I would be interested to know how you get on. I tend to break blades before I blunt them (ham fistedness), it will be interesting to know how resilient they are.

Let us know please.


"break blades" I hope you mean the tips and not the whole blade?

Thread: Cutting a FG cowl

I presume you have a "dremil" type drill. I have cut FG cowls with the brown cutting disks, always use eye protection!!!!

tack glue a length of say 1/4 sq hardwood to act as a guide, or a steady hand and take your time.

Three posts with the same question?

On which one would you prefer the answer?

Thread: Ceramic Knives, worth the price?
18/10/2012 15:44:51

Ok I did what I suspected I always was going to do and ordered one.

Details to follow.

Mind you I ordered a transmitter life battery at the same time so it will be a long wait.

I see ceramic scalpel knives are now available but the blades are considerably dearer than steel ones. Are they worth it? I go through about half a dozen covering a model.

Thread: Why are we not seeing many twins

I'm in the middle of building one of these a Toucan from the plans service

For a pair of these

A bargain at £21 each 15,000 reves each side should be quiet a buzz

Thread: How the moderators treat forum posts with commercial links
16/10/2012 22:15:57

I like to see postings to links to new and interesting items, as I find it impossible to keep across every retailers new realeses.

In fact I like to see more for example it was nice to see YT post their summer clearence, and if Sussex had a clear out I would like someone to give us the heads up.

Coffee, dont wait as long as I did, this is a lightly loaded foamie with plenty of washout, making it a relatively easy flier

"The only good foamy of the Hurricane is the rather expensive E-flight one, "

Is this based on your experience of the HK one or conjecture on your behalf?

Actually it has no stars because the stars are grey and not filled in blue like other rated products on that website... but hey that is a minor point!

Well, I am not sure which site you are looking at. I am looking at this one.

Under "Bewertungen",

Overall assessment - 4,9 from 5

Expectations fulfilled - 4,9 from 5

Price - performance relationship - 5 from 5

User friendliness - 5 from 5

Design - 4,6 from 5

Tonk on your first link the price is £31.99 and the second link €29.95!!! Has there been a break through in the Euro Crisis when I was having my lunch?

I have a meter that does the balancing but it takes forever. I just balance charge each time and use the meter for capacity and balance state

Spotted this a bit late as they are out of stock but I am sure more will be available. Less than £60 including retracts, (makes my recent Spitfire seem expensive) Hawker Hurricane Mk IIB

WARNING the music on the video is dreadfull

Thread: A gentle video of flying models
