  1. According to this site the distinction between hardwood and softwood is to do with the type of seed the tree produces. softwood or hardwood
  2. I'm with Cuban8 on this. Tap the plastic mount; use cap head socket screws and add a locknut. Makes for a proper job.
  3. I did manage to download the manual from MattyB's link. It's OK but not great as the way it was scanned cuts through the text in places and ends up with text "flowing" onto the next sheet. It's all there, but not very tidy. I think OS printed the instructions on a large folded sheet so it's just not easy to scan onto A4 sheets . I tried asking OS but they sent me a link to the FS200 manual! BTW, sceptreflight.com have 3 different test reports on the FS20.
  4. Cheers Paul, I think I'm OK, but will ask if my stock props don't work .
  5. Thanks Matty. Google is obviously working better for you than it did for me!! Have a Happy Christmas.
  6. I wonder if anyone has a pdf. version of the manual that came with the OS FS20 four stroke engine they would be prepared to share?
  7. They look very useful Martin. Do you remember who you got them from? Banggood; Ebay??
  8. Tim, yes I tend to do exactly that myself. Drill a pilot hole first.
  9. I am still using my original HSS step drill (made by Halls of Sheffield) that I bought 35 years ago. Its never been sharpened an is still working well. I also recently picked up a cheap one from LIDL and that works fine too!
  10. I find them very useful for making larger diameter holes in thin material. As Ace says, you can drill from both sides for thicker material. I also find they are good for starting a nice smooth round hole (that you can drill deeper with a standard drill bit once the hole is neatly started). Avoids splintering the wood with a big drill when you start drilling a larger size hole.
  11. Tony, Looking at the photo I believe the blade holder (vertical part) should be rigidly attached to the horizontal (adjustable sliding) part. You could glue it but I would contact the shop for a replacement item.
  12. My fault if its cold in the morning. And the sun low in the sky too. Should be sensible like the rest of you!
  13. Went flying on Tuesday. It was -1 @ 9.00 and dead calm. I managed 5 good flights with the BH Mohawk OV-1. 50 minutes flying time and the only one at the field!
