Thread: Guess the fault

Duff indicator? got one in an old Katana and switched on with nothing moving will be first green. Move the sticks and it goes down to red and everything in between, sticks centred back to green.

Very good, like the way the car rolls in the corners, very American muscle car.

In the IC engines page there is a "sticky" section about Laser engine identification.

Thread: Better builder than pilot
01/10/2019 18:23:41

How would it be to team up such builders with good flyers ? It is a shame that models built to fly do not get to do their stuff even if only once in a while. Had such a person in our club [ still a club member but has had to go into a care home ] and his aircraft would get a fly now and then by other club members. Buddy box would give them a go while reducing the risk.

The one that gets me is " Airplane " .   Aircraft,  Aeroplane, even just Plane are fine by me but not Airplane, an Americanism?

Mine had an Enya 40SS to start and it was fine, just the OS 46 with pipe came my way.

30/09/2019 16:37:12

If Enya 46 is a 4 stroke I think it may be to heavy.

29/09/2019 19:23:03

Go with the Enya 46, better than the OS LA any way. The carb can be had for under twenty pounds though.

Thread: 2019: Britain's new air disaster

The only proven "crime" in the Gatwick incident was the two day detainment of an innocent couple and their harassment by the gutter press.

The program was rubbish but the attack on the Saudi oil plant shows what armed drones can do. The most sophisticated anti missile systems cannot stop them all. Its a bit like disturbing a wasp's nest, you may swat some but the rest will get you.

My Limbo has a 4 cell Enloop pack. Been doing its thing for donkey's years. OS 46 with mini pipe has great throttle response and as full power is only used sparingly flight time is fine. Only mod is carbon undercarriage.

PS Still love flying it.smiley

Thread: What kit
21/09/2019 11:30:51

The vintage model co have a good selection of kits. Or how about Frog Jackdaw, from Ben Buckle.

Cheers John.

Thread: Flite Test Pietenpol won't run straight...
18/09/2019 19:06:25

Most aircraft of this type [ tail dragger with wheels ahead of centre of gravity ] Will tend to diverge when starting the take off roll. Open the throttle slowly and be ready to correct any swerve with rudder.

Also hold in up elevator until the aircraft starts rolling along the ground easing off as speed is gained [ You must not have much up in as it leaves the ground ] This does two things in that it prevents nose overs and holding the tail wheel/skid on the ground helps it steer straight until the air surfaces take control.

On some aircraft rudder is not very effective until the tail is raised and the take off roll is well under way.

Many aircraft of this type like to take off directly into wind and if you don't do it the plane will turn into wind itself.

Hoe this helps. John.

Thread: Defibrillator?
16/09/2019 14:43:33

Hi Simon, Have a look at St JOHNS ambulance site[ defibrillators], lots of good info about the right sort of defib for your needs. Or make direct contact they will be glad to help and give info on servicing the defib.

In my time as Coastguard rescue officer saw them save lives along with people knowing CPR, something else St Johns will help with if needed.

Cheers John.
