I have got to mention thanks to Ady Hayward who helped and coached me at the Warboys national to get me a qualifying score and his help and advise at the nationals resulted in better scores than I would have had.

Thanks also to Brian for calling my manoeuvres at the national.

Thanks for the kind comments.

Nice one on your control-line win Danny, I did intend to head over but the weekend seemed to finish as quickly as it started!

Cheers Brian, I struggled with the ground handling which hit the scores but once in the air she flatters my flying. I found flying-only for the indoor scale national a great introduction to the competitions, the models are cheap and easy enough to get flying and the other competitors are a great bunch to spend the day with.

Paul, the stuff I have picked up from your Spitfire, Bf109, and Bf110 builds has been grand, your finishing quality is truly something to aspire to - cheers.

I managed to qualify for the nationals with the Macchi, the original one as I haven't got round to finishing the latest one. Bob Fletcher kindly took and passed on some rather good photos of her:




I hadn't been to the nationals before, I enjoyed the scale flying competitions leading up to the nationals and qualifying for the nationals was a nice bonus. Flying in the nationals was an almighty buzz, the organisation is fantastic, and the whole event was simply mind blowing. Credit to the BMFA, so many events going on, so much to see, and all running like clockwork - it has to be experienced to be believed!

I have made a couple of simple changes for competitions; switched to a 3-blade prop which is a Ramosa Vario-prop 15 x 8, and I have locked the tail wheel to assist with the ground handling.

Thanks Danny.

I finally got round to finishing off the flying only clips:- Flying Only

I didn't get much usable footage of some models as the anti-shake feature on the camera seemed to focus on the roof structure and the models came out very jerky.

I only got a few usable clips of your SE5a, she looks gorgeous in the turns and it's great the way the registration on the underside of the wing shows when she banks away.

Great to meet you and the other folk on Sunday, it was truly inspirational seeing your models, they look so good especially flying.

I'll second Danny's comments on the competition, the flying only is easily accessible with an off-the-shelf micro model. I entered the flying only with my Micro Aces Fokker D.VII, it's a bit more effort to get flying than Parkzone or E-Flite micros but it's a nice intro to depron models and flies well.

It was my first scale national, although I read the Scale Rule Book I was't entirely sure what to expect but I got plenty of helpful guidance from the organisers and fellow fliers. The judges were very good, helping settle my nerves and really getting the best out of my flying.

My Dad and I took a load of videos, we aren't too au fait with videos cameras but here is a compilation of clips from the scratch build modes:- **LINK**

I'll get the clips of the flying only models put into a compilation and posted over the next few days.

Thread: FUTABA S_BUS help needed
31/01/2019 09:13:45

You're not the only, my poor little receiver got an hour or so of verbal until I realised!

I tried the SBUS2 port and the decoder seems to work fine in that as well, I use the FrSky decoders but I can't see why the Futaba one would be different. I'm not sure whether using the SBUS2 port for SBUS devices is good practise so I only use the SBUS2 port for telemetry devices.

30/01/2019 11:39:07

Have you put the receiver into mode B (the instructions for this come with the receiver)? Mode B makes channel 8 the SBUS port and leaves channels 1-7 as normal. The R7008 receivers that I have bought were initially in Mode A which is 8 normal channels.

I can't remember whether the SBUS2 port (underneath the servo output pins) works with the decoders, I'll check later unless anyone else can confirm it in the meantime.

Only half a dozen of us got out flying yesterday, I got to fly my TN Typhoon and one of my flying buddies (Ian) took some snaps:

Hello Beth,

Thank you kindly, the handset and receiver set arrived on Tuesday. It's just the ticket for a nice little project that I've got on the go.

Looking good Simon and great to see that she is still flying, I keep meaning to get the panel lines and weathering done on my one. It's been 2 1/2 years and she has had plenty of flights so I ought to get on with it especially as there is an article about weathering in the latest issue of the magazine.

Cheers Paul.

She is pretty good in the wind, is was a bit breezy when I flew her, 10-12mph, and she was excellent. I also flew my VQ Models Fiat G59, which is a great windy day model, and the Macchi seemed marginally more stable. To be far, it was windy without being particularly turbulent so ideal for warbirds.

I have neglected to keep this thread updated over the past few months, mainly due to only having brief spells of working on her. She's almost ready for painting, a couple of coats of primer have been applied and sanded back. You won't fail to notice that I ran out of grey primer, I should have gone and bought another can but I had a can of cream coloured primer to hand so I used that. I'll give her a dusting over with primer so that the base colour is consistent, probably the cream colour as there is still plenty left in the can.

Before painting I'll get her put together ready to fly so that the control horns and linkages get painted at the same time.

I had my original one flying at the weekend. We didn't get the camera out until the light was fading so the pictures aren't all that great..

Cheers men, great suggestions, good tips for the next build. My Dad rectified the T-nut that went awry using the screw to pull it in as Ken suggested.
