Re: Warped wings

What are the wings covered with Bob . How was the.covering shrunk. I left an eight foot model in small pop up tent once and it was a roasting day. They warped quite a lot but I devised a system which got them straight again. Cut a piece of wood about 3/8 to1/2" thick and twice the length of the...

Re: a gaffer tape and lollipop sticks special

Arthur, you can make lots of gadgets from gaffer tape and lollipop sticks.

I dare you to make this and show a picture of it.

Re: Head Office

Not by choice though. If you want to join a club then they are normally affiliated to the BMFA and you
must join the this outfit and pay through the nose for the honour. Why should one be compelled to pay for
two lots of insurance?

Re: More content at shows

That sounds fantastic Dave. Could I suggest a letter is prepared and sent to all our traders informing them of all the show changes that are intended in order to attract extra custom for them rather than letting them find out for next season.

Re: More content at shows

I am looking at this problem in a rather different way to the present list of suggestions, which are also very valid. We need to attract families who have youngsters who need to be interested in the hobby of building and flying model aircraft. What we do see at most of our shows is full of brilliant...

Re: The Global “anti-drone” hysteria continues..

Are drones restricted to the same club rules as fixed wing models? If not they should be. ie height limits, not out of sight and at most clubs a restricted boundary which you must fly within. If this not the case, then why not? Safety to the public is paramount and any model flown outside of the abo...
