    Bad Weather Contingency Plans

    How is this done? I can’t get to grips with the on screen controls, I’d love to be able to use my transmitter.

    Frsky Taranis X9D Pluse special edition/T9hobbysport

    I couldn't be bothered to upgrade because of the cheap hard plastic case. It just doesn't feel right ... way more work to be done there. Otherwise I like the look and think it is reasonable value for money
  4. When do the entries close
  5. Two entrants and one will be the National Champion!

    Mike that was the first Pica video I found so posted it. Not me on the sticks. Last time I dabbled with PicaSim, I did use it with a TX.

  10. I’m away for this one. Hope the weather cooperates for you...
  11. 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?

    Wanted - 2 standard size servos

    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

    2nd hand market, in general

    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

    Wanted - 2 standard size servos

    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

    Wanted - 2 standard size servos

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

    Wanted - 2 standard size servos

    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?
