We could send our old models to China or India, thereby increasing their major contribution to climate change, mind you they spew out so much crap I guess a few bits of balsa will make no difference.

Thread: Fuel Agitation
07/11/2019 10:53:44

The present tank is 56.5 ml square, with an over all lenght of 120 ml I think I will try as Nigel suggestes getting a smaller tank but longer, will scout around the web !!

Interesting regarding the polish, guys, I realise that enclosing the tank in foam would help but this being an ARTF the tank is good fit and I would have to cut away the former holding the tank to fit foam then I would be concerend with regards to loosing structural strenght. I take on board also the need to balance thr prop / spinner.

I thought about cutting away the formers as this seemed the way to go with sponge surrounding the tank but being ARTF was concerned with weaking the structure.

Will check prop balance though !

Hi Guys, I have aquired a Seagull Extra 300 with a Super Tigre 91 up front, No problems apart from the tank as supplied is a tight fit in the formers, the trouble is vibration in tank which in turn is causing bubbles in the fuel delivery to engine which in turn is causing eratic running, Any ideas on how to insulate tank to minimise this adgitation ?

Hi Don, Sincere apologies, I did respond but obviously it did not get through, To answer your question I purchased the kit and all the extras I think around the end of 2017. But I simply do not have the time to start.

Thanks Lads for all the info, Job done

Hi Frank Thanks for that but does the small slot in the hinge run parrale with the trailing cos the hinge can go in one of two ways
Regards Alan
27/01/2018 07:46:16

Hi Guys, I have just started to assemble an Acro Wot. The hinges are a loose fit until glued in, however I notice that each hinge has a small pre cut slot. My question is this, are the hinges glued in with this small slot parrarel with the trailing edges or at ninety degrees to the trailing edge ? Hope this makes sense
