|Thread: Question about HK checkered covering film|
Another method i found worked well for me was to use a pin in one corner to lift the polythene backing off.
|Thread: Giant Shark - what's happening?|
The HK film looks, feels and goes on the same, it even has the same code numbers and at between £6-£8 for 5m is also excellent value. Like Bob I just wipe the finished job with Meths to remove any glue that has seeped out. A small priced to pay for polyester film at just £1.50 per meter. Ace
Fair play and credit to GS my missing roll of film arrived this morning 1st class

Not sure they were the first?
Should have read the whole OP link first which acknowledged the AUS effort near the bottom.

|Thread: Giant Shark - what's happening?|
I have now had an acknowledgement to my 3rd email re my missing film but only to tell me someone will get back to me shortly, but to be fair they have at least taken the time to respond. However pushing it back up the hill will only add to their workload through double handling - I wait and hope and continue to beleave the glass is half full.
I can't fault their order processing speed. Order placed Thur 30-4, deliverd Tues 5-5.
Not so good is I am 1 roll of film short. OK not a huge amount £4.51 but all I recieve are automated email replies thanking me for contacting them and they will respond within 1 working day - erm not so good.

Don't limit your thoughts to just things made from plastic. Check this out metal is on its way, then the sky really will be the limit
|Thread: Futaba not compatible with Futaba/When is a bargain not a bargain|
Hi Graeme, Have you thought about one of these ? Ok you will need a receiver to match each TX but you can then remove yours once he is compedent to fly solo. Seems a much cheaper solution without any compatability problems, will even work with different makes of equipment. - Ace
|Thread: Options for a first aerobatic plane!|
You won't go far wrong with a Wot 4, however you may wish to consider a Black Horse Travel Air. Cheap enough, open engine bay for a 46/52, 61" WS which is 9" larger than the ARTF wot 4 and fly's really well, I passed my B with one. Ace
I use a Vapex 3300 mah 4.8 in a Tucano running 7 futaba 3152 digitals and have no issues, plus have never got close to running the battery out even in a prolonged days use. Of course mine are sub c and although you don't mention what size yours are, at 3300 /4.8v they must be? Sub c due to their size and chemistry are good for delivering huge loads without significant voltage drop. If they are sub c then I can't see any problem.

I would also reduce the dihedral to say 1 1/2" under each wing tip otherwise the inbuilt stability will induce adverse yaw when you try and use the ailerons.
|Thread: Which is your most practised manoeuvre?|
I continue to strive for a perfect stall turn with entry/exit from inverted and large circular outside loops(bunt), the heart stopping way towards the ground. Of course when conditions allow touch and go's on skis
