Thank JEno,

Ive still to isolate the interference issue so thanks for your support and advice.
Unfortunately some jobs around the house have taken priority and it might be a month or so before I can progress any further!

I am enjoying your build.
Double stack should not be an issue. I use it regularly. RFI can arise from it, but if good separation of power leads from servo leads occurs, it can be minimized. If you have not fittied capacitors to your motors, you should do so. What freq is your radio? If it is 2.4ghz, RFI should not be an issue, but induced currents from bundled wires can be. I hope this helps. Sometimes it is like trying to find a particular blade of grass...on a lawn.

Fixtures and Fittings / Brass props for Kort nozzles

Does anyone know if Simon Higgins (ex Prop Shop) is still making props?  I've tried to contact him to get some prices, but no reply. 

And I notice that the "new" Prop Shop is proving the same contact email on their webpage as I already have for Simon.

Hi there
Yes I've also noticed there's been little posted on this site I had some photo's I wanted to put on here when I put the post up with my Avenger / Hibernia that I wanted to sell and now I've got Windows 10 it was a different way of reducing the size of the photo and a mate downsized it for me. Trouble is I didn't know how he did it, CAN ANYBODY HELP as I've got some photo's I can post.

Keep the forum going
Regards

Kevin

This how I resize my photos in windows 10.

Open Photo
Right click on photo
From the drop down window click on "Open with"  a second window will open click on "Open with Microsoft office 2000" then click on "O.K"
 In the top left hand corner click on "Picture" a new window will open click on "Resize" to the right of the picture a new window will open "Resize settings"
Click on "Predefined with x height" click on the box and a new drop down window will open click on
 "Web Large 640 x 480 px"
Then click on "O.K"
In the top left hand corner click on "File" then click on "Save as" give the new photo a name ie "Copy1"

Hope this is of some help

Fred

Yep - it's not bad enough that contributions from members have slowed down;  or that we haven't heard anything from any of the moderators or Tugmaster for a considerable time.  Now we have potential new members lining up but memberships aren't being processed.

There is clearly some interest from members (although not as much as, say, 18 months ago), but it does seem like we have been cast adrift by the hierarchy.

Probably the solution would be for one or several members to put their hands up to become moderators / site administrators.  But if the current moderators aren't watching the site, then they won't know that someone else is volunteering to help.  But volunteering time won't be enough - someone also has to pay the hosting fees to keep the forum alive.

By the way, this is not a criticism of all of those members who have not volunteered to help out - that is, almost all of us.  I know many of us work full or part time;  some are of an earlier vintage without the technical knowledge that may be needed;  some are not in good health;  and yet others may not have sufficient time for other reasons.

I really do hope that one way or another this forum can continue.  It has certainly helped me with my modelling, and it can still help others - but only if it stays alive.

Des.

I received an email from a fellow that has tried to join the Forum but is still waiting (over a month).
He's a keen builder and was looking forward to reviewing some older topics but unable to view the photos.

I sent a note to the Forum admin but no reply.

Any thoughts?
Thanks, mike
