For Sale and Wanted / Wanted - 2M electric model
« Last Post by Arun Horne on Today at 09:17:06 PM »
If anyone has a 2M electric model for sale I'd like to hear from you. Budget and spec flexible but needs to be in good condition. I'm based in Surrey but can travel for the right model. Thanks, Arun

Hi John

> I do admit to not being a paid-up member any more but back in the day I was enthusiastic and competitive. 

I do remember you flying at the Nats.

> I never touched a Tx for about 12 years or more!

No problem there, after a couple of flights you'll be ready to have a go at a schedule ... once
it's in the blood!

> My local club site is (and always was) unsuitable for F3A and I don't fancy a 50-60 mile round trip ...

Ah, that's more tricky ... not even for your Galactik 90? Is there another club per chance?

> I do admit, my Galactik 90 is every bit as good or better than the models we flew back in 80's

Way to go!

> You are indeed, on the 1988 list!

Err ... o dear ... I mean ... erm ... oh good!

Best

For Sale and Wanted / Port and Stbd 2M Vanquish Tailplanes

Hi, as per the subject.  These are the red/yellow finish.  If you would like them, they are yours for the cost of the postage or free pick up.  Incidentally, they are undamaged - which is more than can be said for the rest of the airframe!  No - it wasn't me that was flying it at the time!

I do admit to not being a paid-up member any more but back in the day I was enthusiastic and competitive.  After the '95 NATS I started building another 2m model but never got to finish it and eventually, over the next couple of years, stopped flying altogether.  I never touched a Tx for about 12 years or more!

My local club site is (and always was) unsuitable for F3A and I don't fancy a 50-60 mile round trip to a better site like I used to have to do.  I do admit, my Galactik 90 is every bit as good or better than the models we flew back in 80's

You are indeed, on the 1988 list!

F3P Competition News / Re: 2018/2019 competition and practice dates
« Last Post by Lee Backrath on Yesterday at 07:21:15 PM »
Just a quick prompt about the first practice session on Sunday 21st October (9.30-12.30). There has been zero response about the Alfreton comps and at the moment the only people who are known to be going to the practice are myself and John Day so all in all not very promising! If you intend to go on Sunday could you please just put a quick post on here to let me know. If it has to be cancelled I shall put a post on here by Saturday evening. Thanks Lee.

For Sale and Wanted / Re: SOLD*** Six Zippy Compact 5S 5000mAh lipos
« Last Post by Peter Jenkins on 15, October 2018, 11:46:10 PM »
You'll be lucky to get them in the post.  Even couriers won't take a LiPo.  Of course, if you don't tell them what's in the package you'll get away with it.  Only batteries coming from authorised suppliers seem to be able to be transported by post or courier otherwise it's no go!  Best of luck though.

Potentially I am travelling to Southend on Sea this Saturday I think this is the closest I can get. May we could manage to meet somewhere around there?

Unfortunately it is about 150 miles away from us, as we are near Dover. I’m ok with waiting in case you can get a local sale.

Both Clive and Yvonne worked tirelessly to promote F3A and were a driving force in the GBRCAA in the 80s he also promoted Aerobatics in his regular articles in the model press. I was contest director for 1986 Nationals and I had  in depth instructions on the wrinkles and pitfalls of running it during a 'working evening' at Clive's, his advice was most useful, a stickler for detail but he got things done. as has been said; great character.
