Re: 2018 Renewals

You can renew now, and the discounted renewal rate runs until the end of January.

The membership cards printed in January will be everybody who has renewed by then, so if you've not renewed by the end of Jan, you won;t get a card until you do.

Re: 2018 confirmations

We moved Cosford partly so we weren't clashing with RIAT and also Duxford flying legends, both of which are 14/15 July weekend next year.

Re: Spektrum 2.4 RX for 1/4 scale Bipe?

I've used these in all mine https://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdId=SPMAR6200 But they don't make them any more, or the DSMX model that replaced it. Something like this seems to be the current version https://www.spektrumrc.com/Products/Default.aspx?ProdID=SPMAR6600T

Re: Electronic Conspicuity, the CAA and Model Aircraft

It would after being frigged to report an incorrect altitude, but transponders are expensive, power hungry, need proper antennas and so on. A standalone box for a few quid that does ads-b out and can be properly programmed with maximum height of operation and 'unmanned aircraft here' would be a far ...

Re: advice wing tube issues

Is the tube through the fuselage a bit of bog roll too? If so, a far better solution would be to replace the whole lot with a slightly bigger aluminium tube & phenolic outer combination in the wings & the fuz. Another solution would be good fitting disks on the fuz sides and ribs of decent p...

Re: advice wing tube issues

Putting the wing root bending loads through cardboard into 'metal' is structurally interesting!

What's the span of the model? If it's not particularly big, make some ply rings to closely fit the metal tube and just glue the wing halves together and the tube to the ribs.

Re: advice wing tube issues

Richard, we need a bit more information. What's the metal tube for, what's the cardboard for? I hope it's not structural cardboard.
