The four burning are in the under wing pods (2 in each pod) that have the red and white stripes

Would someone please explain how the rigging wire spreader rods are made and fitted at the mid point where they cross over. Thanks in anticipation.


Hope this picture helps you. This is on a Tiger Moth

Saito still makes the 30 and 40. Or if you can find the ASP/Magnum/SC 30's

The laser exhaust on all models can be positioned pretty much any which way one wishes to (except towards the carb that happens to be just next door on the same plane)

May I point out that the swastika, is a budhist religious, symbol and not just as we see it here in the west as a Nazi symbol of terror. Buddhist temple which I have visited have tiles all the way up the tower to th top

Hindu/Buddhist/Jains religious symbol actually. The only difference being that the ones we use are all anti-clockwise

Andy, i have a P40 to build at some stage and that one is earmarked for a RAF desert camo. I just cant resist the sharks mouth

SR71, that stuff looks good but its not cheap. I was wondering what i could achieve with the cheapest foil i can find in sainsburys but again i wasnt sure about what it would do to the radio and compound curves are also a concern


Take a look at what Danny Fenton said on his Hawker Nimrod thread on using foils

Look for his post of 27 Nov at 1113 Hours a bit lower down on the page

Thread: Trim reversal in OpenTx
05/12/2019 15:15:44

Pete it was all in lighter vein. Yes a good understanding of computers help and coming from Futaba background is no help.

I don't have any OpenTx but have a Graupner set that has been a steep learning curve. A manual originally written in German, that is translated to English by some one in far east further muddies the water

05/12/2019 11:07:20

In my opinion the Open Tx and some other brands as well have been programmed in a way a computer programmer/code writer thinks and not necessarily a pilot thinks. Especially pilots of certain vintage (read age) wink 2

Danny, I think you are getting better at it (the metal work) with each stage you completewink

Superb job and thanks for the videosyes

Agree regarding the Flite Metal, the finish is completely dependent on the the substrate finish. It has sot be smooth and hard

You’ll be wanting it left handed next

Now that's an idea! How about a Laser single (155/180) rotating clockwise? Is that a possibility?

21/11/2019 15:08:34

Does all this talk of new wish lists etc mean that the Laser Petrol 180 project is dead and buried?

I (we) knew you were going to try that foil wink

And we say it looks good, go on with ityes

I can own up to influencing at least one engine sale to a fellow flyer. A 100 was recently bought by a friend on my urging and bidding and allowing him to fondle my new in box 155 wink.

Or you could just read the number off the crankcase...oh, wait..

This is why i stamp sizes on current engines

By far the best method of all. I would go with thisteeth 2

I've always used pi r squared x height for volume of a cylinder, I am intrigued now so will have to take the head off and measure again. Lol

That perfectly works for calculating the swept volume as long as we know the bore and the stroke.

For example if the laser 75 had a bore of 26.42 mm (radius of 13.21 mm) and stroke of 22.22 mm

Applying the formula give us a volume of 12.18147 cc

Or in other words a radius (of bore) of 0.52 inches and stroke of 0.875 inches will give you a swept volume of 0.74 cubic inches

Another tip on silver soldered steel joints is to ensure that all flux residue is cleaned off.

Best way I have found is to soak the joint in solution of caustic soda. This will neutralize all acid and leave with salt and water which can be rinsed off with plain water. Parts dried and oiled up/painted to prevent rust build up.

With the throttle barrel fully closed, the only way an engine can continue running is by sucking in sufficient air from some other opening. Assuming that there indeed is no air leak, it means that the barrel is not fully closed. Have you tried disconnecting the throttle pushrod and moving the throttle arm manually to see if the barrel closes any further and the engine stops? Also make sure that the set screw retaining the throttle arm is not loose allowing the arm to move without actually moving the barrel.

But have to agree with others. You problem is actually a good problem to encounter

Hello! Peter,

Both aircraft sport "Brookland" on them. Looks like services of a common pilot were availed wink

Thank you folks for the kudos. I am relived as this had been a long pending project. Still some odd bits to add and some tweaks to make which will happen in due course.

Can't thank enough all the help I received in various ways from so many folks. Especially you Peter. Thank you once againyes

Chris , the model has a Laser 150 at the pointy end running an APC 16x8
