I thought you were going to fly it in the raw first. Did You? If so how did she fare?
|Thread: Tornado GR4 (150%)|
Talking of Tornados they are to fly over N Wales for last time this week

|Thread: Digital incidence meter|
Cymaz Sticking needle may be down to dirt. To clean it put some Lighter petrol ( a few spoonsful) in a straight sided container. A jug would be ideal or a mug. Suspend the meter works Tril over the fuel just inside the rim. On a string etc will do. cover it loosely and leave alone few days. Then remove it and look in the container. You'd be surprised how dirty it will be. Then using clock/watch oil and a darning needle lubricate the jewels and other pivot points. Use same method to clean clocks and watches.. Not digitals though. Trike would be even better but try and get some. Ether meths or Methanol would also work.. The fluid evaporates then condenses on the parts and drips off again taking dirt/dust and old oils with it. Dad did a lot of old clocks with that method.. You can't polish the plates though That's the only drawback but if you just want it clean without dismantling this is the way to go. DO NOT be tempted to use WD 40 It dries up quite quickly . Not sure if it leaves a deposit but is only useful for penetrant and water dispersant. Not a lubricant be warned. Good luck John / onetenor
|Thread: Tachometer recommendation|
Mine is a vibrating wire (reed ) type I've had about 60 yrs. Not really accurate but does me.
|Thread: Dancing Wings Hobby "Fiesler Storch Kit"|
I ordered some props on special offer for 1p Yes one penny From HK When delivered the grey card came first, Not knowing what it was I paid the charge. £13:01 imagine my shock when it was the props.. All attempts to recover the charges have been thwarted. Been passed from pillar to post. Not this section being the usual stock reply.. I've given up all hopes of recovery now. BTW I always thought CN was Canada Never thought of China Humph.

|Thread: Model Museum ?|
What model? Ask Brum Museum. It could be in their collection museum. A plane I trust?
|Thread: Engine Identification|
I imagine 3 holes on the other side of the case. Maybe he never got round to putting them in.

|Thread: Drilling ply/balsa|
FlyBoy Well done. I too lost my darling girl in October and know what you mean exactly.. I'm fixing engines for my distraction struggling with stripped heads on capheaded screws. Probably have to drill them but mini drill/multi tool too fast. I may get away with the lower voltage one or use burrs. Any advice welcome BTW.
Works better if teeth cut in the tube. Thin slitting file or V file/triangular
|Thread: Electric setup advice|
Just 2 points A smaller prop Will allow an IC motor to rev faster, Hence the scream. Two / too small a prop won't have enough weight to provide flywheel effect for starting.. Unless of course using an electric starter.
|Thread: Seem like a good option|
These Bang Good ESCs look good but proof of the pudding etc remains to be seen, The reviews are good though
More down the page.
|Thread: Drilling ply/balsa|
Just ensure there is a sacrificial piece of wood (any type) clamped hard to the back of the piece Drill a pilot by all means but as long as the backing piece is tight to one side or the other. This stops breakout(splintering) as the drill emerges And make sure the drill bit is SHARP
|Thread: Running OS engine on methane/propane|
Look at L.P.G. conversion stuff.
Someone came with a knocking car engine. Suspecting bad/stale petrol I took the burner off a gas blowlamp and allowed the gas to jet into the carb mouth with the engine running. the air taking the gas in. Et voila a smooth running engine. Fresh petrol job done. Does this help? Full size use pressure reducing diaphragm valves and solenoid cut offs.Using a modified type of carburetor. Oil in the sump as usual with a gear pump or similar.. Size with safety could be a problem.
