Fighteraces & Gaydon 2019

I have unfortunately had to make the decision not to attend as a trader at the 2019 Gaydon event. We unfortunately missed 2018 after the arrival of my 2nd son (10 weeks prematurely) just a few weeks beforehand, but my decision this year is based purely with 'work' and the fact that we are incredibly...

Re: The Global “anti-drone” hysteria continues..

I truly believe it's down to the manufacturers/retailers to resolve the issue (not that it ever will because it's too much trouble, too expensive & will compromise their sales) If you go into a 'toy shop' or some random website & buy one of these things with no notices on the box, no paperwo...

Re: John Townsend RIP

Sad news, condolences to Simon & the rest of the family. Having only recently completed the final inspection on John's stunning Mr. Mulligan, I truly hope it's possible at some point in the future that someone may take this superb model on & fly it in John's memory.

Re: Ziroli Hellcat CG position....HELP

You always balance a model with rearward retracting gear 'gear up' so it goes a little nose heavy as the gear comes down, rather than tail heavy when the gear goes up.
