I am very particular in having my props perfectly balanced. How does one go about balancing a spinner?


THIS might be interesting reading. I too , balance and check every prop I get. Even big Xoar props need a dab of balancing glue sometimes.

Now would be a good time to design the cooling baffles. Easy to build a tunnel right onto the engine fins. Can’t wait to see the results.

Interesting well done. I you thought about how it might fly? Short moment arm ,large fin and elevator. Keep that in mind when setting up the throws and for the maiden. Good luck

I came across this site years ago and found it very helpful in trying to learn about aeroplanes and getting started in learning but just never really got into building or designing I will one day when there is something I cannot buy that I really want.

It is the best site I have come across but you probably found it already.

I used the same site when I designed and scratch built a model. It needed several reversions but it flies well.

Stripped and recovered a brand new Wot4 ages ago. I’m glad I did as some of the build quality was dreadful. It came to an end when the elevator servo decided to pack up mid flight...

Will electric cars have an option of a sound board to make it sound like a Mustang V8 or Merlin?

Just wondering....why are all the best flying artf designs always discontinued after a few short years.angry Maybe its due to the manufacturer not shipping enough because no-one is crashing them

91/4st....... you gonna have to build a large vintage model for it(think storage and transport)...a lot of power which a vintage job doesn't need once it's up a height.....


ken up a height dept.

Ken....that’s what I was trying to say in my usual incoherent scribbling. It’s almost territory for 1/5-  scale Bleriot. I’m not saying go and buy one ( look at the price!!) but the scale size might do.

When you mean vintage....1930-40 free flight style, radio conversation? The old Junior 60 needs about a .30 four stroke but the basic design meant it doesn’t want to come and land in any sort of a hurry. BELAIR do a 96” version for a .52fs and above. It’s a two piece wing as well...if you build it that way. It still might be overpowered with a .91fs. Though there is always just flying around on tick over!

Flew it today.

  1. Getting a longer nose leg...I was just being tight and mean by using what I had. It has cost me two props at £2 each angryangry
  2. The throws on low rate were spot on
  3. The cg was making it nose heavy, not by much ,so I will leave it.
  4. The position of rear wheels are just rights or rotation.
  5. The 46AX is great fun laugh
  6. Glides well and shows to be very stable with no wing rock at very low speed.
  7. Good turning circle with good ground handling
