We have also hooked it up to goggles and a head tracker, which was fun.

Here is our test vid, you can see a little more of how it's fitted here.

Thread: Phoenix cable?
21/12/2014 11:47:48

Here you go, I use one of these now as my original cable split where the jack goes into the TX, that'll teach me for resting the TX on my lap!

Works fine.

Thread: Fitting Wooden Props On A Petrol Engine
31/05/2013 17:55:29

It's good practice to loosen the prop bolts after a weekends flying, wooden props will indeed crush if left tight over time. I check mine at the start of each flying day.

Ply is flat, and difficult to form to the wing shape, ally is prone to splitting with vibration and awkward to glue.
I would and do lay up gear doors with several layers of glass cloth. I tape thin clear acitate sheet over the area, then mark on the acetate the outline of the required gear door/hatch whatever, then a layer of heavy duty cling film (the sort used for wrapping palletts) then lay up about 6-8 layers of lightweight glass cloth. After a couple of layers, mark with a sharpie on the cloth the outline of the door required, using the previously drawn shape as a guide, when you put the final couple of layers on the shape required is sandwiched inbeetween, once cured just cut out with scissors or a dremel. Hey presto, gear doors that conform perfectly to the wing.
Thread: Wing servo and flaps

I have found, with those white plastic bellcranks readily available, that in time, they go an off white colour and very brittle. I lost a 80  ish inch Harvard to this. Servo in the wing where I can now

I'm a building addict!!
 Yep me too
I'm halfway through a 100" Dauntless (Jerry Bates), then I start a 1/3 scale Avro 504K (short kit hidden in shed) then I start a 1/3 Pfalz D.X11 (hidden upstairs lol). That's me for the next few years

TN designs are ace to build, after the spit I built his Lanc(with the help of the short kit), and then his B17 (scratch built), but I sold those last year having moved away from leccy stuff somewhat. Every time I see Tony I ask him to double his B17 plan, i'd love to do a big version. He says he hasn't the time
Hand launch is fine, a good firm throw at a slight incline works well (I got a friend to launch mine). A similar thing to fly as the Ripmax Spit.

Here we go..
09/08/2010 19:30:05
Ahh, the TN spit, this was my first build, and I thoroughly enjoyed it  Flys well too, I used veggie power.
If I can work out how I'll add a piccy...
Looking good btw

Hi Walts,
It was the TN B17 I did a thread on, although I built the Lanc first I didn't do a thread, cos I wasn't on the tinternet
Lloyd, I amd having trouble logging into Groups, but there are piccys  on TN's website of our birds.
