Re: end of an old friend

Got to agree, Rob. A sudden decision, with no information backup. I foresee a number of incidents at shows this year, as pilots grapple with new technology with little info. I also forsee a shortage of pilots/models as those who have complicated setups on 35 decide not to change.....

Re: XMAS JOURNAL

I bow to the inevitable with 2.4, but was just wondering- how DID we survive the last thirty years or so of 35mhz, if it is just so inherently dangerous? Seem to remember the same things being said about 27, on which I never had a glitch! :?

Me too! NEVER, NEVER send cash in the post. This is not the 'Royal Mail' we used to have.

Re: Fun stuff goes here.

Very nice Tony, and a superb piece of mixing, but I'm afraid its all a bit contrived, done in a studio and mimed for the video! Really nice idea though...

Re: Vickers Valliant

Alan/Andy- about ten years ago we tried (and tried) in vain to persuade the committee to let under 18s join the LMA (in particular young Andy Brown) and were told categorically it would never happen as it was an insurance matter. Would your young 'un be flying on a 'B', then?

Re: 1/3rd scale Dawn Patrol Zepplin

Well I hope you have all had a good laugh now. Sorry but I just couldn't resist. Apologies to RCME as there was nothing to go up in flames to start with, I was dreaming. What is worth saying here is how I am just knocked out by the standard of the Dawn Patrol machines. I was at Osbournby at the wee...

Re: Team Gee Bee

Pacific Aeromodel Gee Bee Y. Most of us use 38 Zenoahs, but there are a couple of Z26s and some CRRCs - and a Laser twin! They are just darlings to fly, but getting hold of one these days is not easy or cheap!

Re: Internet Explorer

Have you got the latest version> IE8? Also, have you got the latest updates to Vista? If so, it may be a problem with your computer, usual thing is not enough RAM- Vista needs a bootful!
One thing you could try is Google Chrome, seems less hungry than IE.

Re: ht lead sheilding

In this case a piece of ali foil fastened to the bulkhead behind the servo should suffice. The servo lead should be braided, this will also help. I try not to put servos as close as that, vibration can cause problems.
