|Thread: First maiden flight|
All of the above but height is your friend it will give you time to think.
|Thread: Easy Airfield Rigging for Biplanes|
My Seagull Gypsy Moth came with similar supports, it keeps everything tight when fitting and removing the wings a simple but effective solution.
|Thread: Transmitter for a Mature beginner|
The new Spektrum DX6 may be the way to go it has an audible timer and warnings which may help a novice.
|Thread: Folland Gnat down at Oulton Park Show|
A bad day for British aviation indeed. Condolences to the family of the pilot killed at car fest. The pilot of the Spit down at Biggin Hill has only minor injuries thankfully but the aircraft looks pretty beaten up.
|Thread: Seagull DH60 Gipsy Moth|
Just a small update on progress the Saito 82 has been bench run (started first time after priming) fuselage fitting out is complete just the wings and engine to fit tomorrow.
|Thread: The Ten best And Worst Aviation Movies|
Twelve O'clock high
The sound barrier
Battle of Britain
Red tails (a truly awful film)
|Thread: DLE20 running problem|
I would think the oil in the fuel would keep any diaphragms lubed up in a carb.
More likely than not its an air leak the carbs on these things are cheap and nasty.
|Thread: Who's going to Cosford?|
All in all I thought it an excellent show, sure there are improvement's to be made but done the less very good well done all at the LMA.
|Thread: WOT 4 CG and adding nose weight|
I bought one of these Mk2 + wotty's at Weston this year. My old foamie Wot 4 flew straight out of the box the new one did not. I found mine very nose heavy even with the battery pushed as far back as possible.
|Thread: Seagull DH60 Gipsy Moth|
I reckon so cymaz Saito 82 it is.
Just been looking at a Saito 72 more or less same price as a OS 62. I'd like the engine to stay within the cowl I think the 82 is the same size as the 72.

Just picked one of these up at the LMA show at Cosford today. Going the I/C route just watched the YouTube vid of one flying with an OS 62 fs looked good with that engine very scale performance I think anything bigger than an 80 would ruin it. I think the 62 will be the one for my Moth.
|Thread: Imax B6 charger|
Nice little charger the Imax, I use one to charge all of my batteries and so far its been trouble free.

|Thread: Student and Instructor|
ChrisB taught me to fly a few years ago and I am indeed grateful for his training and patience. I think Chris taught me to fly in about 12 weeks and I do see where his is coming from as I have noticed a few new faces at the club then you don't see them again or they turn up with a model that's not fit to fly.
|Thread: Saito 91 revs drop at full throttle|
Check the fuel feed pipe to the carb, if you see air bubbles in the fuel then you have an air leak. Had the very same thing on my Wot 4 XL running a ASP 1.20 fs found a very small hole in the fuel tank bung.
|Thread: Long Marston Show|
The best show I've seen at LM so far. Bought a few bits but no new models but was tempted.
|Thread: OS46AX won't start after layup|
You may find that the fuel inlet at the carb is blocked with old gungy fuel, blow it out as described above and it should run. Had the same problem with an Irvine .53 that had not been used for about a year and its all that need doing to make it run.
|Thread: P47 elevator linkage|
One of our club members had this very same model and lost it due to this problem. I think it was on its 3rd or 4th flight when it just went straight in without any warning. The model shop he bought it from did offer a refund in return for the bag of bits so he was quite happy with the outcome as they knew about the problem.
|Thread: Flying Alone|
On the rare occasions I get to the field and no one is there I'll always keep my mobile phone on me just in case but I do tend to fly my lecy models when flying alone.
