[22:23] <Laurenceb> does the board fit?
[22:23] <RocketBoy> na sorry - Big EARS has taken all mu time up recently
[22:24] <Laurenceb> nvm, sounds fun
[22:27] <RocketBoy> I was way tired - I was dozing off at work the next day
[22:27] <akawaka> EARS?
[22:27] <Laurenceb> lol, sounds like a typical lecture here
[22:28] <Laurenceb> lol that wasnt as I intended
[22:35] <Laurenceb> its a rocketry organisation
[22:47] <Laurenceb> bbl
[22:54] <RocketBoy> say edmoore - you know all about servos don't you - is there any way to get one with a v small dead zone - say 1 degree?
[22:56] <fnoble> hello
[22:57] <RocketBoy> hiya
[23:16] <natrium42> hi *
[23:21] <Laurenceb> RocketBoy: higher quality servos have smaller dead zone... at least in my experience
[23:21] <Laurenceb> well futaba ones are much better than the equivalent acoms ones, and micro servos are worse
[23:23] <Laurenceb> there seems to be an unbranded servo in my parafoil, its just white with no markings... quite interesting
[23:24] <natrium42> lb, you got it from a bay?
[23:25] <Laurenceb> ebay? yes
[23:25] <natrium42> how's the quality?
[23:25] <Laurenceb> very good considering the price, the parafoil at least
[23:26] <Laurenceb> but the transmitter was broken, the seller claims he will post me a replacement
[23:26] <Laurenceb> it was just £15
[23:27] <Laurenceb> I managed to brake the servo horn, but I launched it off a 3 story building with the wrong trim and it dived into a concrete car park
[23:28] <natrium42> :S
[23:28] <akawaka> hmmm
[23:28] <akawaka> i recommend changing the trim so that doesn't happen
[23:28] <Laurenceb> lol you dont say
[23:28] <Laurenceb> :D
[23:29] <akawaka> little "Pro-tip" there for ya:)
[23:29] <natrium42> akawaka, fly any R/C?
[23:29] <akawaka> no, never have
[23:30] <natrium42> :P
[23:31] <natrium42> i have taken such a long break... need to do some sim training
[23:31] Action: Laurenceb just got propositioned by a very dorky girl dressed as a fairy
[23:32] <jcoxon> Laurenceb, you have to get out of Oxford
[23:32] <Laurenceb> my thought exactly
[23:32] <akawaka> how do you know it wasn't a fairy dressed as a very dorky girl?
