|Thread: Who Else Wants a 63" Lavochkin La7 kit?|
A big thanks to Graham & Dennis for carefully packing up my LA7 and bits which arrived today.
Must show great restraint and not drool on the veneer as the BF110 has to come first.
Brain said yes before the fingers had time to respond
PM sent re the remaining LA7.
|Thread: Workshop for sale with nice house thrown in!|
Now if only that crucial missing "0" wasn't a miss quote
|Thread: Stripping paint|
have used Bi-carb and although less aggressive than bead/grit IMO will remove the paint and destroy your GRP as well. Although not actually tried it on GRP it is still really aggressive. The plus point is it is soluble and bio degradable so can be done in the garden. Ace
|Thread: Are flight stabilisers the answer to landing in gusty wind?|
+1 for the Lemon (have 2) however it doesn't have a failsafe facility Ace
|Thread: Vitaly Robertus|
I thought the 130 was brilliant ,so to surpass that with the 29 just blows my mind. Ace
|Thread: Lidl XL Glider|
Also following with interest as am converting one, I also converted one of the smaller Fox ones a few years back.
|Thread: Redundancy in larger models?|
Cheers both. Can't say i have ever experienced an actual cell fail but have had the spot welded tabs seperate/break and that definatly breaks the circuit Ace
MM, Out of curiosity why would a 5 cell be more reliable than a 4 cell? Surely if a single cell failed it would break the circuit? More cells more failure points or am I missing something in the way a cell works as I thought a pack was connected in series, ie daisy chained? Thanks Ace
|Thread: Receivers - Orange or Lemon?|
I have 10 Lemon receivers 6 -10 channel all faultless and bought through **LINK**
Be aware 7 channel with gyro has no fail safe facility. Ace
|Thread: Does anyone have any advice on batteries?|
Yes, mine charge at 650 Mah then when return voltage tells it won't hold any more, it switches to a trickle 50 Mah. Red light also switches Greeen. So you can't over charge. Ace
Any reason you can't bury a 4 cell AA or AAA NiMh receiver pack with the normally short lead extended by a servo extension of the required length if required? I never take mine out of sport models. Then use the simplest of plug in wall chargers with delta peak for around £10-£12.
If you choose low discharge they will stay ready for weeks or months with high quality packs. Ace
As others - definitely a Sunday Flyer.
The undercarriage is missing a curved cross brace and yes squashed down which is probably due to the fact the original undercarriage ends were located in tubes passing through the fuz and only secured with glue not clamps. If no or little glue in the tubes they swivel very easily hence the squat appearance. Ace
|Thread: The Flying Lesson - Tiger Moth|
Excellent, nice find. Ace
|Thread: wing building help|
How about seting one wing flat with the rib at 90', then prop the other wingtip up to the desired height, then running a 90' block covered in sandpaper back and forth along the proped wing to take the top edge off front and rear sheeting? Then set the rib and brace. Ace

|Thread: Hot wire Foam Cutter question|
I have a sheet of Formica I cut mine from. Thin, rock hard, easy to cut, drill, shape and polish + is an insulator and as far as I am aware is not carcinogenic. Ace
|Thread: The Future May Be Bright But It's Not Orange!|
When o2 sold out to Sky we had to go through the same thing. So my advice is get an address sorted pronto and start informing/switching now. Make a list as you will be surprised at the number Utilities, DVLA, Ebay, B&Q, PayPal, Ebay etc. Only if you can not remember logins or passwords they will send the reminders to your Orange account. Not much use if you have waited until its closed then you will be dead stick over water at night without a paddle. Ace
|Thread: twin engine model thread|
Lark 70 converted to a twin with LA40's. Took my A with this as it was the only serviceable aircraft I had on the day. Simulated dead stick resembled a lawn dart with a well timed flair - passed. Ace
|Thread: How to connect a solenoid to a receiver?|
Sounds like a servo and glider tow release mechanism would fit the bill. If so maybe someone has a simple diagram. Ace
