Thread: Purbeck Sailplanes Graffiti fuselage construction?
15/09/2019 21:34:21

Definitely polyester, every one I saw including mine cracked in the same place. They weren't 30 years old though....

Interesting stuff, but what a pity you've placed in someone's personal build blog for an Italian Sabre.

Perhaps an email direct to the magazine editor might have been more relevant...

I agree, what an utterly pointless post and way to ruin someone's blog.

" I am unable to let this matter pass without comment" should have, it's petty.

Thread: Best Dremel Clone

Buy cheap, buy twice.

Get a Dremel, you've probably spent more on cheap copies, false economy.

All of them.

Thread: Sukhoi SU-26
15/07/2019 21:07:53

I've flown many 26's, smaller, same size and bigger and I love them. The radial cowl does increase drag but what's nice is that on the down lines it doesn't build speed as quickly so you can fly all manoeuvres at a reasonably constant speed. Don't expect it to be as fast as an Edge / Extra etc. The same characteristic means you need to keep some power on for the final portion of the approach otherwise the rate of speed decline can accelerate and catch you out.

I still have one of these in a box so interested to hear how you get on.

Buddy box, does thou not trust thy fellow modellers? laugh

Martin, looks a nice model, could be interested but a couple of questions, will the design allow it to be built without flaps as my experience has show they add weight more than benefit on small models and secondly, could I modify it for top drive on the ailerons as I'd worry the linkages would be damaged on the underside of a low wing slope model?

Will there be a laser cut short kit as per previous mass builds, release date etc?

Thread: Another thread closed
21/05/2019 12:22:27

From an outsider looking in it does seem that it is over moderated compared to other forums I have used, almost excessively so. I assume there is a reason though?

Salad dressing?

Thread: Real Model Pilots

Are they still in business or is service always slow? Order placed 6 weeks ago and no update since. And before you say contact them, I have. No reply.

Thread: Canopy/Hatch magnets
22/02/2019 13:19:15

I use magnets quite a lot and now buy them from Amazon, plenty of choice.

Thread: Redshift F3F
21/02/2019 21:24:47

Point of order Peter, the faults were not minor, they were numerous and several of them could have caused the loss of the model. How many people didn't spot them like you did ended up with hill confetti?

"1. The quality of manufacture is superb."

With respect Peter the manufacturing flaws have been laid bare for all to see in this thread, why such a resistance to acknowledge the seriousness of them? Priority should be given to structural integrity not a pretty, shiny, pattern.

20/02/2019 18:09:22

More problems Peter? The price of this kit really is undefendable with so many factory created defects. I hope you don't find any more...

Thread: Cutting holes in balsa ribs

If you can find them buy a set of Brian Gaskin's Softbores.

Storm in a tea cup.

Nice work. No concern on motor cooling?.
Thread: my dremel drill
06/12/2018 10:28:36
Would a good blow through with an air line or compressed air help? I killed a dremel last year cutting lots of CF, dust got inside and created all sorts of problems and it died almost immediately.
Thread: Redshift F3F

The more I see this come together the more I'm sure I'll never buy anything from this company.
Thread: If you love the Typhoon
03/12/2018 21:02:12
It's commendable that they're restoring one and I'm looking forward to seeing it fly, however I find it laughable that they claim to be restoring a 'combat veteran' when from what I can see they don't have the wings, undercarriage, any engine cowl parts or any of the empenage. I'm happy to be corrected but I can't imagine they'll be much left apart from a few tubes and some data plates, just enough to class it as a restoration and not a recreation.

Interesting comparison. So given you've highlighted several deficiencies I assume you've volunteered your services to help make a change?

Or are you just taking the benefits and giving nothing back apart from criticism?

And an additional 4 pounds a year.
