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.

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
02/12/2018 18:38:37

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......

02/12/2018 17:52:26

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 ?
02/12/2018 17:45:54

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 nerd 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. ?

Regards, Davey

Hi All,

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.

Tia, Davey

Thread: Spektrum transmitter for a beginner
07/11/2018 11:03:26

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
31/10/2018 20:04:17

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 thumbs up

It's nice and compact to just put in the car and my grand kids will love it nerd

Thread: Used SC46 Glowplugs
29/10/2018 08:39:28

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 devil

Thread: How do I choose my servos?
08/10/2018 14:49:11

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. nerd

Another vote for Titebond Aliphatic thumbs up

Thread: Silicone Wire Size relative to Volts / Amps / Watts ?

Thread: ASP settings query
27/08/2018 19:42:37

Ok thanks, I'll have a look online. I thought a tacho might be useful to get the idle speed right.

27/08/2018 10:47:03

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

Thread: Spinner choice ?
26/07/2018 18:29:08

Getting a bit technical now............dont know

26/07/2018 12:31:18

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 nerd
