Thread: Galaxy models mystic - help on electric conversion
07/06/2019 21:02:16

Hi Bob , I am still on the 4 strokes as long as I can will resort to electric at some point I suppose 😂 . From what I have seen the Mystic is a really nice flying model and from the construction it looks to be able to take some serious abuse not like some of the modern ARTF we get today.

Can't make Weston this year but should be ok for Cosford.

Hi David, I am currently building a Mystic that I got from Pegasus Models I remember these from years ago back in the late 70's early 80 ' s and always fancied one. Have seen them fly with ST2000 and 90 two strokes but I am going for ASP 120 FS (purchased from Bob Cosford at Weston Park, hi Bob)

The kit was laser cut and good quality wood, but this is a 70's design and is a 'builders kit' you don't just glue pieces together you have to fettle them to fit first, instructions are limited but ok if you have built before. It's big so you will have no problem fitting lipo's etc .

Can't help to much with electric set up but Bob knows his stuff, my knowledge of electric set up would fit on a pin head 😨. I did buy a Turnigy G 110 and dlux HV speed controller for Seagull Yak 90 , loads of power but never finished the project sill lying in the shed.

Cheers Paul.

Just wondering if it's worth a test flight with the cowl removed , that would remove any possible restriction.

The bending down to pick it from the doormat is not the problem ,it's the getting back up that's the issue 😂

We rc modelers are all passionate about our hobby and at times things can get a little heated but on the whole the mods do a good job of keeping us under control but still allow a good debate.

Compare this forum to Facebook which I have recently had the misfortune to use, the subject matter and foul and abusive language is beyond belief , this forum is for all ages to view and use and to be fair the mods are doing a good job of keeping things in order.


Thread: Glitches and crashes
21/05/2019 21:13:20
Posted by Tim Kearsley on 21/05/2019 19:43:53:

Hi Paul,

The model that went in today had an electronic switch, so no moving parts (I don't trust mechanical switches). I used a separate Rx NimH pack in this model which I had charged the night before. I too have used Spektrum for at least 10 years, with no issues. It's the loss of two models with unexplained glitches which has made me doubt the Tx. It could of course be nothing to do with the Tx, but how can you tell?


Hi Tim, I agree once you have checked out the the usual suspects it's time to get the tx checked out. There are some good spektrum service about at reasonable prices, even if they find nothing wrong it's piece of mind and you can start to look for other causes. As a by the by I have only had one rx tx failure since messing about with radio control back in 1969 and that would you believe was with a multiplex reciever 😱 . Over the years the majority of my problems have been with servos not centering, drawing too much power or on off switches. Tracking down the cause of the problem can be a bit of a black art and needs a step by stem approach to find the culprit, a bit like NCIS on the TV 😂 ain't this hobby fun 😂😂😂😂


21/05/2019 19:31:49

Hi Tim , logic rc are the dealers for spektrum and I think that they also offer service. I like many have been using spektrum for years without any issues, check out servos for drawing excess current or stalling , battery packs etc. As your first crash went in under full power it does not sound as though the failsafe activated due to loss of signal, don't forget to give the on off switch a good check (I have a particular hatred for switches) Halfords electrical cleaner is great for cleaning switches and servo extension lead connectors.

Best of luck Paul.

Thread: Poll for who intends to register.
17/05/2019 21:49:08

👍 I intend to continue flying so will register and pay whatever the final charge is. Not a happy chappy but I have no intention to break the law, my protest days have been left behind back in the 60 ' s . Just my opinion so have no problems with others who feel the need to protest, my flying days diminish with age so I can't afford to miss too many 😱.


Thread: Digital subscriber versus subscription number

Hi Mike, recommend you post your question on the 'subscriber thread' as I know Beth keeps an eye open for new posts there your post might be missed otherwise

Cheers, Paul

Thread: RC Mercury Marauder?
02/05/2019 10:21:38

Hi Simon, a daft question just popped into my head (again) presumably the wings will be tissue covered as per original. The only tissue that I have seen has been in small sheets no where near long enough to cover the wings in one piece, are there rolls of tissue covering available or do you join it in some way? Probably an obvious answer somewhere but I just can't see it 😨

Quit the hobby over this ? Not a cat in hells chance, family next door got their house robbed last week in broad daylight, get a grip.

Well said John , beginning to feel that this thread should carry a health warning !!! You can feel the blood pressure of some of the posters hitting dangerously high levels, time to Google local yoga classes 😉👍

Thanks Gary I was sure I spotted it somewhere 👍

01/05/2019 21:37:02

I am sure I read somewhere that the age limit was a minimum age, can't remember where but don't have the will to trawl through all of that again 😩
