Hi all, asked my young nephew what he would like for his birthday ( silly me) he replied a Bixler 3 !! Lol. He is a competent electric flier about to take his A cert. As a youngster I know he will fling it across the sky. Wondered if this model is up to club level aeros. ?

Thread: 12v charger adaptor supply
26/04/2018 16:53:34

Hi all, at the moment as you say I am using a 12 v battery and crocodile clips supplied, but I would like to use a mains adaptor. Perhaps wrong thing to do ? Cheers

I have just recieved from HK an IMAX b6 charger. I would like to supply charger with a 240v/12v adaptor. How do I specify size of male plug or are they standered. Cheers

Thanks both for this info. Alan has described the procedure excellently. Is this done with engine running, or in my shed , sorry workshop ? Cheers

Hi all, I am using a Futaba 6EXA tranny. With the throttle lever all the way back, I need to have engine still ticking over. How do I set the throttle cut switch to stop the engine ? Thanks

Thread: Model name
24/04/2018 15:09:06

Thanks Piers, that's the one great. As a complete novice to electrics then Tom kindly offered to obtain all the power train for me. I now want to use the motor in another model, but the motor lacks in fo. Now I know it is a 1000kv and around 400watt. That will do for me. Motor supplied (-Aeolian brushless motor) no other details. Any one know it ? Cheers

Re Tom Wright,s blue foam model it had twin booms ! Cheers

24/04/2018 13:42:00

A few years ago to get into electrics I built a slow flying blue foam model designed by the late great Tom Wright. It flew very well. Can any one remember the name of the model, and motor details ? Thanks

Thread: Spring 2018 is here...been flying?
22/04/2018 12:58:52

Having not flown for about 2years I thought my venerable super scorpion would get my fingers and brain together. On landing misjudged the distant fence and got off with no damage. This to me proves practice is every thing. Cheers. Am I correct ? Lol'

Thread: Ultimate Respect....
22/04/2018 12:51:58

From your title Percy, I thought I was reading about the Ult. biplane lol. Cheers

Thread: Battery problem
22/04/2018 12:49:11

I'm sure Dennis is speaking about lipos, and we all know the damage unattended charging can do. Re my 2500-2600 Nmh batts. I wonder if these are overkill ? Wondered what size is normally used by others when flying sports models such as Acrowot and Maricardo. ? Cheers

22/04/2018 10:30:19

Sorry boys, sorted !!!! It's called a senior moment lol

22/04/2018 10:20:06

Problem on page ?

21/04/2018 21:08:52

Hi Mike, most of them are 2500 mAh. I assume the mistreat ment was leaving them overnight or longer, thus overcharging them. Am I wrong ? Thanks
