Five degrees does seem a lot but may well be right for a depron model ment to fly slowly without sticking it's nose up in the air.

I have an earlier all metal McCoy 046. The clever bit I recon was the all enclosed auto spring starter.

No need to hook a spring the prop on the prop, just wind the prop back a turn and a half and let it go.

Colin,you could adjust both aileron's up a bit to give the wing some washout. Often helps.

Thread: E-flite P-39 Airacobra

The P39 was found wanting in the western europe and pacific theater's because of the lack of a two speed turbo charger or turbo supercharger which limited altitude performance.

However it was a popular mount on the eastern front where most air fighting took place below 12000 ft in support of ground forces . The P39 was mainly used in air to air combat where its heavy firepower was put to good effect against all German types including early bf 109's.

Several soviet air ace's flew the P39.

I do the same as cymaz for engine bay's, coat with epoxy using BSI epoxy [ bob smith industry ] 5 minute / medium set or slow set available. I like it because of the low smell compaired to other epoxy's.

If it were mine I would run without the spinner and maybe lean on the prop nut a bit more.

Have wonderd is the click one hears when the prop comes loose just the sound the nut makes as it suddenly lets go of the shaft?

Thread: Banded on undercarriage

As you say not the nicest looking method but easy to put back on if the UC is removed in an arrival. Though the UC departing the aircraft may damage the tail. You need enough bands to keep it firm or suffer odd steering on takeoff.

Sorry, forgot OS made the last ones.

At £13 50 I would give it a go. I think the only changes were the colour and the carb.

If you don't give something a go you wil not know.

I once filled a damaged keyway on a Land Rover crank shaft with JB weld [ the owner was happy to try this last ditch fix ] It went on for years.

Hi David, Yes I recon one's head acts as an extension to the signal. When I was in the Coastguard we had a Mitsibushi L200 rescue vehicle. One day on the while walking the coast path to a minor incident a fellow coastguard arrived at the truck and needed to get into the locked vehicle for his safety gear.

We were at least a quarter of a mile up the coast path but could still see the truck. I did not fancy going back so I tried it and open it did and lock again after!smiley Cheers John.
