Control Line Model Aircraft (RCL#1173)

Control Line Model Aircraft - cover thumbnail

"Our advice on flying has been learned the hard way by our staff who have all held the lines at some time or other with varying degrees of success. Starting as complete novices, everyone of them made exactly the same mistakes in approximately the same order. We feel justified in assuming that the average aeromodeller will be equally prone to find these same pitfalls in his turn."

Have tried to download the files Control_Line_Model_Aircraft_A.pdf. Filesize=24769KB] Control_Line_Model_Aircraft_B.pdf. Filesize=27410KB] The files download and open fine onscreen. Problem is when you save them to hard drive when you go to open them you get a message that the file is damaged and cannot be repaired. Anyone else having this problem?

I've just tried it at our end and the whole process from download thru saving to opening works OK. Hmm - not sure what the problem could be. I can see the files have been dowloaded a few hundred times so far and no one has reported a problem. Maybe we'll hear from some other people now. Might shed some light on it?

This happens a lot. The cure is simple: right click and 'save link as' and it works every time

I've been having this trouble as well. What's happening is the download is going along, then suddenly stops before completion though my download manager shows it as complete. No idea why. Downloading again usually works.

Thanks for the feedback, Bargle. Sorry to hear of your difficulties, but glad it usually works out in the end. Not sure why this happens with some files but not others. It may be due to differences in the way files are first saved by the people who send them to us. Will keep investigating.
