Thread: Futababa 14SG - No Power

Don’t forget to check for black wire corrosion in tx especially from plug onwards. Seen an expensive JR go like fungi in under 3 years ! Colin

Thread: The big question, WHEN

He’s as clear as mud ! However , I agree with Cuban as above ! Family members only! So we can fly alone in a club scenario with an organised rota ! Disenfect padlocks 🔐 etc ! Anything else will just mean NHS workload will go through the roof and family members will suffer in approximately 2 weeks ! Colin

Thread: Align A10 for beginner
04/05/2020 16:30:12

Align.com have manual to download. Just done it so definitely works ok. If you are finding it hairy use rates on all 3 main controls and take top end off pitch and throttle until you can manage! Colin

Just a thought but if you have left a battery connected in the tx all these years it is highly probable that black wire corrosion has gone through the boards ! You need to check thoroughly! If no battery left in - no prob ! Colin

Just watched the Mossie. I remember going to see the NF2 rebuild in Yorkshire decades ago. Impressive ! Tony was cutting a scarf joint on a wing spar with a normal rip saw !!! My wife picked up the pilots releif tube apparatus from the floor and spoke into it , asking Tony , is this the pilots radio ??? He told her No !! The pilot peed into it in flight !!! She was nearly sick !😂😂😂😂😂😂 Still did laughing thinking about it !!! Colin

Thread: Another newbie asking for help
06/04/2020 15:03:31

I may have flown one many years ago in my indoor club . I don't have fond memories ! RC Universe have some information , but if you wish to learn to fly a helicopter , then a club is the way to go. If you want to go alone then a Blade Nano RTF is he the way to go , and you an fly indoors at home. Lots of online support too. Colin

For what it's worth , those bobbin type rubbers were in use in IC multi racer boats in the 80's ! A Speedo cable type shaft took care of wobble at the shaft end. They made a big difference to the noise ! Very few multi boats these days unfortunately ! Colin

Richard. E Max GT 4020/07 in Axiome. Super motor. Colin

16/03/2020 09:17:48

Richard ! Yes a lot of motors are the same . Badge engineering as you say. I have the Quantum in my Wots Wot. Good verticals ! I have an E Max on 5 cells in an Axiome bipe. From Robot birds - can't remember the number but it's larger than the Quantum. Good luck ! Colin

14/03/2020 18:20:04

Richard. That’s really interesting ! That would seem to indicate a motor problem I agree ! What brands have given the problem ! Would the Quantum power your new model ? Colin
