  1. Sniff sniff.... Is there a bull in here somewhere?
  2. I remember seeing that somewhere, it was part built when I saw it - wonder if it ever got finished, if so, wonder if it's still flying?
  3. Great video - that ship looks in amazing condition!
  4. Sounds like a quiet and peaceful place - what would the neighbours think about it?
  5. Great read NR, thanks for posting.! The forum has indeed been a bit dead of late, however, I'm a permanent lurker, and have been for quite some time. I'm with you on all the comments above, however I feel the checklist, in particular, is important.

  11. Great video.! I liked the waste gate set up. What would be the rough guide to total costs for those 10 improvements?
  12. I wondered why they didnt get a drink, then all was revealed - They forgot the donuts too.! (you have to have a donut with any MacDs).
  13. I run a forum, have done for years. I also run a huge social media network (60+ channels) unrelated to helis. We keep the forum running as its an easy to search repository for the knowledge that is contained within it. We've seen traffic fall off a cliff over the last 4-5 years, most other forums - this one included - are suffering the same. The immediacy of social media has taken hold, affecting the attention spans of a lot of users. Most questions we see posted on SM tend to get repeated, users are reluctant now to actually search for anything they need, they prefer to post a question, get
