|Thread: How large scale electric can you go?|
Adrian if your 60cc conversion is successful and you are not planning on competition will a 100cc conversion offer you anything more in terms of enjoyment or performance that will justify the price tag and difficulties?
the 50v level is guidance (a line in the sand) for electrical installations in buildings. 12s can be just as dangerous as 14s as it is current that harms the body and not voltage. you do not need to be a qualified electrician to put together a 14s model.
I am no expert here but having attended a few IMAC competitions as a spectator I think a electric 100cc size model is perfectly doable and could offer some advantages in competition flying over petrol. but the stumbling block for IMAC at least is the duration. At a good model weight there is not enough duration to complete the IMAC routines. Adding enough battery to give the duration makes the model to heavy. But this is working within IMAC competition rules whils trying to stay competitive. I think for the sport flyer cost is a limiting factor
|Thread: where are all the ARTFs?|
I do wonder how much of an impact petrol power has had? where once a club member would turn up with 3 models to fly they now come with one larger model. Normally an edge, extra, yak or sbach so the demand for a variety of models has reduced maybe?
|Thread: Show Off Your WOTs!|
mine is somewhere in the thick wooded area. Lost today along with the new laser 70 engine attached to it
|Thread: where are all the ARTFs?|
availability seems to be poor
Is it just my imagination or is the choice of available artfs a lot less then there was a few years ago (5-10)
|Thread: Ultimate Respect....|
that's my point. it a bit clinical and stepping out of the area to cause a break when you are in a vulnerable position is a bit of a cop out. you cant do that in a ring or real combat
it hard to tell from this edit but it looks like both competitors seemed to be deliberately stepping out the area if they had lost control
to quote Bruce lee "The art of fighting without fighting"
|Thread: Is this cake server the most useless thing ever?|
l wonder if the baby got hit by the laptop
|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
what size tube will I need to make a straight pipe. I still will need to take the exhaust out of the model
The sound of my laser 70 is very soft and quiet is there a good way to make it sound more sporty
|Thread: Instruction Manuals How Useful?|
That sounds more Black Country than Chinese
|Thread: From where might I acquire a Pulse XT60?|
Dave if you did not buy one of the two from amazon your mad. Probably the last chance you will get for a xt60 **LINK**
|Thread: Richard Osborn-Brooks|
was the sword illegal? Mr Osborn-Brooks was not in a public place. If he felt he was in danger of being stabbed by the intruder with a screwdriver it could be argued that stabbing the intruder first is reasonable force that is proportionate to the threat and an act of self defence. Well the authorities will have to make that decision

|Thread: lipo rx battery|
Many thanks for all the replies. Lots of food for thought there. There is an argument that even with LiFe batteries I should be using a regulator. Maybe Peter is right and I should go with the old adage"if it an't broke dint fix it"
