Re: 400ft Height Limit in 2018 Air Navigation Order - Update

Dave, thanks, and I'd say it was a pleasure, but that's pushing it! There's still plenty of work to be done to sort out how the registration of operators and the competency of pilots will work, but we're making progress. One thing that needs to be remembered is where there is a mention of 'competenc...

Mike

In the thread linked below I posted a series of screenshots that showed how to get to the PM screen and what to fill in. The full sequence of what you see and do was shown there.

Re: Pms !! Or lack of them being sent !!

Don't forget, when sending a PM, it must have a recipient, a subject and a message. If any of the three are missing, the message won't send.

Re: Pms !! Or lack of them being sent !!

Mike,
I've just sent you a test message, please reply if you get it.

When you type the message, are you scrolling down to the message box rather than typing in the first empty box?
That box is for extra recipients, and frequently catches me out!

Re: M/ship card

I know full well where mainland Europe and the Americas are, but international transport/logistics make no geographical sense any more. Apparently the most expensive part of the journey for stuff from china is the trip on the wagon from the container terminal to the warehouse once it gets to this co...

It's probably more efficient or something, like how it's quicker to fly to Canada via Amsterdam sometimes.

Re: HITEC 225MG Servo fault

Re: HITEC 225MG Servo fault

Is it something the servo does once and once only, the first time it is ever powered up, or does the servo do it every time its turned on?
