Measuring my plan the spinner on the plan is 98.275mm but thats only an approximation, and assumes the cowl matches the plan. I had heard the spinner was wrong but not the cowl??? Have I missed something???

The backing makes excellent plan protector BTW glue wont stick to it.

Martian, its not the lightest, nor adds any strength (but that applies to all iron on coverings) but it is very quick and easy to apply. Sure there is a weight penalty but its not that great IMO.

Excellent SW, can you show some pics of your silk over tissue? That's what I am planning for my Fury I have heard its normal tissue methods then thinned wallpaper paste the silk on to the tissue, sounds barbaric but is how the experts do it They say it looks like a disaster until it dries.

I think I will be learning quite a bit too, not really done a scale bipe, all that rigging, and silk over tissue as well. Should be real fun.

My Mossie is just about ready to test. Only trouble is we now have snow on the ground!! Anyway cannot test until after next clubnight as the thing needs weighing as it is close to the club limit.

on 2 x 5S 5000mAh packs in parallel, I get 1300 Watts, 66Amps, from two Turnigy 4250 350kV motors. Through a pair of 55A ESC's. the motors are swinging 17 x 10 but I am going to go for 17 x 12 just to give me some more airspeed in case I need it.

Not that it is relevant at all, and really isn't useful, but is reassuring, I have 13lbs of static thrust. And throttle steer configured on OpenTX. It really yaws nicely with it enabled. This should be great for take-off, but doubt it will help much on landing. Assuming the swing is torque then I should be okay.

I have extended the power leads and fitted 220uF caps to stabilse the surges.

I have used SBUS decoders in the nacelles to reduce number of wing leads.

ESC under the nacelle

seperate UBECs for Rx and each retract servo. Only 2 channels on R6 used, rudder elevator + SBUS. Channels on the SBUS decoders are used for all wing functions. Two decoders, one in each nacelle.

Its no trouble Martin i have found a great material a bit like plaster of paris that will not stick to the original. Just fill Brians original, pop out the rock hard plug and you can vacform of it. I have done a few for friends that didnt want to use the originals just in case
04/02/2018 21:22:16
Hi Martin you cannot have mine but i am happy to make a plug and try and pull one for you? I have an untouched set, this is for the 81 inch?

Looks great John
Thread: Silver Wolf's Chipper-too

Looking good. As you have gone IC do you think with the sections cut and hinged the cowl will be strong enough to withstand all that suck, squeese, bang and blowing going on? I hinged mine to allow easy access for the Lipo. you do not need this, why not just fit it as any other IC??

Cheers

Personally Martyn I would take a sample of traner yellow to either B and Q and get some acrylic mixed, or go to an auto factors and get some celly mixed to your swatch

Love the rivets

Cheers

That really looks great SW I f I recall I used two offset hinges (for access hatches), probably from Hobby king Replace the hinge pins and run a length of piano wire between the two hinges to ensure they are in perfect allignment

Thread: Indoor Scale R/C entry Piper Super Cub PA-18
02/01/2018 13:22:56

I realise this is an old thread, but I thought you may be interested in a bit of re-work being carried out on the Cub ready for this years indoor RC scale Nats at Shawbury in early March.

I felt the model would benefit from having ailerons, so I have made another set of wings and included ailerons

each wing will have an aileron servo, again from the Parkzone Micro series. These little servos weigh 1.4g though my extensions have increased that weight slightly. The copper wire is 36AWG varnished motor winding wire, solderig the stuff stretched my dexterity that is for sure!
