I have one Geoff, It's great. Easy to set up and has loads of good features. I bought it after I dropped my JR DX9, mainly due to the price. no complaints so far.

Got it controlling my Cessna.

Thanks McG.

I had another fit/seizure on sat AM, so spent the night in hospital with pretty nurses sticking needles in my arms. They can never get blood out of me, so I have holes in both arms and hands and loads of bruises....LOL

I have been busy today tho, just waiting for pics to load.

I have been looking at MicroAces Depron model kits for a while now, but there was an issue with supplies of the micro Rx, ESC, and servo blocks.

That is now resolved , thanks to Jon, the main man, and I promptly ordered the Scrappee Trainer, along with the Spekky gear.

Good as Gold, he got all the orders out before he went on his hols....Got mine yesterday, and got stuck in today.

This will be a totally new way of doing things for me....the only thing I ever built in depron, was a shuttle from startrek based round a co-ax medivac heli.

The bare bones, cut from the laser cut sheet of 2 mm Depron.

The U/C legs are cut from plastic and help strengthen things up.

img_20200724_130331.jpg

Here you can see the instruction manual, and the wings on their sprues, and some laminated plastic depron parts ready for installation.

These kits are kind of a cross between card and airfix (Jons words)

Dry Fit.

img_20200724_172808.jpg

A lot of the work involves scoring and bending the parts ready for gluing, the scheme is pre-printed, as you can see.

img_20200724_183253.jpg

All the scoring is done on the back of the parts, with the back edge of a scalpel...........VERY carefully.

The skeleton of a plane with a tail wheel fitted.

img_20200724_183343.jpg

The skin glued to the bottom of the skelly.

img_20200724_194543.jpg

Here you can see the White, oblong locating tab that lines up the whole thing.

These things are very well thought out.

img_20200724_194607.jpg

The fuselage almost complete, I got to this stage in about 3 hours total.

All held together with POR glue. Apply the glue, leave for a bit and then.... BOOM !! it's on. If you need a bit of wiggle room, then join the parts straight away and slide the bits in/on/about for a good fit.

img_20200724_200255.jpg

The kit comes with a RX,ESC, servo brick, a brushed motor, a prop and prop adaptor, all the rods and gear, wheels etc, needed to complete the plane.

So far so good, I'll probably get a bit more done tomoz, as the weather is bad, and I won't be able to get out on my bike like I did today.

Thread: Seagull Boomerang or Arising Star - any difference at all?
16/07/2020 21:50:12

If you look closely there is an Irvine 46 in the tree hugger, my mate swears by them. Properly set up they go every time on the first turn, and drag the model round like a rag doll.

D.D.

15/07/2020 22:45:13

I have also taught people to fly with a Boomerang, both on buddy leads and in the grab the tranny mode.....

The boomerang will do anything you want. best on a .46. I have built in excess of 20 for people, and they are easy to repair. They will also fly extremely plump and overweight.

I passed my A on one , passed it on to a mate and he passed with it also. called it Tree hugger, as it ended up in one....

we got it back and wrote tree hugger on the wing, it's still flying

I still have one built from a kit, electric...Of course......

Here she is before the tree incident.

Well done John, Glad to hear all went well despite the zorst moment.

I have an NGH 10cc engine, I had trouble setting the throttle up to get a good usable range on the throttle stick. How did you get on ?

Thread: tissue decals
07/07/2020 20:33:54

Hi, I made mine from layered tissue applied with glue stick. this was my very first attempt so don't judge me too harshly.. The right hand one was placed incorrectly and I had to move it, hence the imperfection. I have not doped over the "decal". hth.
