|Thread: Wots Wot|
Many thanks I had thought they would need to be connected.
I have a Wots Wot kit not ARTF and am struggling to see from the instructions how the interplane struts attach to each wing. I have a slotted ply plate and the ply interplane struts but no mention of how they attach.
Wondered if anyone has any info on this
|Thread: Fuel tank setup|
Thanks for all the advice I was just wondering if anybody had a different clunk setup, the valve system is just a one way valve & I have been using them for 35 years...works perfectly
Many thanks I will do some checking the valve is to keep the system pressurised and stop unspent fuel coming out of the exhaust, works a treat.
How do people set up their fuel tank and engine so you don't loose power in outside loops or whenever the plane is in a vertical dive?
Currently my OS55 has a standard fuel setup with pressure from the exhaust with a one way valve, but when I'm at the bottom of the loop the engine is searching for fuel.
|Thread: Transmitter battery replacement|
Can I change my Futaba 7c transmitter battery without loosing all the data when I unplug the old one?
|Thread: Wolfgang Matt Joker|
That's Brilliant Bob many thanks
It doesn't happen to mention where the thrust line is on the Firewall does it? the one I have has no markings. or engine mount as yet.
Thanks once again
I found an old post giving the CofG as 161mm from the leading edge which looks about right as a starting point. I've just set the whole fuselage level on the bench and with an incidence meter on the horizontal stabiliser levelled to zero the Firewall is pointing upwards....which I cant believe is correct.
It's not going well......
Thanks for all the advice
I have just acquired a 60 size Joker in need of renovation. Does anybody have a PDF plan of this plane? or could advise as to the CofG right thrust & down thrust?
|Thread: DSM Aerostar69|
I have a fully built & ready to go for next season DSM Aerostar 69 would this qualify as an eligible plane to enter competitions?
It's 25 years since I last flew an F3A competition and have no intention of spending the best part of 7k to fly with the big boys.
Also have an Atlas that I'm building from scratch which may be ready in the spring.
|Thread: foam wings|
Could anybody let me know what density foam is best for wings, I'm going to have a go at making some. something I last did 35 years ago...
|Thread: Atlas Plans|
Does anybody know where I could get a set of digital plans for the Atlas? I downloaded a PDF from outerzone but when you print them out they are not very accurate.
|Thread: Tuned pipes|
Thanks for all the help I have family in the USA who are going to send me a Navarossi for $39 even though its made in Italy
I'll probably crash the plane first time out now!
The JE pipes would be ideal sadly I spoke to them and the people that manufacture them are no longer producing at the moment.
Hi Brian I messaged you but not totally sure how that works on this site, is the pipe a #900?
I spoke to Weston their pipes aren't baffled which as we have a 82db limit wouldn't work. I will look at the states.
Does anybody know where I can get a tuned pipe in the UK, I have tried just engines but they no longer have any stock. I have been told a Hatori 700 would work but can't find a supplier. Weston uk have some but they are un-baffled which wouldn't work at my club.
The original plane had an OS red tuned pipe & a Hanno special, the restored version has an OS75AX.
|Thread: Dave smith Aerostar 69 instructions|
Does anybody have a copy of the instructions for the Dave smith Aerostar 69 or could let me know what size the Ailerons should be cut?
Trying to resurrect one here....
