|Thread: First generation acrowot tail fin|
Would be helpful if you could post a photo of the damage Mark.
|Thread: Synthetic instead of caster oil?|
As Jon says ... I also only ever use synthetic now, much cleaner engines and models
|Thread: Funny caption ideas?|
Hey .... !! Someone's nicked the flowers from your previous glider's headstone !!
|Thread: Probable scam?|
I had a suspicious email supposedly from TV licensing, claiming they were unable to take my direct debit payments, and could I please provide my bank details. No name, just 'dear customer'. ...... sure enough when I checked, my payment had gone out, ...obviously a scam. Scares me how many elderly people may fall for this, best spread the word !!
|Thread: Recommend a Hotliner Please|
As Gordon said, Hotliners seem to be scarce in the UK at the moment. I have a 2mt RCRCM Hornet with 'electric' fuselage from Rich at T9 Hobbysport, it goes ballistic ! I can't find it on his website anymore, but I'm sure he would be helpful if you give him a ring.
|Thread: BMFA Membership Card|
I've read on other forums we should get them in January.
|Thread: 'Starloc' adhesives.|
Hi all, just to update.
My order from 5 Star / Starloc has arrived, so it's all good
Hi all, thanks for your comments.
I have been in touch with Will and Gervaise, and after some unavoidable delays, my order is said to be now on it's way. Would certainly be good to see them at the shows again
Has anyone ordered from here ? They used to sell the 'Starloc' adhesives at the shows, but not seen them for a while. I liked their product so found their website in Bulgaria. Site looks legit and up to date, but still waiting for my order after 3 weeks, and no answer to emails ; background-repeat: no-repeat; background-size: contain;">🤔
|Thread: Is it just me or do we all take ages to do things?|
Hmmmmm ...... and why am I on here reading this when I've got models sat in my workshop waiting for me to finish ? ...... all in good time ... all in good time ...
|Thread: SC 91fs will not stop.|
Ok thanks JDB and Jon. I will have a play with the needle settings, and check again for air leaks. Also as you say Jon, the engine runs well, so if all else fails I will leave it alone. The engine idles really nice and slow, so its easy enough to stop by throwing a rag into the prop.
Hi all, after flying 2 stroke glow and petrol for many years, I now fancy a dabble in vintage. Can anyone tell me why my SC 91 four stroke glow will not cut when I fully close the throttle ? It just seems to be content idling away. I have set the needle settings to manufacturers instructions, also looked down the barrel when closed, and it's definitely closing fully with no inlet hole showing. Also checked inlet for air leaks, all seems ok. I am using the version where the crankcase vent recycles the excess oil back into the inlet manifold, I have even replaced the fuel tube on there to be sure of no air leaks.
Until I am ready to install in a vintage, am running the engine inverted in a Ripmax Bolero, runs great all across the throttle range, but still will not stop when I close the throttle, but I wouldn't have thought the engine position would have any effect ?
Any ideas please ?

You could try 4-Max, they have recommended setups, you may find something similar to your size of model on this page.
|Thread: What's your favourite way of attaching a canopy?|
I'm not a big fan of canopy glue, but it has worked for me. First I lightly key the gluing area with fine sandpaper, both painted and film covered surfaces, then apply the canopy glue, hold down the canopy with masking tape, then here's the important bit ... leave the glued canopy undisturbed for 48 hours. Takes a while to fully set I know, but works for me.
Nah, ... 12mm cavity wall bolts, can't pull out then
|Thread: Latest CAA Update|
Thank you to the BMFA and all others involved
|Thread: Prop failure|
On the subject mentioned earlier of the ali spinner drifting on the back plate and the 'cut out' edge fouling and digging into the prop hub, I've had this happen with and without using a starter. Now I 'peg' the back plate by drilling and tapping into the edge where the spinner edge sits in the groove, and fitting a m3 x 5mm grub screw, securing with a drop of thin cyano. I then fit and line up the spinner and prop against the back plate to give good clearance so as not to touch the prop hub, then file a notch in the spinner back edge/rim to fit over the grub screw. Never moves now, even when using heavy duty starter.
|Thread: Good luck to the BMFA|
At first I looked at the figure of '6000' responses with disbelief, and thought surely it was a typo error, but yes I've read the same elsewhere. Where were all you other non-responsive modellers in our time of need ? Sadly in that case we are still surrounded by members who 'just do nothing' ! and leave it to others to take up the slack. It's been well publicised in clubs and our BMFA magazine, and website. It only took a few minutes to complete. I'm sure they must have had access to a PC to fill in the online response page, if not their own then a family member's or a mate's.
I've been a modeller for 50 + years, and others for even longer. For many of us it's been a labour of love, enjoying the hobby, and selflessly helping others along the way, much so that's it become a big part of our lives. So for those who still 'do nothing', and leave it for others to make the effort, if our great hobby goes belly up then you will have no right to complain afterwards !
|Thread: So what is really the truth then CAA ?|
Found this shared on my club's FB website
|Thread: Reichard Models|
Try Rich at www.t9hobbysport.com I've had a few gliders from him. They had 'Reichard' gliders in last time I looked on line.
