Thread: What would be a good first Balsa build
17/09/2018 20:41:40
The Brian Taylor range are proper, traditional builds.
Thread: 2018 PSSA Mass Build - The Completed Model Thread
27/08/2018 21:46:28
The C.G. is definitely 70mm from the L.E. with models averaging 4lbs, do you know why yours is a pound over?
Thread: English Electric Lightning
20/08/2018 10:58:25

Yes, that's nice thumbs up

Thread: 1 Squadron RAF Hurricane Mk.IIc

Nice work Alan, where do you get your paint from?
Thread: Thinking of changing my car
05/08/2018 11:14:49
The RS4 is costing me about ?5.5k a year to run. This includes fuel which it drinks at a frankly astonishing rate, most long journeys start at the local Shell or BP, average on a long run of 20 ish, single figures when making progress. Big enough for models when flying, fun when you're not.

Audi RS4 Avant, all the car you'll ever need.
Thread: Mick Charles Models, Surrey closing down
24/07/2018 17:55:29
I used to use MCM most weekends back when Mick would be parked at one end of the counter, fag on the go and making acerbic comments at people just for his own entertainment. Dave was always super helpful and I missed having a quality shop when I moved so far away. Sad news indeed.
Thread: What percentage of pilots fly Mode 1 in the UK?

What percentage of pilots fly Mode 1 in the UK?

The best percentage. wink

Thread: New EDF Mini Jets- Sabre & MiG15 RCM&E 2018 Special

Are those cheater holes?
Thread: Hawker Hurricane MK1
07/06/2018 18:52:23

Yes, that's nice thumbs up

Thread: Power HD Servos
01/05/2018 21:00:58
Their high torque standards are my go to servo for aerotow releases, never an issue.
Thread: Hurricane Building Tips and Plan/Woodpack queries
29/04/2018 09:06:38
Personally I think that leaving a lipo deep in a wooden structure and charging in situ is asking for trouble. I've not seen the plan but assume the wing is held on with a bolt? It's 30 secs work to remove so I'd stick with wing removal myself.

It's just a matter of personal preference. I don't like torque rods and one servo because I never get them perfectly symmetrical so end up using two servos. If I use two servos why not put them in the wing? I've used this servo and linkage before and they really do give a slop free, precise movement with nothing sticking out of the wing.

Fair points. Playing Devil's advocate the wing might be heavier (2 x hatches and more complex servo mounts?) but then no long, heavy torque rods. You will have more weight away from the C/L though which will dampen roll authority, admittedly probably not to a degree we're likely to notice though. so yes, personal preference wins on balance. thumbs up

Where did you get them, might try them?

26/04/2018 14:54:32
Stephen, they look nice but I can't see the benefit unless I've missed something? The same end result can be achieved with torque rods and cheaper servos in the fuselage?
Thread: Top Gun Hawk Missing Canopy
15/04/2018 22:07:18
I have an unused canopy and base, make me an offer if you can't find one elsewhere. Sarik only have the canopy though.
Thread: New MOT Test From May 20th.......
08/04/2018 09:55:24
Just had a read but I don't think it's anything to onerous. Especially the 'fail if brake discs are missing, I think you'd know about that!
Thread: Matching ESC to motor & prop
23/03/2018 15:07:08
You'll probably get many views, my own one is that I allow plenty of headroom, generally an ESC +50% of my expected max load and a high C rating for cells. This helps to keep these components of the power train cooler and less stressed.

Thread: scale glider chit chat
22/03/2018 09:46:53
Hi Roo, question for you if I may, I applaud the enthusiasm for scale gliding but have to ask why we needed so many new threads and why we think these topics weren't already served by the existing gliding section?
21/03/2018 17:12:24
I think there's been rather a lot of threads.....
Thread: show us your scale glider
21/03/2018 09:15:53
I think the intent of Roo's thread has been ruined already, it was specifically stated that it must be a scale glider, for me that means ASK's, ASW's, vintage gliders etc. Not Wisels or foam.
