Thread: A KIT for an electric glider

yes, ernie did sort himself out       I think I bought an Atrain, and it flew very well until it sort of fell apart in midair. Never did get to the bottom of that

Thread: RAF's Finest Biplane? Hawker Fury MkI
25/02/2020 10:09:19

Thanks all, I got in touch with Ed on the adress that Martin gave me. His website is a bit clunky because he'se working on it. He is most helpful, Ive ordered 5 feet x 10inches,+ the tools for application.

I'll let you all know how I get on

Good morning furious guys, and especially Danny

I'm experimenting on the Fury with aluminium finishing systems. Best yet is the mick reeves system, but, I would like to try FliteMetal. I've tried ordering from the website, and I've tried to email them, all with no result.

Help

Well, I've got a very nearly completed airframe. Some bits are covered, and finished yellow. It's the silver covering thats difficult. I'm using the mick reeves foil, its difficult. The finish underneath needs to be perfect. I've used Glass cloth, and about a zillion coats of primer.

Thread: S1581 Hawker Nimrod MkI
02/11/2019 12:45:28

Hi Danny and the fury/nimrod builders

My Broken arm seems to be working fine, so its back to the board..Some thoughts and questions

Ive started to make the wheels from the Mick Reeves foam. Of course, I needed hubs. Wow, the dished base of a rattle can is near perfect. and, if I need to save weight, I can mould some from plastic using the metal as a form.

Where do you get your oleos. Hobbyking seem to be out of stock

As ever, Ive been spending far too much time on the cockpit. Ill send some pix

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

Thread: Car indicators

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?
21/06/2019 13:47:18

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 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.
