General Photography Discussion / EOS Slipping Main Wheel fix
« on: April 15, 2017, 02:55:49 AM »
My 50D suddenly developed an issue last time in wales, I'd spin the Wheel for the Shutter speed and it'd spin without gripping.

I did some research and found an article and it suggests using Superglue (  HERE ) ... however I thought this was a bit harsh (bad dreams of gluing the damn thing to the body) and a couple of others in the Comments had the same thoughts. Someone suggested Rubbing Alcohol so I read a bit more into it.

Needless to say I picked up some Isopropyl Alcohol ( only 70% proof but not drinkable :-( ) and after pulling the Wheel out a bit and dabbing some on the Main Dial, I spun it a few times and it slipped completely , now I'm thinking I've messed up Big Time but after a couple of minutes the Alcohol and grease/gunk it's "eaten" had evaporated and it's perfect !!

I know this ain't the normal thread for in here but if this helps someone else save £179 from Canon to replace the Dial or whatever from Lehmans .. I've done some good!

4000+ People on All Sides of the Runway for 2 great passes in naff light!

As usual C&C Welcome ..
(also trying some editing for the First Time)

1; XM655 had a nice crowd around Her

2; Then Noticed an Exhaust Trail drop down and then there was XH558 for the 1st pass

3; 1st Pass

4; Dropping a Wing (pain as this is into the Sun)

5; Turning away to loop around for the 2nd Pass

6; And Banking away to head to Leicester

Beautiful Sight and so glad I got to see Her again .. (6th time so far)

Engineering / Engineering View - Barrell roll !
« on: June 21, 2015, 11:59:24 PM »
I am asking this question as someone who has done a few in Small Aircraft ...

We know the Barrell Roll is done at constant 1g - so - my question is ..

Why not Do them ?

We know the Wing-overs can pull 2g .. is there something else here ?
We also know Our Lady can do them and Pilots referred to the Vulcan as having the Roll rate of a Phantom

(Apologies if this has been asked before but I couldn't see it)

Vulcan Village / Cosford & Dunsfold ?
