Thread: FMS T28 Trojan v4.
19/07/2019 07:15:11

Colin, I had the same trouble with an Edf Jet from FMS recently. The nose leg was cycling as I flew around, luckily it decided to stay down long enough to land. I wondered if plugging the nose leg retract directly into the RX might help and it did, problem solved.

So, if you have a spare receiver channel try doing that. I got the impression that the three-way y lead into which the retracts connect was the problem and the nose leg wasn’t getting the power it needed prompting it to behave erratically,

Yep, that’s pretty conclusive. Thanks Martin, I’m looking forward to a good read.

Hi chaps. A bit different this one but I've picked up a Tamiya kit at a charity shop and noticed it has an inscription on the box.

It seems to be signed by Ulrich somebody but I'm struggling with the surname, any thoughts? Is this a significant someone?

Even though I'm a freelancer these days I still get the odd RCM&E email. Just had one from China wondering whether we'd like to review some new odourless socks......

I think five pages should cover it laugh

Me too, although not as seriously as yourself.

I do wonder whether my next bike will be an e-bike, those I've spoken to who have one think they're wonderful but I just can't bring myself to buy one yet.

Thanks Steve. Interesting. To his credit Tim Loughton seems to have grasped the situation very well.

A deliberate bit of trolling Doc. It was about nothing in particular and just an attempt to antagonise and agitate forum members. It exists no more.

Morning all.

I've just removed a couple of sellers from the site along with their adverts. One was clearly spam, the other was an R/C item but with text pasted from a retailer with the seller having just joined the community just a day ago. (they're still showing in the pod on the lower right side of the home page as this only updates every few hours). 

Just a reminder to use care when replying to sellers, check their profile, check their forum activity and, if in doubt, contact a moderator.

Just re-subscribed for a year's printed& digital subscriptions: when trying to view the digital version on line I get an error message: "bad referrer'? Anyone know how to overcome this?

Jon, how did you re-subscribe, through this site or direct via pocketmags?

And we'll stop it there I think.
