Well it turned out to be the esc, tried another one and all is well. The connections by the way were all good so who knows?

My friend has a problem in so far as his battery is fully charged but his motor is just pulsing and not reaching full power, any ideas he can try?

He's rebound his tax.

Thread: Mercury Tiger Moth 33

Here's the little Moth, advance to 1:55 to see her in action.

Absolutely, I've got the little Bangood Tiger Moth, three channel, and she's a little beauty although half the size! As for building it I've not got much time at the moment, perhaps you'll inspire me to try and make time.

Thread: Electric Cars.
12/10/2018 22:02:13

I haven't read any of the other posts!!!

I was looking at a colleague's EV the other day, and noticed there wasn't a charging socket at which point he explained it charged from the engine and when the computer decided it was worth switching to the electric motor it did it automatically.

His car is four years old, this would answer the problem of charging if you live in a tower block etc.

Just thought it was a good idea, shows how little I know of these things!

Thread: Micro Aces Airco DH2
30/04/2018 22:40:47

I've built the SE5a, the Fokker DVII and the Fokker Triplane and they all arrived promptly but I guess they had been in production for a little while so I didn't have to wait for development.

Hi Robin,

I've asked Jon your question on the MA Facebook page through personal messenger, so you'll get your answer soon.

I've ordered both of the new kits, the Triplane is getting close to release as well as the DH2 I think.

I'm sure Jon is working hard to get the kits spot-on before he releases them.

Best to check with the farmer that he is not on the Organic scheme before using any herbicide. He/she could lose his/her Organic subsidy due to your actions.

Thanks for the idea Tom, he did say it would be ok but he may not be aware of your point, so I'll check.

Alex: Another great idea, do you know a way of stopping them from pooing on the patch!

26/04/2018 18:04:54
We have a 50m square patch in the middle of a field with grazing sheep, unfortunately it's getting quite a few broad-leaved weeds in the grass.
I was wondering if any other club had this problem and what they did about it?
Thread: Durafly Slow Poke with aerial shots
23/04/2018 19:51:28

Here's my Slow Poke with a camera fixed into the cockpit, it's running on a 2200 3s pushed right to the front bringing the cg around the 80mm back from the leading edge, this makes for quite a docile model, anyway enjoy the video.
