Another bit of irony. The other day I had to drive to the next town for shopping and getting some things to my elderly parents.Given that it was a Monday, ordinarily I would have been on my home bound commute down that road at that time of day. I saw more pedestrians and cyclists than I would have seen under normal circumstances. I guess it's somewhat understandable given that lots of people are not working... what else should they do given that we can still go out for reasons already outlined. :cool:

 

Yep, we are seeing loads pf people walking down our road. Couples hand in hand, joggers, cyclists, the roads are busier than ever, replete with "exercising" pedestrians. As you say, if everybody is at home, what else have they to do other than gardening, jobs around the home and "exercising".

Its the teenagers that don't seem to get the message. I'm seeing young lads out with their friends, in pairs, clearly not from the same family. And my neighbours daughter, next door but one, seems to have her boyfriend visiting on a regular basis. 

Re RC cars. Had a Tamiya some years ago. Enjoyed building it more than driving it.

Saw this on YouTube the other day. A guy built an F35B! And was hovering it inside his house. Amazing. Am wondering if its a mini jet engine or some kind of ducted fan.

Edit: Obviously ducted fans. 🙄

MD500 - good looking whirlybird - which brand is it, Al?

It's this one, which is sold under quite a few different brands as far as I'm aware. Usually goes for a bit over 100 quid or so if you look about:

Judging from a quick eyeball, Al I'd say that MD500 is indeed under 250 grams. Carry on exercising your chopper, sir! :tongue:

The advert says 6 axis, but it appears to be a fixed-pitch heli, no collective pitch.. still fun though!

Mods:- I'm conscious of the 20 picture limit on the screenshots forum. I hope I 'm OK staying below that on this thread?

EDIT - It's good that the guy is testing the RC F35 indoors (kudos to him for his engineering prowess!) - the real F35 airframe is so ugly that it should never have seen the light of day.. :tongue:
