Weston recommended prop sizes

14 x 14

15 x 12

16 x 12

Example prop sizes (2-blade) 14x14, 15x12, 16x12
(3-blade) 13.4x13.5
(4-blade) 13x13, 14.5x11

Being geared 2:1, your motor turns the prop at half the crankshaft speed, but much greater torque leading to the specialised props required.

Thread: S6r receiver
27/03/2017 15:07:27

Stabilised flight is a much calmer affair and ideal for FPV as well as launching

Mount the receiver correctly longwise fore and aft, with the servo connectors aft

And the logo with channel descriptions is the top

So in a low winger, if you can read the channel numbers, the unit is upsidedown

If you get my drift

Still the best Mike

But like all products, get it from a reputable seller

Yes Trebor, for maneuvers just switch it off

And crosswind landing, switch on again

To grease my wheels i use some Lard.

It eases the shock when I land it ard,

Helps it slip and slide off true

Thread: In runner timing
26/03/2017 20:27:45

I thought we had finished with this choice Robert

But it used to be soft timing for the in runner

Hard timing outrunner

The number of magnets came into the calculation

Apart from competition flying, I think if your motor runs smoothly then leave it alone

Stunning Andy. I wish I saw your panel lines intention before you added the light colour.

A useful trick is soft pencil on the primer shows through the light top coat, BUT you have to be very careful scribing the lines straight, as pencil is near impossible to get off a light colour

If you chuck that thing of a hill Jim, it could be the last time that you see it.

If you ever go for powered flight, PM me for onfield instruction 30 miles from your location

You would get hooked too, if you had a fly of that Astro Hog, BBC

They have authority in the air, with no vices, and they do make you look good.

I am an Aeromodeller no crashing is too hard.

But when it does happen, I pick up each shard.

Thanks Pat

The common denominator is that the set up doesn't work in the right sequence to fly

And I did not want Digger to throw in the towel

25/03/2017 18:45:46

Hang on Digger, you may have the throttle off down

But it could be reversed, therefore at full throttle

And this needs trimming down below zero signal to operate

When the throttle direction is found

Constant beep Digger is usually

Low supply battery or

Throttle high, should be off or

Reversed throttle

Truely Martin, when I consult George personally, as the website answers so many questions on its own, I do buy from 4 max


25/03/2017 17:16:53

Pronto Martin, EB needs to check DBs effort will suffice

And let's just hope George continues to help us buy from HK in future

They will change it no problem

They have electronic records of transactions

This may appear potty, but others may feel the same way, that everything I buy and assemble for flight is deemed expendable. It is my hobby, paid for by me, but in a blink of an eye, the equipment or model could be damaged or totally written off. Luckily I have had very few problems, but despite being precious, and enjoyable, the whole kit, to me is expendable. I wouldn't dream of sending stuff back, if I cannot fix it then the bulk goes for spares and the main requirements are replaced. I must add that I have never had a Tx fault, but "after sales" means little when the decision is made to buy. I have dropped Tx and broken sticks and switches and replaced those. But after sales does not affect my choices. Potty maybe

Thread: Disappointing experience with RC-World in Newport.

The incomplete transaction between Martin and the seller was poorly dealt with, and has led to the "walking on eggs" feeling, as we don't want to be seen to be berating any LMS in these times of failing business.

The tension has originated with the seller, and best advice is that Newport smooths this over with Martin.
