Thread: What is sub-trim?
25/06/2012 21:31:58

Sub trim is a setting that you access via the menus on your transmitter. Not all transmitters will have this function. You use sub trim to make fine adjustments to the control surfaces to center them when setting up the model for the first time.

The main trim controls, next to the sticks, are then used to trim the model in flight.


Thread: Magnum XLS 70 RFS
25/06/2012 12:05:43

The SC70 fs is a good engine. I have several SC engines and all are fine. I have the 70 fitted to a Big Stik which it pulls round very nicely. I also have an old SC52 which still runs perfectly.

Thread: Ordering from HobbyKing

I use the German warehouse and the delivery times are very good for within Germany. The selection of items is obviously no where near the selection available from Hong Kong.

Parcels coming from Hong Kong can take several weeks.

Thread: Help please i have built a warped tail!

Dampen the wood then pin or clamp it back into shape and let it dry. That should sort it out.

Hi James

Welcome from Lowersaxony. This is a great place to get advice and generally chat about our great hobby.


Thread: Advice re landing warbirds
31/05/2012 22:24:38


I have exactly the same models other than my P47 is the Hangar 9 job. I can not get them to land without nosing over either. Our patch is also small with soft mossy grass and trees on three sides. I can grease in all my other models but have to leave the warbirds at home until the moss dies off later in the summer. Small warbirds just don't like any surface other than smooth hard ground.

Not much help I know but I feel your frustration.


Thread: Futaba R617 2.4 rx aerials

Usefull thread. I also use R617s but was not aware that the AEs could be replaced. Thanks guys.


Thread: OS 46 LA
29/05/2012 17:18:54

My LA46 has the same amount of play as you describe. It starts and runs fine. I have it fitted to Kyosho Spitfire mounted inverted. I don't have any problems with it at all. It starts readily and runs very well in the air.That said I don't recall getting any rattling at low revs but I do get the fuel cominmg out round the prop driver as you decribe.

Thread: How many flyable models do you have?
21/05/2012 21:19:09

I have had to go back to 35Mhz on some models as my T7C only has 10 model memory and I hated seeing my good quality Graupner MX 12 and RXs sitting idle. So new models get the 2.4 RXs from the older but still loved IC kites that go back to 35 megs. Cheaper than buying another 2.4 radio.

Thread: Nervous passenger
21/05/2012 21:07:14

My first ever flight was in a Cessna 152 in the late 1970s from Sywell aerodrome. I can remember every second of the flight as if it were yesterday. Since then I have been fortunate to have had several flights in light aircraft thanks to my uncle having a PPL. He even let take me the controls every now and then.

Also many flights in C130s and various helicopters thanks to the Army. Never had the money to learn my self so I fly models. And you know that is good enough for me.

However when I win the lottery I'm off to Florida to learn to fly a P51. wink 2

Thanks Pete.

Allen thank you.

Now its becoming clear. It must be an esc with a built in bec as,as it is still working. Which is why I removed red wire originally. I fitted out the model over a year ago. Waiting for my skill level to catch up before flying.

The problem is I believe as Pete B highlighted. I have fitted the wrong type of ubec.

If I use the new ubec with a separate rx bty do I still leave the red wire removed on the esc plug?

Thanks for all your replies. Once the new ubec arrives and is fitted I will post the outcome.
