Re: Oratex v Solatex

Re: Your most valuable extemporised tool?

I often use a spot of cyano to hold a tiny screw on a driver- as soon as it tightens up, the glue joint breaks.

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

Re: Langar Fireworks Party

Re: Futaba 14 sg battery lfe

Thats not good for a Futaba Tx Alan. They have always been my favourite. However, I reckon I'm sticking to Hitec now, not cheap but not ruddy expensive either. Only problem is the 9 channel limit, but it does not bother me. As I said, replace the pitiful batteries on these 2.4 with something better....

Re: Off - Piste

Its fabulous work but I hope they dont push her too far- I think she is unsound at high speeds, and certainly when slowing down. Another accident is waiting to happen. Its a treasure.
