|Thread: Precedent Stampe 1/4 Scale|
Thanks for all the tips - I'll get it weighed when I get a minute and have a proper think about engine options...
I'd seen this replacement cowl at Slec www.slecuk.com/SLEC-kits/14-scale-sv4b-stampe-grp-cowl
Thanks Cymaz / Bert.
Definitely looks like mine is the Precedent kit as it's got one piece wings top and bottom and a single open cockpit.
The cowl needs replacing but I think they are still available.
Hope it's ok to jump on here to ask a couple of Stampe questions...
I've picked up an old 1/4 Stampe to refurbish - it's originally been done in the Rothman's scheme but it's tired and in need of recovering etc. I'd assumed it was a Precedent Stampe but then someone mentioned there is a Svenson Stampe too - (hope I've got that right)
I need to try and get some info - but first need to check which model it is; are there any obvious differences between the 2 kits?
Also - I'm looking at a 30cc 4 stroke petrol for this - Saito FG30 perhaps; does that sound in the right ballpark?

|Thread: 30cc four stroke petrol engines - noise level?|
A good friend of mine at the club who is a very able engineer has demonstrated that it's possible to reduce the noise level and 'bark' from the DLE style 2 stroke petrols using cheap and cheerful additional silencers downstream of the original silencer - yes it does rob a bit of power but that's an acceptable compromise for some of us.
Given that in this case it's for a warbird I did want the 4 stroke sound and also didn't want to see additional silencers below the fuselage - hence my hope that a 30cc 4 stroke running a large or multi bladed prop could be quieter out of the box.
I’m looking to buy either a Saito FG 30 or an OS GF 30 to power an old CMPro FW-190 that I’ve recently bought.
Our club has to adhere to an 82db noise level and before buying the engine I’m looking for some comfort that others have had these engines operating at that level.
Any data on measured noise levels and prop size etc would be much appreciated.

|Thread: Gear channel not available when dual ailerons plus flaps selected|
Yes - plenty of channels on the rx thanks.
You're right - if I just consider the channels in numeric order then it really doesn't make any difference to what goes where and I've now set up the model with gear on Aux2. There's just something irritating about the fact that there is a slot on the rx marked 'gear' that I can't plug the retracts into...
But.... Life is too short and it works by another means so nothing lost!
Hope to see you down at the field soon !
thanks Glenn, that's what I'm seeking to achieve too. Out of interest, what version of Airware are you running on your DX9?
thanks for the responses.
I think this must be a bug - generally any channel can be reassigned but it seems strange that Gear is missing in action in these scenarios.
As you say the workaround will be to use one of the Aux channels and leave flaps on what should be Gear!
I've been trying to setup a new model and have run into a programming issue and want to see if anyone else has seen this:
Transmitter is a DX9 and I have seen this issue on Airware 1.11 and 1.20
I created a new model on the tx with model type as fixed wing and wing type as dual aileron plus single flap. The gear channel is then unavailable. When I go into 'channel assign' - channel 5 Gear is set to flap and there is no way to change this (or any other channel) to gear.
If I change the wing type to single aileron and single flap, then the gear channel is available as normal.
Has anyone else seen this and am I doing something wrong?
