Re: What have forum members been up to?

Not really technical talk at all but we don't have a common sense thread. Those who know me will groan when they read this... https://www.gov.uk/government/news/deposit-return-scheme-in-fight-against-plastic Next, some government think-tank will host a consultation on putting milk in bottles then, w...

Re: Return to the Water

Their biggest problem seems to be that either they actually have no authority whatsoever, or, if they do, they don't have the balls to wield it. Same thing at the end of the day, which is why it's so unlikely they'll ever sort themselves out to the point where Bluebird can actually run on Coniston W...

Re: Isle of Bute

Hi Andrew, The team have their accommodation sorted, thanks, but I'm sure there will be many more people wanting to book up between now and Aug so we'll point them at those who've offered places to stay. Mike, I wonder if this needs its own thread so these offers don't get bumped ever further down t...

Re: Technical Talk

Don't forget also that we haven't filled the sponsons with expanding foam, which saves about 36 kilos at the front end. Plus, we have the option to tweak the thrust line a little in our favour by adjusting the angle of the engine. Only a degree or two before the inlet trunk becomes the limiting fact...

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

I don't do social media but l'm sure it doesn't need me if the idea is going to fly... Pardon the pun. Would be glad to write them a letter on a piece of paper they can keep for posterity. 😄

Re: Bluebird & Other Scale Models

I would support it but for all this logging in and having a Lego ID. Mmm, more spam emails with their latest offers and my email address shared with Lego partners. No thanks...

Re: Isle of Bute

There's a find accommodation page on the Visit Bute website, which is linked from our homepage, or a quick Google might be the answer.

Re: Technical Talk

It matters not who put the connections in. Fail as a team, succeed as a team. That's how it works.

Re: Technical Talk

Got it - Checkie's diagnosis was bang on - two wires in the wrong pins in the supply to the selector valve meant that in one direction we had the single, relevant solenoid firing but in the other, both were energising causing a very unfortunate situation in the hydraulics. The selector valve is desi...
