There just Chinese servos with a sticker on them, may be good may be bad, suppose it depends on Chinese quality control.

Spektrum, why do people still bother with it, obviously they don't check there new products properly, preferring to let the customer do it. Just take a look on the Internet it's full of spektrum horror stories.

I always launch pushers by holding the wing tip of the right wing with my right hand and the transmitter in my left. I hold the plane out in front of me open the throttle and toss it with my right hand, never lost any body parts and never had a failed launch. Simples

Thread: Personal Injuries.

Lots of no win no fee solicitors out there, in fact most solicitors that do personal injury offer this. Most take out an insurance policy to cover them if they should loss, but won't take it on unless there's a strong chance of a win.

If you win they take there fee and costs from your award up to a max of 25% if they loss providing you haven't made a fraudulent claim and have acted on there advise you pay nothing, you can instruct them out of your own pocket but final cost will be similar but if you loss it's your bill.

Just Google no win no fee solicitor Doncaster

Just been looking at ys engine bearing and the only site I can find that stock ys parts and show pictures is Amain hobbies and the pictures certainly aren't angular bearings

Thread: UK resin supplier

I've used easy composites but only in small amount so never been hit with extra charges.

How do you recycle epoxy to sell in poundland or anywhere else for that matter

Thread: Angular Contact bearings
19/05/2020 19:07:50

Not sure why you would think angular contact bearings would be better for a rear bearing as it's the front bearing that takes the axial load

At first glance it seems as though it's 300g heavier for 0.7hp increase according to the comparison on macgregors website although I'm sure there are other factors to think about.

240g the diffrence from 35

It's a twin so heavier than a single but not sure why you think more cylinders equates to less power per cc, roughly same power to weight ratio as a dle 35 but so much sweeter.

Thanks, in my head I was estimating that a dle 40 would be ok not a million miles out from the 35.

If your club has noise limits the dle 40 is very noisy, we have no limits but I have put perper pots in the exhaust and propped it up and it still howls, but it's a sweet engine and pulls the acro wot xl round the sky well, I'm sure it climbs vertically nearly as fast as it dives.
