Remember, any idiot can fly a straight line, but it takes an expert to handle curves
Finally the wind changed to SW & I tested my radio controlled bomb dropping mechanism at our local slope in Winchelsea. I tested it using my old faithful SAS Wildthing, a model I am used to and don’t mind sacrificing in the name of foolishness (not that I was expecting anything bad to happen!?!) Continue reading
I always start these things by putting the images in first, it’s the only way my poor little brain can produce such a level of nonsense.
The first print failed badly. After much head scratching I realised it was because I used ‘components’ when making the model (which is a really good idea normally!) so I ‘exploded’ the model until it had no components in it. Continue reading
I’ve been meaning to make a bomb dropping mechanism for a while now, probably about 25 years! I’d like to say I carefully researched it etc. but I just thought of an idea and went for it. I went with a sort of box that splits in half to release its payload and is small enough to stick on the side of my SAS Wildthing (hopefully, can’t say I’ve researched / measured that either – live life by the seat of your pants!!)

I go flying with a bunch of wonderful piss taking, funny, ridiculous, techy, corny, unforgiving, insulting, vicious, idiots that make me laugh until I cry every time & go slope soaring – a guaranteed escape from ‘life’! My flying buddies really are the best in the world! Continue reading
Because MS isn’t the end, just a different way to get there – Wheelieman hits Fairlight Firehills for more Tomfoolery, there was no wind for flying our gliders, plenty of mist, we gave it a few launches but had to surrender…! Continue reading
Fairlight Firehills, SW 15-20 mph. 12th April ’15 – Some sunshine, lovely day!
By the time Robus & I had got there, Jim, John & Dave had been bashing for a while. The wind wasn’t quite on the slope, sightly SW makin Continue reading
I bought this unbranded (Q5?) mini camera a couple of weeks back for a spot of aerial photography and have taken it out a couple of times now so think it’s time for a quick review. Continue reading
Found this nifty website for storing the location of your injections! Unlike other apps it allows you to add photo’s of your body bits and even indicate where blemishes are so you can locate areas where you haven’t injected in a while. Continue reading
Remember this one? Scrapheap Challenge making bombers using radio control gear and the usual crap they find in the scrapheap.
