Thread: Forum members' new models: Let's see them.

Hi onetenor, quite a bit of info on Wikipedia. In early 1933 the German government put out a tender which was basically for a fighter aircraft. Four companies made submissions, The Heinkel came second to the ME109. About 100 Heinkels 112s were built and mainly purchased by other countries.

cymaz, an arf. Kiwikid has provided a link.

Interestingly, it has "stubby" wings. Wingspan 1550mm, Length 1560mm but looks much bigger. In addition to the "Spitfire" wings, they are cranked, reminiscent of a Corsair. A bit of everything. But a terrific model and looks great flying. Cheers Graeme

imgp3758.jpgimgp3771.jpgThank you Paul. I love Spitfires and have four. Time for something new. While searching possibilities I came across the Heinkel and of course loved the wing. I knew nothing about them.It has become my favourite model this last four months. It flys superbly, looks great in the air, lands beautifully with no hint of a nose over and has proved to be the easiest warbird to manage I have ever had. A couple of more pictures so show off that lovely wing. Cheers Graemeimgp3730.jpg

I bought this Blackhorse Heinkel HE112-B December 2017. I have since had 70 to 80 flights. Just love it.imgp3759.jpg

Hi Phil, I have been using Aircraft Mechanics on my Heinkel 112-B, not tricycle of course, and they have been excellent.

Cheers Graeme

It seems Jr are back in the market again. They have even advertised pretty colourful transmitters. Hope its true. It was an excellent product. Cheers Graeme

Thread: Tony's hurri retracts!

Hello Den, I recently bought a set of Aircraft Mechanics 120's. Cost is about half way between E-Flight and HK.

They look to be very well made and work well on the bench. I'm putting them in a Mick Reeves Focke Wulf 190D. I have not used them in action. They may be an option for you. Regards Graeme

wp_20170622_13_42_26_pro.jpgwp_20170622_13_27_00_pro.jpgColin, I started the Focke Wulf in February and have been making steady progress. I am a slow builder, (I seem to think more than build), so it will be some time before completion. But that's ok. There is no rush. It'll be done when it's done. here's a couple of pictures.

All the best Graeme

Thread: Electric retracts

Hello Chris,

I picked up my retracts today. No instructions but specifications on the side of the box, one of which states "Built-in overload/current protection". Hope all good. Thanks for your help, Regards Graeme

07/04/2017 09:38:10

Thanks for that Chris. They should be ok. I am supposedly receiving a set of 60-120 tomorrow. Cheers Graeme

07/04/2017 06:25:50

Hi Chris, Did you determine if they have stall protection please? Thanks Graeme

16/03/2017 08:53:54

Yes Frank, they are the ones.

Good point Chris. I haven't been able to determine if they have stall protection. It's needed I believe. I will have another talk with my supplier.

I'll be interested in your findings Chris. Cheers Graeme

Superb flying. Kathy & I were in Croatia in 2013. What a lovely country. Thanks Jo. All the best, Graeme

Yes Chris, they do look good on the Web. I haven't seen them in the flesh.

I have been quoted $150 Aus, without freight for 90 -120 warbirds. . E flight around $240 and HK range roughly $80 to $100. They have been recommended, so I will order a set for my Focke Wulf. Thanks Graeme

Has anyone had any experience of "Aircraft Mechanics" (brand name I think) electric retracts please? Cheers Graeme

Thanks Dwain for the clip. That looks straight forward. Just roll the long way for a turn. Graeme

11/03/2017 22:53:16

Ha Ha, thanks John. I'll do that walk in Derry next time I am in N. Ireland. Looks lovely. Go well Graeme

Thanks for all the useful advice. There is a lot of wisdom in that lot. I agree Dennis. Lots of practice. Yes Brian, I have been experimenting with different models and the best so far has been the Staudacher. But it's still hard. It seems to happen all too fast. I did wonder Andy, whether I was unintensionally slipping in a bit of elevator when using rudder.

I'm trying to learn it so that I can display my YT 72" Spitfire to best advantage in our Club's upcoming "Scale Ralle~. I guess I will keep experimenting and practice as Dennis says. I was hoping there was an easier way!

Well Martin, it's interesting you mentioned the Derry Turn. That was going to be my next question. I haven't a clear idea of exactly the track it takes and how it looks. I believe there is a 270degree roll in there somewhere. I think Mr. Derry used different sequences depending on the situation. He liked to surprise the crowd.

I'll keep at it. Cheers Graeme
