BMFA Scale Zoom Session “Whatever takes your fancy, a relaxed approach to Free Flight Scale” – Pete Fardell @ Zoom On Line
Jan 20 @ 8:30 pm
“Whatever takes your fancy, a relaxed approach to Free Flight Scale” – Pete Fardell

Joining instructions can be requested by mailing [email protected]

Details shall be distributed approximately 24 hours before the planned session.

Meetings will be recorded.

For those of you new to Zoom, here are a few notes that may be of help.
▪ Zoom meetings can be joined on any PC or MAC and most Smartphones and Tablets.
Each meeting has a Meeting Number and a Password, these are shown at the bottom of
this page, and these are used when you select “Join a Meeting” on your Computer,
Phone or Tablet.
▪ For PC and MAC users, you will need to first go to https://zoom.us/ and select Join A
Meeting, this will download a little program that is the Joining Interface. Once
downloaded you will need to enter the Meeting Number and Password. There will also
be the option of “Join with Computer Video” which you select YES to. You only have to
download this once, next time you join a meeting it will automatically load.
▪ Once the details are entered you will be admitted to the meeting and you should be
able to view the host and other participants on screen. Please ensure also your audio is
not muted, this is a small microphone symbol on the bottom left hand side of the Zoom
window.
▪ For Smartphone and Tablet users, you should download the Zoom App from the App
Store or Google Play Store and the joining procedure is much the same.
▪ Your microphone connection to the meeting will be remotely muted by the host during
the presentation, if you wish to ask any questions there will be an open Q&A session
after the presentation.
▪ If you have a pair of headphones that you can plug into your device you may wish to use
them. This is helpful if you have others in the room and maybe a TV on that others are
watching.
▪ Please note the meeting will be recorded and be available for others to watch at a later
date. If you do not wish to be recorded please let us know in advance.
▪ Times shown are GMT (London time)
The meeting will go live at 20.00hrs, the Welcome will commence at 20.30hrs
sharp! This will allow 20 mins for everyone to join.

Hi Pete,

I can only echo everyone else’s comments, it was an excellent and very enjoyable session, thanks for sharing.

I’ve sent you a PM with some details of the Air Britain “ Bleriot over Britain” book that was referenced tonight too.

Best wishes,

Paul.

Russ, you do not have to show your face... just do not turn your video on. It is by default off when you join, as is your microphone...

Really easy actually

Thank chaps! I’m quite relieved it’s done, but must admit I enjoyed myself too. Made it a lot easier knowing there were lots of friendly faces watching.
Russ, yes, Zoom is perfect for lurking. Even if you want to chip in you still don’t need to show your face, and can even type  a question if you’d rather not speak either.

I didn't attempt to master the instructions for joining but hope to see a recording some time.

I did watch a couple of previous BMFA Webinars (what an awful name) and didn't fancy sitting there trying to look as though I was part of it, as was the case with the participants. On those Webinars the picture and sound quality, through the laptop speaker was not good.  Earphones, as suggested, could have improved that although I get good reproduction on YT, etc.  I suppose it will improve.  How many people signed up and "attended"?

Did Pete finish with one of his little songs at the Piano? That should get them in.
