Yes that's right, have you got someone to fly with, that would make a really interesting video 🙂

It's an easy build Daren, and excellent value to boot, they sent me this one to test and I loved it. Having flown it for a bit I don't think I would bother with ailerons just rudder and elevator.

Did you see the video on my Channel flying it round the pole, that is tethered?

Thread: Dulux Trade emulsion and varnish??
25/04/2020 22:35:16

Hi Chris,

I've recently painted my electric Mannock biplane with Valspar matt emulsion, brushed on, two or three coats sanding lightly between, then finished with a clear matt laquer, the brush marks are hardly visible.

This is the Final Assembly video, she came out pretty good, especially the film covering on such a lightly built model. Please consider clicking the 'like' and 'subscribe' buttons, it's Free and you won't miss the maiden.

Filming the wings is a bit tricky on these little models, rip it off and start again is the order of the day. smiley

Thread: Crazy Fun in the Back Garden

Thanks Paul, sometimes the fun element slowly goes but as the betting shop adverts say: If you're not enjoying it ... stop. I would say: If you're not enjoying it try a different branch of the hobby!

I was challenged to fly two planes at once round-the-pole but radio control, so here's the result, went quite well I thought, do subscribe for more crazy fun.

Hi all, I too may give it a go in these deparate times lol. Not into foam got to be balsa. A few questions please.In balsa would I have to build it bigger to keep wing loading down ? If I built ribs ,what would I cover it with. Finally who supplies all the micro stuff, like thin control rods, horns etc. Apologies for lots of questions. Cheers

How about building an outer disc with laminated 1/4" x 1/16" and then flat ribs, again a couple of laminations for strength, every couple of inches. Cover the whole with any film you have laying about on the top surface only if you want. Control rods can be small diameter carbon rods, or balsa, and the horns just cut from thin ply. Keep it simple.

Alas no, I saw the Bridge family on YouTube and left a comment of congratulations, I thought it was brilliant, much better than anything I could do, I think they've done three in all?
