Thread: How large scale electric can you go?
29/04/2018 10:35:42

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?
23/04/2018 15:54:02

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?

Hangar 9 have got some lovely looking stuff.

availability seems to be poor

22/04/2018 15:27:05

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....
22/04/2018 14:16:22

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

Thread: Instruction Manuals How Useful?

I think there is a more fundamental problem TBH, too many manuals written in "Chinglish" you know the sort of thing "It are raining here also" etc.

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**

"the stick wasn't simply a walking stick, but a sword stick" and therein lies the problem. An offensive weapon, illegally carried in a public place. Self Defence/Reasonable Force is a defence available to all but requires the observance of some parameters, such as not using and illegal weapon and not using excessive force when the felon is fleeing (Tony Martin scoring double top in that respect)

Edited By stu knowles on 05/04/2018 20:42:22

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
06/04/2018 10:00:56

M​any 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"
