Thread: Testing clone of the TowerPro MG996R Servo
27/10/2016 11:33:14

I use those servos quite a lot I think they may be made by different companys if you notice some are TOWER PRO some are TOWARD PRO note the different spelling I have a lot of these servos all have two ball races in them I did buy 4 from some were in Birmingham that were advertised as having two ball races having opening them they were found to have plastic bushes just like you say so I sent them back I also notice that the servo you've pulled to pieces says PROSTER on it there are that many clones out there so your servo could be a clone of a real tower pro servo or a clone of a clone???????

I have masses of solarfilm from the 70s and 80s a good friend of mine used to have a model shop and was a friend of I think mr solarfilm hence the large amount of film I have its manly seconds were the colour was a bit off or there was a fault in it and it was skipped and it came out of the skip , I have just covered a glider with some of it from the early eighties film that is I was give some of hobbykings film and found it very good so have stuck to that I find using film quicker than paint ect ect and easy to apply

09/05/2016 13:00:59

the model is mine built from a plan, the pump is built into the backplate just in and out it might be dry as the motor has not been run for a long time or it could be goosed, the fuzz is light ply and balsa with foam wings and tail, its covered in film from hobbyking and most cut with a scalpel the words TORNADO and UKCAA were cut from film on a club members wifes machine? the electric retracts are from hobbyking also, weight about 7-8 pounds quess

I agree with Ian holme ,above ?in the 80s and 90s I used to fly at Elvington if memory serves me it was up for sale I had many words with Chris Bromley at the time about buying it for the BMFA SMAE his words to me were ITS NOT BIG ENOUGH TO HOLD THE NATS ?????? you could land the space shuttle on elvington and heres chris telling me its not big enough, he said what he ment to say was its not WIDE ENOUGH and the free flight boys would be going out of the airfield ??? I have been to the natsat barkston for a number of years and quess what the free flight boys go out of the air field and so do the chuck/n/duck as well I think its to late to do anything about the nats proberbly the end of an era

11/03/2016 09:53:37

what is wrong with you honky tonks this is the third time I have mentioned this WHAT ABOUT WOODVALE er????? near the m6 motorway? and m27?? not much difference on size to Barkston, probably would fill all the needs to hold the nats and has been used in the past for model aircraft shows, is it because its TO FAR NORTH is that the problem for goodness sake WAKE UP
