Very, very nice

THat looks a nice colour scheme

There is no point in staring at a lot of bits and an empty building board.

Just one thing that I would ask.


There is one thing that I truly hate and that is a scale model in a non scale colour scheme.

Call up Google search and look at images

I use lemonade bottles my self as they tend to have fewer ribs.

Tiny screws to hold it down from ModelFixings (Order NOW to have them tomorrow)

I also use proper canopy glue.

My problem is that I don't have any models needing repairs.

I do have a lot of prototypes that have been flown a few times and now clutter up the workshop with useful gear in them.

Could doing a major salvage operation to remove everything of possible use for future designs be considered for inclusion?

The final operation being a bonfire...possibly on the 5th of November.

Well, today was the day! Headed out to the field early, 20degC. Wind gusting to 10kph.
The RF4 took off after a short ground run without any problem.
One of my more capable clubmates took the fist few llights, and we did some fine tuning of the throws which improved the handling even more. It is very impressive in the air.

Thanks Peter.

I am glad that you are so happy with it.

Wishing you many more happy flghts

I suggest that you learn to add a link properly

You click on the symbol above that looks like a motorcycle helmet with goggles

Then press control and V

I have run hundreds of engines over the years including unsilenced speed engines on tiny props and everything from .010s up to unsilenced 10cc Nordecs.

The only one that I can never forget is the OK Cub 29.

Ah yes! Carefully stored in the top of a tree for the last 6 months.

What I really can't understand is that he has used the same pictures at least 4 times. Perhaps he believes that 12 pictures are compulsory

I strongly reccomend Thixofix as the best contact adhesive

Because wood glue between two sheets can take ages and ages to dry

A perfect morning so I was able to test fly my enlarged American Dragon

45" span.500 plus q.inches, weight 2lbs 14 ounces.

Very aerobatic but not as precise asmost of mine because it has a Clark Y wing set at slight positve incidence.It needed a lot of extra down elevator for inverted.

No plans, sorry!! Butr you can get the original on Outer Zone. enlarge them and modify for electric of just build for an 09 glow

Very good

But your mobile phone does not seem to have a macro setting. Stand back a bit

If you can't silver solder there is a way that works quite well and even if some of the solder gives it will provide some elevator control

Take your piece of brass and drill the hole for the wire. Now drill a second hole just touching it to give a figure eight hole.

Slide your elevator joiner into the tophole and a short peice of the same wire into the lower hole.

Bind firmly with tinned copper wire and then solder everything properly.

This will give a better joint that just a drilled hole which has no mechanical way of stopping rotation

When soldering a strip of brass to the wire silver solder is vital.

We used to make out own for controlline stunt models

Modelfixings.It will not be a preselection but you can choose all the sizes that you want in various sizes of packaging.

Which reminds me,I am running very low on my range of sizes.

I use a 48" X 12" melamine covefred shelf from B&Q covefred with 10mm thick self adhesive cork tiles available on Ebay. These are easy to put up on the building bench and remove. The cork tiles hold pins well.

I have two so I can build two wings at once. See one of my Build blogs.

I also have a much shorter wider one for some of the strange models I build, (MAK 15 MP) ot wider wings (Easter Eagle Senior)

If your supermarket sells flowers the film they use to wrapround the bunches makes greaat plan protection film.

Well the stuff from Waitrose does and the nice ladies will give you a wad for free!!
