If 666 is the number of the Beast, is 668 the neighbour of the Beast?

Old Futaba servo wiring... by terrymiff Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 4 months ago
Hi Admiral RNinMunich sir, I was going down the route of building a 2.4GHz Detector/Meter until I came across this: https://www.banggood.com/Lantian-Mini-High-Sensitive-2_4G-Fr... It works a treat and for that price it is not worth running around getting parts for a diode/capacitor/meter circuit. Cheers from DownUnda

Prince Charming - Sam O. Berg by terrymiff Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 7 months ago
Hi Doug, thanks for that lead. I have since found that the boat is still intact and in a museum in Norway. Dagfinn Bakke from the Norsk Modellseilforening og Norsk IOM Klubb put me onto it. http://www.modellseiling.no/2017/09/09/sam-o-berge-minneseil... Grimstad Sjøfartsmuseum :- post@gbm.no Who says that the world cannot get along with one another? Thanks all. Cheers, Terry Smith I'm retired. I have nothing to do. I have all day to do it. Why don't I have any spare time?

Hi guys, I am seeking assistance with my search for plans of 'Prince Charming'. She won the World Championship in A Class 1935 sailed by Sam O. Berg of Norway. Any help will be gratefully accepted. Cheers, Terry Smith, beautiful sunny South Australia

JOYSWAY DRAGONFLITE 95 by terrymiff Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 months ago
I don't know how you guys feel about posting links to other forums (fora?). However, the rcgroups.com has a HUGE blog on the DF95. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?2437398-Drago... The big plus is that being an American site it is all in (almost) English.

bad day at blackrock by terrymiff Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 9 months ago
Have as much fun as you can. When I went in for radiation treatment I used to wear a Spiderman hoodie and complain afterwards when I couldn't shoot spider webs. When all of the hair disappeared and it came up to Australia Day, I stuck a temporary Australian flag tattoo on the big shiny bit above my forehead. All of the kids loved it when I went in for treatment. In remission now and still having fun. Don't give up.

Please help me. What is involved in the 'joogle' process? I have never heard the term.

HELP ME DECIDE PLEASE by terrymiff Chief Petty Officer   Posted: 1 year ago
The DF95 is too short at 950mm for IOM. I think that the Ragazza can squeeze into the IOM rules with a bit of tweaking. The supplied mast and sails fall between an A rig and a B rig in size. The mast is removable. If you decide to change the paintwork on a Ragazza you have two options. 1. Paint over the existing surface and add a bit more weight. 2. Strip the existing surface off and repaint on the bare fibreglass. Beware, this is not an easy job. The existing surface is VERY hard and takes a lot of sanding with very heavy sand paper to remove. Been there, done that. The Ragazza is a pretty boat and fun to sail but it will not stand up against the red hot competition IOMs.
