Thread: throttle to elevator mixing
22/11/2013 19:39:03

It depends entirely on what TX you have.

The first thing to do if possible is to adjust your throttle curve such that half throttle stick movement produces half max revs. You will need a tacho do do that correctly. if you have 5 or 7 point curves all the better because you can make your throttle almost completely linear. After that if you do not have a elevator compensation mix to throttle you may be able to use a free mix to achieve it.

I have used both.2.4Mhz means no frequency clashes,ever (so can be used for surface and air). And the Rxs are one tenth smaller and lighter. And better range. Cheaper sets to start with. Still can't see how 35 was better.

I didn't say it was better I said 35mhz has many advantages and then went on to explain one real world advantage, if you have 35mhz and are happy with it, which many are including some top F3F guys who fly the best moulded gliders available then the fact you do not have to replace working radio IS an advantage. 2.4g also has advantages over 35mhz whether it is better overall or not only time will tell!

No its like saying my old car does the job I need it to do, so the massive advantage it has over a Ferrari is about £100,000. Now that a huge advantage to me in the real world.

At the slope I fly at I would say it is about 75% to 25% in favour of 35mhz it has many advantages over 2.4g

Oh? What would they be?

Not sure this is the right place for such a discussion I would suggest you start another thread discussing them. If you wish to find out.

The fact is that 35mhz is only for aircraft, and anyone using 35mhz for anything else is breaking the law.

Edited By Bearair on 15/11/2013 20:19:55

I know it is off-topic. But I would be genuinely interested to learn of even one advantage!

OK ,cost if you have 20 35mhz rxs that 20 rx's you do not have to buy, plus at least on TX.

Thread: What (Micromould?) Model is This?

Tyro Major

Look at the top of the fus from wing root to fin, either its curved or the angle of the photo makes it so. if it is curved it aint a Jackdaw like ive ever seen.

Thread: Winter hack
12/11/2013 20:11:13

If its ic I always liked a profile type fun model for the winter. They go in the car in one piece. Most can be underhand lunched, all the bits are on the outside like the tank so you can easily see what's going on and repair easily, Ive had the Extreme Flite Sukio and the YT Profile Katana thought the Katana was the best. Both flew great in strong winds as well.

Deltas can be good fun in the winter as well a Mini Tigershark with an Irvine 25 can really get the adrenaline going on a cold morning!

Looks like a Tyro Major to me, but that would be 54inch however lots of DB designs were produced in all different sizes!

Thread: Who remembers Skyway's Models
12/11/2013 11:11:14

I remember Skyways very well, as a kid I spent a lot of my time in there shop in Bristol, I think they were still Unique models then, changed their name when Stan Beasent became the sole owner.

Had a very pleasent conversation with Masons Models this morning and it sounds as if they are developing the business again hopefully with news to follow soon.

I phoned on the off chance he might have the plans for the Falcon V a 70's pattern aircraft and was amazed that he has so that's my next retro model sorted.

Thread: Saying hi
12/11/2013 09:09:00

Hi Dan, and welcome to the forum.

Your radio you have on 35mhz is still very usable, lots of people still fly with 35mhz.

Cant help much with an electric plane sutible for a relative begineer as there have been great advances recently with these types of planes that I have not kept up with. However I am sure someone will be along who has actual experience with them to give you advice. A lot depends on wether you and your mate intend to learn yourself or as part of a club. You will find some threads on here from people who have learnt by themselves and it might be worth having a search to see what the advice given to them was.

Thread: Lest We Forget
10/11/2013 17:49:24

Bent double, like old beggars under sacks,
Knock-kneed, coughing like hags, we cursed through sludge,
Till on the haunting flares we turned our backs
And towards our distant rest began to trudge.
Men marched asleep. Many had lost their boots
But limped on, blood-shod. All went lame; all blind;
Drunk with fatigue; deaf even to the hoots
Of disappointed shells that dropped behind.

GAS! Gas! Quick, boys! — An ecstasy of fumbling,
Fitting the clumsy helmets just in time;
But someone still was yelling out and stumbling
And floundering like a man in fire or lime...
Dim, through the misty panes and thick green light
As under a green sea, I saw him drowning.

In all my dreams, before my helpless sight,
He plunges at me, guttering, choking, drowning.

If in some smothering dreams you too could pace
Behind the wagon that we flung him in,
And watch the white eyes writhing in his face,
His hanging face, like a devil's sick of sin;
If you could hear, at every jolt, the blood
Come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs,
Obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud
Of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues, —
My friend, you would not tell with such high zest
To children ardent for some desperate glory,
The old Lie: Dulce et decorum est
Pro patria mori.

Thread: Competition Flying
10/11/2013 11:32:09

Sorry Steve I was writing while you posted I was trying to point out that it seemed strange to have a discussion about competitive flying in the UKCAA part of the forum, an association that it not primarily about competition.
