|Thread: Silencer recommendations|
When prop tips go supersonic a mini sonic boom comes off each tip. A North American Texan/Harvard prop was direct drive from the engine and made a noise to behold [ well for a bit ]
|Thread: Engine test stands|
|Thread: Tentative return|
The next time he is out with the chainsaw have that old COX engine ready to go and let it RRRRRIP.
|Thread: Electricity Pylon Interference?|
That it was carbon fiber,nice and conductive ?
|Thread: Precedent models from the 80, Hi-Boy, Low-Boy and Supernova|
The T240 was a bigger version of the T180. A fellow club member was chucking his old 180 around the sky like a good un on the weekend.
I still have a Hiboy used now and then as an engine test bed,has the wing from a Rojair cadet 62 though.

|Thread: Wings over Illawarra 2018|
Nice pics and info.
|Thread: COX THIMBLE-DROME|
|Thread: Steering nose leg does it need trail|
The problem with ducted fan or jet is there is little airflow over the rudder at low speed.
Sounds like you have an F16 or similar type with narrow main UC track not well suited to grass operation. A little rake may help as would making sure there is no slop in the steering and the steering servo is man enough for the job
|Thread: Spring 2018 is here...been flying?|
|Thread: Query on use of old Futaba 35Mhz equipment with modern electrics|
I still use 35 for several low use aircraft some electric and have not had any problems.
|Thread: BBC Weather|
It's a con,they keep telling us the weather is going to be better than it is so when we look back we will remember it better than it was.
|Thread: Prop adaptors: How tight is just tight enough?|
Is that a pusher or tractor set up ?
I would say that the bar needed to tighten the adapter should be no longer than one prop blade.To prevent turning hold the prop not the motor.
Thread lock will not prevent you undoing it.
Today just about every bolt on anything has a torque setting.Mechanics of old were expected to learn how much they should lean on different sizes of fastening to secure them.
|Thread: Shoulder wing design question|
Some fuselage shapes can contribute to lift as in knife edge flight for a normal aircraft [ Delmar Benjamin's Gee Bee model R replica had very good knife edge perfomance with it's fat rounded fuselage ] or in the case lifting body types like the Brunelli lifting body aircraft.
For most aircraft any extra lift is very small and can be ignored no matter where the wing is mounted.
|Thread: How did that happen?|
I once had a model that was a "bitsa" Flair Fledgling wing,drainpipe fuzz,tail from something else.
Build up some speed in a dive,pull full up and it would perform a lovely cloverleaf maneuver with no other input. The one piece wing had a tad more incidence on one side.
|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
I have one of those tachos and it is rubbish.
|Thread: Vauxhall In The Doldrums.....|
I liked both my Cavaliers but could not take to the Vectra.
