Yes, if Nathan was three feet taller, or I had more hair...

It's a great photo, thanks very much Scott.

Dave: The next AWS should be around the end of June - that's 4 months away, which is about right for a thrice-yearly event...
There has been some discussion about moving it to July to avoid GCSE's etc, but then it clashes with summer holidays, so you can't please all the people all the time.
The AWS has traditionally been held around the end of February, June and October. Sometimes the dates move a bit due to hall availability, half term dates etc.
Consequently, RRC "should" fall in April, August and December. For obvious reasons it is usually April, September and January!

I found this very strange:

When I was about to be 13 I think, AWS13 was held, but at AWS15 I was 15 years old! How did this come together? Did they have a unussual delay in the time scheme or what?

Feel free to use any you want, and if you want the full size version, throw me an E-mail, I don't have enough webspace left to host them all in full size :P

The receiver on the right is what a Hitec Feather looks like (minus the crystal). The receiver on the left is what Antipathy's Hitec Feather looks like now!

(1) is where the small transistor ended up, stopped only by the IC.
(2) is where the small transistor is meant to be.
(3) is where an even smaller resistor is supposed to be - I don't suppose anyone found a resistor after the event? :wink:

This was the work of MBY during the tag-team competition. What are the chances of the blade missing the crystal and wiping these components off the board?

Anyway, at least it looks repairable when I have figured out what the missing bits are...

Actually Gary, I had a similar experience with MBY! Zatoichi's Hitec feather took a good few hits on the same end as Antipathy's and guess what? I now have a loose transistor and resistor but a completely unharmed crystal. Maybe MBY should move the blades upwards a little. lol.
