correctly. rl radio link? and we all know the s. I hope this is not the start of a brand bashing series of posts, I thought we had grown out of that a long time ago. Steve
  18. Off topic but not to my knowledge, there could be a reason of course, do some research start a new topic and let us know what you find. Steve
  19. Yes I do have trouble joining the dots you provide and trying to work out what you mean. Dr Dai for example I had no idea he was a friend of yours and wasted my time on the E&T site looking for references to him. Joining the dots I take it that 'very religious countries' is code for Iran. No that does not make sense as they already use nuclear power. I don't have a clue what this means, but there again I never was very good at riddles. Please make allowances for people who struggle to join the dots by explaining what you mean. Steve
  20. I could not see for looking. Solar power imports from Morocco could ‘cut energy bills’, says developer | E&T Magazine (theiet.org) The idea is to power heat pumps not to charge cars.
  21. Looked at E&T who is Doctor Dai? Have you a link to the Octopus Energy story as I could not find it.
  22. What's religion got to do with it and what has this to do with electric cars.
  23. That's good news for us all Ernie. Thanks for the update. Steve
