Re: An Update on the UK Regulations for Model Flyers

The problem i have with having to display your id number on your model is whats to stop people copying it and then flying how they like? Guess who the police are going to come and see? After all its your registration number so it must have been you.

Re: Simple to build first project

As mike says the Greenley or Lowley models are both good fliers and simple to build. My lowley is a lovely flying model and if you have low wing experience don't let the size put you off.

Re: New prject - DH Chipmunk

Re: New prject - DH Chipmunk
