Thread: Your most reliable engine ?
21/01/2016 14:27:41

thanks guys, I have only stuck the biggest prop I could find on to start her up, but its too cold at the mo. Sounds like I need a 15x 6 then.

This Panic is years old and was electric, then os40 (passed A) turned rates down, then 65LA , now awaiting first run in on sc90


21/01/2016 11:07:29

Does anybody have a SC90 as I'm about to start running it in on my Panic Biplane?

Are they any good? What APC prop? I'm starting with a 13x8 if I remember correctly.

Saito 82 fs start first time after a long wait in the shed for flying time.

And any Laser 150/ 180 ive owned.......all Brilliant.

Thread: Looking For an Albatros

looking for 1/4 scale in the 80-83inch wingspan range. with ic 4stroke power or first petrol model.

ive been looking for respected rc designers, but have not had much luck.

Gary sunderland? perhaps?

18/12/2015 13:20:19

Can anyone suggest a good designer that has plans for a Albatros D3.

Ive search the web but cant find much about.

Blimey looks like we are all going to be very busy then!!

Thread: New Laser engines. What do you want?
17/11/2015 17:48:52

I'm currently installing my 180 laser in a Balsa USA Fokker D7, it should be enough power but a 200 single cylinder would have been better, or 38cc to match the Zenoah that everybody else uses.

cheers dp

Wales have only beaten S.Africa Twice and drawn once in 30 matches....12-6 win last year.

Thread: As the Winter building Season Begins.........
10/10/2015 19:29:51

As its time to get in the shed and start building I was wondering who is planning on starting a new project from scratch, be it plan or kit build....Or is it mostly ARTF builds for the new season?

Or again is it rekindling old unfinished scale projects that have been gathering Dust at the back of the shed.

Personally ive a 1/4 D7 that's still unfinished and a DB 77inch Pup......perhaps I shouldn't have started the Albatros either.

Thread: Mystery Cub to identify
08/10/2015 09:03:01

Have you got the wing struts? They cant be seen in the photo, but from memory I never used them much anyway.

Its a great flyer I had a 52four stroke in mine OS I think. I used to happily fly it inverted and flat spins too.

Sadly long gone now.

Thread: Southern Model Airshow 2015
12/09/2015 16:44:01

I thought I glimpsed George Clooney....pushing a claude butler push bike, but I turned round to double check and he was gone!!. Bit of a cross wind but did enjoy the Panic Team and the Steve Holland Lancaster, warbirds, and Best for me was the Decathlon duo slot amazingly tight syncro flight. But maybe that's my last one.Not as good as Hop Farm and never will be.Shame.

ive had a word with Michael who runs C and M Upholstery near Lords farm, those units are full, but he can give you the contact details of the lady that owns/runs them and she has more units elsewhere that may be of use to you. Cheers dave.

13/08/2015 15:30:03

Aha ! ive just realised who you are wink

Not that we see much of each other, but I'm your postie!!.

Never had you down as a free flight enthusiast smiley

I know Williams has a Unit for rent, but it might be a bit much.

Another long long shot could be opposite Lords Farm, its a bit of a mess down there, but C and M Upholstery .​are in there and there are some empty units. worth chatting to him to find out more.


12/08/2015 20:20:50

try going to Mr Williams at Astonbury Farm , Aston near to Stevenage Golf course, he may be able to help out. Its a small industrial park.

Thread: Acrowot mods....retracts??

**LINK** the only clip I could find blush

23/05/2015 21:00:24

well im seriously thinking about stripping the covering off and having a look at what can be done.

Problem no1 my HK electric retracts are 80 degrees coz I got them for the BT plan bf109 but they are too short in the leg and only 2.75" wheels.

So problem 2 means mounting them retract units in the middle .....wheels pointing to wingtips, but then the Aileron servos need to be moved....not a big job I know but hey ho.
