I agree about larger images being much more desirable but I am quite happy to have them in the text and the size (640x480) which I think is the forum limit. The submarine below, taken at a Norwich submarine day and not my model, was simply resized to 640x480 and the quality changed to give a file size of 80.9Kb which is well below the 161Mb allowed. In fact I could have posted 2 pictures like this within the limit. What is the problem?

The moderator (tug Kenny) in the post above said that if I misposted I could delete the post within 30 minutes. I can find no such option & if I just edit away all the text it just tells me that I have made a mistake. How do I delete a duplicate post?



I believe the  'Delete button'  stays visible for a short time, which would allow you to remove your post.  (correct me if I'm wrong because my delete button is always there)

If is not available then replace your letter with just a  'full stop'  and we will know to remove the duplicate post.

I am honoured that you should wish to use the photo. Please do so.  :-))

I am afraid that whilst I took the photo I do not know who to thank for providing the subject!

The sub is called Resurexxi, and was totally scratch built by Paul Brassington, a member of The Association of Model Submariners. Paul has been developing this boat for a number of years, and I think I can say that it is one of the best performing subs around at this time.

Paul even designed and built his own radio outfit for the boat...not a fancy radio like you see nowadays, but one with a steerwheel and on/off switches.

A completey random thought occurs ...... vaguely thinking of Whales .......

in a pool environment would it be possible to control a model sub by sound?

to remain within topic - please post a 'too small' photo of anything relevant

You mean control the boat by sonic waves? The man you need to talk to about that is the AMS's tame electro geek, John Robinson...aka 'sub john' on here.

If he doesn't know...then there's nobody else that will.

I hope that he likes my photo!  Hopefully he will be pleased with his lovely model's celebrity status.

HI Norseman
    In answer to your question yes it is quite possible to control a sub under water using sonic link have started to design a system to do the same thing plus you will be able to use this in salt water or like you said a swimming pool, but i won't to still  have proportional control of rudder, and other bits like speed controller and other things but all so won't to be able to have on off functions using switches. Didn't see your personal message until 10 Min's a go have been busy with so many other electronic projects it will probably be a while before i finish it

Not so much by the volume as by the frequency {-)

No never seen a delete button but yes have been able to 'edit/correct spelling etc' posting within a 30 minute time frame.
Being a moderator is probably why you have a delete button.

Can I have one too %) %) %)

Off subject but important.

When you suffer some hearing loss it is generally in the high range that women use.
Verified to me by my female audiologist and explained to SWMBO that when i say I didn't hear you sweetheart she has to believe I am being truthful  %) %) %) %)

So Dave there is hope for us all, "sorry dear I am comming now, didn't hear you before" {-) {-) {-)

I too think the delete button is a moderators perk. I don't get one but I do note the full stop suggestion.

But if it's your own post you want to delete, the software won't let you report it to a moderator....

"you cannot report your own post, it doesn't make sense!"



Good point.  Not to worry though, as duplicated posts are removed without request.   :}

I think the postimage utility built into the forum works very well. I also use photobucket, but the postimage is very handy when you just want to quickly upload an image, and I guarantee if you post images in 640x480 or thereabouts, someone will pipe up and ask if the images are available in higher resolution.

The problem with Photo Bucket and other Photo storage is that they Crash and pictures then disappear of the site, also people leave or give up the hobby and delete there account, there are also the people who get a strop on and delete there pictures, and that has been done by some  members a few times, it gives you pages of red Xs.

 I will keep clicking.

One of the few things Mayhem server is good at is storing photos for the forum!
