  • 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..

  • 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 ~~

Is this why you don't drink and fly
« on: January 11, 2018, 09:43:28 »
Just came across this video of a guy playing Flight Simulator and flying into an airport where the ATC was controlled by a drunk guy:

Nighthawk 250 (SPF3, Mobius C, Aomway 200mw)

Are there really simulator games that are so involved that people actually just sit there at virtual airports being the ATC's waiting for someone else to come into land?! :blink

It's drifting slightly off topic, but a few years back I saw in my local newsagent wall calendar display rack, amongst the numerous Dog and Cat and the horror section (Cliff Richard and Englebert Humperdink) there was a :-

"Goats in Trees"  Calendar

Strange you mention goats in trees, I snapped the following in Kos  a few years ago. They were also quite musical , we asked the goatherd what was causing the trumpet sound effects and he showed us some bulb like plants they were eating. For an animal with hooves their ability to balance on thin bendy branches was amazing..   :laugh:
