Thread: What's the main radio brand you use 2017?
04/02/2017 19:05:01

Interesting point MattyB I bought a Spektrum module for my 72mz JR 9303 because I really liked the feel and heft of it and did not like the look or feel of the then newer style xg11, then as a backup radio bought a Taranis and really fell in love with it, the one feature I really like is I can take that same Spektrum module and put it in the Taranis set up the control throws accordingly and I'm good to go. I could also plug a FrSky module into the JR and reverse the process.

Thread: 'Printed' wing ribs

Simon I don't think I will ever have the knowledge to program a 3D printer but the technology fascinates me, I was prompted to search for other objects made in this manner and came across THIS I did take not the reference to weight several times throughout the video.

Ok I now see the issues with weight, absolutely amazing what can be done with a 3D printer.

JR at the moment with a mix of JR Spektrum Rx's, gradually changing to FrSky, would have stayed with JR but don't really like the look and feel of their new style Tranny plus the versatility offered by my Taranis is unmatched by any of the major brands except maybe Multiplex and they are not so readily available this side of the Atlantic.

Thread: 'Printed' wing ribs

Don't know anything about this kind of printing but is it possible to "print in" the spar notches? also could you not print a few cross members between the top and bottom frame of the rib or was this tried and came out too heavy.

Thread: Nigel Hawes Tucano

your'e right Colin, I bought mine quite a few years ago along with the Tornado ( still unbuilt by the way) thinking of EDF power instead of rear props. The website is still a good source of build pictures, I did not use the the plan for the Tuc just laid a straight line down my board and went from there, lovely flyer no vices at all you will not go far wrong with this model Tom/Richard.

I didn't know BVR was still active, that's Nigels own website I believe. I actuaiiy bought both my Tuc kits from this site, still have one not built, if Nigel is still cutting kits go for it.

Looks really good Tim, not sure wether the wheels show off the model or the model showcases the wheels but it is really good looking.

Silly me that's a contra rotating motor isn't it Colin, thought it was the New Years celebrations clouding my vision. 🍹🍹🍷

03/01/2017 01:35:17

Colin do you have a three or four blade prop fitted?

02/01/2017 17:24:34

Very nice Colin I like it.

Thread: Canadian Chipmunk markings
23/12/2016 22:01:37
It almost looks like a reverse image of a provincial flag but which one I cant say as most provinces don't have five idifferent symbols in their shield and these five look to be symbols from different provinces.
I will have to consult withother club members as I have only been in Canada since 1974 it could be from way earlier.

Thread: New Laser engines. What do you want?
05/12/2016 22:09:02
Richard I agree glow is great for model engines, powerful for their size and relatively light, that said living where I do glow fuel is expensive and has to be brought to the island, sometimes onspecial order adding to the cost, with the petrol eengines now available and the low fuel consumption of the four stroke gas engines it really is the way to go for most of us in our club here,. electric for the smaller models gas for the larger ones not everybody's choice but one that works for certain people.

John I don't know what the postage would be to Canada or what tax I might have to pay, ( it's usually very little on model stuff ) but your 70 at 180 uk pounds equates to $305 Canadian and the OS 56 is $420 Canadian plus 11% tax and whatever the shipping would be I'm guessing $15-$20. Honestly your 70 is a far better deal.

At the moment I am trying to move away from glow into petrol as the fuel for glow engines is not only expensive but hard to find here on the Island.

Thread: over powering a model?
02/12/2016 20:19:29

How heavy is the model Phil? You don't state your reason for wanting to fit a larger engine.

I have an older version of the Sig Rascal 40 and it is more than adequately powered with an OS 52 four stroke swinging a 12x6 prop and it weighs a little under 6lbs, you can even prop hang if you have the skill (I don't by the way) also has the power to handle floats if you wish to fly from a water runway.
