1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Made my own spinner from a Mondeo wiper motor. I plonked std deeks on with a set of wings I'd fashioned from a piece of camping bedding foam in blue then sprayed up to match. It worked very well and brought loads of pigeons in for the shottie to despatch.

    Well Buzz, first of all thanks for your reply, well l was thinking of putting in a tape recorded crow call, may be head turning, even wing opening...the hawk deek l use now works very well but only on crow fly-t paths, it evan works on fields that crows are feeding on i.e. crows will not continue to feed while hawk is there, the farmer loves me to come down, He always say's dont forget ya hawk. any one else want to reply feel free, all input well come. Andy.

    Andy.....a very simple 2 channel, 27Mhz system would give you what you want. The head turning (45 degrees either side of centre) could be achieved by mounting the head directly onto a servo output shaft and the wings opening and closing could be done from half the movement of the second servo, the other half of the wing servo could be used to start/stop the sound player via a microswitch or that could be done from the head servo from a microswitch too.. The control side is easy once you've built the mechanics and you'd have around a 100yd ground range minimum. If you put the receiver aerial on a 4 ft pole you could get close to 1/3rd of a mile.
    If you're serious about this let me know and I'll see what I can do with regards to some sort of design and mock-up.
    The other thing here is if anyone is interested in a geared motor...similar to wiper motor but better, quieter and brand new, I have several here. Retail new at £90 but would want around £20, plus postage at cost. 12 volt, but will run on 6, slower obviously..similar output shaft speed to wiper motor....square output shaft.

    have a look in your local toy shop or gadget shop !
    i found a battery powered flying seagull (you hang it on the cealiing) and with the aid of a stanley knife, dremmel, an old broken little owl decoy, ect i now have an owl decoy that flaps it`s wings.
    it`s very basic but it does arouse interest from the magpies.
    very thin wire can be had from Maplins (easier to hide).

    Thank u Colinb, good idea, but to easy to copy, thank u for your in put, l will try this before spending money on controlled model's if l do make a working model l will be in touch personally, your input will not go unnoticed (people on this forum may think l am trying to pick there brains, being the the new kid on the block , not true) l originally had given this idea away to airgun hunters that had a mobility problems, i.e. could not walk the land,to bring the crow's in close, l only charged 4 copying,+p.p. most of the time l ended up out of pocket never mind that,
    more input please is this a forum, or a game station.
    Andy
