Shout box not ideal for discussions!  BMFA affiliated clubs do not HAVE to force achievement tests no more than they HAVE to allow any specific type of model. There are plane only, there are Heli only, etc.

I spent the day with my Dad today at his bungalow where we built him a garden railway,
So I spent most of the day playing with the steam engine below, I know its not multi rotor but you jut got to love steam engines  ~~ or may be it's just us olduns that have a passion for them  :rolleyes:
I might even treat you to a video if your lucky and feel free to download the picture and set it as your wall paper :laugh: :laugh:

Looks nice is it actually steam or electric  :smiley:

Gaza07

Thanks for the comment, it actually is live steam and runs on water and gas, the gas is used to replace the traditional coal fire which would probably be hard to maintain in such a small model, although there are coal fired versions about,
It runs for around 20 to 30 Min's on one fill up, and is radio controlled for forward and reverse gear and the regulator (accelerator) so you actually drive it  ~~

MadMax

Did you make a video or was you joking ? I would watch it if you did  :cool:

Gaza07

I did make a video but to be honest railway video's aren't to interesting but I will post a link when I get round to uploading it  ;)

Gav

I watched that series on tv ages ago called Garden Railway, where a bloke built a set in his garden over several episodes and visited other folks garden railways.  Does that make me an anorak? DOH lol anyone else see this series? was a good couple of years ago now

Gaza07

I saw a couple of those episodes but not all, I hope they repeat them  :rolleyes: watching that series on the tv doent make you an anorak, but answering in this thread does  :laugh:

Gav

cheers I just need a flat cap and note pad now

Gaza07

funny you should say that my dad wears a flat cap  :rolleyes:

Gaza07

Well here's the video, Im not sure you will be able to stay awake long, I was struggling  ;)


Gav

bet that took a while to build.  Looks neat and tidy.  Sorry couldn't bring myself to watch the whole 14 - 15 mins though.





right then where in the attic is my old Hornby Train set...........

Gaza07

I cant watch it all the way through either  :laugh:
Its about 4 years old now and could do with a bit of work it has warped a bit in places but not to bad  ~~

MadMax

Nice but I agree watching it all the way through could be considered torture  :rofl:

Gaza07


Gav

lol I can't believe you managed to record soo much footage lol 

teslahed

I want to see the train rigged for FPV - that'd be impressive.
One circlip short of a quadcopter.
 1 lobe short of an antenna.

Gaza07

Well you asked for it chris don' t blame me   :rofl:



:whistling:

Gaza07

Even my brother who was there said it was to long and very boring  :rofl: I was there all day and I thought I had cut it right down  :wack0
