Hi Dennis and Andy

I think I'll go with increasing the wingspan to start with. Looking at 6" to start with and fitting some savox Servos that i have sitting around as the stock i don't trust. I'm happy enough with the stock motor and esc for the moment and 2s 800. The undercarriage must go i think too. I haven't had issues with it bending though don't want to worry about a not so smooth landing stopping future flights

Hello everyone

Before i go daft cutting and extending i would like to put across what I'd like to do for your opinions

I have the ill-fated Wot4 mini. I'm thinking of extending the wingspan a little and also making the leading edge thicker and flatter to slow her down a little and attempt to gain more lift.

Also going to shorten the length of the ailerons

Anyone else changed much on there's

I've flown with both Futaba and Spektrum many years though over the last couple of years been using my trusty Hitec without any problems. It's sweet and simple ☺️

Has anyone first hand experience with the Sfm Fournier? Any recomendations etc.

Will my spare 750kv be adequate with 40amp esc and 3s 2200 etc.

So engine out and head off. Not good news. Looka a mess with lots of shavings etc. New engine time. It's done me well. So on the look out for a Os 32 heli engine.

Thank you everyone for your help

So was out flying today and whilst at around 100 ft high my helicopter engine changed not then started bogging down. I didn't get the chance to land before it had cut out though successful autorotate followed. I have managed to start it since but it only idles for a few seconds. Now it won't start at all. Fuel is clean and new, new plug and carbon looking clean.

Any ideas?

So I'm currently using Model Technics contest 10 with a Os 32. The question is if have a gallon of Model Technics Gx-5 i have sitting here. Is it ok to use it? Will there be much power difference etc.

Thank you.

Thank you Peter that's cleared everything up. The engine has been in bits for years since its last flight. Recently bought new internals and want to be gentle to start with.

I'll look into the headloaders as they would be very beneficial.

Thank you

Ok I'm going back to flying my helis in a scale like manner. I have just rebuilt the little Webra 33 in my Ergo 30 and really want to run some fuel through her prior to flying. Is it safe to run a helicopter without blade's? Or what do you recommend. Was thinking of hovering?

Thread: MacGregor/Jr RS10DS bind?
29/03/2017 15:02:35

Ok thanks for the information. I was given the combination of JR and futaba rx/tx by a very experienced modeller and told i could bind but that doesn't seem the case,


29/03/2017 13:19:59

Trying to bind my Futaba Skysport 6 with the Jr RS10DS with no good results. Anyone know the correct bind process?

Field still waterlogged though for us flying large scale it's not so bad with the larger wheels etc. Hopefully drier weather will permit more flying shortly. I'm hoping a long dry summer with many sorte's

The Huskey has a curved fin Scott, yours is straight at the top

Still looking

Ah ok, i'll keep looking too, tonight is dedicated to finding her somewhere out there. Thanks

28/03/2017 19:01:29

Just looked at the T240 and the windows and parts of the airframe are different so back hunting the plan etc . Hoping i can find it somewhere. Similar to the Lanier Husky. Could it be that the plan has been changed slightly by the builder?
