Sent a request. Apologies to Peter for diverting his thread

Prop if you wish to make your own I can scan and send you pictures of the Falcon piece and also take dimensions and take pictures of the parts if that helps you

CYMAZ ECOMRC U/c are just wires and the Phoenix one to me looks like a diseased variety. Hideous is the word.

Have you tried contacting Chris from Falcon Models? He may be able to supply the undercarriage or ok for the drawings to be shared

For Mick's flat wires I got some solder and flux from him. I had never done any silver soldering before this. I was able to get nice solder joints using my Dremel versa flame. I made my first pieces for a 1/4 scale Cub tail wires and also for a 30 cc Pitts. These soldered joints have been doing good for over a year and half.

Yes Danny that's right

Re Mick's flat wires here's the info from Mick's website

"Hard Stainless rigging wire. Does not get kinked in use, and is very strong.
1/16" x 0.015", £4.50
3/32" x 0.020", £4.50
1/8" x 0.030 £6.00.
These are scale size and thickness, flat with rounded edges.
Difficult to tell from the scale oval section. - 5 metre rolls"

Carbs on the SC/ASP/Magnum is another area requiring attention. Often an OS unit is drop in replacement making these much better engines.
Thread: Long term storage

Yeah if I did the same, maybe I would require a 30-40 litres container 😀

Don, yes that's the best way. I completely agree but not practical if one has far too many engines. The second best way would be, wash with Keep/Naphtha and filling up the internals with preservation oil to exclude air and moisture. I used to work for a military aviation firm where the engines were preserved using transformer oil prior to being crated and shipped either to air bases or to airframe plant

Tom SAE 30.
Used to be standard oil to be used in gearboxes for older motorcycles.
19/11/2017 12:09:21
30 grade oil, generously injected from all possible orfices, then all such orfices plugged with oil soaked tissue and the whole in a polybag that goes in the box. The polybag is mainly to avoid all the oil coming in contact with cardboard boxes.
As indicated by others, a kero wash followed by oiling is best.

I have read that people have used Polycrilic. I have not used it but would love to hear what others use

I remember reading on Bolly site they had to go into liquidation due to legal action arising out of a failed prop on a manned aircraft

17/11/2017 02:07:09
Didn't the Bolly go down due to legal action post a failed microlite/manned aircraft?
16/11/2017 18:18:39
Jon a question for you. The 155 superceded the 150, but why did it not retain atleast the mounting dimensions of the 150? That would have made a replacement for many such an easy job
Thread: A puzzle for engine guru's
16/11/2017 15:41:56

No engine guru I am, but a plugged breather is what I would bet my money on

Looking nice, good to see you back on the build.

I used the same rib stitches but got them all in the same pitchsad

My pinked tapes and peri tapes were bought from pink-it as I found the serrated edges cleaner when compared to Mick's tapes

I will lurk around to watch
