Thread: Sopwith Camel Electric Conversion
08/09/2019 21:29:03

Hi Geoff, sorry slow response, the motor is the Tornado Thumper 4260/06, with a 4s 5000mah battery, not sure about the rest but 13in prop sounds about right.

Enjoying my newly acquired Hangar 9 Sopwith Camel converted to Electric.

Thread: Microaces DH.2 Evening Flying
24/08/2019 23:20:19

Glad you enjoyed it Josip, I'm currently building the Microace's Sopwith Triplane to add to my collection. They're working on a Nieuport 17 which is one of my favourite planes as well so I'll be pre-ordering that one as soon as it becomes available.

It was nearly too dark but I filmed it anyway!

Thread: 2.5oz spinner on motor?
28/07/2019 14:49:10

Does anybody know if a 2.5oz brass spinner would adversely wear the bearings on a 42mm dia. Thumper motor? Or would I be better off putting it in the cowl?

Thread: Getting New Members
27/07/2019 17:45:48

Our Club gained some new members today in a most enjoyable way, here's my report from today's display at Newton Abbot, S. Devon.

clock tower display 27.7.19.jpg

We had 21 planes on display and we all had really interesting conversations with the general public. Personally I spoke with a pilot of a Liberator and Dakota, an observer of a Liberator both in Egypt, a chap who's Dad flew observer in a Swordfish over the North Atlantic and a GWR retired worker who remember Spitfires at Little Haldon. He also spoke about De Havilland's landing at Little Haldon to be picked up by the GWR bus and ferried to a GWR hotel in Torquay!

Another chap told me of his 250ft O-gauge railway in his back garden and another chap whose hobby was building and repairing trailers of every sort.

All in all a really varied day full of interesting people.

Oh, and Steve Pope photographer turned up from the Mid Devon Advertiser (just over the road) and took quite a few pictures which will appear in the next edition so make sure to pick one up. In fact quite a few people said they saw our display advertised in the MDA and came down especially.

As a final bonus I think Cliff will confirm we had three new members sign up to the club and two may-be's. We also distributed loads of old magazines to interested youngsters and their parents ... great PR for the hobby.

The picture shows our display early in the day, the sun probably helped a lot as well.

If you're looking to find new members I have to recommend this as a pretty good method.

14/07/2019 21:37:38

My latest video from this weekend, three videos in one, all produced on the same morning. And it's a Hellcat, not Bearcat.

Thread: Canard Roll Control Conundrum
30/06/2019 09:00:01

That's good news Cliff thanks for your input, I would have experimented anyway but it's good to know in advance.


30/06/2019 08:40:17

I'm putting together a canard and was wondering if the all-flying forward wing which gives pitch control could be used to provide some sort of roll control by splitting the surface in half and mixing on the tx?

Thread: Fun Morning at Exeter Radio Control Club

Simon: Slow response sorry, I don't know but I could ask the owner if it isn't a Seagull Twin Commanche as Denis suggests.

Cymaz: I suspect your models may be pushing our limits, as with a lot of sites in this country noise is a big issue and must be adhered to.

Josip: I hope I'm not the 'old master' lol?

23/06/2019 22:11:22

Hi Cymaz, our web site is EDRCC.Com, contact Roger or Cliff.
