Good Man,

If you are in the market for new oil, I always use Bell-Ray H1R. Expensive but I only run 50:1 in the Zenoahs.

Whats the ratio for DLE engines.

You cant hear anything because the camera is in a water proof case for cycling purposes and fitting on my helmet.

I hope that wasn't too exciting for anyone.

got some footage.....Real Exciting stuff........ will upload it tonight, in the mean time here is what I flew today.

I was real rusty but it was good fun, and I was soon doing lazy 8's.

It is a T.T. Mini Titan for those interested.

That Astro turf is great for flying if only our patches were made out of it, and as level...........Man it would be Heaven. angel   I think I will build some smaller models to use on there more often.

I'm being silly mate, its more like 3 meters, 2 on the wings and another on the fuz. You should get one wing panel out of a meter of 26 " wide solartex. I have just been trying to find a photo for you but failed.

its funny really,when I give it a bang on the work top, it starts working.

surprisesurprise If in doubt give it a clout.....................laugh

It does sound like it's time for an upgrade Paul.

On a serious note tho, you do have to look after lipo's, cos they can burn your house down Matey.

Take care buddy.

Thats the problem Steven, no friends...........LOL.

I was thinking it may be too small for a print shop.

Thanks for the offer Richard, I might take you up on that later. I only have my cycle helmet and go pro type action camera strapped to it that I use for commuting. LOL

I enjoyed your articles BTW Mate. thumbs up

I thought you would like that one Barryt...........wink

I could have maidened at work back in the day, before they ruined a massive field by putting an astro turf pitch in with a 4 metre high fence round it. sad

Mind you I can still get a Heli round it and planes up to about 48" span. i will get some pics for you tomorrow.


31/05/2019 21:22:54

Thanks McG................. Jeux sans Frontières, Mon Ami...laugh

Yes Percy, I know............get her in the air...................Oh apart from the pilots I am waiting for, and the Cessna logo on the tail fin.

I made this. but I don't know how I can get it made into a sticker.


I am going to do some taxi tests on the field at work tomorrow, I have to work so may as well use my dinner hour to the full.I will try and get some footage.

I am 100% sure that Percy is a Cheeky Chappie, don't you think so Paul.... cheeky

Where are you getting %ages from ? A battery checker ?

Can you monitor how much your charger puts back in, my ones give a figure for this. If so discharge a battery ( run the motor for 5 mins) and see if the charger replaces what you've taken out. if this is spot on or near, then it's your checker.
