Hi Roy

There is a mobile phone mast less than 50 yards from my local slope launching/landing area. My only problem so far was flying into the mast - bad pilot, nothing o do with interference !!

My Piwakawaka with 200W motor.4 9g servos & Cirrus Rx glitched badly.

Partly cured by pointing the Tx ariel at 90degrees to the model.

What do I do with the breather ? I seem to recall reading that there is an optimum length for the breather pipe. How long should it be ?

Thread: Dealers-Good/Bad
15/03/2008 10:27:00

Back in October 07 I bought 4 off 9g servos from RCMDirect.

I used 1 immediately and put the other 3 in my spares box untill Wed 12/March when I found that one was locked solid.

I rang the dealer and with no quibble they offered a free replacement, this arrived today 15 march and I was not asked to return the defective unit.

Great service

Bought a small bluebell motor for a shockie, ran well, flew well.

Unfortunately pilot error caused heavy arrival resulting in shaft snapping at base of threaded portion.

No spares available!!!

Thread: Whats the best flying wing?
21/02/2008 13:37:00

The Wildwing from BRC as sugested above.

With a speed 400 and 8 cell NMh an American forum refers to this set up as a 'mild wing' but is still great fun especialy at the price.

Needs a good hefty launch, more so in calm conditions. Mine has been modified for bungie launch

Thread: FOD and the electric motor
21/02/2008 10:20:00

Electric motors, of all types have, as an esential component, very powerfull magnets.

These magnets can easily pick up any stray bits of ferrus metal laying around on your work bench, in your car or at the field. If said bits stay in your motor when you try to start up can result in a burnt out motor or speed controller. Do'nt ask how I know this!!
