|Thread: 1/3 scale Bristol Scout|
Great looking model but registration letters normally go under the left wing........
This however may not have applied in the good old days, still think they are a bit OTT though.
Hi Don, I to have the "Sticky" plan, it was from the Jan 2018 Rcme
|Thread: Corsair TopFlite Gold Edition kit build blog|
|Thread: Gatwick drone incident|
I would like to know how they saw it in the dark, they're not easy to see in daylight.
I also think there is something else going on here...........
|Thread: Wireless Trainer Setup|
Well that's interesting, I set up my model on my Dx6i with whatever % throws/travel It needs. Then the Dx6E is set up to the same throws/travel......
At my club they are using DX6E as the primary with my DX6i as the student wirelessly connected.
I'm not sure if this works as it should, but does depend on how they are set up regarding throws etc.
|Thread: How to fill a TE / aileron gap ?|
Hi again, and thanks for the replies,
I've now measured the gap and it is 3mm, which I appreciate won't affect handling too much, But as I said it just looks wrong....
My ambition is to build scale models to a reasonable level of accuracy so I'm looking for advice on how to fix things to an agreeable standard that looks right and yes I know now I should have recessed the hinges but Ho Hum...
Anyway back to this model, Ken ( the geordie ) what sticky tape would you use ? and by the way did you used to use "The Model Shop" in Blenheim st........
Bob C. does film shrinkage not cause binding etc. ?
Can anyone recommend a way of filling / covering a too large gap between the trailing edge of a wing and the aileron ?
I realise now that I should have recessed the hinge but I didn't and the gap just looks wrong.
This is on a 4ch trainer, 60" wingspan.
|Thread: Spektrum transmitter for a beginner|
My models use Spektrum rx's and I use 4.8v batteries, never had a problem.
They will work down to 3.5v but I wouldn't send one airborne with a voltage less than 4.0v
|Thread: Snap Dragon|
I've just ordered the motor, esc., propeller and battery for this build.
This will be a first for me as I've only ever built I.C. before but liked the look of this and the video is great
It's nice and compact to just put in the car and my grand kids will love it
|Thread: Used SC46 Glowplugs|
As you mean camshaft it must be a 4 stroke, so have you checked valves and valve clearances ?
|Thread: they are still at it.(PayPal).|
I've just had a text from HSBC saying my account has been suspended and to reactivate it follow their link..........
Funny that, as I have never ever had an HSBC account
|Thread: How do I choose my servos?|
Agree with Nigel R, I use 311's for rudder/elevator and 225's for ailerons, but I do use Turnigy mini's for the throttle and rubber mount them on compressed fuel tube.
|Thread: First Balsa Build - Glue Choices|
Another vote for Titebond Aliphatic
|Thread: Silicone Wire Size relative to Volts / Amps / Watts ?|
Only at radio frequencies when the "Skin effect" comes into play
|Thread: ASP settings query|
Ok thanks, I'll have a look online. I thought a tacho might be useful to get the idle speed right.
Slight thread drift but can I ask how you guys measure the engines rpm ? Are you using a Tacho of some kind if so what is recommended ??
|Thread: Diesel fuel - local|
I bought a litre of D1000 from RCworld online, it was around £15.00 + delivery

|Thread: Spinner choice ?|
Getting a bit technical now............
Thanks for the replies, I wasn't sure about drilling the backplate of a spinner, but if that is standard practice that's what I'll do if needed.
Just about to order a 2.5" spinner from Slec
