    Thanks jbkiwi. Another thing I have been getting wrong all these years. I could have saved myself gallons of blood loss if I had known that before.😁

    Would be nice Doug, but I've got toooo many planes! Thought about putting my Graupner Super Cub (scratch built repro of the model I had in 76) or a few of my other 16 models on floats (nothing to a Chinese guy here who has 150 ARF models !!!) as I am just up the road from a large estuary which is the perfect (almost) spot for a seaplane (see Goog pic,- I'm the green house bottom center). Also the number of flying fields is rapidly diminishing, (in the large part due to whingers who move in next to a site -not only planes, boats as well- which has been there for years and start complaining), happened to our iconic stock car track (60 odd yrs) at Western Springs (also a large concert venue) in Auckland a few years ago. I occasionally fly my planes in the large sports park off to the far left of the pic.

    And as an engineer told me once, to avoid cutting yourself, always cut towards your mate !

    I find cursing very stress relieving under certain circumstances, sometimes prevents flying tools or models etc !

    Patience. That’s where I am going wrong. I thought you were supposed to swear at everything.😬
