Hi Peter, and many thanks for all those great designs.

I wonder, why we don't see WW1 designs? After all, they are just oversized models. What about something simple like a fokker E111 to start with?

Hi Danny and the lads, What a bummer, the Fury airframe is sulking on my building board, and I'm sulking in my armchair with 2 broken ribs and a broken arm (right one of course)

So, As someone famous once said, I'll be back

you've seen nothing, it's a national sport in France, we even have a national roundabout chicken team.

The french look on the highway code as a list of suggestions, some ideas to try out on a sunny day. I once challenged my ami Pierre why he'd made a particularly dangerous turn.

his reply?

because I'm French


Thread: Real metal on aircraft. Is it a problem for radio?...
22/06/2019 10:00:49

Hi Goys, Ive been wondering about this, I gave myself a wee treat and bought a new spectrum AR620 reciever, yes the one with the internal antenna.

The plan is to use it in my half built hawker fury. The problem is that the fuselage is covered in alloy to around half way back.

What do I do?

1 install the RX way back, beyond the tin stuff, I'd have to extend the servo leads a wee bit 2 buy a new RX, and poke the antenna out the fuselage each side 3 any brilliant ideas?


Thread: Is it now time for cyclists to wear an identifier and pay a tax?

John, I just cannot see how square wheels would fix things. Even the slightest flat on a bike wheel makes life uncomfortable. A wee experiment for you to try John. Trim the wheels square on the pride and joy in your hanger. I think you'll find that even takeoffs are oh so difficult

And Doc of course you should

I am a ultra keen cyclist, and I do pay tax. I pay road tax for my car, which damages the roads, pollutes the atmosphere, causes huge congestion. and can easily kill if I drve it badly.

When Im on my bike, none of tne above applies, yet, I'm still paying my tax, I think I should get a tax rebate for every hour that I spend rolling along.

Finally, riding a bike is a bit like a low inverted pass. Enormous fun

Thread: Transmitter / receiver issues, help needed pls
19/06/2019 23:25:09

Hi Daire, A wee bit more information would help. Normally there is one servo in each wing to control the ailerons. The two leads can be joined by Y connector, and connected to the servo output on the reciever. OR one lead goes to the servo output, and the other goes to a spare output, and the whole caboodle is sorted on the menus in the transmitter.

What certainly doesnt sound right is two sticks. ailrons are always controlled by one stick

what setup do you have

whate plane is it

are the batteries well charged

Hi, the order no is 26144 and I dont have a company name, just ernie

I've emailed them re permission, so it should be OK


19/06/2019 13:50:35

Of course, I'll dig out the file and get back


15/06/2019 09:43:18

Hi David, It's Eric here, Actually Donny, it's ernie.

Yes the etched parts are available from PPD in Lochgilphead, Bonny Scotland. They still have the artwork, and will etch you a set.


Thread: Aliphatic glues

Hi Gary, I reckon the sanding problem is an aliphatic thing. I do use it from time to time, but only when I need to move things about a bit, as it dries slowly

Why not try cyano, The thin stuff dries instantly, with absolutely no sanding problems. The thicker ones are a bit slower, but no sanding problems


Thread: S1581 Hawker Nimrod MkI
09/06/2019 09:29:46

Hi All, Any thoughts re position of the RX. There is quite a lot of alloy in one form or another around the nose. I've treated muself to one of the new spektrum recievers (the one with an internal arial)

Reports re range are excellent, even better than normal, but, I wonder?

Hi Thomas Wow, a solar powered plane sounds really interesting. It's one of these things that really interests me. Why not let us have some details

Hi, The wee hen faces forward on both sides, so its two sets of decals. What are you thinking of printing onto?


27/05/2019 08:28:47

Hi Stuart The background on this is lighter is lighter, and the colours stronger. It's difficult to get exact colours from photos, but this seems pretty close

A wee thought about the other side, is it exactly the same, or reversed

Hi Stuart

Here you are.

I've strengthened the colours a wee bit. I'm not sure if its better....what do you think. I'm quite happy to pick away to get it right
