1. Things you need to know about the new ‘Conversations’ PM system:

    a) DO NOT REPLY TO THE NOTIFICATION EMAIL! I get them, not the intended recipient. I get a lot of them and I do not want them! It is just a notification, log into the site and reply from there.

    b) To delete old conversations use the ‘Leave conversation’ option. This is just delete by another name.

    100g pitch acceleration for a model aircraft isn't that unusual. I fly free flight gliders and on release of the line the top guys are pulling ~40kgs; the models weigh 0.41kgs, so close to 100g. It's possible due to use of composite materials and the fact that there isn't a pilot on board - they are the limiting 'g' case.
