Thread: stuck to one Manufactures 2.4Ghz protocol no more
24/05/2017 20:30:01

It doesn't do FASST, so for Futaba transmitters on that protocol, still is incomplete as a full spectrum 2.4 unit.

Falcon Aviation will there. Usually there is a mini swap meet and one or two other small traders, model related type.

I still have this: Made with a set of Precedent T180 wings. A guy called Victor Smith from a club I was in built it - he died many years ago, but might put a 2.4 rx in it and fly it tomorrow. Put new engines in a few years ago, as the original Thunder Tiger 40's were unreliable,

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

Bought t his on ebay for £25. Not sure what make it is, but has a glass fuselage. So not the Seagull one, which I had until an aileron locked out and went in. Just wanted a fun-fighter type model, apart from the H9 Corsair, which I have.
Has a OS 48 Surpass in it.

Hi, I can't make it. Bit busy and as Chris isn't going, decided I need some time at home to sort things out and not sure of the weather, so decided to give it a miss.

Sorry. Next time...

... and any quips that may be said, might be liable for legal action. Best thing for the mags to say is to say nothing, let HH circle round the drain then announce it when it's too late.

I'm thinking of going, but worried about your recent problems when cars were broken into on the car park.

If I go, I'm taking the caravan. as last year, but would only go if I can put my caravan in the same place as last year, near the tree, as Chris, as well.

Is that ok? Don't know how many are camping, but I cannot go if I can't monitor my pitch and fly if around the corner.
If you can reserve mine, Chris's and Austin's space, as last year, then that's fine, If I have to pitch around the corner, I can't come. sorry...

Thread: twin engine model thread

My first ever twin. Is was the earlier version of the Galaxy Models Twin Scorpian, before the tail was changed. Think I put the model in the tip, as it was given to me, flown for quite a bit and was past it.

...and replaced with the newer one, which ended its days when an engine quit and had no height. Model was made into a new chuck model, with the salvaged wings....

I have about 20 twins. Such as P-82 Twin Mustang to Extra Slim twin. I got this last year for a good price. They don't make it anymore, but an ideal twin trainer.

Thread: Spektrum repairs

No wonder! I reckon HH are finished, reputation in tatters, they will go bust within two years. I'm not buying Spektrum stuff any more, was about to purchase a DX20 at Haydock, then they got recalled. Going to buy the Futaba 18SZ sport, which Inwood suggested last w/e at East Kirkby. temped...

I want to buy the new UMX Waco, Wildcat and the Commander, and all out of stock. Even Spektrum receivers are either out of stock, or the prices have shot up.

Vendors on ebay are selling the AR610 for over £70 in some cases, one is even selling one 610 for £99!

One time, they were around £20 for genuine ones, but not any more.

Thread: Combat robot
21/04/2017 21:31:07


Even though this is a flying model forum and some aspects such as motors, etc apply to both, maybe joining an applicable Robot Wars Forum might be more better.

I've always fancied building a robot to compete, but never did. Watched the series Final just a few mins ago and seems that the robots are really powerful and even the bullet-proof arena is not enough for Carbide...

Good luck!
