    transmitter information
    It's the binding plug. You have to bind the receiver to its transmitter with that plug in using the instructions that should have been supplied with the kit. With your description, I would say it's an Frsky or Flsky system, as that is just what you described. Check out binding on you tube with your brand of Tx/Rx. Best wishes, Dave W πŸ‘

    Hi mate. If you really want to know. We were going to Paphos for a week from 24/2 to 3/3. On 24th, at Birmingham airport my wife slipped and fell over. She was picked up, dusted off, put on a wheelchair, and bundled onto the plane. Half way to Cyprus, she said "I cand move my shoulder and knee". The cabin crew got us a wheelchair to get her off and we hired a car to get to the hotel. To cut a long story short, we got her to a doctor the following day, and she got x-rayed. To discover she had split her kneecap horizontally in two pieces and her shoulder was shattered. We spent the entire holiday, plus an extra 5 days in hospital. The we got repatriated via Istanbul to Heathrow with a 2 1/2hour ambulance journey each end, making a journey home of some 23 1/2 hours. Jan is still in hospital at Worcester awaiting a full shoulder replacement this coming week. We really had a great holiday (and it's still going on, as she is going to be out of work for the next 12 to 14 weeks) and I am the disabled party in our home, and I am having to look after her, not the other way round as normal. Hope that satisfies your curiosity. But I could really do with a holiday (if we dont lose our home, as we cant pay the rent), as I'm totally shattered looking after her, and 3 days a week, our 20 month old granddaughter. Cheers, Dave 😴

    Formidable, LT100.
    Wooden Drifter Trawler, Formidable, LT100. Scale 1:24th. Long term build. Work boat built first
    RO-Marin Neptun
    Christmas present last year, built over a couple of months of weeknights and days off. I’m real pleased with her, the kit was well thought out and the instructions and documentation were more than adequate to get her built. Krick has done a fine job of resurrecting the old Robbe line. I need to add ballast to the stern and rig/flag the mast, but for all intents and purposes she’s done, ready to play.
    Royal Daffodil ex OVERCHURCH
    After a complete refurb the Overchurch was renamed the Royal Daffodil. My model depicted here is scratch built on fiberglass hull to 1/48 scale. She now rests in my workshop next to the original Daffodil circa 1918 after she gained the "Royal" status for her role in the raid on Zebruggee in WW1 1918 together with her sister ship the Iris. The current Royal Daffodil rests in Vittoria Dock Birkenhead laid up and will not again see any service again.

    Scratch build from photos and old Elco plans. working spot and port, starboard lights. everything made except from people which was a racing car pit crew team.
    HMS DAFFODIL 1918 later to become Royal Daffodil
    HMS Daffodil fitted with armour for WW1 raid on Zeebrugge in 1918. Scratch built on fiberglass hull. No plans, just from old photos. The Mersey Ferry requisitioned by Admiralty and later to become Royal Daffodil in recognition of her actions at the Zeebrugge raid.
