The BMFA can't win ,if the stop producing the mag people would moan about not having a mag .I think for £38 a year we get a good deal .Try joining a golf club .that £38 might just buy one round of drinks

Thread: which is cheaper,IC or ELECTRIC?
27/11/2018 19:51:50

I have always preferred IC but I have just order 4 gallons of glow fuel @ £26 a gallon .Last time I order the same fuel it was £ 19 a gallon ( why has it gone up so much ) so I am thinking maybe Electric might be the cheaper option .But like Jon I find electric a bit boring . The price of glow fuel has nether bother me ,it just something you have to put up with  but now it has got me thinking .I have 2 option .Option 1 just pay the price and shut up .Option 2 Convert to petrol .I suppose I could go over to the dark side but it will always be ic for me what ever the cost ,to a point !!!!!!!!!!

I decided to try the graphene lipo battery .I have been using it now for about 6 months .I have found no difference in flight times ,no difference in performance ,in fact I have found no difference between graphene and a normal lipo .I tell a lie there is one big difference the graphene battery was a lot difference in price ,it cost a lot more then the normal lipo !!!!!! .I think it is a con .I have stop buying them I will stick with the lower priced normal Lipo !!!!!!!!!!!!!.Can someone tell why you pay a lot more for a graphene lipo when the the normal lipo are just has good ( the graphene battery and the normal lipo I compare it with where both the same make of lipo )

Thread: Servo for AcroWot XL
24/11/2018 19:12:27

I have a Acro Wot Xl and intend to put a DLE 30 cc petrol engine in it .I was hoping to put Futaba 3010 servos in it but they seem hard to come by at the moment (on back order at Ripmax till after Christmas ) I have been told that the Savox sc 352 servo should be OK but the person was not sure if they would be OK in a big model like an Acro Wot XL .They are a bit cheaper then the Futaba 3010 but anyone know if they would OK to put in an Acro Wot XL and do the job ?

Thread: Black Horse Spitfire 61

Thread: Wot has happened to all the Wots Wot ARTF ????
18/11/2018 21:10:38

OK great ,thanks

18/11/2018 21:08:18

Someone just told me they will be back in stock in March 2019 question.Why so long

18/11/2018 21:05:06

Can not find a Ripmax Wots Wot ARTF any where .Are they still in production ???

Thread: Black Horse Spitfire 61
17/11/2018 18:48:23

Well just had an e mail from one of my on line model shop and they say the next delivery from Black Horse is not until March and they seem to think that it has been discontinued .I will give Ripmax an e mail they will know what is happening

17/11/2018 16:58:20

Doh!!!!!!!!!!!! back to the drawing board ,Black Horse Spitfire 61 DISCONTINUED crying Every time I like a model I find it discontinued .Try again ,now I know Hanger 9 have just brought out some new models ,so they should not be discontinued .They do a new Carbon Cub for a 15cc petrol engine ,Now they Laser 80 should fly that yes I hope .Hanger 9 also do a 80" Piper cub but I am sure the Laser 80 will be bit over the top for that .I never thought I would have so much trouble finding a model for my Laser 80 !!!

17/11/2018 16:02:47

OK Thanks for that info .Black Horse Spitfire it is Then .I will order one on Monday

17/11/2018 12:16:14

Thanks Jon ,The other model I like is the Seagull P 47 Razorback (Snafu) but I did not think the Laser 80 would be enough for the P 47 but looking at the spec for the Black Horse Spitfire ,the P47 looks very similar so would I get away with a Laser 80 in the Seagull P 47 ? I would prefer the Seagull P47 .Just thought I would need a Laser 100 in the P 47?

Thread: Advice please on Wots Wot engine
14/11/2018 12:00:25

It is easy question to answer ,It simple in my opinion the Laser 80 is perfect for the Wots Wotsyes .That is what I have in my Wots Wots and it has more than enough power and will also fly it slow .Laser 80 you will not regret it

Thread: What is going on with Royal Mail ??????????
12/11/2018 22:47:23

Had 2 different parcel go missing in one week this week by Royal Mail .One is some where in Cambridge and I live in Lincolnshire and the other parcel ,well your guess is has good has mine It has come to the point now that when I ordered some epoxy glue to day from a modeling shop I told them not to send it via Royal Mail !!! The ironic thing was when I rang the Royal Mail Customer Service they told me that this often happenings and not to worry .It seems Royal Mail do not seem bother about this angry
