    Immaculate AVALON full house swop

    Tony, I have a 2 meter Whisper Performance (in green) Kevlar and carbon full house glider with a winch hook already fitted. These retail at £539 empty, it has quality MG servos all round, in immaculate condition, I don't get to the coast to glide it any more. As new, in budget bag. I see you have many 2m gliders but if this floats your boat, let me know Regards Shayne

    Southern Winter League 2019/ 20

    Hi all, next Sunday 24th Nov is the next date for the Southern Winter League. The first of Stuart's awaited spine surgery operations has now been booked for this Wednesday, so he has contacted several volunteers to bring the equipment, make a slope and weather call, and run the day. Stu - we wish you well. Please can you register your interest by PM to me or on this thread, including which locations you can attend (White Sheet or Eastbourne). Weather call will be on Friday. Nigel

    UPDATED - THE FUTURE OF ESC’s for F5J ?

    Nice one Mike. Well done and thanks for posting your feedback. Close to 300 people have now downloaded the "How To" Notes on this subject. It would be helpful if a few more people provided some feedback on which Drone ESC's they have tried and if it has been successful. Colin

    Drone & Model Aircraft Code

    Anything flown under treetop height should be exempt. Me flying my Champ in a public park under treetop height isn’t going to affect aviation in the slightest...

    Drone & Model Aircraft Code

    Paper aeroplanes might be a grey area because it does include free flight...

    Drone & Model Aircraft Code

    as I recall the CAA had to issue clarification that it didn't include darts/paper aeroplanes/frisbies and the like.

    Drone & Model Aircraft Code

    Just read CAP 1763 and it states the FRZ applies to ALL unmanned vehicles. Even small 'Toys'.

    Drone & Model Aircraft Code

    Can't remember where I read it but I thought FRZs only applied to multi rotors and camera platforms (though not sure if it explicitly said FPV). Flying a fixed wing model LOS without a camera wasn't included.

    Drone & Model Aircraft Code

    Ok, so 90 views and no answers... I've re-re-read the Code and the CAP 1763 guidance. It looks like the FRZ restriction rules apply no matter how small the model aircraft. I wonder how many club sites it impacts?? The rules (in 4) on distance to people, >1000 crowds, built up areas, buildings etc, seem to apply only to drones and models that have a CAMERA, but: "Even if you don’t have a camera, you must still fly safely, so following these points will help you do this." In other words, it looks like the Code will be advisory when it's not mandatory. I'm sure that if a pilot had an incident and the model was under 250g the Code would be used against them. Like the Highway Code. With dog walkers, joggers etc, the 50m rule may be challenging in practice, especially on a lovely day.

    Wanted - Needle 124 tails

    Thanks for getting back to me it is most appreciated. I also have a pair of tails that are relatively easily repairable I was just being lazy as not much time or enthusiasm to do so. I am now in contact with Thuro. Thanks again Neil

    [SOLD] - Wanted - MKS DS6125 servo (or gears)

    I asked Neil at Hyperflight this question. He said no. In particular, the output shaft is different. I have had two offers now, which should be enough to keep planes in the air, so I’ll close this down. Thanks to all!

    Don't the KST gears actually fit now I think about it?

    Silent flight at the BMFA AGM.

    Thanks to all of you who made the effort to put on this display, it all helps to raise the profile of silent flight and BARCS with the BMFA

    Lol no worries. Avalon is a Super Ava Pro with Ailerons at 3.7 or 3.8m depending on the info available on the net. It's not just a Super Ava Pro with ailerons though it's designed specifically. Very easy to fly, I have flown one once before but not my one, huge presence. mine weighs in at 1800 grams, this is not heavy for this plane and it will glide forever. It's just not the latest mouldie out there but it is a brilliant model. Without going and finding all my spec sheets I'm running a HET 2W with a Konotronik gearbox, suitable size spinner(s) 3 sets of blades (New), Jeti 44 and Jeti 77 (New) esc, ultra guard 430 (New) failsafe back up, two new Tattu 4S 1800's. XT60 connectors. Think it pulls about 600W, again I need my sheets to confirm. It really does need to go flying as it's a criminal waste just sat here. If I want to fly comps I have enough good 2m models to do this. If I wanted to fly F5J comps then I need more than the one model. I did have a prototype of another model but this went to a forum member a while back. If anyone wants more specifics etc just drop me a line but I'm at the hospital for most of tomorrow so it'll be tomorrow evening or more than likelt Tuesday morning when I get back to anyone. Cheers, Tony
