|Thread: Fairey Gannet|
I got this plan sometime ago and it is a good basis for a really nice model, I was going down the electric route and was in the process of developing the power unit which consists of two motors and was building the gearbox to make it contra-rotating, then life got in the way but once I have my elderly parents moved I will get back to it, it is a cracking aircraft.
|Thread: Moon landing|
You are not alone Jim, I find it a little sad that actually it is taken for granted and somehow it is not of interest but I guess that is an age thing🥴 I well remember my Mum waking me up at 4.30am to watch the BBC and James Burke the presenter then catching it live from the states as a 10 year old I ate, drank and slept the space program and still have 10 year old’s buzz about it now, don’t get me started on the Apollo 13 mission, the stress! 😳🤒
|Thread: Who says flying thermal soarers is boring?|
where is the hotliner in the video?😳
that is an Xplorer 3 F5j thermal soarer I guess a 3.8 m model, a hotliner is a completely different animal, I have an Xplorer 2 and at 1.9kg flying weight is just as spritely but the 3 is sub 1.5kgs.
|Thread: Turning detective, can you help?|
Do you think you maybe mistaking Ulrich for Lanny Lanowski Percy? I had the great pleasure of meeting Lanny on several occasions in the 80’s he used to frequent the Fighter Meet at North Weald and as I recall he did attend a few of the early wings and wheel’s shows, he had with him a rc model of a P47 that had been built for him depicting his aircraft when he flew in the USAAF, a fascinating story he was a great teller of his exploits and he did survive a jet crash/ heavy arrival in the states.
|Thread: Ebay sellers...|
I would too embarrassed to even put it in the bin!🤣🤪
I have just got the Slite but have had the Dart to build for a while as I have a thing about flying wings should make an interesting back up model, thanks Andy for re- igniting my enthusiasm!! 👍🏻
Well I have got and made up the F3 RES legal bungee, just got to build the models now!🥴👍🏻
|Thread: Kings Lynn Model Shop|
Nicely put Jon 👍🏻
I have to admit I was a little surprised by this thread, sorry you are having problems but my experience is they are excellent, I have mainly dealt with Jack and he is most definitely on the ball and very helpful, they are one of my go to retailers.
|Thread: Ripmax ARTF stocks|
In the case of Sig kits, they did have a fire in the saw mill on site which maybe the cause of slow manufacture although I thought it was settling down now.
|Thread: Slite V2 build thread|
Seems a real pain getting the battery in there, looking at the plan it is designed around one kind of battery,
I ordered one when I got the kit, I will either use Multiplex or Jeti RX’s in the model as they are ok on 3.2 - 3.5v and keep a good eye on the voltage when flying, I am sure it will be fine, the other way would to make up a pack 2 sticks of 2
using possibly AAA Eneloop cells.
Or do what you did of course! 👍🏻

That sounds an excellent idea Andy, I must admit to being in the doldrums lately with my modelling and more importantly flying and this has hit a do it nerve.
That looks great Andy, love the colours, my kit arrived yesterday, my new legal bungee on its way from Seta in Germany as my ‘standard’ bungees were not so standard after all!🥴
Sounds like a great idea, although I do have some F5j models that languish in the spare room having been playing with slope and power models in recent times, I am sure I can dig something out although if it is 2m then I may have to build something.
P.S. Have just been checking my bungee's funnily enough with the view to use them and happily found them in very good order.
