This was it, Never took a photo of it, until just now, but still flying it - has a 2.4rx and lipo in it now.

Another good model was this. Flies even better, and much more power. And looks more scale- in fact it is.

Not made any more, was called Partenavia by Hobby Lobby.

I have a Cox .10 No big deal. Would fancy a 9 or 14 Cylinder radial, though, such as this:

This is the second incident I have had with this receiver. A fellow club member has a small sledge hammer in is van. Most satisfactory. Not much in a modern receiver.

What rx was it?

Agreed, get an approved electrician to go through the entire household circuit, especially if the installation is old - i.e, 30 years plus.

Many fires have started when old wiring has been damaged over the years, and importantly, if your consumer unit is an old fuse box - get that changed to RCD and MCB board as soon as possible - it can prevent you getting an electrical shock, if something went wrong.

Maybe I've got a good idea:

In a magazine, there is no plan included, but, there is, inside a free plan, but not in the magazine.

If the person wants the plan, the person will email requesting one, will send him/her a free plan, with just a 2nd class postage paid for by the magazine.
(To avoid non-purchasers of the mag getting a freebie - there is a code in the magazine, which much be included when the order is placed.

If you do not want the free plan, then you don't order, so say, from a monthly publication of 30,000 units, normally, you would need 30,000 plans. But if only 400 wanted the free plan that month, or whenever, it would cost much less than having to include 30k of plans in the magazines - both would be environmentally viable - less waste and less cost for the publisher.

What do you think?

I've still got the original grey one, it was my first electric twin model and flown it hundreds of time. Still using the same motors, but on 3s Lipo, which is too light, so have to use a 4000mah 3s to compensate for the same weight batteries it used to fly on: 7 cell 1800mah nicads - which just about flew it.

On 4000, I'm getting 30 mins, and only need 1/2 power as full power is silly!

Also, the electric cooker must have a local isolation, if you use the switch on a socket with a full load, it will arc, especially if you overload it.

Overloading causes fires, and can invalidate your house insurance.


21/02/2017 20:03:53

Ideally the total load of any one appliance must not exceed 13amps, which is the rating of a single appliance. So a 3Kw kettle will draw 13amps at UK voltages. If using 4Kw, then you will be overloading that socket, unless as you indicated, you have 2x 2kw ovens, which is fine, but normally ovens are wired into their own MCB/RCBO not on the ring main.

Added to this, the supply wires must be a high capacity. (and the MCB a 40A one)

Most of the plans in both RCMW and RCM&E magazines, I find are not very good (to me, anyway). Some are good, but some I can't reason why anyone would want to built that.

Maybe its a good thing, but rather than have one poor plan per mag, a larger model design every 2 or 3 editions, every quarter, maybe.

Also, I don't think it will affect sales, as most people don't build, anyway, let alone from a plan. Most plans probably go in the recycle bin, and that cost is better served in the content instead.

All done, power in etc.

Have a charging station as well, charger for each shed.dscf1371.jpg

I just finished another shed, ran out of space - as you do!.

Needs power going in and other things which I will do tomorrow. The hard bit is done.

The BMFA Class I reckon are a waste of time. Either there is something I wanted to buy, or sell, as there is no guarantee like on ebay, or as before, I wanted to buy a Sbach off someone, and he accepted my offer. When I said I will pick it up next day, he said he had sold it to a friend - as he wanted it. Very dishonest.

Then you get the scammers - and as some have found out, you are left minus your goods and also out of pocket.

Unless some action is taken to tighten its structure - I'm not using it.

Strange of huge U S of A is, and most videos you see on the U tube of flyers in USA flying off car parks, roads and unsuitable areas.

As Cymaz said, you really would be a much better, both in interest and environment by joining a club.

Have you tried a wing tip DLG type launch?

If you did that, Chris, probably the wing tips will pull off.

10/02/2017 21:49:15

I have two, bought another new one, and still the original - going even after a mid-air. Flown both after each other...

Mine gets away ok. Just use a decent battery.
