Thread: Mystery Engine: gas 26cc
26/06/2017 18:53:50

Hmm the RCME engine guru reckons it is a SPE/MLD 26cc....very confusing!

25/06/2017 22:22:02

Just engines are a good call - should have thought of that. Someone else has suggested it is a Webra Bully?

Unknown engine 1Can anyone help identifying this engine please - I bought it second hand fitted to a YT/Modeltech Dragon Lady? ThanksUnknown engine 2

I've just bought this model second hand - it came without the spats (which I can sort from the spares box) but also short of the acetate windscreen...

If anyone has an unbuilt kit and could trace the outline of the windshield for me I would be very grateful

Thanks, Jon

I went on Friday last year and the trade presence was excellent and you may get access to the best deals on stuff being offered for sale...I really couldn't see any difference in the number or nature of stalls compared to previous years when I went on the Saturday..

Thread: BMFA Buckminster opens Monday 8th May.

i was going to stay away from this thread but I will make this one contribution...I don't intend to justify my comments subsequently

I visited the Buckminster site a few weeks ago and had a tour with Manny - those who can may also want to do so. The project management of the site works has been excellent and Manny, Andy et al are to be congratulated.

I like the location and the flying aspect is fabulous.I am providing a small level of sponsorship as I want to see this become a success....I like the bold way in which this can help to take our sport/hobby forward and the facilities on offer are very good.

Our club is organising a flying day there in a very reasonable cost and there is enthusiasm to go. I have purchased a season ticket even though I live in the NW and it will take at least two hours to get there. I really hope this becomes a success and that the BMFA membership can get behind it.

Well done to Manny and the BMFA team

Has anyone received / flown a Flightline 1600mm Spitfire yet?

Thread: Ideas for articles in RCM&E

Pete, although I don't use CAD files myself I think that is a really interesting and useful idea and may encourage luddites like me to engage with CAD software...

David the tricycle u/c works fine. I used a larger diameter nose wheel and smallest diameter prop to get a comfy ground clearance

Yes John - my advancing years make it a real boon; I bought it before a hip replacement operation but continue to use it as it is so safe..

My wife bought me the PB Calibre last year as a birthday present and had no problems whatsoever and on a post delivery enquiry they were very positive so a thumbs up from me!

Thread: Summer's almost here: Preparing your models....
20/04/2017 10:23:38

All airworthy although a couple need some minor attention (Sagging covering etc.) after winter flying. If I have a problem then I repair them pretty much straight away....and that goes for some of my clubmates' models as well since I have a decent rc workshop

Thread: Phoenix, models
18/04/2017 22:24:36

18/04/2017 18:50:33

Neither TJD nor Pegasus are stocking Phoenix (just checked)....anyone know of an alternative source in the UK?

Colin Chapman is still going in Wellingborough - he advertises as Midlands Flight Training in RCM&E at the back of the magazine
