    No problem Marc, and "when" you win the lotto on Friday I will take a DS-16 Carbon in green thanks... At least if anyone reads the thread and a Jeti is out their price range then they can take a look at the mz-16. In terms of spec and rock solid connection, I for one think it looks the dogs b011!cks... haha

    Hey Brett. Well I am 100% certain of wining Fridays lotto so price won't really be an issue for me... By god that Jeti DS-16 Carbon line looks solid inside-out and such a thing of beauty (yes I am single...). Thanks for head's up on the Graupner, will look into it. Also thanks for the life/buy/RC optimisation cycle explanation....so true...lol

    16 registered for ELG by close of play yesterday. eSoaring in the morning slot has about 20. So both will be going ahead.

    Hi Marc I totally agree with the above, the Jeti DS-16 Carbon line would be the pick of the lot. Problem is, how many people looking at a £237 Taranis X9D Plus SE can afford to rather buy a £1,500+ radio. Yeah someone could hold off buying something and save up for the best of the best, but its going to be a heck of a long wait. Plus, if you are anything like me, buy the time I came close to having enough I would end up spending it on a new glider and having to start from scratch again. If I was looking at the Taranis X9D Plus SE and decided to save up for something else then my first choice would be the Graupner mz-16. At £630 it wouldn't take much longer to save up for and, as I currently fly on Graupner, I know how rock solid the connection is. The mz-16 has a whole new user interface compared to something like the older mz-24 Pro that I currently have. It has all the functions the mz-24 era of radios from Graupner was lacking. Or there is the new mz-32 but at over £900 its starting to encroach on the price range of a Jet DS-14 with all the extra add on software you may want. Brett

    I'm glad I went to Multiplex 25 years ago. All this messing around trying to get downloads etc. to work has no place in a rock solid Tx / Rx link and ease of configuring / functionallity. To my mind there are only two systems without all the hassle - Jeti and MPX. John M

    Frickmann F3K setup

    Yes, global variables are set by flight mode. I got round the aileron movement issue by having a curve that increases the aileron travel as you deploy the flaps. I also set a dedicated "landing" flight mode so I can adjust aileron to rudder mix, differential, trim and other variables. With the Frickmann program you have have limited ability to roll and turn the plane when the brakes are deployed.

    The English Open F3f 2019.

    So very pleased you enjoyed your first ever F3f competition William. From watching your flying it was clear to everyone that similarly to 'Midweek Mike' you have the natural ability to fly an F3f course very well. Just like Mike's, I am looking forward to following your progress in this exciting & addictive branch of our sport. I very much hope that you will be entering & sharing in the enjoyment of the coming 2019-20 Southern Winter league F3f competitions. Details of these comps will be posted on the forum in around a months time. Very well done William Stu.

    2nd hand market, in general

    Hi SP I should have put a smiley face at the end of my motor/foamie comment I'm sorting out ALL my "nostalgic" models currently......checking structure, checking batteries, checking plastic quicklinks etc I won't know how the weather forecast compares with reality until I see the 48 hours forward forecast on the 12th.......that'll cut my choices of plane(s) to six.......two heavy with ailerons, two medium weight/span/probably R/E, and two floaters (Amigo, Gentle Lady) On the PM of the 13th it'll be down to the two I think will be right ,with one heavier and one lighter just in case ......and I STILL sometimes get it wrong so I'll take the "final three" on the day and get out my favourite prayer mat I'll broadcast my prediction(s) on Thursday 12th probably, and call whether it is on Friday midday.....BTW fallback date is Sat 21st...... Here's hoping all the planning works......but then there's Murphy's Law to consider........BTW I won't cancel unless it's snowing Regards Pete BARCS1702

    I prefer to stay on top of the hill and throw my plane down it Though it's true to say I often have to go down and get it again. It's great exercise!

    Alright calm down..... Newquay is a awesome place, although I don’t think we quite get the same weather. As I get older I don’t think throwing myself down big hills on my bike is that good for my body. I still try to skateboard a little, longboard. Can you see the theme developing here? Something like never growing up?

    Frickmann F3K setup

    Thanks Paul. That all makes sense. I'm not a natural programmer: I've done okay so far with understanding the basics via the manual and by setting up simple models, but wouldn't yet know how to start from scratch programming in a fraction of the functionality needed for even basic F3K modes, let alone timers, altitude telemetry, etc. So the Frickmann template seems a very useful starting-point, especially the configurator for centring and aligning flaperons, etc, and reading through its menu-pages has given me greater understanding of the system in general. But thereafter the waters quickly get very murky! Aside from altering some basic variables (e.g. expo in the INPUTS page or elevator travel there - or in the MIXER page as the manual indicates?) I'm very shy of touching anything else in case I make a mess which I can't tidy up again! Therefore - unless I've missed a trick? - I'll just live for now with its limitations. By the time my flying skills have improved to the point where I really want full-flush up aileron when in braking mode or different flight-phase surface travel limits (*), I might also have gained the programming skills to 'hack' the template or write my own file? I can't make Sunday unfortunately. Work and life stuff (and some tiny balsa and tissue FF competition models weighing in the region of 10-25g) got in the way of my ambitions for DLG, and I'm only picking up on it again now. I hope to have the Auri airborne next week... and have the Hockcliffe Sept and Twywell Oct dates in my diary! Jon (*) PS I've just re-read your post above: are you saying that travel limits and other mixes/variables can in fact be altered independently for each mode via Global Variables?
