|Thread: Chorus Gull|
Thank you all for your suggestions; much appreciated.
I have at last started covering my Chorus Gull and I want to copy the red with gold trim as here. I will be using Solarspan for the red but have not yet sourced anything for the gold trim. Any suggestions as to what I could use? Will all the different types of covering stick to Solarspan? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
|Thread: Sourcing PETG Sheet|
Thank you to all those that took the time and trouble to provide helpful responses, much appreciated.
Thanks for your helpful response Mark. The canopy itself will be about 300mm x 300mm then I need to allow for overlap and fitting into the frame, so I need fairly large sheets. I have been struggling to find the size I need and prices were higher than I expected. I have looked on ebay and while there seems to be plenty on there, not found anything suitable yet.

Well that could be the response to virtually every post with a question. Fortunately there are more helpful people here who appreciate you have probably already done that, but that someone else may have managed to 'dig up' something you did not find.
Can anyone advise on a good source for PETG sheet .020" (0.5mm) thickness as I am going to attempt vacuum forming a canopy for my Chorus Gull.
I have built a scaled up version (6ft span) from the Brian Peckham plan and so the 'standard' size canopy is too small.
|Thread: Hangar One|
Thank you all for your comments; appreciated as always.
Does anyone have any experience with Hangar One kits? I am particularly interested in the Curare 64.
|Thread: Youtube, Vimeo and Photobucket videos|
Can someone please advise how I post an MP4 video from my PC. Originally taken with my mobile phone. Note this is not a youtube video but one taken with my mobile, now residing on my PC.
|Thread: Saito FA40 Performance Increase|
Hi Martin, its a Saito FA40a
Is there anyone out there providing engine tuning? I would like an increase in performance from my Saito FA40 over and above just setting it up correctly. I am aware engine tuning comes at a cost in terms of engine wear etc, but would like to explore this option if it is available.
|Thread: SC36 dims|
Thank you, much appreciated.
Great idea if I actually had a motor to measure.
