I do like the Flair DVII but never been able to get my hands on one. I like the colour scheme of yours especially with the decent lozenge camo. My SFM ones fly lovely so am sure this will be even better, enjoy.

E-Flite Hurricane refresh; can’t beat an old fashioned tug (post war) to brighten up the flying field.

Hi Rocker, I run an APC 12x6 with my Hurricane, everything else is stock with a 3s 3200 and she flies really nicely.

FMS or Freewing, depends if you are after a specific type of aircraft. I have one of each; Freeewing Mustang repainted and an FMS Yak 130 repainted too. Both fly well, look good and were what I’d hoped they’d be.

For the more special aircraft I agree you have to build them yourself and that is where I have had the most satisfaction, especially the WW1 aircraft where there is a very limited foamie offering.

You are right, it isn’t a Yak 3 but it was a modified aircraft for use in a 1974 film (Only Old Men are Going To Battle - available on Amazon Prime) about a Yak squadron and took it’s looks from all the Yak 1,3 7 and 9 apparently when reading the Museum bumf.

Almost 2 years on and she still flies well but the covering was tired and starting to tear away flight by flight so I decided to give her a refresh. Nice and simple, Winter is coming!

Thread: Hanging planes on the wall
18/11/2018 18:26:43

I use a mix of methods but very similar to the above shown and described. I don't hang my IC nose down and have never had an issue. The P47 started well enough after almost 12 months in that corner the other week.

I hang my tissue covered models in doors to avoid the moisture in the garage.

Evening all, as per my other thread regards not enough space, I am now clearing out some bits. Aircraft today, accessories to follow tomorrow once I work out the P&P costs. Models will come on line one at a time from 1900 this evening to spread their auction ending next Sunday. There are some buy now prices but all are collection only.

Tried adding links but they don't work yet. Will try again later.

Well gentlemen I have been spurred on by your comments and have enjoyed reading all of the above.I have decided to see if I can sell 4 models for now, 2 will fly with just a receiver and battery, and the other 2 will fly with a motor added and battery. I'll be putting them on eBay later today or tomorrow along with a load of other bits I have decided to clear out.

Does anyone have a good condition cowling (black and white checks) or know where I can get one or if there is an alternative please?

I got this model second hand, had a crash on maiden due to a duff flight battery and after repair had an issue with the receiver too, so swapped it out. She now flies beautifully and I would like to pretty her up a bit. The cowl is fibre glass and chipped and cracked now which is a shame.

I may try and cover it, but with the nice curves at the front it may prove too difficult and more unsightly.

Thanks
