I`m building a Cambrian ME 109, build thread will be started tomorrow with full spec etc. Once done i am going to do a Cambria KI61 Hein. I already have a Cambria Spitfire uo and ready to fly which someone else built, it is on 4s and a Sunnysky X2814 35MM 1250 kv motor on an 8x8 prop, it should go like the clappers on that set up. I also have a very old Cambrian P51 which i am converting to electric as we speak.......

thanks martin. i will look forward to seeing and reading your build thread as im sure it will help me with my build,

Hi martin.

What funfighter are you building. Have you chose a setup?

I am going to order one myself this week. Im going with the cambrian hurricane ( electric ). I have a turnigy 3536 1450kv to use in mine with a 9"or 10" prop not sure if to go 3 or 4 cell at the moment all depends on cg.

Hi Daniel

I have to say it was a 50/50 decision between buying a jig or “risking it”! The “risking it” won as storage of the jig would have been a problem afterwards and I did a more difficult fuz ok sans jig last year.

I spent time on getting the central formers and servo tray in and square and checking that the rears of both fuz sides met both in length and horizontally. I also used a long steel rule as a check.

Thats a great answer thankyou. I do have a slec fuz jig but was interested in how you went about it as one of these is on my list to build. I Look forward to seeing it finished.

Hi richard.

Looking good so far. A quick question about the fuse if you dont mind answering. because of the slot and tab design you do not need to use a fuselage building jig to get a straight fuse.

What a beaut ! That will look amazing in the air.good luck on the test flight


Thread: Funfighter thread, Cambria & Cambrian only, discussion & pics

hi martin.

thankyou for the quick reply. if i build one [ i will ] it would be a brushless setup as my club are an all electric club, i think i would have to build a hurricane as it is my favourite warbird. if you could do a build blog on here that would be great. i have 5 traditional builds under my belt all with built up wings etc...hmm 838 watts on 3lb plane should be fun! its gonna get small fairly quick i imagine.

07/07/2019 21:10:21

nice models! i have always wanted to build one of these. how much experience in building would one need to be able to put one of these together?


Thread: Successfully changing the AA batteries for the Lithium Ion pack in the spectrum DX6G2!!
15/05/2019 18:40:40

Hi guys.

I have fitted a 4000mah gens ace lipo into mine successfully without any probs.

Could be a silly question? but have you removed the foam packer from underneath the aa batt holder?


Thread: Here one for all you technical flyers
24/04/2019 17:54:07

Thats the same as me my hawk uses all our strip to get airborne. But once shes away what a joy to fly.

Do you have the upgraded oleos?

24/04/2019 17:40:34

Hi tony. My hawk lands really nice no bouncing.

Your saying its difficult to take off? Can i ask why


Thread: Inrunner or outrunner EDF ?
10/03/2019 15:53:07

Ah yes rc castle def better than £340. Its a jet worth keeping flying! Let us know when it arrives. Will be interested to see how long it takes to get here. Cheers


10/03/2019 14:23:27

When i ordered mine i ordered the outrunner version as it was £60 chepaer than the deluxe version. But when i opened the box to my surprise it was the deluxe version i had recieved! I got very lucky i guess.

Just a thought how about ordering another freewing hawk from motion but only buy the arf plus version? It comes with everything bar the edf unit which you have already and it only cost £180.
