|Thread: Veneer lifting problems|
I use masking tape in the absence of weights and a water based wood treatment with talc to seal the wing if I intend to dope over foam.
I've used new veneer cut in to match large areas and reglued lifting veneer cracks as a means of repair, with both I've used Copydex and an iron when it's dry to finish.
It works well.
|Thread: Ammo Box for Lipos ??|
I reckon if a load went up all together it may force the lid or seal but with explosive force?
No, I doubt it very much.
Not the old 'without holes it'll become a bomb' warnings again. An ammo box will contain a burning lipo without any ventilation.
|Thread: Flair Models - a question|
When I contacted Dean he told me that he was winding down the company as he could not run it how he wanted to and that there are no plans to restart the kits.
A defib will give you audible instructions as to how to carry out CPR when it's activated so you are not completely helpless whilst waiting for assistance. They are 'intelligent' in the way that they will only administer a shock if they detect a heart in fibrillation.
Will it be hooked up to a permanent charge or will it be stand alone?
|Thread: Alternative servo linkage|
RDS is way the scale guys do it. It takes up no more space than the thickness of the servo and is a direct drive system so delivers plenty of torque, it has to be set up accurately though, with the bend right on the hinge line.

|Thread: Southern Model Show 2019|
I saw those, they are quite intriguing, what are the benefits over a clunk tank.
The same stand was selling Excel model blades for 99p a tube, the guy who sells the tools on the open air stand is always worth a look as is the second hand parts stall and the bring n buy. I even ventured over to the model boats to listen to the submarine talk.
Oh.....and a few gallons of Southern glow fuel.

Model of the show for me was the Moki powered Yak, it ticked all the boxes.
It has two.
One for the belt and one for the disc.
What do you mean by a table? One can easily be made to suit.
|Thread: Broken servo arm screw|
They are available and a very useful addition to a tool kit, especially if you do your own mechanics but they're hard to come by, I'm not sure if they go down small enough for servo screws though. Filing the face flat, punching it and using a burr in reverse could be an option.
|Thread: Brian Winch|
Brian was one of the modelling institutions, he was there when I started the hobby, active when I left and still part of it when I came back to it, his knowledge was encyclopaedic, his wit and humour was typically Oz, his advice was solid and articles actutely readable, to be honest he was my principle reason for buying RCM&E.
He will be sorely missed, my sincere condolences to the 'Wizards' family.

|Thread: Hands free mobile calls|
We have many laws that can't be policed but that are still passed so that there is specific legislation to use when a perpetrator is actually caught and taken to court to provide a framework for prosecution and guidelines for sentencing, not having enough bobbies on the beat isn't a reason for not passing legislation.

The implication that was made is that an emergency vehicle should also be covered under any such ban as they are also distracted by conversation and info being relayed, it's not a logical comparison however as emergency service drivers have additional and constantly assessed training to exempt them from any such ban.

That's not a logical comparison as emergency service drivers are trained and assessed in running commentary driving at high speed, members of the public are not.

I agree with Cuban.
If you are going to legislate against hands free use based on distraction then the same points should be used for carrying children in the back seats, having an argument with your passenger or listening to a heated debate on the radio.
|Thread: Hospitalised, my own fault - but ?|
What was the reaction at the hospital when you told them how you'd received the injury?
|Thread: Electric Cars.|
What's going on here?
|Thread: Single servo ailerons|
As this has been touched on, if anybody has a model with a single servo operating both ailerons but wish to change to a two servo setup, the way I've done it is to use a pair of mini servos side-by-side in the central wing cutout, their combined width is only just greater than a single standard servo, you can then make up a set o custom push rods to run to the aileron arms and set up using the benefits of a two servo method
