|Thread: Radio systems|
+1 for BEB's sound reasoned advice
I started with a Futaba FF9 on 35Mhz and had a few glitches so switched to JR using DSM2 the early Spektrum protocol, which proved to be glitch free. I then purchased one of the last DX9's with dual DMS2 & DSMX. I personally have had absolutely no radio issues at all and it does everything I need and more reliably. Excluding dumb fingers & dodgy switches but hey that effects every make
One other major potential issue not mentioned so far that effects all makes concerns extension leads not securely fastened together, working loose or leads not pushed into receivers or making poor intermittent contact over time. I always use 100mm fly leads to help prevent this potential intermittent issue with thread, tape or plastic locks. Would appear in the air as a radio issue. Not saying it was but I genuinely don't believe their are any inherently bad major systems out their today.
|Thread: See-through OS wankel rotary engine running slow-motion|
Knew the principle but to actually see it in action - fantastic, thanks for sharing.
|Thread: Wot 4 Squared|
Watching with interest as I have a Mk 3 to start shortly
|Thread: PU Glue removal|
Thanks David, I thought the dark grubbyness was due to it attracting muck, however looking around there is some evidence of iron darkening PU type glues - you live an learn.
Resorted to using one of the foam emery sponges which shifted some - but not all. Guess I will just have to let nature run its course for the remainder.
Thanks both, but the black grubby mark the diameter of a golfball is refusing to budge.
I guess the grease from the skin will eventually lift it but would dearly love a faster solution.
I love PU glue and am normally very careful not to get any on my hands.
You know whats coming next - yes my latex glove sprung a leak and now I have some on my palm
Tried thinners, nail varnish remover & Isopropanol with no result - So what will shift it please ????
|Thread: New TV Channel|
Are you accessing these through transmitted Freeview over the airwaves from a mast or via a Freeview internet link? Only my std airwaves Freeview doesn't show 94 no matter ow many times I re-tune it
Tried retuning here in Yorkshire and nothing on Freeview 94 here
|Thread: Peterf's 1/4 scale Falcon Models Tiger Moth|
Fascinating to follow to a superb end result and take my hat off of to you for taking the time to show and explain your techniques and problem solving Just need to see it flying.

|Thread: The Ohmen|
If weight is needed and space allows what about paralleling up a pair of 2200 to give 4400 x 3s?
More useful weight with better duration.
|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
Apart from UK and some of the colonies, I suspect the rest of the world uses Gasoline and even us Brits recognize the phrase, where as the Yanks/others probably wouldn't automatically recognize Petrol. Heart says P but head leans towards G. You may also wish to distinguish between 2 stroke and 4 stroke engines with FS.
My tuppence - Laser G25 FS
|Thread: GTC by Levanter|
Going to sound lame but work and home work projects have taken priority with snatched flying days eating up what little free time was left. That said yesterday I did dust it off and make a start on the nacelle assemblies so moving forward again.
I for one appreciate you taking the time and effort to share your tips and ideas, Fantastic - Brilliant
|Thread: How did that happen?|
As Dave C mentioned with both full size and models, if you let the speed bleed off to much over the top a stall occurs (inverted), wing drops followed by a spin.
|Thread: NEW POLL! The 2018 Transmitter Survey!|
Spektrum DX9 does everything I need although with mainly third party receivers, Lemon, Redcon and Orange due to genuine receiver costs. - ALL ROCK SOLID performance
Our mown car parking area along the lane was being attacked so we also set traps with marker canes. Both the canes and traps disappeared, so either walkers were against killing moles or nicked them for there own use
Moles have been steadily getting nearer our patch which is located in a large pasture field. When one actually made a home in the patch we set traps both pincer and tunnel observing to minimise scent the best we could. It took a number of repositionings (smart blighters back fill and go around) before success. We have now moved out to meet them and so far its TDMFC 3 - Moles 0.
Jury is out on whether pincer or tunnel work best (both have worked) although pincer are much easier to set.
I like the principle of the sound detection - anyone
|Thread: P.A.W engine factory vid|
Thanks for that, real proper cottage industry British engineering - fantastic insight, all be it briefly.
+1 for an article - would make interesting reading
|Thread: Acro Wot build advice|
My interpretation of the above Q & A would be it's referring to a butt joint ie. root to root with no reinforcing. So yes a BIG NO NO.
However if adding glass cloth either bandage or diamond pattern (my preference) then Poly C, Water based Polyurethane Varnish or Aliphatic would be strong enough.
On my Acro Wot I used a larger and then smaller diamond pattern of 50g & 25g GF cloth with WBPV, which after getting a 90' crosswind practice landing all wrong, the following cartwheel failed to inflict any damage to the wing. Tail was not so lucky
As previously mentioned Polyester resin eats foam.
NC - Nice job on the Challenger
