Thread: Twin power set ups
07/12/2017 20:03:05

Reminded me of a recent experience on my Twin Star recently - brushless - just after take off one motor cut out but managed to land it ok with lots of opposite rudder and gently inputs of power on the one remaining motor.

Thread: Is there a foam safe CA that available in ‘normal’ shops?

Most local model shops will keep foam safe cyno. UHU POR is good too.

What is wrong with BFMA website - trying to renew but forgotten password - sent re-set request multiple times - no return e mail. I am registered as it tells me from my membership number.

I even sent e mail to BMFA Sunday advising I was having issues and no response - any BMFA bods on here who could help?

Thread: M/Plex Gemini

Many thanks for that - Trying to keep it tame as a while since I have flown it smiley

I am re- programming my M/Plex Gemini and have the following settings. With regards to the ailerons figures do i read that as 16mm up and 12mm down please?...and similar apply to the elevator - first figure up and second figure down.

Control surface travels:

Measured at the widest point of the control surfaces
16/12 mm +/-
12/10 mm +/-
20 mm L/R
Thread: Thought I'd got the right motor.
02/12/2017 07:13:51

I recently drilled out a motor collett about 1mm in a drill press but you do need to go steady and used plenty of WD40 as a lubricant.

Thread: Woodpecker

I like this a lot and pulled the plan to build but then saw the size adn thought -hmmm - management might not be happy with another aircraft taking over the house. i have about 15 dotted so, wondered if it would work half size - get the plan reduced at a copy shop and then adjust powerhouse accordingly etc. any thoughts anyone?

Not an expert but as above ^^^^^^^

Thread: J Perkins Albatross 2m glider
17/11/2017 06:18:09

Hi Tom

No, have done the usual Google. Test glide was fine. Under power seemed to want to nose up so wonder in thrust line out but have replaced motor in same location as original. Also control surfaces seemed slow to respond so just wondered if not enough throws?

16/11/2017 17:07:19

Went for a quick test today and suspect CofG needs to come further forward (currently between 1/3 and 1/2 chord) - I bought this second hand and converted to brushless but ideally looking for someone who may have a copy of the instructions or who could assist with a copy - will try J Perkins direct but not going to hold my breath.

Thread: What soldering iron wattage?
08/11/2017 06:15:30

Use some flux as make the solder flow much more easily - phosphoric acid. Carrs do a complete range.

Thread: Am i being thick - probably!
07/11/2017 10:52:36

Should I now move this to the Doh thread?

07/11/2017 08:14:12

Thanks Chaps top prize for mode change - was in mode 4 - I never knew it could be switched electronically and must have pushed some wrong buttons when trying to resolve but all sorted now laugh
