Thread: SR -71 Blackbird
08/08/2018 09:57:49

P38 to SR71 in less than 30yrs is some achievement and with Russian Titanium and a British (Kollsman?) astro navigation system - I like it.

Cheers all for the clarifications.

Time for tea and Ginger Nuts to contemplate pros & cons options.indecision

Hi Frank, Sorry should have been more specific.

I have a Spektrum DX9 TX, however I use mixture of receivers (Spek, Redcon, Lemon & Orange) My Orange 12's have a SBus port. The Redcons have PPM

Other than the 8 channel converter do I have other options?


06/08/2018 07:25:58

I understand the principal of SBUS and its benefits particularly for a complex wing set up.

What is not clear is if you can use the 4 ch FrSky decoder + channel selector, Bangood, 16ch & FrSky Redundancy 10/20 with say Spectrum?

Cheers Chris, Arr so the tanks are not in their final position. Like you I will be cutting my teeth on a ASP 61 fs powered Dual Ace.

Following with a keen interest as twins have always fascinated me.

Question - looks as though engines are inverted which puts the tank very high in relation to the carb, are you anticipating any siphoning issues or mixture richening on closing the throttle with such a head of fuel?

I like it Martian.

Following with a great deal of interest.

I am surprised it even has a pilot onboard frown

The space and equipment required to sustain them is both expensive, heavy and structurally limiting, plus physically having a person on board severely limits the aircrafts performance.

I have had good results with J B Weld (original cold weld). steel epoxy.

So long as the metal is absolutely clean it sticks like snot to a horsehair blanket - and is hard and good for 300c.


Seems that it may now prove difficult to obtain which is a shame sad

If you can find some grab it - it is good.

Thread: Take off into wind ?
08/06/2018 19:10:47

Our patch is a circle so no problem with wind direction you would think. Fine if someone with common sense sets up first at 90', everyone follows thumbs up However if those lacking C S get set up first because its next to the path, getting them to shift another 60m round falls on the same ears as reminding them not to reach through the prop when connecting a battery while its sat on their lap angry

Looking good Timo thumbs up

I use to make my 1/12th combat's from blue foam covered in brown paper, quick, cheap, disposable but no where near as pretty.

Thread: HK postage charges

Watch out if buying from the global warehouse as anything over £15 will attract import duty and hostage collection fee from the carrier.sad

just looked and the Kinetic is out of stock in GB & EU warehouses.

Thread: Laser Single Cylinder Valve Timing.

Like Martin I think its the RHS on a small capacity Laser. The LHS looks to be 180' out between exhaust/intake.

Thread: Radio systems
19/05/2018 11:14:23

+1 for BEB's sound reasoned advice yes

I started with a Futaba FF9 on 35Mhz and had a few glitches so switched to JR using DSM2 the early Spektrum protocol, which proved to be glitch free. I then purchased one of the last DX9's with dual DMS2 & DSMX. I personally have had absolutely no radio issues at all and it does everything I need and more reliably. Excluding dumb fingers & dodgy switches but hey that effects every make wink

One other major potential issue not mentioned so far that effects all makes concerns extension leads not securely fastened together, working loose or leads not pushed into receivers or making poor intermittent contact over time. I always use 100mm fly leads to help prevent this potential intermittent issue with thread, tape or plastic locks. Would appear in the air as a radio issue. Not saying it was but I genuinely don't believe their are any inherently bad major systems out their today.

Knew the principle but to actually see it in action - fantastic, thanks for sharing.
