Hi Guys ! We are all concerned about this : as we are overcrowded up there ,we start having noise problems with the neighbourhood ! If we want to keep our only runway , we shouldnt overfly the village and keep our evolutions on the western part of the airfield and observe a stop from 1 to 4 pm .Electric is no problem ( Except Guyos screaming flying wing more known as "AMBULANCE" ).We can compensate by starting flying earlier and as last week end , NIGHT flying !!!! Due to our increasing number we are recommanded to have some flying rools and dicipline. We are all concerned so please send your suggestions ...

All electrics I've seen so far except for Michel's Ion-X are useless, like flying paper planes, the simulator is more amusing ! I would love to see at least a 90 size electric conversion flying to be able to judge whether its nice or crap, and again what would be the price for such a conversion ? can our electric rocking fans give an estimate ???


Guyo # 8
5/9/2006
As always Alex, some people put their models on top of their flying expertise and some don't.
You simply don't need to have a 90 size model to judge if Electric is crap or not cos even with a 90 size nitro plane, there's always an expensive scale model that will make that 90 size of yours look like a paper plane!

besides that giyo,
people who refuse the idea of flying foamies are usually those who can't fly them...Laughing

Lets try to be all together this coming Saturday and between 1 and 4 we will have plenty of time to discuss the issu :lol. Among the suggestions as i say we can make it earlier around 9 Confused

This thread turned to a fight between pro and anti electric fans !
Alan, unfortunately I can fly electrics, one thing I dont like and dont care about whether with glow or electric planes is hovering, planes were made to fly and helicopters are for hovering. Also you can see that the trend is to go as big as possible with planes, you get more stability, better handling, more resistance to wind, better power to weight ratio, nicer to look at .... you may be flyig like a Kamikaze with your foamie and nobody will turn your way and even look at you whereas with big planes you attract attention. Leave a nitro plane for 20 years on the shelf, then you can wipe off the dust, fill your tank and fly, whereas with electrics you have to constantly pamper the still underdeveloped Lipos which will fail and loose their punch sooner or later. Get a slightly bigger Lipo with more cells and you will find yourself carrying at least a couple of lead acid batteries weighing more than 30 kilos for charging .....
Anyways, whats nice about our hobby is the chance it gives us to fight and argue Very and be alltogether Very so we can fill the time from 1 to 4 by doing Soujok and Makanek and arguing with each other Very

My 2 bits on various issues:

1/ For those of you into helis, there are very interesting cost-efficient medium-sized electric helis that came or are about to come to market.

2/ If we are to fly mandatorily to the western side of the field, we definitly need Safety Officers in charge of policing the visitor's cars who park anarchically on that side. Mind you a sign planted at the Western-most edge of the plot could ask visitors not to bring their cars any closer to the field. After all this IS Pete's private property...

3/ In order to accomodate the increasing number of pilots in attendance it might be a good idea to increase the bench surface. I believe those wooden spools used in winding thick electric cables make perfect benches when rested on their flat sides (Heavy enough to deter thieves while weatherproof). Just keep Sebouh's children away from them or they might end up as planks for the fireplace Spinny
Any idea on how to get these? (and NO, I am not referring to the children Very )

4/ With all those transmitters floating around, shouldn't we discipline ourselves into finally making good use of the frequency panel?

Don't bash me, I ain't got my flamesuit on!!

Hi guys, have finally made it through and I am know able to login.
I beleive that the issue submitted by Pete on this thread is quite important and should be discussed/treated outside the field enabling gather maximum ideas and establish simple effective procedures which will enhance security, create motivation and allow possibilities to fly with several planes/helis at the same time and safely.
Cant help but feel guilty about the restriction implemented (stoping flying from 1 to 4) due to the extreme noise produced by my machine(s).SadSad

I wrote yet another post that was lost because I was loggedout by the server. This is quite dishartening. I will express my opinions verbally on the field ( in case anyone is interested) Thumbs
MHN # 17
14/9/2006
Wow, that last one made it.
My suggestion is in short: 2 pilot stations at a few meters from the runway. All other details verbal.

