I'll buy tickets if you raffle it laugh

Thread: Unrecognisable ARTFs - new paint jobs!

The chicks down my local park look nothing like that one crying

I've got a thing for day-glow colours. laugh



Thread: The WORST plane you ever had?

I am surprised the Bifly appeared as rubbish on at least 3 posts. I had the big one loved it and had it for years finally it was top fuel soaked to go on . Did not like the nasty liteply fus but it’s was fine. I would have another without qualms

I'm glad you said this after I've spent hours sorting one out ready for the this season.

Thread: Seagull P40 - weak bulkhead / poor design
17/02/2018 10:05:09

I've got a Seagul Rv8 with a split level firewall which was falling to bits the same as this and for this reason it's put me off buying any more Artf. I have a Hangar 9 Piper Pawnee and the fibre wing tubes were glued in with wood glue which didn't even bond at all. Traditional building for me as soon as I get a better workshop.

Thread: Spektrum DX6 Tx battery alarm
14/02/2018 07:39:39

I thought the tx was supposed to set off an alarm and flash when alkaline battery got to 4.3v, lipo / lion battery 6.4v. Have you run it down to test it ?

Thread: Rx low voltage
13/02/2018 05:06:01

Thanks for this, I must write it down before I forget. Sign of getting old ! I'm amazed this taranis hasn't got a notebook program as it does everything else.

12/02/2018 19:03:06

I must admit I always fully charge mine but now I've got this Frsky telemetry I might as well learn how to use it. It's good to have another indication of something going wrong. I have a few volt spy's and volt readers mounted in the planes but you can't see them in the air.

12/02/2018 18:46:01

Thanks I've always looked at electrics as a ( Dark Art ) yes

12/02/2018 18:34:48

Could I run the 5 cell packs down to 4.5v or is that risky.

12/02/2018 18:21:03

I should have mentioned it's Frsky setup, I have 4 cell and 5 cell batteries in various models so should the low setting be different depending on battery size ?

12/02/2018 17:24:47

What setting would you use to set up a low voltage alarm ? I've just been looking at information on my recivers working at 4 - 10 volts. Would 4.5v be ok for a warning alarm or could I go lower.

Thread: Lidl Sander

I went.

I bought.

I hid it from the wife!

Top tip for a peaceful life. Make sure you don't put the box in your recycle bin unless it's cut into tiny bits so she can't tell what it was yes

When the time comes I might try warming the glue with the other half's hair dryer.

08/02/2018 19:00:15

Is there a easy way to get the old sanding disks off to replace them ?

08/02/2018 11:01:14

Got one ! I got up early (for me) and walked down to the shop, I could have had a lay in as there was about 10 on the shelf. Didn't bother with the pliers as they were naff but came away with some tubes of silicone sealant. Had a quick look at it, I did notice the table has a wobble even if the nuts are tight when you put weight on it. Will have to remember this when setting it up. It will be fine for balsa and 3mm ply which doesn't justify spending loads of money.

05/02/2018 18:50:02

Have Lidl started putting them on the shelves already ?

03/02/2018 20:52:29

I'll have to look at those pliers when I'm down there, I could do with some small ones.

03/02/2018 17:08:55

yes there goes my lay in laugh

03/02/2018 16:15:53

How did you find out about the deal ? When I look on the website I can never find anything ?
