Just caught up with your blog McG.....Stunning pics of the rib detail etc....I have said this before, but it's almost a shame to cover up such pretty woodwork. I am using more and more translucent films (cheap as Chips from HK) to cover my models. they look great with the Sun shining thru them..

Keep up the fantastic workmanship.

Sounds interesting Graham.... a bit of insider Goss....wink


Thread: Spektrum receiver advice please.

I have a couple of 6 channel Rx (spektrum) that have lost an Ariel, I keep them for bench testing and setting up as no great range is required. I hate to see useful stuff just thrown in the bin. I must stress here tho, that I would not use them in an aircraft I intend to fly.

Well Done Bjarne, it's good to see you back out there flying. I have been flying today too, but eventually the wind got too fast, but it was a great day out anyway.

All the Best


Thread: Spring 2018 is here...been flying?

As promised, some vid of the indoor session at work during Lunch, had an epic fail of the connection from the battery to the ESC just before take off


All soldered up now and working again, but what an anti climax. I had more success with the little Heli though.

It will be good to see the end results Tim, I have refurbished a few oldies myself, including a 45 year old Lancer.

Interesting stuff Matey.


Thread: How large scale electric can you go?

Check out some of the big Electric indoor stuff Adrian, it's amazing, I was watching a 10 ft 4 motor jobbie, and an 8 ft C-47 just yesterday. I know you are talking outdoors, but it's worth a look Mate.

Rubbish weather, so I am indoors in the sports hall at work, in my Dinner hour of course, before you all yell Skiver........cheeky, with some depron (4site) and some plastic (micro helis)


Might even get some pics and footage for a laff, EH??


Thread: where are all the ARTFs?
25/04/2018 09:15:19

Sussex models and Steve Webbs..........!!

Peoples interests change and things evolve. Shops without a web presence are probably doomed. My LMS has a steady trickle of customers and the Lads that work in there are great, but the shelves are getting barer and the glass cabinet at the front, always a place of wonder, is now nearly empty. I used to spend a good hour peering into there years ago.

Get building you lot, or if you buy ARTF, which I also do BTW, get the rest of the kit from a local, (if you have one left,) shop. They are always up for a bit of a haggle , so you can save money.

Bring it on Simon.

That is a good idea Geoff, I may well nick it....wink I too was wiggling sticks and wondering why there was no response..................

Thanks for the compliment by the way, I'm quietly optimistic for some more nice weather, however, that's why I built the fly on all the other days. laughlaugh

Yes Jim, it makes perfect sense, and it made for a smoother flight.

It's a cracking little model, and I think it would handle a bit of wind too.........

Keep 'em coming Matey..laugh

Maidened both models today....................YAY!! laugh

Both were non events, the Puddle Duck had power to spare and flew quite happily on 1/3 throttle. The first flight saw the rudder on the left stick, where it should be for mode two, but my thumbs were so rusty, that I decide to land and put the Rudder in the Aileron port (right stick), that felt better, and a more comfortable second flight ensued. I had to add 2 clicks of left trim and thats all.

Well chuffed..

The Boomer was the same, I put the watt meter on her before the maiden. The recommended prop is 14X7 on 4 cells, I used a 13x7, as I was worried about ground clearance, with the field grass being a bit tall.

I got 500 W at 30 A I reckon I would see 600 W with the 14x7. Same with 5 cells and a 13, also there is an option for 6 cells with a 12x6.

Happy campers.....laugh

I use these on my commute bike, a Crossrip3, The last lot I bought were just under £8 each, I have done 1763.95 miles on them without a puncture. They do armoured ones for a bit more cash.
