Thread: Vintage Propellers
29/12/2013 18:11:57

M.K. used to be best prop on market, as long as they have been stored out of frost and sunlight they should be ok

I still have a few which are as good as new. A.P.C. props are good and graupner still do a good prop both nice and stiff.

hello Jamie

looking good, just a question if I may, what exhaust will you be using, some of the stock ones are very noisy and headers and cans are used to bring the noise down. this could mean altering the fuzz to fit them. its just a thought not a criticism

Thread: Shed nearly flooded
23/12/2013 21:46:24

reclaimed railways sleepers do a good job as a shed base

quite cheap also, come ready treated, widely available

Thread: Precedent Hi Boy series 2 trainer
23/12/2013 15:55:37

hello ian

hi boy will be fine with standards, no need to save the little weight smaller servo's would give you.

mount them sideways in wing, and line cutouts with balsa, or in centre if space allows. its not dull at all, that depends on c.g. amount of movement and powerplant, most of all on pilots ability. as its blowy where you fly I would think about putting a f/glass bandage on wing centre. two piece wings don't work once airborne wink

Thread: Which hot glue gun do you use and which do you recommend?

Thread: Pitts Model 14
20/12/2013 11:29:14

look like they pivot to me martin, agree with your thinking.

if car and storage allow it i'd go for 1 piece wing

rigging and derigging at field is one of the downsides to bipes

looks great I wish you well with it , like colour scheme also

Thread: SAFE OR not so Safe? Using electronic stability aids
20/12/2013 08:24:34

I must have fell asleep.surprise forums, clubs, model shops, etc .have always promoted flying safe and in an appropriate area. clubs encourage new members, most allow free visits and offer free tuition. thousands of people have taught 11, 12 year olds myself included. the hobby is full of people who are only to happy to help others. I strongly suggest your preaching to the wrong audience

Thread: New FPV rules effective March 2014

this thread has been up and down? ....... in our club of 112 members we have one who is interested/going to try FPV .......we are in controlled airspace and as such have to go with the ANO order would be interesting for to find out(if possible) how many forum members are interested and intend having a go with the FPV's......we had a visit from a non member who had purchased some equipment...and when we pointed out to him the ANO/BMFA STUFF he said he wasn't really interested in rules and reg's and I wonder how many people-young and old will be getting some form of FPV for Christmas and wont have the slightest idea about any ANO's/BMFA'S or CAA's.......when it go's pear shaped it will be the rule abiding flyer's who will be tarnished with the brush.....

ken opinion dept...not intended to upset any readers........

PS......i'll be amazed if someone can see an 18"dia FPV machine 1000ft from the ground.......


all clubs have had people turn up with bad attitudes, its a personality thing not specific to fpv

size of model limits the height we all fly at, not a given number. (other than controlled airspace + ANO's)

somebody could go buy a jet, heli, spitfire etc and tarnish rest of us.

also there are people at clubs up and down the country showing fpv can be safe

the words can be safe , applies to us all
