  2. I’m away for this one. Hope the weather cooperates for you...
  3. Just been window shopping/dreaming for a new TX and came across the new Taranis Special Edition. Has upgraded Hall sensors on joysticks along with upgraded switches (and a DLG launch switch on left hand side top of TX), a menu wheel for faster screen navigation, increased range, removable antennae etc. Also uses the new *ACCESS protocol". https://www.t9hobbysport.com/taranis-x9d-plus-se-2019-2.4ghz-transmitter-taranis-x9d-plus-se-2019---night-blue Seems like a fair bit of bang for buck, but I am still concerned about the build quality from past experience with my X9D plus standard. To be fair most issues I had with my one where down to user heavy hands. I think that the new upgrades should address past weaknesses ( gimbals, antenna, internal components like gimbal springs etc). Case still looks like cheap plastic, but money has to be saved somewhere I guess. I hear it's early days for the new ACCESS protocol and first time buyers might be beat testers of sorts until any kinks are ironed out. I also hear we are going to be hit by a Extinction Level Event meteor soon... Also not sure if supports the Frsky G-RX6 receivers. What do you ladies and gentlemen think?

    Hi SP A lot of the searches on Google end up revealing unusual results - the secret, for me anyway, is to remove any word from the search that could be mistaken or misconstrued.......for example, your search shouldn't have been for "Algebra spoilers" as there are no such things! Dick Edmonds NEVER suggested you fit proprietary airbrakes to your Algebra.....and especially not "spoilers" Is it possible you had been looking forward to your next sip of the "instant amnesia" in a glass, rather than thinking if your search could be misconstrued? No? Keep trying, you'll get it one day........a good friend of mine says he always uses the search parameters that his 10 year old eldest grandson would use Never fails!! Regards Pete BARCS1702

    2nd hand market, in general

    Hi SP NO, that's why the Solius is in the loft.....I quite simply CAN'T put it together one handed These days my first question to any seller is "How is the (four-servo) wing attached to the fuselage?" If they say "You just push the "D" connector (or MPX "greenie") on the wing into the "D" connector (or greenie) on the fuselage" it's a 95% chance I'll buy whatever the plane is, sight unseen Hey ho!

    My next search was for Algebra Spoilers... Let your imagination go wild! I think OFCOM are homing in on me as we speak

    Does that have the same wing attachment arrangement? Once spoilt by the simplicity of the Cularis my Radian Pro and several other full house gliders never got a look in!

    Hi SP Couldn't do a Cularis but do have a Solius in the loft doing nothing that I might want to part with....... Regards Pete BARCS1702

    Hi SP The Algebra 8 has a canopy airbrake.......all the other Algebras have wing mounted brakes.... Don't look for ANYTHING on Google after you've had a few whiskies.......especially DON'T Google models Regards Pete BARCS1702

    Oh my days, Don't Google “Algebra RES” after a few whiskies. Just don’t go there!

    I’ve got the servos. Just need an Algebra now! Just kidding, Pete! I am looking at adding airbrakes or spoilers though. Did you say it goes on the fuselage? Can’t think how to do that. Might have to consult google!

    I’d like another Cularis. Is that vintage now???

    Nice flying CirrusRC - are you using a Tx type input? I can't cope on the tablet - no centering springs. My fave bad weather fallback is air guitar. You can pick one up on eBay for a tenner or less..... After a few hours of practice I'm pretty confident on some of the Genesis repertoire.....

    Hi John Sorry mate, exactly what I HAVEN'T got! The trigger point for "Beadle's bounty" is if you're building an Algebra, preferably a rudder/elevator version, and even more effective is "I only need XYZ servos to compete my Algebra so I can bring it to ISA Nostalgia Day".......'nuff said?

    2nd hand market, in general

    Well the second hand market is working for me this week. Today UPS delivered a beautiful Multiplex Fiesta from a great guy in Germany I reached an agreement with. His description was very conservative and when I opened the huge box I couldn't believe what a beauty the Fiesta is. It has metal geared Multiplex servos all round and a new motor, speed controller, prop and spinner four flights ago. I know these classic Multiplex gliders are not everyone's cup of tea but I have to say I love them. Maybe it has something to do with never being able to afford them when I was younger but they have such presence in the air and do fly so well. Anyone got a Multiplex LS 3 they want to sell?

    Wanted - 2 standard size servos

    Blimey - so all I have to do is ask for some servos and Pete will put them in the post to me, instead of having to get my wallet out and buy them from a shop or online? What a fab forum this is. Pete I'll have a couple of hi torque, hi voltage standard size servos from Hacker please only about £120 each - I'll PM you my address. Thanks in advance John M

    Thanks Dave PM sent. Do I just need to put this on to my SD card and put it back into the radio?.

    That PicaSim looks good. Does it run on a Mac?

    Bad Weather Contingency Plans

    I never really got into sims. Used to like Phoenix for fixed wing and Real Flight for helicopters but since I've had my laptop fixed I've not reinstalled either... Might have to dig one out again and put it on. What is this PicaSim that you speak of? I'll check Google! Is it possible to get an adapter so I can use my transmitter with the sim?

    PicaSim. My keep you interested for a few hours. Sure feels like Autumn rather than summer right now.

    Hi All, A few parish notices ;- No pre comp flying please ;- In the interest of fairness for all, NO flying of any model types prior to the start of each days racing, thank you. Beware of the Bull ! . There are cattle grazing on the slope, amongst which is a very large Aberdeen Angus Bull. Despite his imposing size he is a harmless chap, The Byeway condition;-, The byeway leading up to the top of Whitesheet is in good condition having been repaired by the council several months ago.

    The weather has been awful lately. What else can we do? I got myself a sailboat to take with my when I go float flying. If it's too windy for the plane then I sail the boat! But what about rain??? I'm absolutely bored to tears now with setting up my DLGs indoors. I don't get chance to build or repair anything, there is quite a queue forming too, ranging from a dab of hot glue to reinstalling aileron servos. My little one gets all my time. I only get my play time when he's in bed! Indoor helis and multirotors (can't stand the term "drone") can only scratch the itch for so long... What else is there to do? (model related!) Tony
