Re: Fun stuff goes here.

The Compensation A man in hospital is told that his manhood was crushed to a pulp in a car crash. The surgeon tells him; 'We can re-build it but it's a thousand pounds an inch.

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Steve, I have tried calling you on home phone number and it is not recognised. Tried your mobile and could not get a reply. Received call from you on mobile but all quiet when I answered.

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Yes, I do have the manual Pete but thanks for the link. I always found the manual rather confusing when I was a lot younger

Cheers Tony.

Re: Futaba 9C programming help

Thanks a lot Steve, that's very kind of you. I Want to be able to operate the aileron plus flap as one aileron and then select flap when I need it.

Re: Convair YF2Y-1 Sea Dart

Hi Alex. There are loads of adds on ebay for different types and sizes of sleeving/tubing. Most to suit you are 3mm ID so can you go to a 3mm rod?
