Re: Silly American question

This is definitely the most unexpected question to find here, but I do actually know the answer! Stoke is a very common place name in Britain, it's derived from the old English word 'stoc', which means settlement. Sub means under or beneath. (ie. submarine, sub-standard, etc.) Don is from the old E...

Re: Silly American question

Do not assume the UK place names have any sensible meaning. Also don't assume that they are unique; there are at least *three* Kingstons in England, and 10 Sandfords (And that's just in England, there are probably more elsewhere). You will find some info on etymology of place names, on e.g. Wikiped...

Silly American question

What do the prefixes stoke and sub mean? I watched an aws that was at Stoke Sub Hamilton and another at Bastingstoke (I apologize if they are misspelled). Are they just names or are they to identify a feature like Harwich port is a different town than Harwich? Thank you and I apologize for the silly...

Shipping from China held up?

Is anyone else noticing shipments held up by the coronavirus yet? I got an email today saying that my esc which I ordered two weeks ago and got tracking number for 5 days ago was going to be delayed by 10-15 days. I'm wondering if this might become more widespread and more problematic for ordering...

Re: ESC with built-in receiver - interesting?

These channels are mixed which cannot be turned off and braking is on. You save a couple of grams direct connecting it to the receiver but it is more th...
