"call that a Quadrocopter" this is the real thing
from Clive

And the world's smallest plane? 

Hobby City Lost Model Alarm

I have one of these in my Wild thing and it goes off if it does not receive a variation in pulse width for 50 seconds, unfortunately it takes a large stick movement to reset it.
I fitted mine to the unused rudder channel and used two aileron to rudder mixes

I have had two replies about throttle disarm, this is included in many TXs as well as throttle curves, if all throttle points are set to zero, you will have disarmed the throttle.

Throttle curves, these are missing on a FF9 fixed wing programs, but can be set by using Exponential, or the 5 point mixer

Slope Flying  



A very pleasant afternoon with late afternoon sun exaggerating the autumn colours
Enough lift for us but the 2 paragliders landed out

It seems a shame to see September swallowed by the wind.
And more than that, it's oh, so sad to see the summer end.
And though the changing colors are a lovely thing to see,
if it were mine to make the change I think I'd let it be.

CLD was the best choice then (aka Heart-attack Hill, I'm told).  Good consistent lift with occasional patches of very good lift, plus several buzzards and lots of crows and pigeons to engage with in combat.
It was just me, Mick, Bryan, Pete and my son James with his brand new Zagi, which he built with little or no help from me. It flew perfectly with absolutely no trim adjustment - I didn't move the stick for a good 10 seconds from the first launch.  He doesn't take after me, then.
Mick: 'Don't do what I did and hit that sapling.'
Me (flying all-balsa own design Kingfisher): 'Ah, you mean that sapling!'  Luckily only a small dink in the leading edge.

A very good session


Was it this one?

For sale 

newly listed itemw

A very kind offer.  I have the following:
A Multiplex LS3 complete and ready to fly.  All servos and it's fitted for aerotow.  Offers around 150.
A pristine, complete and incredibly comprehensive kit for a Graupner W22B 3.2m sailplane.  For building connoisseurs and quite rare I suspect.  Also about 150.
A Multiplex Alpha 27 complete and ready to go with all servos.  Needs a bit of fettling but not much.  80-ish.
There's also a couple of Algebras and various others including an excellent Eliminator and a Sensor - all complete.  I have tools, wood, servos, snakes, carbon, you name it I have it and it all has to go.  Anyone who wanted to visit could restock his entire workshop.  But I don't think anyone builds very much anymore!
Photos attached and those interested are welcome to haggle.  The kit could be posted but the complete items would be collection only, though I'd rendezvous half way if I really had to.
Use this email and 01252 614319 usually finds me and there's an answerphone.
Really appreciate this
