  • ched999uk: Definately follow up. I once didn't get an interview that I had all experience and quali required. So I called them, to be told they filled job internally but they had another coming up next week. Would I like to be considered for that! I said yes and got the job!!! So keep trying mate you will get there.

  • Wyntrblue: yea i have been. and they say thanks for your call can i call you back... then radio silence... all very annoying, still im applying for around 10 a day at the moment and the as the saying goes. throw enough mud at a wall and some will stick.

  • DarkButterfly: Best to follow them up, you may get an interview that way
    May 24, 2018, 13:06:33
  • mo_miah: with the number of applicants they don't have time to respond to everyone, normally they say they will contact you within x weeks for an interview and if you dont hear back then assume its a no
    May 24, 2018, 13:04:05
  • Wyntrblue: why do prospective employers never ever call you back. as of today i have applied for 37 jobs in 3 days (really need a new job)

  • hoverfly: My mistake the Hornet is still going...[link]

  • hoverfly: F/wings  made one called the Hornet  it's not listed now so i assume it's discontinued.  I have 3 Ravens  in various set ups , they go very well with multirotor motors . If you laminate them they are almost  indestructible,  the only bit to suffer is the wing tips. Absolute bargains... ~~

  • mo_miah: raven does look good and cheap enough
    May 23, 2018, 16:24:54
  • atomiclama: Isn't the raven small enough?
    May 23, 2018, 15:22:24
  • mo_miah: nothing around the 2ft wing span?

  • hoverfly: Have a look at the Flyingwings  web site.  they go from   32 inch upwards.. :smiley:
    May 23, 2018, 14:33:05
  • mo_miah: Im tempted by an FPV wing, they all seem huge though
    May 23, 2018, 13:40:48
  • DarkButterfly: ::)

Quads at Olympics opening ceremony
« on: February 10, 2018, 17:56:05 »
Did anyone see the opening ceremony of the Olympics? Did you see the Snowboarder and Olympic rings in the air. They were created by 1218 quads!!!!!!

More info: https://www.wired.com/story/olympics-opening-ceremony-drone-show/
All 1218 controlled via computers not with each other, they all have gps and 20min flight time.
Looked very cool, even cooler once I found out it was quads  ::)

I just got a silly image in my head of 1200 random people being asked to stand there and frantically waggle the sticks on X9D's that are being handed out, while an intel rep's loudly trying to convince a group of police officers that they "Really ARE all being flown line of sight........ Honest".  :whistling:
I need a pay rise........ Though I'd settle for a reduction in the amount of hours I need to work to get the same money.
