|Thread: What on earth are these ???|
Thanks chaps , I have red all the links , $200- $350 !!!!!! phew !!!
A mate gave me these yesterday , 2 sets , and said he's got hundreds , they were inhis garage when he moved onto his house years ago and never found a use for them ,!
Now we know what they are , but still have no use for them
like a Wigwam for a Wowser to wind the sun up with ??
I dont have any hair so dont need a comb
|Thread: AS3X receivers|
Yes I was cross, because the lead cost me more than the Visionaire , and I got that from Ali !!!,
now where is that RCS reed set I had ???
I have an iphone 4 and its "memory " is not big enough to house the Speccy program for the AS3x , as you tend to find out when you have bought the phone lead and read the small print , !!!!!
a couple of years ago I bought a Visionaire without wings , but everything else , got new wings off an ME109 and Tower pro 90 mg servos for the ailerons and alls well after nearly 2 years ,
I guess it would be best to put in digital servos like the rudder and elevator , but I doubt i would tell the difference !
|Thread: Winters Here Who's Been Flying ?|
I do admit that as a club we are all MAD , Sunday actually had over 90% turn out , with only one missing , with a cold , the rest of us just were !!(cold that is ).( also a very small club !!)
The NE wind was a bit gusty and it was really cruel to fly something like the Luton but enthusiasm overcame all obstacles !It was its first proper "maiden " so caution was thrown to the wind , ( Pun??)
and getting out of the house is magic !
|Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.|
Pretty viceless, ideal for a "B" cert practice airframe
|Thread: Ripmax EasyStreet 2|
That looks good , much more room than in the "old one ", all my Easy Streets are powered by Mystery 2836 , 1700kv on 8x4 props ,
The motor plus esc used to be a fiver on ebay !!
|Thread: Christmas Caption Competition!|
Between them, They have more channels than Freeview !
|Thread: Replacement shafts?|
Do what John Rudd has suggested , !!
you know it makes sense !
not expensive and you will have some left over for next time .
PS if you can avoid cutting circlip grooves in the shaft it will eliminate a stress raiser , If there is room use a collet instead !

|Thread: Buying Ether|
The last ether I have bought has been from Southern , I normally drop them an email so they bring me a 1/2 gallon to an air show , for me normally Weston and Cosford , and a gallon lasts me the year .
Or get a mate who is going to any show that Southern attend to pick it up for you ,
Works for me !!
|Thread: Ripmax Easy Street|
I don't have a problem fitting 3s 2200 lipos under the wing ! My RX joins the servos under the canopy ie on top !
I have 3 Easy Streets, !! obviously love them . ( and a spare set of wings !)
They are quick, not as fast as the EFX, but pretty nippy , I gather from my "older"pylon friends, that they bought the kits purely for the wings which were the best easily obtainable ready built ones, so the plane has "providence "
I fit mine with 1700 kv on an 8x4 on a 3s 2200 and SD 200 servos , Super smooth, and end to end very fast knife edge. !
Old it may be, but not out !!
|Thread: Is traditional building a disappearing art?|
Hi Chris , ( and dad) Happy Seasonal Greetings
These photos were attached to his Christmas Card , so the answer is YES !!
The heading of this Thread " trad building a disappearing Art " more or less?
As the previous post showing unique design and build ability had no comment or critique , I would presume the answer is YES !
But id anyone is out there
Have a Happy Festive Holiday !
|Thread: Mirus Build Blog|
A fairy story for grown ups ( and me )
and they all lived happily ever after !!
pity there will be no more !
