  2. fast-lad.co.uk

    Have bought a few heli parts from fast lad in the past, never had a problem to be honest even though as you state Rich, they are a bit expensive. Should also compare midland helicopters as well if its heli parts your after.
  3. Welcome to our RC Forums Joey

    That 540 is a bit tasty, what you running in it? Ross
  4. Jeti Duplex DC16 - DS16

    Very nice indeed!!!!!
  5. T-Rex 450

    I have flown a 450 & find them scittish...much prefer the Mini Titan by thundertigre, so much more docile, but up the throws & its fully 3D, if 3D is your thing...but not for me, seen 1 doing 3D, you've seen them all
  6. Trex 600ESP cam ship

    The wobble is me I dont have any stabilisation or any post processing as it stands, but please do remember thats only our 2nd time out with it..we have checked on the so called expert websites & we are kicking butt, things will only get better....fingers crossed!
  7. Bmfa Fee Increase?

    Dont get me wrong, we do have flying sites, but they are few & far between. Newton Abbot race course is used, but its 60 miles from me, here in North Devon we have 1 main flying site (Chivenor) & no spaces left!!! There are a few dotted about in the sticks but useless for anything above 20cc size due to trees & hedges. We are trying to get a flying feild South Molton direction which will allow some of our mates from east devon to make it. If you dont mind phoning them, that would be great Rich, remember we need some where South Molton ish Ross

  11. Welcome to our RC Forums Joey

    Hi Joey, a fellow FPV enthusiast...thats 3 of us so far Looking forward to seeing some video from you. Ross
  12. I was self taught many years ago at great expense, probably about 26 years or so ago when helis without gyros were common place!!! I gave up & started again in the hobby 6 times now, but looks like I'm here to stay this time 3 christmases ago my fiancee gave me a 4 channel heli for an xmas pressie & the bug bit again. From there I progressed to the one of the first Blade 400 3D helis, bad gyros & crap servos so it lasted all of 15 seconds before I crashed it. Not to be put off I bought a mini titan & pheonix flight sim. Within 20 hours of sim time I was flying circuits with my mini titan & then my fiancee started taking a big interest. I then decided to combine my profession (photography) with my hobby of RC aircraft & bought a trex 600E to put my canon 40D on. Things have progressed since then & I'm now experimenting with a home made front mount with full pan & rotate with a live video downlink. The fiancee flies the cam (though she can also fly the heli). Its great having a partner who supports your hobbies & actively takes part, she loves Hop Farm & this year (2011) will be our 3rd time. I also have 3 fixed wing aircraft. 1)Phase 3 F16...love it as the mrs painted it in the dutch display scheme, looks a beaut against the blue sky. 2)RC Factory Flash foamie, superb for low & slow 3D...which I'm no expert at..I'm still into knife edge circuits etc 3)Global SU26 with a 51cc petrol engine & she's my pride & joy, but hard to find a place to fly her. I have a gopro camera which will be mounted on the SU26 the next time weather permits. Not trying to spam this forum, but if anyone is interested in aerial films etc, then have a look at my YT page:- http://www.youtube.com/user/Macsgrafs For higher quality stuff then check out my vimeo page:- http://www.vimeo.com/user1049106/videos If you watch any of my full size airshow videos they would have been filmed by my wonderful fiancee, she loves video work & I enjoy stills. Regards Ross
  13. Bmfa Fee Increase?

    The problem is that national normally means London direction, no good for the people in the corners of this island. I'm sure people have many flying sites nearby, they want to come down to Devon...1 official flying site in North Devon & its full, so no new memberships
  14. Twister 3D Storm

    Nah you dont need training legs, they are for pussies get some serious sim time in, you have seen my mrs fly a trex 600E & thats without ever using them, I used them for one flight with my blade 400 & never again, it sharpens your flying skills & makes landings precise.
  15. Hurray, thanks for that Rich, I'm in Hoping I can add something useful to the forum along the kines of aerial photography & filming + FPV Regards Ross