Dany you shouldn't at all feel guilty about the noise of your DA ( I LOVE IT )Very you should try one of your BOOMERANG jets up there Very It might be the solution between 1 and 4 PM Idea I will be flying my 150 CC every weekend hopefully and get yours ready Thumbs

WOW !!!!Thumbs a Jet in Amaz would be great Very nobody will even understand that it is us flying it, they will talk about israeli planes flying over their heads again Very Yalla Dany ! do you have the courage to land it in Amaz !!!!


ACE Pilot # 20
15/9/2006
Dany if you intend to do it I recommend that you buy a vertical take off and landing [VTOL] turbine airctraft such as the well known Harrier. LaughingLaughing


akaram # 21
15/9/2006
Said, remember that you are talking to Dany and not to ... . I am sure that Dany can land it safely. I recommend getting a tennis net that we can stretch for safety at the end of the runway, this way Jets and ... can use it at the same time for the same purpose !

i would be temted to try the Boomerang Jet in Amaz provided I can find someone to fund my next jet!!!RollingRollingVery

Guys i feel very much concerned about the tennis netWink First from my best freind Alexus ! Then by comparing my name with the 4 points ( ....)Saouda suggested Shocked . With the money i paid for my expensive Menz prop i think i could have bought a Fishing Net Very. Thanks God tennis net cost less than PARACHUTE that some persons should buy as alternate landing technic VeryVery
As for Dany's night jet flying , i found my night interceptor Laughing very silent and very soft for landings Laughing

Pete # 30
18/9/2006
Hiba ! the temporary name for the dog is " RC " . Before Rouba and Alexus fed him it was " Biafra " after feeding " Tabssoun " and for heart reasons everybody knows i would suggest : " SPYKO " LaughingLaughingLaughing

Captain ! I am sure you were not targeted at all in the runway-net issue Smile everybody makes mistakes but those who are always trying to minimize the (Aircraft Size)/(Runway Length) ratio and complain about not being able to get it low enough to make a safe landing in amaz are the ones we are talking about.

As for our dog, I am really worried about him, he is getting used to us and we cannot be always there to feed him, moreover there may be people among us who dont like him .... I just hope he stays in good health and nobody hurts him. Who is Spyko captain ? and what is "i found my night interceptor very silent and very soft for landings"
Very


Hiba # 32

vey funny suggestions pete!!Thumbs basically the best name for "OUR DOG" would be Sceadu,that way maybe Said will start liking him a little bit more Rolling

Don't you worry Hiba!
I think Saaouda will fell in love with the dog, the minute he'll run to fetch ....'s planes from the valley, thus sparing Saaouda the trouble of doing so by himself, again and again!!!LaughingLaughing

Thanx Alexus , i feel know more relaxCool! I also agree with you about the persons you are talking aboutThumbs I also give my benediction for the Baptesme of our dogy " Sceadu " as Hiba suggested ! So please waiting the vote of the rest of the GANG Wink

Besides, he is not our dog remember?
He is some guy's, who drives a gold Nissan, answers reluctantly to the name 'Fady' although not Adam, yet came (all) over the other Eve Laughing

We're just free weekend dog caretakers !!!

I wonder how 'Your' dog is going to react in front of Sa33oud's heli doing the funky chicken dance of death? Do dogs eat chicken?

In every case, should you decide to keep the poor dog, I suggest we bring him a simulator to keep him occupied during the week, and who knows? He might become a "Professional" PILOT Wink

Thanks Hiba ! Thanks Captain ! you are great.
I am worried that those A--h---s with rifles in AMAZ can hurt him as they shoot everything that is moving, maybe putting a collar on him will guard him a bit against them as they will know he belongs to someone.I am going to get him one. Wolves are no threat !


MHN # 46

Attention required here: To all paranoids roaming around.
From having discussed this 'hunters' issue with Alex a few days ago, I can assure you that the hunters HE has in mind are all non-RC practitioners. Don't you guys go around now thinking any of you is targeted.

NO DOGS are allowed on the field.
Rule #2:
NO Collar for the DOG.
