The dark brown ply or hardwood doubler on the firewall through which you have mounted the motor is tapered to give side thrust and may well be tapered to give down thrust? I seem to recall when fitting a motor in the ARTF Wots Wot this was the case but you can probably get a pdf copy of the bud instructions from the Ripmax website...

Thread: Flightline 1600mm Spitfires????????

Interesting debate this - I preordered from Reds RC in the Spring paid in August and finally took delivery last week! Along the way when the first shipment arrived in Liverpool a warehouse operative apparently sent the model assigned to me to another customer. Then about a month later they finally sent me a model that was damaged (fuselage creased) and it had to be returned...I was then criticised for the condition of the box as it was returned (I had started to disassemble the box for recycling)

Needless to say there were some 'choice' words exchanged with Reds RC whose customer empathy is almost non-existent. I won't be buying from them again and I suspect they couldn't give a hoot...bring back the LMS!

Thread: Where do I buy fuel?
12/11/2017 12:32:23

Buy Prosynth fuel direct from Weston UK - I have almost exclusively OS engines and all run very well on that. You can buy half gallons mail order

Yes its a good flying field although when I was starting to learn I did put a model (a Flair Kite) in one of the trees! Shameful! 🙄

Well done Jonathan - Ive met Paul and visited his field many times when it was owned by ATS: I learned to fly there and took my A certificate there as well. Im sure iti was money well spent!👍

Tony find your local club and join will probably be cheaper and enjoyable than trying to learn everything from scratch

Thread: Replacement tail-wheel for Acrowot?
29/09/2017 14:19:10

Jon the solution you have decided on is perfect but on the question of skids Carboncopy do a carbon fibre skid for the Acrowot which in my experience works very well - I have just fitted one to an IC Wot 4. They are more expensive but when I was learning to fly my own built Acrowot ten years + ago I found it preferable to a tail wheel and its resistance helped me to maintain a straight take off run...


Thread: Model selection for "B" test
28/09/2017 18:04:45

Vic - whilst I prefer and fly mainly ic aerobatic models having a B certificate and having flown plenty of Wot 4 foamies I would say that it is a suitable model for the test and fully agree with Denis' comments about being familiar and comfortable with the model you choose to do the test with. Another idea would be to talk to your club examiner on what he recommends and thinks Is suitable as it will most likely be him and another examiner who take you for your test?

Good luck! Jon
