Thread: Silicon fuel tube rotting?
08/08/2019 12:52:36
Posted by ROSS MANSELL 1 on 08/08/2019 10:13:31:

TYGON appears to be the scientific tube that is impervious to fuels/oils etc...expensive.. Its yellow in colour and has the name every 300mm down the tube to show its genuine.

I have had that stuff rot in pack. The pack had slimy precipitation at the bottom and all over the tube. Instead of investigating what it was I preferred to throw it all off. That stuff will also harden over time when in contact with petrol. Ultimately started using either Viton or PU type petrol tubing

Thread: Petrol to glow

In short, Yes!

Unless the bung, pipes etc are compatible with both glow fuel and petrol

I work for Falcon. Don't think Richard has a spare cowl, as the ARTF's were done years ago, and i unlikely that there would be one lying around.
Give him a call. He has a mill for his business premises, around the corner from the above address.

Hello Paul

Would Falcon be able to supply a set of wing tubes and phenolics for Tony Nijhuis 13 feet Wellington?

Damn now I need to buy lipos instead of the life I have just bought ! Thanks Manish.

Unless you are using high voltage servos and the model requires all that torque why not go ahead and use the LiFe?

Even more stupid while we are at it, what does a power box do? Ditto re the simple days. While I do use solid state switches nowadays.

It's a regulated switch made by power box. Gemini indicates twin input and output (the do have single switches as well). Advantage being the switch fails open in case of component failure and no moving/sliding parts

No it will not/ can not step up the voltage from 6.6 to 7.4v.

Hello David and Beth

Once again I am a subscriber! Does cost a bit more to subscribe overseas but noting like holding the mag and reading through.

Can I request that the subscription be started with the Aug 2019 issue please? The one that has the Sedbergh plan?

Thread: TN large scale Wellington Bomber

Met a gentleman at Weston Park show who is going to put 2 Saito 33R3 engines into the Wellington he is building - reckon that will sound almost scale!

The new UMS 55cc 5 cylinder petrol being retailed by Morris should be even better for scale sound. But in the interests of economy I would keep mine to two stroke petrol smiley

Have got down a pair of retracts from Unitracts. Fantastic service and solidly madethumbs up

26/06/2019 19:25:17

Steve from LMA did an article on the Wellington for the LMA Journal. Anyone have a copy they could share?

26/06/2019 19:23:59

No doubt 2xLasers are going to sound fantastic. I was looking at the DLE 20 since my local seller had the 20 in stock. For the DLE 30 or the Zenoah 26 I will have to get them from abroad.

Lasers are another option but want to go petrol route. If only Jon could release the 180 petrol

26/06/2019 17:01:54

Hello!again Scott

Contemplating on the power plants for the Wellington. What engines did you use?

I was thinking of using 2 x DLE 20's but Mr.TN advised against that plan. Probably will have t get 2 x 30cc DLE's

Thread: More good service from Just Engines
