Hi Tony

How is the lightning looking do you have any pictures?

As soon as it is available I will snap one up and a small hawk will be awesome too.

Cheers woody

Hi Tony,

I am currently building the sabre with the FMS 4s Fan I was going to use a 4s 1500 pack or do you think that this is a bit crazy?

Both myself and a friend of mine have both had a nightmare with them, they couldn’t run a bath let alone a business customer service is absolutely paramount these days as it’s so easy to go elsewhere. And they have absolutely no clue about that whatsoever. I would just tell people to go to motion rc in the eu great service and fast delivery

Thanks for the info guys,

The Service from the uk supplier for Freewing parts is absolutely shocking.

Cheers Woody

If you are unable to install a can, then the best Pitt’s muffler for it is the Evolution 33 muffler.

Hi paul,

Can I ask is the show worth visiting on a Friday? I have heard that in the past traders have not been open on the Friday and it just wasn't generally as good as the weekend, I have always been on a sat in the past but this year Friday suits me better.

Thanks james

Hi Ben,

I will get mine down and check the cg tomorrow for you, I'm sure it's around the stock cg and it flies inverted with just a little forward stick as that's how I like it, my ignition battery is on the motor box it's a 2600 li ion and my receiver battery's are in the back of the fuse I'm using 2x lipo's

Yes it is nice, the pilot is the hanger 9 30% pilot head

It's the perfect scale and the colours of it are spot on.

It has a 3w55i and an mtw td75 can with JR servos all round

I too didn't use the fuel tank and tubing I used a flowmax one from the prop guy

I also had the same problems as you with the rudder horns!

I would go for a westwings swallow, simple to build and a nice model,

slightly over budget at £20

I use tamiya masking tape and peel off when touch dry.

Its the best I've found.

Thread: DLE 20/petrol engines - remove throttle return spring?
19/04/2014 22:58:56

I disconnect the spring on all my petrols, but I also use a good quality digital servo, it's surprising how much of a difference a good servo on the throttle makes,

i disconnect the spring as if the servo is fighting it it will draw a lot more current out of the flight battery's, and I've seen servos burnt out because of it

Thanks guys.

cs the invasion stripes are done with 3m vinyl masking tape and I used some tamiya masking tape also.

Graham thanks for answering the question as I didn't really know the reason behind it but it works well.

Im not sure what to fuel proof it with yet as I think the eze cote resin will look to shiny, I have some Jp fuel proofer

but am not sure what to thin it with that won't affect the paint, I think I will have to try a few test pieces.

Thanks Danny

I will take a look at those articles.

A piece in the mag would be great, cant remember the last time I saw such an article in rcm&e.

I've been looking on the net seems like chalk is a favourite? Anything would help what paints and colours ect.

Cheers woody.

If anyone knows any good weathering techniques of how it would be best to go about dirtying it up then id love to hear how its done.

Its now been sprayed with dulux emulsion mixed with Halfords screenwash as per this forum,

its coming on quite well and I am pleased with the results there's a bit more to do roundels ect and then I will look at weathering it as it looks a bit to clean!
