Re: Bucker Student

Scary thing Robert, is I genuinely have no recollection of ordering the plans whilst in hospital :o . Likewise family and friends visiting. I had to apologise for anything I may have said while off my head on "class A". :D :D Apparently I was quite entertaining. :oops: :oops: Thats a grea...

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

I know a couple of drone flyers. Both insured and not idiots. One of them had no idea he had to register.

Re: Stolen Van HJ 61 NJU White ford Transit

I used to have a van with an isolator and a keypad requiring 4 numbers in the correct order, it was done in a way that even trying to hotwire would not work. I fail to see why modern vehicles dont have something similar. As for a switch for the petrol pump, my circa 1968 Morris Minor had one under t...

Re: Reciever switches

Crikey Tony. Take care mate, nobody hurt? As for the toggle switches, yes, they are ten times better than the miserable little slide switches we used to use. I tend to use the big slide switches, but as I said, I use two. SM Services showed me once the difference and I was was shocked that the stand...

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

So it may be necessary to ask for a photocopy or digital proof to ensure that people comply? Most clubs require proof of insurance, so surely need proof it is legal, and that person is registered? Otherwise the insurance may be void.

Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

some of our members should never have a driving licence...however, if, as seems to be the case, flying without registration is a criminal offence, and that then invalidates your insurance, then it is essential that a club checks for that. Its surely going to be part of the BMFA portal, which all our...
