    transmitter information
    Hi Mariner, On the associated RX there should be socket marked 'BIND' or possibly 'BIND/BATT'. That's where you plug your 'lanyard' in for the binding process. It's only a shorting plug between the signal pin and ground which tells the RX to go in to binding mode. Can you post the make and model number of your TX and RX please. I may have the manuals in my archive. But the binding process is essentially the same for all 2.4GHz sets. It's necessary so that your RX knows the signature, and hence hopping sequence, of your TX and will only respond to that and no others. Cheers, Doug 😎

    HMS Devastation
    She was launched in 1872, and was effectively the first RN modern era battleship. I am thinking of modeling her. Does anyone have any good info, drawings, photos etc?

    Can't edit or add to boat in harbour
    Many thanks for your prompt reply to my moans. I am pleased that Facebook do not have any personal details. I had been absent from the site for some time due to personal issues and on returning find it has all changed. Being 80 years old you can imagine that I am reluctant to change! Full marks to you for all you do and I will shut up and have patience. I myself run two web sites (Hoylake and Southport MBC's) and do realize your problems. Keep up the good work and sorry for being a grumpy old man. Kind regards Max

    Your are right Colin - tried it on my Android and the same as you. I am sure that they will come along with a fix shortly. Other than that the site is a 'good'un'. Alan

    CNC boat kits...?
    Once the machine is set up, we run into the two classic workshop requirements - tooling and work-holding. We hardly need a powerful spindle or Dremel for cutting balsa, which is what I am going to start with. I am going to use an old brushed boat motor with a small chuck added. But I need an easy way to hold the workpiece. Here I am making up an experimental vacuum holder. It's sized to take a 4" x 36" sheet of balsa. I hope to slip a blank sheet in, run the machine and take out the equivalent of a die-cut kit sheet an hour later. Note the requirement for everything to be massive and rigid, so that items can be held exactly in a repeatable position without movement while the cutting forces are applied....

    New Website Has Finally Arrived!
    Private messages bug should be fixed now Colin. Also... some faulty hyperlinks and pages redirecting to the wrong place. Think I've got to the bottom of that too. @John, are you trying to post in the media section or the forum? Stephen
