  • Bad Raven: I think a lot of us will have seen the published (leaked) training instructions to police officers on FPV, which was both incomplete and incorrect. Only the Little Hitler types will be comfortable treading any of that path!

  • Reman: Thought for the day - If a knowledgeable police officer stopped you and saw that you had a "600mW" VTX on your quad he'll get funny about it, But would even a VERY knowledgeable officer know what they were looking at if the same VTX had a professional looking label under the heat shrink that proclaimed that the VTX was in fact a 25mW unit?  :hmm:

Recycling Props
« on: October 08, 2018, 14:57:23 »
I had a clear out of all the old, bent, chipped, odd or otherwise props at the weekend. Rather than bin them,  offered them up on the local village FaceBook page to see if they might be of use to anyone for arts, crafts or whatever. There's someone that has some kind of hippy stall at a music festival in Aug 2019 that took the lot off me for decorations.

They'd be happy to have more. If anyone's got any old props who's flying days are over and you're gonna be at the next BFU or local meet or whatever, I'd be happy to take them off you and pass them on. Nice to know that my old props are going to be doing something useful.  ~~

Actually, I wonder what the recycling policy round here is for PC props?  :hmm:

I just sling all my old props in the recycling bin! It’s a green sport, even my batteries are charged by solar panels!

The Vale of the White Horse (South Oxford) say that they do NOT accept Polycarbonate plastics in their green bins for recycling. Worth further investigation.
 :angry:  :shrug:

The music festival people were delighted with the big bag of bent props I gave them and are happy to take more.

I don't tend to have "Prop chipping" moments, I usually go from "Freshly fitted props" to "Oh f*ck f*ckity f*ck f*ck f*ck, Two of my new tri blades have suddenly become mono blades, And even those ones are bent" in a single incident.  :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.
