As yet, and trying to follow your instructions, I'm unable to get the lights - either of them - to turn off when the desired switch is operated. I think I'll have to video the screen to see if you...

Edge TX - how to program a simple switch?

Hi all,

Angry Problems with Dynam spares?

I bought a Dynam Hurricane 6 months ago, and a couple of the clevises were broken by me not realising how delicate they are. On December 16th 2021, I ordered some spares, along with some extra parts...

I think this is a WWI if not pre-war aircraft, with a single engine and chain-drives operating two props. I suspect it may have been one of the 1st flown by a woman. What it might be exactly I...

I expect it was due to the bewildering number of forums in here, and simply finding a "better" forum, as a new poster to RCR. I'm sorry to have run foul of the Mods.

3. Only known to have been successful operationally, once
