Thread: Craig's first build Ballerina
06/03/2016 16:45:01

An easy way to make a cowl is to use nylon tights and epoxy. I saw this system in a build article in RCMW Speedy build,Jul 15, also in March 16 Mini Cavu build. I have made cowls for Mini Jazz and Jocasta using this method and am happy with the results. As an experiment I made one using WBV (Wilco) this produced a good looking cowl but did not harden leaving a slightly floppy unit which could still be used.

Pictures in my album.

Thread: Preparing to move house

Boxes for packing.

At the time of our last move (12 years ago) we got our boxes free from the nursing home SWMBO worked at, they were the boxes that the OAPs 'nappies' came in. Worth asking at local nursing home. An offer of a small donation may help.

Andy48 suggested getting the removal men to do all the packing for you, I recently got a quote for that service and was shocked to see the cost - £2500 face 7

I think I have persuaded SWMBO ,we are too old to move

Thread: Tandem wing Design
14/02/2016 19:55:26

Do not forget the Miles M 35 Libellula. I once had an argument with an ex Miles worker who insisted it was a canard, not as I understood, a tandem wing.

Thread: Do you think some sort of registration system would protect the hobby from rogue flyers?
11/02/2016 10:39:32

Part of the 'rogue flyers' problem is due to dealers selling models without adequate directions regarding correct and legal use. Many trade outlets are only interested in sales and may be un-aware of the legal aspect of flying the models.

If adequate information was included with the models much of the 'rogue' flying would be avoided.

Note - I am referring to 'models' not 'drones' as all types of models are capable of being flown in a rogue manner.

Thread: Cardboard for flying

Cardsharp - built from RCM&E free plan about 12 years ago.

Not very successful due to diesel soaking into card . Trying to start (PAW 15) engine pulled mount out of fuselage.

Thread: Six Nations Rugby Union 2016

A 'daft lad' who deserved a lifetime ban from the game.

Promotion to team captain sets a bad example to youngsters starting to play.

09/02/2016 12:42:22

I am not a great follower of RU ( I prefer to watch RL) but when I heard the disciplinary record of the latest England captain I hoped they were whitewashed in every match.

Thread: Do you put a name and address label in your models?
09/02/2016 12:35:38

In the past I put my name and address on but have not done for some time. I do however put my BMFA number on.

When our political leaders decide to follow the US example we will have to put our registration number on.

Thread: A Good News Multirotor Story!
15/01/2016 12:16:19

Multi rotors are very useful tools for many jobs an can be used in situations where access is difficult. I remember some time back reading Peter Lowe's column where he used one to check out his house roof tiling, (oops that is not actually legal) to save having to climb a ladder.

Sadly they are too often misused which creates a negative public image.

This applies to much modern technology and the negative side is always stresses by the tabloid press.

Thread: Replacement for old brushed motor.
15/01/2016 11:51:38

Those figures give about 70W/lb and should be fine for relaxed flying in fairly calm weather.

The majority of Americans believe in 'the right to bear arms'

They also believe that John Wayne was the all American hero.

Thread: A Different Take On The Ducted Fan
13/01/2016 16:45:49

Centrifugal fans driven by 'mighty midget' motors were used on RTP models back in the 1950s.

That is the first I have seen for RC, well done !

Just goes to prove - 'more than one way to skin a cat'
