|Thread: Sopwith Pup refurb|
What i would be interested to know, given your dawn patrol expertise, is the correct way to rig the cabane struts. It just seems plain wrong to follow the BUSA instructions and screw metal plates to the cabane, surely creating a weak spot?.
i have images from the net of ian redshaws pup and the real thing but not sure what thickness steel? i should be using.
Also have the laser cut steel rigging from mick reeves just to give me a clue.....but im hopeful you could give us all a masterclass
no rush though been building mine for 3 yrs already.
|Thread: NEW POLL - Has home isolation prompted you to start trad' building?|
Spent all day building a 1/3 scale Vickers Gun for my long stalled BUSA PUP.
|Thread: Control Horns on larger models|
Those horns do look large mine has the kit horns all round. i must refurb the tank and get her running again Laser 180 up front superb flyer.
|Thread: Ripmax Phase 5e|
Not finished assembling mine yet but so far no complaints at all, everything is as straight as it should be.
Although my rudder hinge slots were so big the fuzzy hinges would not stick with CA so I replaced the hinges with pinned ones and epoxyed them in place.
What batteries do you use on this? 4s ?
Thanks for the info gents.... I now have the ripmax motor and quantum ESC as recommended and have the prop and spinner as well as 2 Newpower servos(don't know what these are like ) and 4X savox 0265mg servos are on there way
Will treat myself for my Birthday and get the Airframe in a couple of weeks.
I would be interested to know what servos you used please.....been searching servoshop this afternoon for alternatives to the rocking horse p**h Ripmax QZ101.
I don't actually have the Aircraft yet but have everything else ready to install.
|Thread: Irvine 61 spares?|
thanks never thought of Ripmax, I found one in an old Irvine 40 in a box with damaged throttle link , so have been frantically looking around the shed for more matching bolts.
As luck would have it I now have two bolts but I'm ashamed to say I've found engines in boxes I forgot I had and they both need repairing.
Can anybody tell me the thread size and length of the bolts for Irvine 61 exhaust please.
Not the new red engine but older type engine.
|Thread: Where are the 50cc engines?|
Valach Motors do a lovely 60cc 4st
|Thread: Ebay sellers...|
incidentally there is also a new in box Fokker D7 I'm watching for the next 7 hrs to see if anybody is daft enough to pay 235 quid...…….in know I loved my one but really!!!
No idea how to post the link but I just found a built Flair Puppeteer with no engine and damaged rudder for...……..wait for it...…£850
|Thread: P&P charges from the USA|
Thanks Kevin itchy credit card syndrome which is always dangerous.
I was looking at the 1/4 scale Nieuport N11 plans and the Third Scale DR1 plans.
Just been looking at Plans and kits from Balsa USA.com and they want $100 dollars as shipping deposit.
So a $40 dollar plan could cost 140 dollars total.
|Thread: Weston Park 2019|
Went Saturday arrived about 10 am, there was a heavy shower around 1pm lasted about 20mins, my brother and I both spent big on bits and bobs and both brought kits from Rapid RC.
Stayed for the night display which was the best ive ever seen in the 3 shows ive been too.
Left at 11.15pm very happy indeed.
shame about the endless 50mph motorway limits got home at TWO am!!!
Would do it all again tomorrow.
|Thread: Laser Engines - Technical questions|
Sorry Chris but this has been built for sometime just never got round to final fitting out. Top wing needs covering and to be honest I'm thinking of recovering the whole thing coz of my terrible paint job. The build stalled when it came to soldering up the N struts as my soldering skills weren't good.
Balsa USA Fokker DV11
Not a Tech Question at all.....Just a great big THANK YOU John
My Laser 180 arrived Today Hoorah!!!
|Thread: All UK Shows|
Do you have an actual website that you can purchase from or is it just from these stalls on show days?
Reason I ask obviously is a quick search of Balsa Cabin and Rapid and there is no mention of your products?!
Interested in the 109 but as stated in previous post Cambrian comes up straight away.
