Thread: SIG Kadet LT-40 Build - My first proper build!

Well said Alan.

I don't think that anything in DavidH's post is correct!

Thread: Electric Cars.

I think you will find the design of Fukushima Daichi was carried out by General Electric (USA) who stipulated that the back up generators must be positioned in the basement area in order to reduce pump operating costs An unusual design stipulation I would have thought!

Thread: Car indicators

Those indicators are intended for lane changing. They flash 3 times then stop. Far better than driving behind someone who has changed lanes and forgotten to cancel their indicators.

Paul, Look at Tower Hobbies, among others, to see what is still available overseas. Could it be that Ripmax are just not importing many of OS's range?

Don't disagree John.

Just answering the question asked by the OP.

I do apologise, I thought we where in the argument room.

No you didn't...

I'm sure he did.

Thread: A sticky glassing problem!
31/03/2019 11:59:13

Allan, I have and still do use resin which is well past its "use by date" ( years not just months) with no apparent problems. It's stored in my workshop with no special treatment. The only problem I've ever had (fisheyes) was with some SP113 a number of years ago when Ripmax apparently changed their supplier and manufacturer and ( according to the original manufacturer probably altered the recipe). I would recommend swabbing with Isopropylalcohol in lieu of meths' which can leave a residue (blooming) on the surface. Gentle heating is also a good idea as the problem seems to be on the overlaps where the laminate is marginally thicker.

Thread: What do you guys use to fix teflon tubes to carbon tailbooms?
09/03/2019 23:38:21

Wrap the Teflon tube with masking tape(the cream coloured crinkly paper variety) in the area that is to be fixed and then glue in position with epoxy.

FB3, If the hole for the clevis is in front of the hinge line you will get more up than down for the same degree of servo rotation.

Isn't it the other way round Nigel?

Try Pyramid Models

Sorry I can never get the links to work correctly on this forum.

Thread: How can I reverse a plan to build two wing halves
08/02/2019 15:28:37

If you rub the back of the plan with light oil (3in1) or paraffin it will be transluscent for quite a long period but if you can build quickly then cellulose thinners will be OK for a couple of days. If you don't like those ideas then tape it to a window and trace the key details onto the back. Thirdly take it to a print shop and get them to print a reverse image.

Thread: JR DSX9
22/01/2019 19:51:50

JR Americas did not obtain the IP nor the name of JR. The name,IP, designs and some of the engineers were obtained by Konishi Mokei who trade under the name of RC Depot and had worked with JR for the last ten years in providing distribution and repair/servicing in Japan.The Malaysian based factory that manufactured JR is still operating and new products (TX,RX and servos) are being developed and manufactured. JR products are being exported to the US, Australia , China. It's only the UK and Europe that seem to be lagging behind. If MacGregor haven't got it in stock you can buy from RC Depot online e-Bay

Try Mike Ridley (07708 436163). He will probably be able to help with both spring and lever.

20/01/2019 23:22:12

JR are still trading but MacGregor don't seem to be interested in stocking anything in the UK other than a few receivers.

The only thing required to make a stick spring centrering is a spring! You also need to remove the ratchet from the appropriate stick. There is no separate mechanism.

Contact Mike Ridley of "Model Radio Workshop" who will probably be able to help with the spring.

Thread: Controls reversed when copying.
19/01/2019 11:40:26

Martin, I've done that as well previously with no problems. Just make sure you set one Tx to "Transmit" in the transfer screen and the other Tx to "Receive " in its transfer screen. This step is easily missed. Pages 20&21 of the manual explain it but not as clearly as could be.
