|Thread: Spektrum iX12|
Hi Don. Yes, I've set Ch. 8 to SW E but am unable to select the same option in Ch. 9. However, SW E is operating both servos, it's just that the one in Ch. 9 does not replicate the same movement as the servo in Ch. 8. Channels 1 - 7 and 9 have all been automatically set to 'N/A' by the transmitter. I assume that this has been pre-defined when I set the wing type to '2 Ailerons - 2 Flaps'.
Hi Denis. Thanks for that but can you give me any guidance on the location of this facility? I can't see any options that do this in the Model Setup screens.
I'm having trouble setting up matching servo travel for flaps and as this is my first Spektrum radio cannot for the life of me see where I'm going wrong.
Wing type: 2 Ailerons: 2 Flaps.
This is the set up for the flaps:-
|Thread: Discoloured canopy|
Thanks again for your input guys.
Thanks for the input, guys. I think I'll have to try the vac forming route but concerned about using vaseline as a release agent. Is there anything else less messy and more easily cleaned off that I can use?
Anyone have ideas on how to renovate a badly yellowed canopy on my P47 please? I suspect this is just and age or sunlight degradation issue.
|Thread: Spitfire Aerial fitting ideas|
Try this - it works successfully for me without blowing off or moving in flight. See pictures:-
Glue magnets into fuse. Cover with cling film. Attach two more magnets over the cling film. Make a paste from epoxy and mico balloon and mould into rough shape over the magnets. Remove when cured. finish shape, make slot for plywood aerial and glue into position . Voila!.

|Thread: 2 Stroke Engine Tune|
Thanks Brian. Looks like I've a few hurdles to jump!
Guys, thank you for your responses. Brian - you describe my restarting problem very well also. I have included a picture of my cowl installation. Is it possible for you to show your 'funnel intake' installation please?
This is my first attempt using a 2 Stoke petrol engine (DLE35RA) and is mounted in a 1/5 scale Spitfire. I've managed to set up the engine OK with the cowl off and can run indefinately with little or no '4-stoking' at any throttle setting. However, when the cowl is fitted, (only approx. 15mm of the head protrudes from the bottom of the opening in the cowl through which the Pitts style exhaust is also exiting) I have a running problem. The engine starts and runs for about 1.5 minutes at around 1/3rd. throttle and then wants to die. Only tickling the throttle and choke will keep it going before it stops altogether. Of course, it's geting a bit warm in there but the engine doesn't appear to be seizing as I can freel rotate the engine after its stopped. Any advice would be welcome.

|Thread: 1/5 Scale Spitfire|
Anyone know how to make/buy a scale fuel cap for a 1/5 scale Spit?.
For clarity I mean the one for the tank in front of the cockpit.

Heard about this site from Paul, our new window cleaner. I'm keen to join as the site is only a mile away from where I live. Any more details please.
