Hi Dave, yes it a shame , the way I tend to tell new members is, if you buy it from a shop as a kit or from a plan,, if you need to mend it, you have an idea of how to go about it, you put it together yourself. If you buy ready made models you may not know how to mend it if it goes wrong. But there is usually some one to help out if needed, which is always nice to know.
We sail at Margam country Park , just out Swansea, South Wales. We sail on Thursday and Sunday morning. We have the use of two lakes to sail on, and the park has good parking and cafe facilities Good banter and fun is had each week amongst the members.we sail all sorts of boats, and yachts. If you are planing a trip down this way, bring your boat and join us for the day. Cheers for now. Ken.

Does anyone know how to change the switch on the Aura 650 please? I'm asking for a friend who does not have internet. He is having trouble with the electrics, and we come to the conclusion, that it is the switch that is at fault. Thanking you in anticipation. Ken.
[Score: 8/10] 27" Wee Nip Powered by NiCad (6v) 2Amp/h Batteries Controlled Through Scratch build ESC - Comments: As before, different to sail a single sail as compared to a Bermuda rig . Still, it's fun and easy to sail. Cheers. Ken, thanks for the tip to send a picture as well. I know know how to do it, thanks To Doug.
Hi, if you look on u tube, you will find lots of videos of how to solder, the thing is,, they make it look so easy! I couldn't solder for toffee, until a visit to utube. Have a look, you will be surprised. Cheers Ken
Hi , B.M.F.A. Do do a single person insurance scheme. I think it's called country member. Through them you are covered for all Model activities. I know it's predominantly for flying but if you do not fly the cost is cheaper. Worth while giving them a telephone call to find out the details.They are very good at explaining things to you, and make it easy to understand. Hope this info is of use to you.cheers, ken.
Hi to all Vale of Glamorgan model boat club members. To day is the first Saturday of the month, so this means Breakfast club at the CymCiddi Barry, 9am meet. Then on to the Knap lake for sailing, and the free prize draw. Be there or be square. Cheers for now. Ken
Hi all, I sail at The knapp lake in Barry, and we have just found out that there are going to be new telephone masts sited at the edge of our lake. Question is,, will these new telephone masts effect our 2.4 transmiters?? Cheers , Ken
