  1. The plan was free in the July 2014 copy of the magazine. So a back copy with it in may be available. Otherwise Sarik seems to have it here https://www.sarikhobbies.com/product/rc2134-red-eagle-plan/ There's a kit available from RBC kits too https://www.rbckits.com/shop/red-eagle-glider-complete-kit.html
  2. Hi George and welcome to the forum. I've removed your email address from the post because leaving it like that makes it very easy for fraudsters to get hold of it. Folk will answer your questions in other posts here. If they wish to contact you directly, they will use the personal message system. Nice looking model, by the way. Chris
  3. Pete I've also spotted a NOTAM B1639/22 covering RF jamming activity. I'm not versed in interpreting these but it appears to say that RF jamming could cover a radius of 20nm of Birmingham. FROM: 22 Jul 2022 06:00 GMT (07:00 BST) TO: 09 Aug 2022 23:00 GMT (10 Aug 00:00 BST) SCHEDULE: 0600-2300
  4. @dhendley is there any progress on scaling the ads in the mobile version of the forum. The new Panic ad is still as bad as any have been.
  5. Here we go. I think a lot of us have been waiting to see what the next steps in commercial drones will be. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-62177614.amp
  6. Ooh I should dig that out again, it's quite a while since it flew. Was that the fly in where it gained a new takeoff dolly from you?
  7. That looks great Colin, I'm glad you're back at it. Those were the days eh? Mass builds and mass flying at Greenacres.
  8. @dhendley Is there anything that can be done about the formatting of the mobile version? For me, using Chrome browser on Android, the ad banners appear to be pushing some of the page far over to the right. This means that clicking the "three bars" to see some menu options, the menu appears way off screen to the right. It's really not obvious where to look, until you finally work it out.
  9. Like the article or not, his point is valid - that if glitches or loss of control is in any way possible by the closeness of a phone to the Tx, and, mitigating against it is as simple as having your phone in your back pocket rather than the front, then why wouldn't you? (A metre away would be far better but hey..) I'm sure there's been more than one loss of model over the years this way and expect that there was usually no explanation ever found. Who remembers putting a mobile phone next to a hifi amp and getting a horrid noise from the speakers as a call comes in?
  10. There are a number of good glassing videos on the YouTube channel of our own @Danny Fenton For example:-
  11. I think a bi-directional one would do, Brian? If memory serves me correctly, you'd just need to set the offset voltage to suit, probably to half supply volts? A quick eBay search found this in the UK (and plenty offered from China). https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/CJMCU-CJMCU-758-ACS758LCB-050B-PFF-T-Linear-Current-Sensor-Hall-Current-Module-/163353797118?mkcid=16&mkevt=1&_trksid=p2349624.m46890.l49286&mkrid=710-127635-2958-0
  12. Hi Brian. The article was published in the May 2019 edition. Note: I've sent you a PM too. Chris
