  1. Thanks Kevin b. PM sent. Thanks Kc, looks like Kevin b. has sorted my problem. Appreciate your reply.
  2. Thanks David for the info. I thought I'd seen pictures of a plan before now!! My first Funfly was a great flyer but I got too confident, Too low, too slow and a wooden fence jumped up and grabbed it!!
  3. Thanks Caveman. I'm on my 3rd Funfly. All 3 have been salvaged ones. This one is an electric converted fuselage now completed. It had foam wings with badly deteriorated veneer so Ive purchased a wingset from Slec. Got loads of drawings but thought there was a plan, maybe it was the original precedent plans i've seen. Anyway, thanks again. I'll lay all the bits out and peruse the drawings and sketches. Its a good lockdown project!!
  4. Anyone got an un-needed Funfly plan out there. Just for the wing assembly really. Happy to pay and cover postage. Thanks all.
  5. Some 60 years off and on including the "sex drugs n rock n roll years, marriage, 2 kids and a career. Airfix when I was in single figures and a plan from Boys Own Paper when I was eleven, tissue dope and a Cox 010 bought from paper round money! Loved it all, no regrets just wish I could fly like Jase Dussia!
  6. Big thumbs up to Nexus! Ordered some bits at 5pm online yesterday and just arrived midday today, Royal Mail. Great service. Thanks Nexus.
  7. Amen to all the sentiments in your post Nightflyer. Have a great Xmas and New Year.
  8. My thoughts are with you. I lost my Chris in July after 46 years together. But as someone else said look after yourself. There are no wordsbut hopefully like me your happier memories will overcome the sad ones. Best wishes.
  9. Sorry John. The hope with reviews is that the manufacturer picks up and puts it right! Its a nice model and has good "presence".
  10. The Dynam 110 suffered from motor timing out of the box when reviewed. A fix was published with my review in RCM&E in Sep 2015. The motors wud not sync sometimes on throttle up. Could happen in flight as well which might explain the attrition rate.
  11. Ikonnik 6 works well in my Flitezone Beaver and Aurora 9. No probs thus far.
  12. Sorry, just spotted the Magsuk reference!
  13. Many thanks Beth, really appreciated but how did it come to this ? I have 10 years of RCM and E in binders and dontwant to change. Will it still be Magsuk? Thanks again.
  14. Beth, Thats sad. They wont match what I have already. I will now have to review my subscription. What happened tocustomer service. You could have printed this in RCM&E and forwarned everybody. Very disappointed. s
  15. Thanks kc, have made a note but cannot believe RCM&E are not aware of the problem. Appreciate your help.
  16. Is anyone else having trouble getting a binder?
  17. I bought a Maxford Neptune at Cosford last year. Waiting on maiden at Ullswater this year. Its still available. Goes together well.
  18. Beth, binders not available again! Magsuk have just told me they are not being manufactured at present!? Can u clarify please.
  19. My ST Seawind flew beautifully off Ullswater last year. My first time off water! Wkill be back with a Maxford Neptune and Macchi M33 this year. Busy on Mike Roach's Canadair CL415 twin for next year. Wet Wings club also fly from Carr Mill dam, nearSt Helens if you are in the North West. Y
  20. Having recently attended a local airport's drone safety awareness seminar with ATC and safety managers from UKs 2nd largest airport it was disappointing how few drone fliers, both recreational and commercial understood or new about insurance. Additionally one guy thought the local council were responsible for all flying in their area ( approach to uks 2nd largest airport). It was good to note that Nats are on "our side" and also embrace drone technology, indeed using drone runway inspection between 2 minute departure arrivals!. I trained with Nats during the late 60s and early 70s and have huge respect for their vision of safety and , I believe, their respect for our hobby.
  21. Carry 3 or 4 triangular bandages. My 1st paramedic aid trainer taught me these can be used on nearly all physical in juries. Very versatile and cheap. cardiac stuff different - needs rapid assistance.
  22. Machine Mart do a range of Tiger compressors. Had one for several years, does bike and car tyres and several sizesof airbrush and spray guns.
  23. Yep, need another category! Like many I was building longbefore ARTF. Do all now, kits, plans and ARTF.
  24. Watch out for mice- I kid you not! They love a nice cosy fuselage and use chewing on servo leads as their winter therapy.
  25. Yep, a great day on the Sunday for 3 of us sharing a car to get there. Great flying, great variety, love the VC10, Vulcan butjust about everything was good. Trade was plentiful, commentary varied but never intrusive. Gonna try for Elvington next. Missed Cosford for last 2 years but good to see the standards still being maintained at high level.
