|Thread: Epoxy glue|
Epoxy glue will have all sorts added thickeners like flock, micro balloons even metals and is not intened for laminating as it won't wet out the glass fiber properly and add weight , use laminating resin for the bandage just wet it out and use a squeegee to get rid off excess resin, you don't want the cloth to float off the surface of what it is being joined too.
it also comes with different hardeners from 15 min to 2 hours, just remember to mix accurately and a 15+ degree ambient room temp is a must for proper cure.

|Thread: Taranis update|
Sounds like/ maybe that you have used the wrong firmware file . the X4r uses diferent firmware to the X6r and X8r, easy done
X8R_LBT_build151118 is for X8R and X6R receivers

|Thread: Taranis 9XD buddy-boxed to Turnigy 9XR Pro|
Hi have you set the right modes "Master" on the Taranis and "Slave" on the 9XR. It's down toward the bottom on the same page with the RF module settings. and also set a switch to operate as it wont fuction corectly , also the planes reciever need to be bound and set up on the taranis first . if you not already done have you enabled which channels to use from the slave Tx on the taraNIS traner set up page?

Well if know one knows , I will have to test my self. and as for range checks thats standard procedure for me with new models and refurbs . also got longer antenna to route correctly just in case
Hi building a large tiger moth and i got a large tin of aluminuim dope cheep off ebay to paint it (raf silver trainer scheme) , the stuff used for full size (skycraft) what i would like to know is it petrol proof as I am going to use a petrol.

|Thread: Which first kit?|
just seen you question about the PT 19 i had a saito 91 squeezed in up front oddles of power, so i think the laser 80 would be the perfect choice for this plane
yes it goes like that sometimes

Hi Donald '' a machine chewing though it's tailplane and wing root'' give us the details as it sound interisting as i can't work out the criptic?
from your first post you said you want a challange and a build that will set you up from building from a plan and that would be a FAIRCHILD PT-19 CORNELL from apache aviation which is available from slec now it is a good build and a lovely flyer which can be pushed to do nice scale aerobatics and more , it hase no vices, realy easy flyer, don't be put off by the fact it has flaps which is fun to lean about the afects of using them. and I had one for quite a few years and I flew it so much i wore it out (really i did). (and wots are realy common)
as for gliders what do you want scale wood sloper type or a fibre modern type? the list is huge

|Thread: Does anyone have any advice on batteries?|
Dave get something like this easy to use , there are may like it out there like this one and you can use it out and about off a 12v source like the car battery
Also if you use the LSD types there don't like fast charging.
once converted you will never go back
There is no reason not to get 4.8v (4 cell Himh) pack and charge them as a pack with a delta peak charger, it is reliable and safe, been doing it for years and if you use LSD types (eneloop) they store well keeping their charge. there is no need to charge Nmhi batts individually . just use good makes of battery packs .
as said above
|Thread: Redundancy in larger models?|
The KISS principle is always best, 0ne good quality battery and switch (or 2 switches) and with regular checks and maintenance is all that is needed for safe flying, you only have one battery in the tx and that is never questioned as unsafe or unreliable.

|Thread: Adapting X9D to DSM2|
The Hitec Auroa 9 is a good Tx and even that has telemetry capabilities and has enough mixers/functions for most, if you are happy with that stick with it as it is good and reliable. just bite the bullet and sell all DSM then there is no hassle thought and it's done with especially as you don't have any BNF models so even more reason not to do it...
be brave it's the twenty 1st century you know and they used to make future scfi films about it
|Thread: CHEAP small glider at Lidls!|
There's a video about that on ytube
|Thread: Adapting X9D to DSM2|
Got the same age Taranis as you i believe and have fitted the new gimballs (hall effect form T9) and thay fell nice and a vast improvment over the originals a worthy upgrade.
also for DMS2 and DMX I got the orange module that plugs in the the back of the Taranis and that works without issue .
i would update the taranis to the latest open tx (2.1 I believe) + sound packand go from there. the new model wizard incorperated will get you going with the first few basic models.
