Thread: Liquid weld

Posted by Bob Cotsford on 15/02/2018 15:59:17:

I was tempted after seeing the article, but £21 a bottle? Liquid Weld or Liquid Gold?

John - this stuff is reported to stick just about anything, not just plastics!

Buy it at the shows it's much cheaper.

I bought the 3 pack (£34) for either £10 or £15 can't remember, but certainly no more.

I bought some at Weston Park, good stuff.

Thread: Aldi scroll saw
28/12/2017 15:42:23


I've just got back from shopping and picked up one of these for £28 (reduced from £69.99).

I wasn't looking for one, but at that price I couldn't resist!

Suggest you phone your local Aldi first as the one I bought was the last at their Castle Bromwich store.

Happy New Year smiley

Can you still change the Esc programming ok ?

Don't see why not, though I haven't had to because I programmed the esc before wiring in the UBEC.

20/12/2017 16:24:40

Yes, that's the method I use.

Here's a youtube example: **LINK**

Server power supply with conversion instructions (credit to MattyB for this link):-


A chap also sells them already converted and advertises regularly in the BMFA Classifieds.

Thread: Parallel Charging
05/12/2017 16:20:02

+ 1 for Zippy compacts.

I've got about a dozen of varying capacities bought over the last two years and haven't had any problems with them.

OTOH I've had two Overlanders puff up in the same period!

BTW I always parallel charge them.

One of my brothers built this one over about five years, nice flyer smiley


Thread: Why We board Planes From The left Hand Side.
01/12/2017 19:21:55
Posted by Peter Jenkins on 01/12/2017 18:45:03:

My understanding of the Captain sitting on the LH side is that the rules of the air require you to "drive on the right" and as such the Captain sits where he gets the best view of any traffic to which he needs to give way. I have no idea why in helicopters the convention is different but it may be to do with the ease of evacuation with the direction of early rotor blades - but that's pure supposition. Helicopters still have to obey the rules of the air and give way to the aircraft on their left so how does the Captain cope when flying on his own?

Sorry Peter it's the opposite.........'On the right is in the right'.

When converging aircraft, of the same class, are closing the aircraft on the left must give way to the aircraft on it's right.

Btw, the explanation in the linked article that the convention for passenger acces on the left/port side is based on the pilot overviewing the wing nearest to the terminal building begs the question why the pilot is sitting in the LH seat in the first place..........

Or the RH seat in a chopper smiley

How many hinges did you put on the aillerons ?

Three on each aileron and flap.

03/10/2017 13:42:59

I used small Kavan hinges and Blenderm tape to seal the gaps yes

Thread: G-RX8 reciver
30/09/2017 14:20:17

I'm using an X8R in my P2000 and was going to add a vario.............but now I'll wait.

You'll love the glider, I've added the flap servos and programmed in crow and camber yes

30/09/2017 13:01:58

I've been looking at using one of these too; lots of info on this forum:-


I'm waiting until all of the mentioned issues are resolved!

Thread: Home made adjustable CofG frame/cradle thingy
18/09/2017 14:13:30
Posted by Stevo on 16/09/2017 20:24:05:

I know it's not home made, but got one of these years ago. You can set the CoG measurement on the top then balance the model.

Just a hint for your DIY balancers!

Edited By Stevo on 16/09/2017 20:24:32

I use the HK one which works the same as Stevo's but cost less than a tenner thumbs up

Thread: S6R config app issue
10/09/2017 14:59:14

I know that I said I wouldn't waste any more time on this issue but....................

It's too windy (for me) to go flying and the test match finished early so I was bored.

I was still intrigued as to why this app wasn't appearing properly on my PC and my laptop so, using Teamviewer, I compared my screen to my son's to see if there was an obvious difference.

For many years I've preferred to have the Taskbar on the top of the screen not on the bottom which is conventional.

Lo and behold, with the Taskbar on the bottom, the app appears properly with the Previous/Calibration/Next buttons!
