|Thread: NEW POLL - Has home isolation prompted you to start trad' building?|
Lockdown has finally given me time to clear out my shed and do the building I had planned for the winter 2 years ago. First balsa building for more than 20 years. I've also subscribed to this Forum and to RCM&E Digital for tips, backissues etc.
First; for anyone working in health services, many many thanks, hope you all get rewarded. And for anyone in RC model business still working please be careful and take time to stay safe sending out orders (like mine)!
I now have "mass produced" fuselages on jig for kits purchased at a show last year, West Wings Pinto. Cambria Elan 100, Cliffwhacker, Astro Hog (from plan, not started yet). Pinto wings in progress - it's a lovely simple kit with great wood.
I'll be here on the Forum for advice a bit ! Next up will be something to spray the models with, i'm getting to grips with airbrush vs mini spray gun vs touch up gun vs spray gun, needle sizes and compressor noise, HP and CFM. So much to understand just to do some painting!
|Thread: Saito FG19-R3 and small gas engines, how noisy|
Thanks for your info on this and sorry about late reply. I gathered that it was not too powerful and a bit heavy and my model should have correspondingly large wing, short nose and long tail ! I had watched the video before but not really listened to what he was saying, and yes he says it is "quiet", might go for the glow version now I have discovered the price difference though !!
PS Maybe someone associated with engines could stitch together lots of MP3 of different model engine/airframe noises, tickover, slow pass, full power - a bit like the old vinyl LPs of steam engine noises our Grandads used to buy, it must have been done somewhere.
I see there are a few postings on here about gas engine noise, and an RCME article back in 2011. I am interested in a Saito 19cc FG19-R3 engine, possibly with a ring exhaust (I like the sound, which seems to be the only point of IC Vs electric). It would be great to have some advice about whether it would be feasible to get below the BMFA 82dbA limit with this engine. Happy to use big prop and limit RPM if it helps. Its a lot of cash to part with if this is going to be a challenge.
Many thanks for any info, regards Bob
