  • Reman: Got stuck in traffic yesterday. After an hour I started using my phone (And an OTG cable) to look through the media files on a keyring of my old USB sticks. Found one that had the entire run of "Firefly" on it. I got through 3 episodes before the traffic started moving again....... God, That really was an amazing show.

  • mo_miah: Gav- if its a camera ship then TBS crossfire is definitely what you need, the FrSky has limited channels and telemetry options, TBS crossfire has much better features and more channels to control camera gimbals etc

  • DarkButterfly: My laminate arrived, the rebuild is coming along ~~

  • hoverfly: I coated a couple of Slipstreams  a few years ago  It stiffened up the wing nicely .On the down side although it prevented dings when i had an high speed"arrival" it left the resin cracked. and the glass lifted slightly.  Well stuck laminate stiffens the wing and is flexible..
    September 06, 2018, 18:26:13
  • DarkButterfly: I'm doing laminate, just put my order in for some, also got some balsa wood for the side parts, had to use a kitchen knife to seperate the foam from the busted wood

  • atomiclama: Thanks, can't decide on fibre glass or laminate. Like the idea of fibre for some reason, don't know why.

  • atomiclama: Anyone fibre glass coat their wings??
    September 05, 2018, 09:30:22
  • atomiclama: @DB well you obviously need a bigger motor and ESC, as flying slower is just not possible.  ::)

    September 05, 2018, 09:10:18
  • hoverfly: If you put a couple of coats of Eze Kote on the wing before the laminate it sticks really well ..no lifting.. :smiley:
    September 05, 2018, 08:47:37
  • DarkButterfly: If it makes you feel better, I’m going to completely refurbish my falcon Evo with new balsa sides and new laminate ~~

Harshest facebook group.... EVER?
« on: October 09, 2017, 20:05:32 »
Blimey. Anyone else use the "Drone Flyers UK" facebook group?

Just got booted out and hassled by the admin within 2 minutes for posting my latest vid with the note:

"Thank you for joining our group, you have been temporarily removed until we can confirm that you have permission from the CAA to fly FPV without a spotter as per the General Exmption rules for FPV flying?"

 :o Wow... not going to bother those guys with anything resembling fun again!  :thumbdown:  :shrug:

This forum REALLY needs a little red handbag emoticon.  So we can use it and follow it up with "OOoooOooh"

Anyway, Screw Facebook.  Stay Away, for the sake of humanity!  It was designed from the ground up by the deep state and is designed and operated by the TLA';s and the NSA. :thumbdown:

It was just a short video where I flew over the hedge to a school playground and chased some kids about. They seemed to enjoy it and I ';think'; I only hit a couple. FPV lens got a little smeared so it was hard to see too clearly.

Damn kids, they should be only allowed after registration of the parents.

And they should be tagged and weight limited to 5lbs. ~~ Not to mention the "Responsible Parent Exam"  before conception..

I wonder if it was a music copyright objection?  :evil
