Thread: Phoenix versus Realflight
10/08/2016 21:38:00

I am looking for guidance please. I am a B cert flyer for fixed wing and would like to get my skills and stick time up to what it was 15 years ago after a long break. I now want to fly helis as well. Can anyone advise which SIM is best. The Realflight 7.5 best package about £130 with tranny has slt and this means you can WiFi to a large Tele screen, my Futaba8J does not have slt so would not work with the £80 no tyranny option, on the large screen.On the other hand the Pheonix at £99 comes with no tyranny but I do have a DX6i, this system seems to be Spectrum based. Please advise, I could just use my 17 inch laptop screen but think the extra money for the best Realflight is worth it if the actual simulator is as good as the best Pheonix

Finally flying with 2200mm 3 cell lipo, all the power you need and 3.8v per cell left after 8 minute flight. Please excuse the inflight thumbs up image, she is there in the distance20160712_062938.jpg

Thread: Aircraft 108 inch span

My model has a central bungee, at the end of the day all of this adds to the experience, these latest images are superb, thank you

Yes this is the model which I bought this week, but the seller can't remember a cannot find the plan or cowl mould but has them somewhere. Thanks for everybody's help. Best regards Stuart

The plot thickens, I am going to put some servos and receiver in over the coming days and hope to start the engine. A.more ideas welcome. Best regards Stuart

Thank you, I believe this is a Taylorcraft built from a plan but don,t know which and as you probably know there is a natural link between Taylorcraft, Piper and Auster. I really wanted to identify the plan and more importantly the engine. Thanks once again

09/07/2016 13:15:51

Here is a shot of the tail wing span 108inches 1/4 scale, any ideas who drew the plan please.

Here is a side viewengine side view

I hope someone will be able to identify the engine, I was told 28cc but wouldn't be sure about that?

08/07/2016 20:52:51

I will have a go tomorrow and try to identify the engine and take some images. If I don't come back on by Tuesday it's because I have to have some eye surgery, so out for at least a week.

I have just purchased a 108 inch span Taylocraft, it has a petrol engine believed by the seller (who never flew this or did much other than decide the tubular aileron mech wasn't much use). The model has a mould made 2 part cowl. That's all I have now and hope someone may recognise the an maker or shed any light. I am lead to believe the petrol engine is 28 cc. Any ideas on anything please post. Best regards Stuart Marsden

Thread: Electric brushless setup for a Ben Buckle Long Cabin
01/07/2016 21:34:38

Sorry McMaster should read Mercury Matador.

01/07/2016 21:33:32

Many thanks, I have now linked all of this up, I am yet to test fly but there is definitely enough on 3 cells Lipo. McMaster project has also flown exceptionally well with new brushless setup, after 15 minute flights there is still 4 volts left in each cell. Thanks to all of you, I will post again once the weather settles and the Long Cabin gets into the air once again.

Thread: Super Sixty electric conversion, aileron wing
10/06/2016 21:57:02

Sorry Ballerina should read ailerons

10/06/2016 21:55:31

I started my RC flying life with a Super Sixty, it had an Enya35, but had aileron wing. Being young and brash, I soon moved on once I damaged it, I dumped it, I should have repaired it and kept it. I have returned after a 10 year break and at 63, I am relieved to find d that I can still fly well enough to teach others again . I long to have a Super Sixty with ballerina again and feel electric conversion could be a good way to go. Experiences please and advice on how, if they have done so, flight setups. Best regards Stuart Marsden

Many thanks Pat, I am in tomorrow, so will file, print off and get the Long Cabin back in the air. Cheers Stuart

05/06/2016 22:20:57

Thanks, as I have several 3cell packs at 2200, I will try this first before I take this any further. Once you get these old buses in the air, they don't need much power. Thanks once again, I will start hooking it all up. Best regards Stuart

05/06/2016 20:01:30

Many thanks for that, I have now emailed Patmac. Forum is very useful and appears to be dominated by good soles who are willing to share. Best regards Stuart

05/06/2016 15:24:57

Hi Pat, yes that's it, thank you for your trouble. I will take note of your comments, I have a small device which allows me to measure my cells before and after flights, so I will take this route for now. Cheers Stuart
