Thread: What's flying over your house
19/07/2017 11:52:40

At long last I can post something here.

Last night over the house here in France flying high was looked like a jumbo jet with 4 fighter escort 2 on each side about 10 pm.

What is flying over our house now is the French air force display team practising for there air display over the race track some 10ins from here at L'isle Jourdain, Vienne, France.

Not as good as our good old Red Arrows.

Nice bike Manny, sorry about the accident after all the work you have done. What is the engine?

Hi Manny,

Hope you get them flying soon.

Cheers Alan

Hi Manny,

What is the weight differences? Looks great though.

Hi Manny,

Do you race the bikes? Sounds good about the Mirus, photos will be good of the electric conversion and of the flying as well.

Cheers Alan.

Hi Mannyroad,

Have you had the Mirus in the air yet?


12/03/2017 21:45:23

Hi Manny,

Did you have to make much changes to the front end to covert it to electric?

Hello David,

I look at this way, you could put a bigger engine in to increase the weight on the front to get the cg right. But that could mean going out and buying another engine, or adding 12ozs. Me I would see how it fly's with 12ozs up front first.

Will do Mannyroad. But not for a while, got to much to do on the house over here. Still trying to finish a model called the Pacer but to much is getting in the way.

Cheers for now Alan

Cheers Alan

Looks good Tony. You didn't say if you still have it or did I miss reading that bit.


21/02/2017 16:10:54

Hello Tony,

If you send me your photos I will post them for you

Hi Mannyroad,

When you covered the wings does the covering stick well to glass cloth or do you coat the glass cloth with something first.

Hi McG 6969,

Thanks for the information I will check out the DIY shops.

Cheers Alan

Mannyroad forgot to ask what did you glue the wing servos in with.

Hi Mannyroad,

I have read that something like Ronseal is ok for glassing as well. Never tried it though it's one of will do soon, as there is nothing so far you I have found here in France. But I keep looking.

How's it going with the build?
