Thanks to Ross Batten, William Busto and Kjell Fjelde for their encouraging comments on the site.
Welcome to Charles Anderson, John Beard, Eric Daniels and Mike Roberts who have made contact and joined the mailing list.
Kjell Fjelde puts the record straight for us . . .
issue 52 it says on the 'hotchpotch' page "Click this thumbnail
image for an enlarged view of this Hornet breaking the sound barrier .
. .". I'm afraid that this is not correct. It's not the sound
barrier that is broken. What you see is the pressure cone that evolves
around a jet when it starts to get near the sound barrier. This
cone is only visible when flying low over water where the humidity is
very high. This picture has been up for discussion many times, and even
been in engineering magazines here in Norway. The article also concluded
that this was NOT the sound barrier that is broken.
Thanks, Kjelli - it's good to have the facts. Nice to hear from you again, by the way.

Congratulations on receiving your well-deserved trophy!
First contact from Mike Roberts:
Delighted to add your link, Mike - it's on the suppliers links page.
There's a glimpse at Mike's website on site seeing, by the way.

Here's Charles Anderson from the USA
is great and it contains a lot of useful information. What I am writing
about is the Telebee 701 gyro. I have read a few bad posts on this
gyro and failures, but you speak of packing foam to protect the electronics
in the cube. What is your overall opinion of this gyro and would you suggest
purchasing one to learn with? I have a Raptor 30 with an RD6000 radio
that is part of my learning scenario. Which high-speed servo do you think
works well. By the way, I can get this gyro for 59.00 here in the US right
Charles must have been going through the archive - the Telebee gyro was the subject of an article by Frank Drecchio on #7! I have tried to contact Frank for his views, but the e-mail address I have is no longer valid.
don't fly helis any more and when I did my only experience was with the
CSM gyro, but I guess when correctly set up, they will each do the job.
If anybody can help Charles on either of his questions, though, please
contact him on firstname.lastname@example.org
. . . and this is Eric Daniels from the UK
Just found your site - well impressed.
To introduce myself I'm Eric Daniels of the Hastings Club you may have heard of us. I spend a lot of time browsing to find sites of interest to put in our Newsletter,which we send out to our Members bi-monthly (122 flying, 27 social). We recently purchased our two fields that we fly from (over 20 acres). All we have to do now is finish paying for them, hence the fact that we put on an Annual big show, and three others. We are fortunate this year to have some sponsorship from RCM&E, we also are aided by the local Hastings Council. If you could give us a mention in your site would be obliged, all in the cause. We are at present working on a website of our own.
. . . signing of now as Management has just brought a cuppa!
meet you also, Eric. Let me know when your website is up and we can take
a look at it on 'site seeing' and put up a permanent link on the club
