October 2004 News - "On the Road Again.........."

21/08/04:  As we have recently changed hosts, there have been and will be a number of changes happening.  In the 'has changed" we've got a brand new Message Board, Guest Book, and Chat Room.  (The downside being that we've had to start again from scratch in those features).

The new host is providing us with much more space and bandwidth than the old, so we're going to be able to expand without worries about cost for a while.  The new host is also providing some neat new features and add-ons, which I hope to get implemented over the coming months.

July 2004 News - "Long overdue update....."

21/07/04:  Well 2004 didn't get better, it got BUSIER!.  Work, family and other commitments have made serious inroads into my available free time, and the site has suffered for it.  I'm trying to get some time in to start updating, so I've started by introducing a new review page to the site.

January 2004 News - "Happy New Year Everyone!!"

15/01/04:  Added a feature news item on the ModelTek AH-64 Card Apache.

01/01/04: Well December 2003 was a bit of a hell month for me, and nothing got done on the site at all.  This year will be better!.  I decided to start the new year with a bit of a whoosh and a roar.  I have updated the Brands and Models page and the MicroHeli News page.  I've also just completed and posted my first review - the MS Composit Hornet II review.  As I hope to be able to do more reviews in the future, I've added a new "Reviews" menu item to the main menu.  Stay posted for further developments...

SIte Status

Site completed!  Well sort of :).  All the basic framework is complete.  Articles have been entered on every page, and all features are fully functional.  Of course the site will never actually be complete, as it will continue to grow and evolve as time passes, so keep checking back.  Some of the pages are a little 'light' on content at the moment, but don't worry I'll keep adding to them as time allows.

From here on in, this status area will keep you posted on where the site is at.

Up - indicates the feature or page is fully functional and ready to use.

Under Construction - indicates that the feature or page is being updated or modified.  These pages will be available, but be aware that they may have strange formatting, or missing parts and features until the status returns to Up.

Down - indicates that page or feature is broken or unavailable. We hope not to have any of these!
