Look at Ron's SBach silencer solution when a quiet motor is imperative

You can align your own across the firewall


Thread: Glue for an EPP model (NOT cyano)
28/03/2020 19:45:18

POR Martin is the ideal glue for EPP as stated above

Follow the tube instructions and the bond is stronger than the EPP

Thanks John, that's the second time I've been called a 'loon' today, it's a great word, sort of insulting but at the same time complimentary, I'll take the latter! wink

My dad used to call me a "loon" with my madcap ideas

But it is On the more endearing side of insults. Consider the term as not quite potty, just being a loon is not so bad

I bet they called Archimedes a loon

They found that printing could be 3 times heavier than Depron but very strong

A large wing would carry the extra weight no problem

Did you read the thread all the way through, they were going at it with each other and were told several times to stop it, would not be allowed on here thats for sure,

Thanks for the ideas, sounds like its a bin job,

With all our skills, nothing goes in the bin. If you would like to add volume to the Pitts silencer, then you will need to

Aluminium weld, yourself or use a car ally wheel repair man.

You could do it

28/03/2020 08:09:24

You know that you need internal Volume SR 71, and the above silencer will not cut it

The gas needs somewhere to expand, so a canister is needed as above advice.

they can cost as much as your motor

Thread: Medite MDF
27/03/2020 09:57:06

My take on it Basil, when Medite came out

Was it was available in much thinner sheets

This wasn't developed for the model market, but just a spin off; giving us another thin material choice.

Ply, is our go to strong sheet, and is expensive

Medite belongs is places where there is no need to bolt or screw on landing gear or motors

But would suit non stress bulkheads and servo mounts

Realy, this stuff is just thinner waterproof MDF

Have a look at these Dee

Thread: Wanted parts for Enya 90 and 60 FS engines
27/03/2020 09:29:11

Probably 3 times now, where it says Buy it now £x00, Or Best Offer

Have just offered £50 and got the motor.

My theory is you just keep offering on these listings and you will win one of two

Thread: 6 Turning 4 Burning

Am working with all Steel landing gear at the moment

Is not a scale model, so I could cheat buying exact wire, tube and spring sizes that fit

Only for an 8lb model, but needs to be steel on my club strip

Thank you BinB, that looks too good to be true!

If I am right, the part will bind with my 5 year old Spektrum DX6, have stability control, all integrated in a tiny package, and at that price it is a gem!

I'll ask them a few questions.

Thank you for your help.


Look up DSMX by Orange and Lemon too Graham, just to appreciate that other makes can be driven by the DX6

I think your right Nigel, by September I expect

Thread: Throttle issue
24/03/2020 17:13:48

The ESC senses Throttle High or some Throttle on and is protecting you.

With the prop off, try trimming down

If this does not stop the beeping, then reverse the throttle and trim down again

Stay safe Tiger

Thread: Covid 19
24/03/2020 09:14:11

You are right Tim, in six months time we are back to square one.

My belief is that for vulnerable people to stay safe will be 12 months at least of distance isolation.

The young and old who are healthy and contract the disease will Recover.

The truely vulnerable need to isolate a much longer time in my view

The position Tiger

Is that you are travelling unnecessarily to complete a

Non Essential Task

AR410 improved and rock solid contact

Thread: Wing and C of G
23/03/2020 18:28:12

Chris, Just my twopennerth based on flying and rotating at take off.

For a Trike U/C, the C of G goes just in front of the main year to rotate and lift off

Your proposal to go further forward, increases the leverage to lift it's nose and rotate

So bear this in mind

Have a look at BRC Hobbies for the Tetra, flys on 6A ESC, 300mah 2S, indoor and outdoor
