jason -I If your waiting for it through royal mail please dont forget we are still massively understaffed due to leave and sick leave(self isolating) etc.
Deliveries in shared vans still not allowed and where i am many many places are only getting mail once or twice a week.
|Thread: Sopwith Pup refurb|
Thank you very kind of ya.
Never seen the locator rods done before but thats a blooming good idea.
How thick is that brass? it needs to be fairly strong surely?
good to see you back at it......remember you promised a close up shot of the top of those cabanes and the metal bracketry
|Thread: Essential RC's videos|
You must be doing something right i even have one of your T-shirts
|Thread: new to wash out|
I'm so glad this topic has surfaced again
Ive just started my Albatros D3 wings and the washout on these is looking confusing, but at least you build the front half of the wing first then pack the rear spars and the Aileron tips!! they are like Eagles wing tip feathers!
|Thread: Albatros D3|
Thanks Kevin lots of useful reading there!
Thanks sheepish i shall keep building for a bit and fall back on the research later.
Guess im looking at building a structure like this?
Can anybody point me in the direction of an image or images of the Naked Tail Construction of the Albatros D3 please. Mainly after the horizontal tail and elevator images in the buff.
Cant find any so i'm helping someone can help Thanks
|Thread: Chris Foss Xtra Wot|
i have an old Xtrawot which i brought from Chris Foss's car boot at Sandown, last one in stock for the saturday of that show.
Anyway don't know if its been mentioned, i have a laser 150 in mine and it had to be laterally balanced with a couple of oz of lead on one wing tip
Hope that helps.
|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.
