Thread: So what's happened to the August issue?
25/07/2020 13:53:46

As the fb posting above appeared this morning I should imagine it will arrive early next week. Digital edition is up and running.

Thread: Phoenix 2000
23/07/2020 13:41:28

In my MK1 I use an emax bl2220/07 with a 40a ESC, 3s 2200 and a 9x6 prop. I bought the bare kit about 6 years ago, it is my most flown model and out climbs those that have all the bits already fitted.

Hi Paul, if you PM me with your address I will send you a copy of the article. I assume you have the plan.

Cheers, Bob

Very nice Peter, I reckon that there will be quite a few of those built once the plans are published. Next years mass build?

Thread: How far do you travel to the nearest decent model shop?
10/07/2020 11:16:14

Pegasus is about 24 miles from me. Great shop. Hobbies is about 4 miles if I run out of glue or ply.

Thread: Forum weekend prize draw - winners!

The third one has many uses!

Thread: Gluing laser cut kits
07/07/2020 17:10:21

Thanks Erfolg, some test pieces were what I intended with different adhesives. In fact, I did one a little while ago but wasn't too impressed and being a doddery old twit, I can't remember which glue I used!

Martin, I did spot that and will get hold of a bottle and do some tests. Another glue to add to my armoury.

06/07/2020 15:53:25

Have found quite a few threads on the forum regarding this. Why didn't I look first?

06/07/2020 13:34:25

What do you use as a wipe Ron?

06/07/2020 13:11:39

I was thinking more along the lines that the brown/burnt edges do not take glue that well.

06/07/2020 12:25:05

Does anyone lightly sand the mating surfaces of laser kits to get a decent glue joint? I read somewhere that you should but cannot remember where.

Thread: How are you buying your modeling stuff in 2020
22/06/2020 09:28:57

I have decided to spend my money in the UK as much as possible. During lockdown have bought wood from Balsa Cabin and a Blink kit from AWD plus a motor, props and ESC from a couple of online shops. If I am desperate for glue, I have Hobbies about 3 miles away, nice ply too and Pegasus is only 24 miles. We need to support our own economy as much as we can.

Thread: pegasus models amazing service
11/06/2020 07:49:17

Although about 25 miles away, they are my local model shop. Always been great to do business with them.

Thread: What's flying over your house
30/05/2020 13:58:27

I use, it shows military as well and is free.

Thread: Peter Miller asks what next?
28/05/2020 13:54:53

Oh dear! Another one on my to do list.

Thread: HK Paramotor
25/05/2020 16:32:17

Hi Matty, I bought one a while back and have had a few short flights most of which have been less than successful! Now repaired and awaiting for me to get my act together for another go. There is a French company on You tube that has some good videos called Opale Paramotors, have included one below. It has English subtitles and is for just the backpack type but the launch method is the same. I seemed to have more sucess with the ROG launch although you have to be quick to throttle back once it lifts.

Thread: Good day to all
27/04/2020 13:24:35

Hi John, do you mean the depron 36" Long Eazy designed by Mike White? I have a copy of the build article which does not have brilliant photos but the text is ok. I can copy them or maybe scan them for you.

Thread: First "Drone" deliveries next week
27/04/2020 12:13:08

I heard a few weeks back that the drones operating out of Lydd were on behalf of the Border Force lookin for illegal immigrants. The Navajo over Boulogne is probably doing the same. The Spot The Glider website picks up drones all over the country.

Thread: Peter Miller asks what next?
26/03/2020 09:10:48

Just re- reading your two Essential Tips books Peter. Lots of useful stuff and a few amusing bits too. Cheers Bob

Thread: Whippish
23/02/2020 14:08:33

Phil, your workspace is positively tidy compared to mine. Watching your build with interest. My Whippit has been through the wars somewhat!
