You've done the right thing by joining a forum Anthony ... I'm only on the Wirral & sometimes fly slope soaring off the Great Orme. .... I have a local testing site at Thurstaston & I travel to Swinderby to fly with with our boss moderator, Garry .... you'll get all the help you need here.... Welcome mate. :)

Why struggle for perfection?...just cheat & copy me.:-)

So what's the new purchase Anthony? .... give us all the gory details & you'll get the best advice ..... whatever you do... don't just go out & try to fly alone for the first time .... many have tried, few have succeeded.

Pol.

A warm welcome to this madhouse Antony. I am glad you have decieded to join a club, best thing you can do, and the second best thing is to get BMFA insurance before you try to fly

Enjoy yourself here, we do.

Looking through the beginners thread, I also see there is a newbie thread, I have also seen a introduce yourself thread, could these two threads be combined? Boz :)

They could Boz, but not a good idea.
How do you go on if the Newbie is a very experienced modeller but just a newbie to this forum ??

Morning boys and girls, re my post on topic merges, I thought the forum costs related to the number of threads, and space used etc.
I a novice at computer stuff and thought combining threads and deleting dead threads would save money for the admin team, however as usual I was wrong, as garry have pointed out In a pm.
My thoughts only objective was to try to cut costs, nothing more.thanks for looking, boz :)
Thanks: Firewood

Not "wrong" I think Boz. Just like all of us you can't know everything, and asking helps learning reasons too.

Have a nice Day, unless I don't like you.

if you are calm and collected when all about you are going berserk - you've missed something important!
