Re: East Coast American Road Trip Advice

By USA standards that's a rather short road trip :P
Well worth watching is the film https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1153075/

Re: 6.6 life battery’s, versus 6 volt servos

I seem to remember that Futaba say that they are not rated for 7 volts as kicked out by a fully charged Life battery :(

Re: Electronics whizz needed, Oxfordshire area

If you need something to mount the solder pin sockets on then try Verostrip, this is srbp board drilled with holes to suit with strips of copper on for soldering to.

Re: More content at shows

Especially considering the new Cosford show format, can we please make sure that the BMFA bring the simulator trailer and can we book BBC Breakfast's Mike Bushell ! A nice slot on Sat morning should work wonders for the numbers attending ! Picture the scene, Dave's Vulcan, Mike asking if he can have...

Re: Show helpers and pilots

For those with helpers that are not yet pilots, how about having 2 duty pilots ( a mode 1 and a mode 2 ) available at the pilots box ? Lets say for example there are 20 Dawn Patrol in the air, is it really needed to have the 20 helpers ready to grab the TX rather than retreat to the pits area until ...

Re: Cheddar Fly-in 2019

Cheddar can be used as a base for visiting Woodsprings and / or Yeovilton airshow on 13th July so the dates look good. Visits to Cosford 6-7th, Yeovilton 13th and Woodsprings 14th are possible :) Personally as a weekend day visitor to Cheddar it is not ideal as shows get in the way lol Can it be a 2...
